Faculty Job Search Series (FJSS)

The Faculty Job Search Series (FJSS) supports graduate students and postdocs who are preparing for the faculty job market.  The program brings together expertise from around the Institute, including faculty, CAPD, the Writing and Communication Center, the Teaching and Learning Lab, the OGE, and the Engineering Communication Labs. 

Build a strong application informed by experts across the Institute via overviews, faculty panels, deep dives, and hands-on-workshops aligned with the timeline of the faculty job search.

For more on the faculty job search, visit the CAPD Academia and Education career interest page for additional resources.
