2013 APA Academic Career Workshops
The APA Science Directorate sponsors Academic Career Workshops in conjunction with regional association meetings throughout the year. An important part of our outreach to students, the Science Directorate hosts these workshops to introduce graduate and postdoctoral students to the nuts and bolts of pursuing an academic career. Discussion topics range from the differences in academic culture across institutions to the pragmatics of the recruiting and hiring process. The workshop's panelists are asked to share their insights while allowing a forum for open discussion.
