Considering a Career in Academia? Workshop for all disciplines

Now in its third year, the Thriving in an Academic Career workshop draws participants from top universities in Maryland, Washington, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, and more. This two-day event (May 17-18) will feature interactive workshops to help you navigate the opportunities and challenges of an academic career in any discipline. Renowned experts in specialty fields will guide you through the elements of an academic career so you can develop the strategies to not only succeed but thrive.

Pre- and postdoctoral students, junior faculty, and students contemplating an academic careerĀ are encouraged to attend. You can expect to learn keys to early success in academia, creating and managing your brand, persuasive communication, NIH grant submission and review process, finding a faculty position, writing and publishing best practices, grant writing, finding a mentor, and how leaders handle difficult questions.

Cost to attend is $100 for students and $300 for general public and faculty.
