Hope your summers are off to a good start! Below, you will find information about the New England Future Faculty Workshop. Applications close on June 12th, 2023. If you are interested in applying, please visit the link here.
The New England Future Faculty Workshop (NEFFW) is a two-day event dedicated to preparing PhD students and postdoctoral researchers for faculty careers in academia. This event will be hosted virtually by Northeastern University (Boston, MA) on August 2nd and 3rd, 2023, and we invite graduate students and postdoctoral researchers as participants from across the country. A flier with more information is attached.
The goals of the NEFFW are to:
(1) increase representation of scholars from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds
(2) provide professional development opportunities for cultivating future faculty applicants
(3) offer personalized feedback on application materials
(4) develop support networks for future mentorship
Underrepresented populations in Faculty positions in Academia include women, racial and ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, first-generation students, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Last year, we hosted 182 participants from over 74 institutions across the globe.
This year we aim at cultivating the relationships we created in the past years while expanding our reach to students and researchers with diverse identities coming from institutions not only in the New England area but also in the whole country and the world..
As a part of the NEFFW event, participants will have access to focused panel sessions, review of their application materials (CV, cover letter, research, teaching, and diversity statements), personalized feedback, affinity group discussions, and the opportunity to meet fellow graduate students and postdoctorates across a variety of institutions from different disciplines. Topics discussed will include institutional fit, developing research, teaching, and diversity statements, interviewing skills, negotiation, mentoring, time management, and planning for their first year as faculty.
You can apply to register for the event here. Information about the workshop can also be found in the attached flier. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
