Transitioning to Academia: Inside Academic Hiring Processes

February 28, 2024 at 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM

Audience:Current Students

Thinking about applying to academic jobs, but wondering how academic hiring processes work? Join us for a session with Norah Vollmer from Carleton’s Faculty Affairs (Office of the Deputy Provost) to learn about the processes behind hiring new faculty. We’ll talk about the architecture of academic job ads, the institutional processes behind interviewing and selecting candidates, and best practices for hiring committees.

Please note: All graduate students are welcome. If you are a TA, this session counts toward voluntary paid training hours, provided that you are working as a TA in the term when the training takes place.
