You’ve probably heard of the “chalk talk” as a critical component of the academic interview process. However, because these events are generally closed to non-faculty members, few of us postdocs know what a good chalk talk looks like before being asked to give one. Don’t worry though, because on our June 18th meeting, we’re “Deconstructing the Chalk Talk.”Buy Imuran online
We’ve invited Dr. Ilya Finkelstein, a recent veteran of 15(!) academic job interviews, and Dr. Jon Huibregtse, a recent faculty search committee member, to give us the goods on how to construct and deliver a great chalk talk. Whether you plan to go on the job market soon, or are looking for tips on how to present your long-term research plan to a broad audience, we expect this event to be exciting and informative.
Come prepared on Tuesday, June 18th, with questions and be ready to take notes. As always this is a lunch time meeting (Noon -1 PM) and pizza will be served.Buy Evista online
Join us for our May event, a panel discussion on how to land a K99/R00 award from NIH. This award, known as the “Pathway to Independence,” funds the final years of postdoctoral training AND your first years as an independent researcher. Thus, this is one of the most coveted awards offered by NIH, and increasingly becoming a must-have to get a faculty position at America’s top research institutes. In addition, it is one of the few NIH awards open to non-American citizens at the postdoctoral level.
We’ve convened a faculty panel of K99 awardees and reviewers who will answer YOUR questions about how to land this incredible fellowship. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what you need to be competitive for this award, just in time for the June deadline!
Interested in NIH funding opportunities? — the School of Biological Sciences Postdoctoral Association and the College of Natural Sciences will host a panel discussion about the NIH Pathway to Independence award. Questions for the faculty panelists can be submitted in advance to: Anne Tibbetts at email@example.com
