Preparing for Faculty Careers
The Preparing for a Faculty Career certificate is a 6-week series designed to give advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars insight into the academic job search process, the nature of faculty positions at different sorts of institutions, and how to successfully navigate the transition into a faculty career. The series will be conducted in an interactive fashion, which will give participants the opportunity to draft and get feedback on their application materials. Participants will practice interviewing skills, understand what makes a job talk successful, learn how to negotiate a job offer, and anticipate their transitions into their desired careers.
