A faculty development seminar, co-sponsored by the Program for Career Development, College of Arts & Science and the Office of the Provost, will be held on January 8, 2016. The seminar is open to faculty from across the university.
Mohamed Noor, Earl D. McLean Professor and Chair of Biology at Duke University will be giving a presentation on “Productive Professor or Foibling Faculty? Starting Your New Academic Position Right.” Dr. Noor is the author of You're Hired! Now What? A Guide for New Science Faculty. The presentation will address the skills needed by new faculty to get their labs up and running smoothly. New college faculty are well-versed in the scientific skills they'll need for success in research – designing projects, preparing manuscripts, writing grant proposals, and navigating peer review – but they typically 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 starting a successful faculty career.The information will be useful to both faculty already on the tenure track and postdocs and planning academic careers.
