Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Information Session

Tuesday, May 1, 2018
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Dr. Hugh Crumley & panel of current PFF Fellows
Perkins 217

Learn more about the The Preparing Future Faculty program at Duke. Applications are being accepted soon for next year. PFF provides a yearlong experience for PhD students and postdocs to prepare them for the multiple roles they may be asked to assume as future faculty members in a variety of academic institutions. PFF fellows learn about the broad range of faculty roles and responsibilities by visiting nearby cluster campuses, working closely with a mentor at one of six partner institutions, and attending colloquia at Duke on critical issues in academia. Typically about 25 to 30 PFF fellows are selected annually, including up to five postdoctoral fellows.The program follows the academic calendar, and we expect those selected as fellows to participate fully during the entire academic year. Applications for AY 18-19 will be due June 1, 2018.
