The job talk for a faculty position at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI)

Note: Registration required (Register through Eventbrite)

In this seminar, we will discuss ways that candidates can strategically tailor their faculty job talk, which is a requirement for all faculty candidates applying to positions involving a research component, from liberal arts colleges to Research 1 (R1) institutions.  The faculty job talk for life scientists is different from a lab meeting presentation, a conference presentation, or a departmental seminar.   We’ll consider the structure of this type of talk, how candidates can present their science for this type of audience, and how to prepare for this talk.  

Learning outcomes:

After completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the structure and purpose of a faculty job talk
  • Describe the differences between a faculty job talk and a lab meeting presentation, conference presentation, or department seminar
  • Describe the different elements of a successful faculty job talks
