The latest

APA's Science Directorate is sponsoring a free workshop, held in multiple locations in April 2004, that trains graduate and postdoctoral students on finding a job in academe.

The workshop, "Entering the academic marketplace: advice from the experts," includes topics such as how academic cultures vary across institutions and the pragmatics of the hiring process. Accomplished panelists will share their insights and take student questions.

The workshops are held in conjunction with regional psychology meetings.

  • April 8, 2–4:00 pm, at the Southwestern Psychological Association meeting in San Antonio.

  • April 16, 3:30-5:00 pm, at the Eastern Psychological Association Meeting in Washington, D.C.

  • April 30, at the Midwestern Psychological Association meeting in Chicago. A time had not been set at gradPSYCH press time.

Workshops are also planned for later this year, including at the meetings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society in New Orleans and the Asian American Psychological Association in Honolulu.

To attend this month's or future workshops, send an e-mail to Science Directorate Programs Manager Deborah McCall.
