Two workshops are being offered for PhD students and postdocs interested in becoming faculty members in the future:
1. Starting a Research Program: Tips for a Successful First Year
Time: Thursday, April 12, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: 407 Illini Union
Preparing to start your independent research program comes with a lot of questions. What can you do to make this transition successfully? A panel of faculty will share their advice about what to do in your first year, including the first steps as you start your lab, working with students and staff, and managing equipment purchases and lab setup. Registration.
2. The Academy for Future Science Faculty for Advanced PhD Students
With a grant from NIH, the Academy for Future Science Faculty uses coaching techniques to supplement what PhD students get from their research mentors and graduate programs. Students participate in annual summer conferences and stay connected with student colleagues and their Academic Career Coaches throughout the year.
The Academy currently seeks applications from students likely to complete their PhD within the next 12-18 months and who have the long-term goal of becoming a faculty member. All expenses will be paid. Sixty students will be randomly selected to participate from those who apply. Selection will not be based on grades, GRE scores, publications or letters of recommendation. We encourage applications that will help us create a diverse group of participants in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Be a part of the first group of advanced PhD students to join the Academy! Deadline for application is Monday, April 23.
