Humanities and Social Sciences Postdoc Information Session

Thursday, November 5, 2015
11:00 am to 12:30 pm


Join the discussion about postdocs for the Humanities and Social Sciences.  What opportunities exist?  How do I find opportunities?  What value does a postdoc experience hold for me?  If you are interested in speaking with current and former postdocs, join us for a lively meet-up with three dynamic Ph.D.s who will share their postdoc experiences.

  • Anna Egalite, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Educational Leadership, Policy, and Human Development in the College of Education at North Carolina State University, holds a Ph.D. in Education Policy from the University of Arkansas and an M.Ed. from the University of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education.

  • Daniel Ahlquist, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Lecturing Fellow, Thompson Writing Program, Duke University, is an environmental sociologist/political ecologist who teaches courses designed to help undergraduate students develop as scholarly writers and analytical thinkers through critical engagement with topics such as food systems, environmental justice, and human-nature relations.
