Who should apply?
STEM graduate students or post-doctoral scholars who identify as women and are planning to apply for a post-doctoral or faculty position between the fall of 2021 and spring of 2023. Preference will be given to those who are planning to a job search during the 2021/22 academic year. All applicants should be committed to attending each workshop, create draft statements, and collaborating with their peer groups throughout the entire program.
What is the cost?
The cost of the complete workshop series is $250. All applicants will be considered for financial support.
When are the workshops?
Workshops are held via Zoom on Monday evenings from 5:00 – 6:30 pm CT. The first workshop will be on Monday, June 7 and the last workshop will be on Monday, August 16.
Each week we will cover different aspects of the faculty job search. The complete schedule will be posted when it has been finalized. After learning about a major required document (CV, cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and job talk slides), you will draft the document and then exchange them with your peer group. You will find a mutually agreeable time to meet with your peer group and mentor to discuss feedback and questions.
