Academic Packways: Gearing up for Faculty

Academic Packways: Gearing up for Faculty is an ideal professional development opportunity for late-stage graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who are interested in pursuing careers in academia. Organized by NC State’s Graduate School, the Academic Packways program is engineered to inform students and postdocs about responsibilities and roles of early-career faculty and prepare them for the competitive academic job market. For more information regarding Academic Packways, contact Vanessa Doriott Anderson.
