Young Professionals “Boost” Program
The IEEE/OES Young Professionals branch invites you to participate in the leadership of the society by attending the meetings, by being involved in the diverse committees, and by helping with different aspects of the OCEANS conferences.
The IEEE/OES “YP-BOOST” program consists of recruiting 2 new YPs every year, starting on January 1st of the year following the selection, for a total of 4 YPs for a given year when in permanent regime. Candidates will be chosen for 2023 and will attend and participate in OCEANS 2023 Limerick (Ireland), and OCEANS 2023 Gulf Coast (Mississippi, USA), OCEANS 2024 Singapore, and OCEANS 2024 Halifax (Nova Scotia) contingent on available funding and if covid restrictions permit.
The duration of this program for each selected candidate is 2 years, corresponding to 4 OCEANS conferences, completely covered financially by OES.
The selected candidates to this program will then develop their relationship with the other professional and student attendees, representing a positive point for your professional career.
In order to apply to this program, you will be asked to upload 2 documents:
- Your curriculum vitae (1 page);
- A letter of application showing your motivation and describing how and where you propose to be involved (2 pages). For that, you can study the organization of the society to select one or several committees you are interested in working with.
Note: a Young Professional is a member who graduated with his/her first professional degree within the last 15 years. Students currently enrolled in a PhD program are eligible to apply. In order to be eligible to receive the award, each selected applicant must be a member of IEEE OES on or before January 1st of each year of the 2-year duty period.
The application process is open and submissions will be accepted until December 10, 2022. Please email your application and any questions on the program or the application form, to to Dr. Roberto Petroccia: firstname.lastname@example.org
