Fall New Faculty Workshop Part 2: Chalk Talk and Interview Process

We will then focus on the chalk talk, a common feature of interviews at research-intensive universities. A recently hired faculty member will walk us through her chalk talk, focusing on its design & implementation. This session is geared towards those currently on the job market or those interested in obtaining a faculty position in the near future.
How to Get a Faculty Job and Thrive In It: An Early Career Scientist and New Faculty Workshop
Thursday, May 26, 2022
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.
