"You're Hired - Now What? Starting Your New Academic Position Right"
Are you a postdoc or graduate student planning to pursue a faculty career? Then please join us for a talk with one of Duke's favorite professors and mentors, Dr. Mohamed Noor, Professor of Biology and author of the book, You're Hired! Now What? A Guide for New Science Faculty (http://www.amazon.com/Youre-Hired-Guide-Science-Faculty/dp/0878939636). New college faculty are well-versed in the scientific skills they'll need for success in research, including design of projects, preparation of manuscripts and grant proposals, and interactions during peer review. Yet typically they receive no training in organization, management, or even basic college structure. In response to this need, Dr Noor will present his thoughts and advice for a successful faculty career.
