Academic Job Search Series)

Kimberly S. Chiew, PhD, is a former Duke postdoc who just last year (2017) transitioned to her new position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, University of Denver. At Denver, she is the Director of the DU Motivation, Affect, & Cognition (MAC) Lab, investigating the mechanisms by which motivation and affect influence human cognition and behavior. Kim will discuss how she set up her lab as a brand-new assistant professor and what she has learned since, including:

- How to budget
- How to hire (and hopefully not fire) lab personnel (eg technicians, grad students, and postdocs)
- How to manage your time and responsibilities (publishing, getting funding)
- Who to ask for help and guidance (eg senior faculty, peers, and departmental staff)
