Junior Faculty Workshop

The Tenure-Track Journey: Striking Balances

About the Workshop

When:       December 15, 2019, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Where:      ICM (main conference venue) in Munich, Germany

This one-day event is designed specifically for junior faculty to be oriented and prepared for the opportunities and challenges ahead. Spend a day with a group of distinguished scholars, mid-career faculty who have gone through the tenure process more recently, as well as peer colleagues in order to get advice and share experiences. In particular, the overarching goals of the workshop are to provide you, junior faculty, with advice on how to plan and manage your tenure process and future career, and to offer a platform for discussion and networking.

The workshop will address various topics and related choices that you have to make on your tenure-track journey, including publication and networking strategies, tenure preparation and career planning, work-life balance, managing co-authorships, etc. The workshop format will be very interactive in order to make the day fruitful and enjoyable for you.
