Next panel @research_money #RM_Ott19 on interdisciplinarity w/ @MarieFranquin @DSP_SPE, Ted Hewitt @CRSH_SSHRC, RR Runte @InnovationCA, Chelsea Gabel @McMasterU, and Stefan Leslie @MEOPAR_NCE
Q:What is interdisciplinary?
SL: not the same as multidisciplinary (which is many disciplines coming together), it is working at the interface of disciplines.
CG: engaged collaboration, working with multiple partners, political spheres, and multiple ways of knowing
Q: What is interdisciplinary?
@MarieFranquin : agreed! It's also about making sure top expertise comes together to make something better. Reaching out to those who can elevate your research.

#MillerTwitterTakeover What are your 3 main pieces of advice for early faculty years (first 1-2 years)? What are some of the DOs and DONTs you swear by? #ECR
1) Find out your uni's expectations annual & promotion-grants, papers, teaching, independence from prev. mentors. WCM 1/n
Independence from previous mentors can be tricky, esp for those that work with big cohort data, like ARIC. So, being clear what is expected is key. It's a must to know how papers are valued: #, quality, impact factor, citations. Also, for grants, will a K be valued? 2/n
2) Find a mentor TEAM. One person will not be enough. You want substantive & professional development mentors. You may want people that look like you & that's a good thing, but sometimes for people of color, those folks aren't in your field. Meet with them & listen to them. 3/n

Out today: β€œThe semiotic diversity of doing reference in a deaf signed language” Lindsay Ferrara @NTNU, @bananabull @hvl_no and I looked at the different strategies signers use to introduce, maintain or reintroduce humans, animals and inanimate referents..
We analysed the usual suspects (eg conventional signs, pointing, enactment) but also oft-neglected English mouthing and invisible surrogates (where a confluence of indexing actions enables signers to imagine an entity in the signing space and behave as if it were present)...
In this dataset, choice of strategy most strongly motivated by activation status: new referents expressed with more conventionalised forms (eg manual signs and English mouthing); maintained and reintroduced referents involved fewer and more improvised, context-dependent stuff...

#NSPNsymposium18 Dalal Najib
@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences β‰  @NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol

#CSPC2018 now at the participatory panel on funding for trainees.
Most voted model for support for trainees is direct via scholarship and fellowships (rather than thru institutions or via grants), and 52% prefer higher value to 48% wanting more awards. #CSPC2018

These are some of many questions in @DSP_SPE survey πŸ“Ž
Some great #NRSA programs over at @NIH ⬇️ #CSPC2018 (see stipend amounts in pix)

#CSPC2018 luncheon session w/ @ChiefSciCan starting soon! #Thread here ⬇️

#scipol @sciencepolicy
#CSPC2018 @ChiefSciCan congratulates @MehrdadHariri and his team for the 10th anniversary of @sciencepolicy, and on the success of #SciParl2018 for facilitating great dialogue for #scipol and #cdnsci in Parliament πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
... Also thanks the #scipol community for being there and answering the call when they were needed.

Getting the @ChiefSciCan office together was a challenge like for #ECR just starting up a lab, and like #cdnsci she has build an excellent team

Next panel @sciencepolicy #CSPC2018 on international science and Canada, global agenda for 2030. Gordon McBean starts us off with background on international consortia and meetings on this important topic. Need to bring stakeholders together for a global program
#CSPC2018 @wwatsonwright @OceanFrontier stresses there is only one ocean, where distinct bodies are connected. If we treat them separately and let borders define policy, we limit the impact our policies can have
