Candidates who would like to get feedback on their materials are encouraged to attend this workshop with their CV and Cover Letter at an advanced stage of development. Participants will be paired together and will use a rubric based on the Academic Career Readiness Assessment (ACRA) Framework to give and receive feedback on their materials. Trainees have reported that this peer-review process is an effective format. The workshop facilitator will also provide some feedback and answer questions. Participants should send copies of a CV, Cover Letter, and a job description for which these materials have been tailored. This workshop is for application materials to R1 institutions, RT institutions (research/teaching: primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs), liberal arts colleges, and master's granting universities), and teaching-only institution applications.
The ACRA Framework was developed using interviews from faculty members at diverse types of institutions, with the support of a Burroughs Wellcome Fund grant.
By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
Develop application materials to represent themselves adequately for faculty positions
Identify areas of improvement for their own application materials
Analyze and evaluate other candidates' application materials
Develop a strategy for addressing the areas of concerns in their materials
