New England Future Faculty Workshop
We invite graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in STEM fields to apply for the New England Future Faculty Workshop held on the Northeastern University campus on July 10, 2018. This full-day conference is designed for participants from groups the NSF has identified as being underrepresented in STEM fields - specifically women, persons with disabilities, and those from three racial and ethnic groups—blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians or Alaska Natives. The conference includes sessions discussing the following topics:
• Finding your institutional fit
• Appropriate CV structure and content
• Crafting a compelling research statement
• Interviewing skills
• Developing time management skills
• Identifying an action plan for first year faculty
• Negotiating a job offer
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to network with current and future STEM faculty.
