About the Event

Interviewing for a faculty position can be a mysterious and intimidating process. In this seminar, I tell you what to expect and how to prepare for interviews at top academic institutions. Furthermore, I discuss how to structure and prepare your “Job Talk,” the pivotal component of a successful interview. This seminar is targeted at anyone who is considering a career as an academic, whether first year graduate student or a PhD candidate planning to interview this year.
