“Productive Professor or Foibling Faculty? Starting Your New Academic Position Right” with Dr Mohamed Noor

Thursday, December 3, 2015
9:30 am to 11:00 am

Are you a postdoc or graduate student planning to pursue a faculty career in science? Then please join us for a talk with one of Duke’s favorite professors and mentors, Dr. Mohamed Noor, Earl D. McLean Professor and Chair of Biology, and author of the book You’re Hired! Now What? A Guide for New Science Faculty. 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. Dr Noor will be joined by fellow Duke faculty members for an informal discussion of the issues faced by new faculty. 

This event is part of the 2015-16 Academic Job Search Series, co-sponsored by The Graduate School's Professional Development Series, the Duke Career Center, and the Office of Postdoctoral Services.
