Want to know more about different types of careers in academia, including faculty, staff, teaching, and research positions?
In this whiteboard talk, we will explore the different types of faculty and non-faculty career-track positions available to life science PhD-level scientists in academic institutions, including research-intensive (R1) institutions, primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs), liberal arts colleges, master's granting universities, and community colleges. Some examples of these types of careers include positions with research, teaching, and/or administrative responsibilities. We will feature the stories of several UCSF faculty and staff, and illustrate how they navigated their career trajectory in a variety of different academic positions. This talk was previously created for the 2017-2018 MIND Program, and is now being offered to the wider graduate student and postdoctoral scholar community at UCSF.
By the end of the session, you will be able to:
- Describe different types of positions for PhD-level scientists within an academic institution
- Identify the different types of higher education institutions in the US
- Differentiate among the roles and responsibilities of different types of academic positions
- Recognize the various career trajectories available within academia
