Career Paths in Academia - Faculty Route
Monday, March 22, 2021, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
According to an article in Higher Ed - “the odds of any given Ph.D. getting a tenure-track job lie between 10 and 25 percent”. The low odds make getting a tenure-track position extremely competitive. A tenure-track faculty wears various hats and plays the role of being a fundraiser, a manager, a scientific innovator, a teacher, a mentor, a leader, a sponsor etc. The young faculty are expected to have a holistic and well-rounded approach to research and leadership as they drive scientific innovation as well as initiate systemic changes.
During this webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of Scientists on the following topics:
- Strategies to building our application package
- What skills are key as a faculty beyond being a good bench researcher?
- How to be an effective mentor and role model to foster an innovative intellectual pool of young scientists?
Join us at this webinar to learn how these young faculty positioned themselves to successfully become a tenure-track faculty and how they have grown into the role and learned some key skills as they have transitioned into creating a culture that promotes innovation and inclusion.
The event will be followed by a virtual networking opportunity at 6:30 PM.
