This workshop is designed as a forum for discussion of issues related to aspects of academic/professional careers in the context of academia in the United States.

This section will focus on elements of strong submissions and strategies for success in building an academic research profile. Second, we will discuss searching and applying for postdoctoral fellowships, academic tenure-track positions, as well as non-academic jobs. This section will focus on developing the curriculum vitae; explanation of different types of positions for new Ph.D. scholars in the United States (including where to search for them); typical elements of job applications; and the structure and culture of tenure-track and non-tenured positions in the United States. Participants are encouraged to bring 2 printed copies of their updated curriculum vitae to the workshop.
