Panel: Applying for Jobs in Academia
Host: Dan Nasrallah

On Friday, March 8th, CSIE|UM hosted a panel discussion on the process of applying to academic positions at institutions from PUIs to R1s.  The panel consisted of 4 post-docs who have recently completed the process of applying to faculty positions: Courtney Roberts (Sanford Lab), Patrick Melvin (Sanford Lab), Meagan Hinze (Narayan Lab), and Nicholas Borotto (Hakansson Lab).

The session began by having the panelists introduce themselves and detailing how many, the location of, and what types of universities they applied to.

The discussion included helpful resources to use when applying from job posting boards to application review workshops.  The panelists also discussed a timeline for the application process, and general tips for how and when to apply.

The audience which consisted of over 60 graduate students and post docs then got to ask questions of the panelists about the process.
