On September 27-30, 2022, the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Michigan, and Georgia Tech will co-host the 2022 NextProf Nexus future faculty workshop on Berkeley’s campus.
This program aims to diversify the engineering professoriate by bringing together 40+ senior-level Ph.D. students, postdocs, and early career scientists and researchers from across the country for an intensive 3-day workshop about becoming a faculty member.
The 2022 NextProf Nexus future faculty workshop is designed to encourage people in traditionally underrepresented U.S. demographic groups to seek academic careers. It is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents of any ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability, veteran status, socio-economic status, first generation to college status, nation of origin, and/or religion.
Please forward this announcement to candidates and encourage them to apply; you may also nominate them directly here. We would also appreciate it if you could share this announcement with colleagues from other institutions and organizations that share our mission.
We are planning on having the workshop in-person at this time. However, the well-being of our community and guests is our top priority. We will continue to monitor safety guidelines for group gatherings related to COVID-19 and will keep applicants and participants informed of any changes to the format of the workshop. For up-to-date information on the workshop format, please visit our website.
