The Pathways to Professorship (P2P) program is designed to prepare PhD students for the rigors of applying to, and holding, an academic position.
This 12-session program will allow students to gain exposure to the requirements and responsibilities of being a professor.
Throughout the 12-session program students will gain exposure to the requirements and responsibilities of being a professor, and specifically how early-career academics can best manage their time and resources between research, teaching, and administrative duties. Further, students will come away from the program with the skills to develop an effective academic CV, teaching dossier, research statement, and knowledge regarding how to effectively prepare for an academic job interview.
