The KSEA is pleased to announce the 2021 Scientists and Engineers Early Career Development (SEED) workshop which will be held on December 14th (afternoon) – 15th (morning) in Garden Grove, CA. Since 2013, the SEED workshop has been offered by the Korean-American Scientist and Engineers Association (KSEA) and the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) to provide mentorship to, and help develop the careers of, junior Korean-American scientists and engineers ranging from Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers to early career professionals.
Date: December 14th (afternoon) – 15th (morning), 2021

The program will provide opportunities to discuss career development and emerging topics in the fields, and cultivate the development of mentoring relationships among participants.
