Dr. Mark O'Reilly at The University of Texas at Austin and Dr. Laura Lee McIntyre at Syracuse University will speak about the academic job search process from the perspectives of an established researcher that has chaired multiple faculty search committees and a rising academic researcher who successfully navigated her entry into academia.

DescriptionIn this session, Dr. Mark O'Reilly and Dr. Laura Lee McIntyre will provide their perspectives on effective application and interviewing strategies, including strategies for identifying open appointments, developing application materials, preparing for interviews, and what to expect during interviews. An interactive Q&A session will follow Drs. O'Reilly and McIntyre's remarks.
