Women of ECE

The goal of the Women of ECE group is to build a sense of community for women in the Cornell ECE department at all levels (students, postdocs, faculty) and share relevant information.

Examples of group discussion topics:

  • How do I get 5 (!) recommendation letters?
  • What is the best way to land a good postdoc/industry job?
  • How do I solve my two-body issue?
  • How do I choose a good project to work on in my postdoc/faculty position in my Ph.D.?
  • If I TA during my grad studies will it help me get a faculty job?
  • How do I balance my career and family?
  • When I negotiate a faculty position or an industry job what kind of a startup/salary should I aim for?
  • How do I get a summer internship?
  • How do I know what's an interesting job?
  • How do I deal with (subtle) sexual harassment? When is it appropriate to speak up?

Important: Funds available for women@ece!

The ECE Women's Conference Travel Grants, Women's Professional Development Grants, and Women's Technical Exposure Grants are funded by a gift from the IBM Corporation, with the goals of assisting in the retention of the current ECE female student population, increasing the presence of female scientists in high-rank ECE related positions both in academia and in industry, as well as in the recruiting of female students pursuing both graduate and undergraduate ECE degrees.
