Preparing for an Academic Career in the Geosciences: Previous Workshops

Each summer, we offer a multi-day workshop, designed specifically for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are interested in pursuing academic careers. Faculty members and administrators provide guidance and information, helping participants to be stronger candidates for academic positions and to succeed in academic jobs. Session topics focus on becoming both a successful teacher and researcher. Each participant takes home ideas to improve teaching right now and develops a personal action plan.
