This virtual event provides an opportunity to learn about negotiations from experienced faculty and administrators who will offer their perspectives on negotiating for your first faculty position and afterwards as you continue in your faculty career. The presenters have experiences on both sides of the hiring process. Collectively, they (and the webinar series conveners) have held positions at eight colleges and universities, have mentored graduate students and post-docs during the negotiation process, and have negotiated with potential faculty hires. The webinar will include time for questions and discussion. We hope you will join us!
