e-Mentoring Network in the Mathematical Sciences Blog

The American Mathematical Society is pleased to announce e-Mentoring Network in the Mathematical Sciences, a blog edited by Ricardo Cortez of Tulane University and Dagan Karp of Harvey Mudd College.

The blog will address relevant questions that students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty may have regarding their advancement in mathematics. The first posts include “Questions to Ask When Visiting Potential Graduate Programs” and “Building a Community of Mentors,” both by Cortez.

The goal of the blog is to reach and engage as many readers as possible, especially those who may not have sufficient mentoring at their current institution, and to connect students and mentors—to ask questions; provide feedback; and share links on meetings, networking and research opportunities, articles, non-academic career information, and other helpful resources.

Contributing bloggers will be Erika Camacho, Arizona State University; Rebecca Garcia, Sam Houston State University; Edray Goins, Purdue University; Herbert Medina, Loyola Marymount University; Talithia Williams, Harvey Mudd College; and Robin Wilson, Cal Poly Pomona.
