2019 Academic Career Workshop will be held May 16-19, 2019 in Houston, TX. The goal of the workshop is to mentor underrepresented assistant- and associate-level faculty, senior doctoral students, and postdocs about the academic career ladder.
The workshop will include panels of diverse senior faculty speaking on the tenure and promotion processes, launching a research program, effective networking, effective teaching and a detailed session on proposal writing. Sessions also address the benefits and process of serving on national scale committees and promotion to full professor. In addition, the workshop will include a discussion about alternative career paths.
The Academic Career Workshop is funded by an NSF grant and organized in collaboration with AccessComputing and CAHSI.
Our target audience includes: underrepresented ethnic minorities and people with disabilities at the levels of assistant professor, associate professor, post-doc, and senior level doctoral students in computing. Workshop participants are supported by the NSF grant.
