Planning to pursue a career in academia? Or wondering what such a career might entail in different fields and at different kinds of institutions? This conference is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who are actively pursuing faculty jobs as well as those who are exploring academia as one possible career path. Concurrent sessions include both hands-on workshops and panels of faculty members from a range of colleges and universities sharing their insights about pursuing and succeeding in academic careers. The conference will also feature informal networking opportunities and information about campus offices that provide support for academic job-seekers, including CRLT, Rackham, the Career Center, and the International Center.

Snacks will be available throughout the afternoon. Registration is required.
