Every year, graduating doctoral students and postdocs carefully prepare for “life after graduate school.” For some, this means beginning the search for academic faculty positions in a hypercompetitive academic job market—an often intense and stressful process. To prepare you for success, this panel of experts will provide advice and tips in the hope of making your job search a little easier. Panelists will offer advice on tackling the job market, composing application materials (e.g., teaching statements, research statements, etc.), and preparing for on-campus interviews (e.g., job talks, individual interviews, etc.). Join us so that you are better prepared to apply for faculty positions when the academic job market is hot. When is that, you ask? You will have to join us to find out!
