The STEM Faculty Launch is a premier workshop for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers seeking tenure-track positions in the STEM fields. This two-day workshop covers best practices for pursuing, applying for, and establishing faculty careers. This annual workshop is open to candidates nationwide. Women and traditionally underrepresented minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply. Participants attend a variety of interactive sessions, receive career advice and feedback from expert faculty, and gain exposure to project-based learning, a hallmark of WPI education. All invited participants receive funding to cover travel expenses to and from WPI as well as lodging and meals during the workshop. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will earn a certificate of completion. TO APPLY: Applications for the 2017 STEM Faculty Launch program are due August 11, 2017.
