Mentoring and professional development are vital components of a cyberinfrastructure (CI) professional’s career. CI professionals are those who develop, deploy, manage, and support effective use of cyberinfrastructure. The term encompasses research software engineers, programmers, IT professionals, data scientists, system administrators, and more.
Through PTI’s mentoring and professional development programs, team members are given opportunities for leadership training activities, technical training, and even advanced degrees at a reduced tuition rate. Staff can mentor students and can lecture in relevant courses in an effort to attract, recruit, and retain the next generation of CI professionals.
PTI’s CI Professional Development Series is one facet of our workforce development programs.
