Future Faculty Development Program Accepting Applications

June 28, 2017

Virginia Tech is now accepting applications for their annual Future Faculty Development Program, an intensive two-day program for doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars traditionally underrepresented in their fields who are interested in entering academic careers in the next year.

In January of 2018, VT plans to bring a cohort of approximately 15 to their main campus in Blacksburg, VA for this all-expense paid workshop that includes interaction with host departments, workshops such as negotiating job offers and adjusting to life as a new faculty member, and plenty of opportunities to network with faculty in research areas of interest to our participants.

Although Virginia Tech faculty typically provide nominations from within the university, interested students from across the country are encouraged to apply directly to the program. Visit the program website for more information, and email futurefaculty@vt.edu to inquire about the application process.
