As you can see in the flyer, the workshop will include sessions on how to obtain a faculty position (hiring process, preparing documents, interviewing, negotiating) and how to be successful in beginning an academic career (articulating research, prioritizing activities, work-life balance).  You will also have the opportunity to engage with other aspiring academics to expand your network of colleagues and collaborators.
