Career Paths in Higher Education Beyond Faculty

Tuesday, September 22, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT

Webinar

Presented By

Science Alliance

 

For many years, the expected career path for many PhDs was to pursue a faculty position. The nobility of the teaching profession—and the prestige associated with being a professor—made it a very attractive way to make a living. But as faculty positions have become further and fewer between in recent years, the path isn't as clear or guaranteed. The good news? Higher Education offers many diverse employment opportunities for people with STEM degrees!

In this webinar, you'll meet three scientists who chose different career paths—after receiving their PhD in STEM. Lesa Tran Lu pursued teaching undergraduate courses and developed Student-Centered Active Learning at Rice (SCAL@R), Harinder Singh pursued developing training programs for early career scientists and Jennifer Chambers pursued a career in developing Educational courses to empower early career scientists.

During this webinar, you’ll hear from our on the following topics:

  • When did your passion for Higher Education first develop? How—and why—did your career aspirations evolve while you were earning your PhD?
  • What were the personal values important to you in your career that led you down this particular career path?
  • What opportunities can those with PhDs seek in Higher Education, other than faculty positions?
  • What skills are important to build in order to remain relevant in your field, as the workforce in Higher Education becomes more diverse?
