For students hoping to establish a career in academia, the various demands and expectations of holding a professorship can be daunting. It’s one reason Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering partnered with the University of Michigan and University of California at Berkeley to establish theNextProf Nexus program three years ago. The national mentoring workshop focuses on equipping senior-level Ph.D. candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career scientists and researchers with the tools they need to succeed in academia. The initiative is also in place to help diversify the next generation of academic leaders.

A $1 million award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will help researchers in Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering develop tactics to protect children from harmful emissions from controlled wildland burns. The initiative will provide equipment and new communications approaches in middle and high schools in Albany and Columbus, Ga., and Phenix City, Ala. Georgia Tech is focusing on the three cities because of their proximity to regular controlled burns, in addition to the communities’ lower socioeconomic statuses.
