Abstract: The search for a university-based job after earning a doctorate is a difficult, stressful, and time-consuming experience. However, the process does not have to be a mystery. Panelists will discuss their first-hand experiences finding university-based tenure-track academic and postdoctoral clinical positions in fields related to Applied Behavior Analysis. Topics will include: finding and applying for jobs, surviving the interview process, and making the most of the early years in your new position. Panelists will describe considerations one should make while choosing which jobs to apply for and how to balance personal life demands with work commitments. Navigating the tenure process will also be discussed.
