This workshop, which has occurred annually since 2003, is designed specifically for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are interested in pursuing academic careers. Faculty members and administrators provide guidance and information that helps 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 away and develops a personal action plan.
Note: We also have a set of online resources for folks who are preparing for an academic career in the geosciences. These webpages focus on the job search process, preparing to teach, and moving your research forward. You do not have to attend the workshop to view these pages.
