New Faculty Workshop
How to Get a Faculty Job and Thrive In It: An Early Career Scientist and New Faculty Workshop
Thursday, May 26, 2022, from 1:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m. EST
Hosted by the GSA Education Committee, this event is designed to help postdocs and new faculty (those within their first five years of appointment) network, learn from those just a bit ahead in their careers, and find support. This workshop will feature two panel discussions: one focused on securing a faculty job (i.e., crafting application materials, navigating the interview process, negotiating job offers) and one focused on surviving the first few years of a new faculty position (i.e., managing budgets, teaching that first course, and being an effective mentor). Panelists will include faculty from both research-intensive institutions and PUIs. Time will also be set aside for informal networking with panelists and Education Committee members. Advance registration is required.

The past year and a half has brought significant challenges for science educators. Join GSA’s Education Committee to discuss what worked (and what didn’t) in the classroom, research lab, and for balancing work/life. Moderated breakout rooms will give participants a chance to share their experiences and hear from others.
