This session is part of the Future Faculty (2022) series, Level 1, Planning Your Search.
In this panel, you can learn from the experiences of postdoc and faculty panelists from different disciplines who have recently navigated their own career transitions successfully. Since much has changed in the past two years, come and learn from newly minted PhDs and what their job search experiences look like.
The panelists are affiliated with various higher education institutions and will share their day-to-day professional life as postdocs and faculty members. This panel discussion will be especially helpful for PhD students and Postdocs entering the faculty job market to learn more about how expectations, campus culture, and application process may differ from institution to institution. With the information presented, you can better identify the type of institutions and faculty careers most ideal for you and tailor your materials accordingly. Participants have the opportunity to submit questions before and directly engage with panelists during the discussion.
