ABS 2022: WFAB Application

The goal of our Weaving the Future of Animal Behavior (WFAB) initiative is to advance the future of animal behavior science by supporting and promoting community and professional development for early career professionals through workshops, symposia, and long-term, multi-level mentoring. Workshop participants are early career animal behavior professionals, including pre-tenure faculty and advanced postdocs. We particularly encourage women and scientists from underrepresented groups in animal behavior to apply. WFAB is funded by the Animal Behavior Society and the National Science Foundation (IOS-Animal Behavior #1833455) and is a collaboration with Claire Horner-Devine from Counterspace Consulting.

In 2022, the WFAB workshops will have both virtual and in-person components, and are linked to the annual meetings of the Animal Behavior Society (July 19-23 2022). To be eligible for WFAB and travel awards to cover costs of attending the 2022 ABS meetings, you must:

  • Have recently obtained a PhD in animal behavior or related science. WFAB workshops are designed for pre-tenure faculty and advanced postdocs
  • Register for and attend the 2022 annual meetings of the Animal Behavior Society (July 20-23)
  • Agree to participate in one virtual workshop (July 8, 1-3pm EST) and one hybrid workshop (July 19, 11am-6pm EST, with breaks)
