Applying for faculty positions

In this workshop, we will describe how participants can strategically position themselves as a competitive candidates for faculty positions. First, we will introduce the types of faculty positions in the U.S., the basic elements of the application package and the steps of the hiring process. Then, we will describe what faculty hiring committees are looking for in applications and how participants can present their strengths in their application materials. Participants will use the Academic Career Readiness Assessment (ACRA) Framework, a tool developed with the input from faculty members who have been on hiring committees at diverse types of institutions, with the support of a Burroughs Wellcome Fund grant.

This seminar is part of a series of independent workshops to prepare candidates for faculty positions at different types of institutions. For more information about this program and upcoming programs, visit our webpage.

This seminar will also be offered at Mission Bay on Monday, August 26 . Link to Mission Bay registration.
