Seminar: The job talk for a faculty position

In this seminar, we will discuss ways that candidates can strategically tailor their faculty job talk, which is a requirement for all faculty candidates applying to positions involving a research component, from liberal arts colleges to Research 1 (R1) institutions. The faculty job talk for life scientists is different from a lab meeting presentation, a conference presentation, or a departmental seminar. We’ll consider the structure of this type of talk, how candidates can present their science for this type of audience, and how to prepare for this talk.


Dates and Times:

Thursday, October 11, 2018 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Mission Bay: Genentech Hall Gen N-114
