Careers in Academia
December 7 to December 10, 2009
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Brian Conrey
This workshop This workshop will focus on preparing each applicant to start and maintain a successful career as a mathematician in a college or university.
The primary goals of the workshop are to develop an understanding of the hiring process from the institutions' point of view, to refine the application packet (cover letters, C.V., research and teaching statements), to learn what to expect during the interview process (including the job talk), and to prepare for negotiating salary and start-up packages. Additional time will be spent on aspects of the pre-tenure years including the development of a research program, writing grant proposals, and becoming a research mentor for students.
The four-day workshop will consist of one-on-one work with experienced mentors, small group discussions, writing and critique of written materials, plenary sessions, and time for individual work.
