Virginia Tech is now accepting applications for their annual Future Faculty Development Program, an intensive two-day program for doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars traditionally underrepresented in their fields who are interested in entering academic careers in the next year.
In November of 2018, they plan to bring a cohort of approximately 30 to their main campus in Blacksburg, VA for this all-expense paid workshop that includes interaction with host departments, workshops such as negotiating job offers and adjusting to life as a new faculty member, and plenty of opportunities to network with faculty in research areas of interest to our participants.
You can read more about the program on the attached flyer or at:
The deadline for applications to the November 2018 program is September 20, 2018.
If you are finishing up your dissertation, completing a postdoc, or know of those who are — please consider submitting an application or encouraging others to do so. Emailfuturefaculty@vt.edu with any questions.
