Demonstration: Giving a chalk talk for a faculty position

Note: Registration Required (Register through Eventbrite)

Planning to give a chalk talk as part of your interview for a faculty position in the future? Not sure what to expect from the audience in a chalk talk or how to prepare for this type of talk?

In this program, Dr. Seemay Chou will provide participants with a brief overview of the chalk talk structure. She will then demonstrate her chalk talk as an example in front of several current UCSF faculty as well as Dr. Katherine Thompson-Peer, a current UCSF postdoc that will be starting a faculty position in 2019, to simulate the types of questions asked during a chalk talk. The demonstration will be followed by short Q&A with Dr. Chou & Dr. Thompson-Peer. Before coming to this program, we highly recommend that you watch Michael Rape’s 2017 seminar “The chalk talk for a faculty position."

If you are planning to apply for a faculty position, don’t miss this program, as it will be offered only once this year!
