2007 Academic Career Workshops

The Science Directorate's Academic Career Workshops introduce graduate and postdoctoral students to the nuts and bolts of pursuing an academic career.

The Science Directorate's Academic Career Workshops have become an integral part of many scientific society meetings. We continue to receive rave review from attendees. The purpose of these workshops is to introduce graduate and postdoctoral students to the nuts and bolts of pursuing an academic career. Topics range from a description of variations in the academic culture across institutions to the pragmatics of the recruiting and hiring process.

See below for the workshops that are scheduled for the spring. If you are interested in additional information about the workshops, such as co-hosting or attending one, please contact Stephanie Cox by phone at 202-336-5918 or email.

Also, please check out our webpage for more information on an academic career.

There is no charge to attend these workshops!
