IRW Professional Development Workshop - Demystifying Academia: Preparing for the Academic Job Market. REGISTER NOW!


Wednesday, September 30, 2015, 10:30am - 12:45pm

Learn the about the academic job market from a panel drawn from the humanities, social sciences and sciences. We will take a look at how the systemic dismantling of tenure and the growth of adjunct and contingent labor are changing what the market is and how to approach it. Discussion will be aimed not only at current academic job seekers but all graduate students who want to understand the realities of the academic market. We especially welcome first and second year graduate students who want to gain early knowledge of professionalizing mandates. Topics covered will include CVs, cover letters, research statements, teaching portfolios, managing the stress of multi-year searches, transitioning from post-doc to faculty positions, and interview tips.



This workshop is sponsored by the Institute for Research on Women, the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, and the Office for the Promotion of Women in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics.
