Career & Research Mentorship

Our Wednesday mentoring meetings include the Sunrise Mentoring Meeting and Lifestyle Research Collaboratory. The one-hour meetings include Dr. Jun Ma, Dr. Ben Gerber and other researchers interested in lifestyle/behavior research. These meeting aims to offer ideas and feedback on planned research from an interdisciplinary perspective. For grant proposals, this may include discussion about study conceptualization and design, specific aims, methodological issues, partial drafts, and reviewer responses. We also provide input on manuscript development including structure and responding to reviewer comments. Individuals who present may return to future meetings, periodically, for ongoing support leading to submission of their work.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
