Annual Academic Career Conference for Doctoral Students and Post-doc Fellows

PDF
September 20, 2011, Volume 58, No. 03

The Twenty-Third Annual Academic Career Conference features several panels and workshops during the course of the fall semester on topics of interest to doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows who are looking for academic jobs and planning academic careers. Speakers are faculty members and administrators from Penn and area colleges and universities. In the last 22 years, nearly 90 faculty members and administrators from Penn and area institutions have participated in this series or in its spring semester counterpart, Faculty Conversations on the Academic Job Search and Academic Life.  Penn doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows benefit from faculty, administrators and advanced doctoral students, who share their time and provide advice on preparing for academic careers. Both series are co-sponsored with the Vice Provost for Education.
