PhD Academic Career Mentoring Panel Series

The Viterbi School of Engineering initiated an Academic Career Mentoring Panel Series to encourage Ph.D. students and postdocs to pursue a rewarding career in academia and research. Distinguished faculty will discuss their academic paths and offer strategic advice and answer your questions. Engineering Ph.D. students and postdocs from all areas and departments are strongly encouraged to attend.

Seminar Abstract: A panel of graduating PhD students and a postdoc, will discuss “Preparing For, and Landing a Faculty Position.” Moderated by Vice Dean Timothy Pinkston, the panelists will discuss key strategies for the early, middle, and latter stages of your PhD and postdoc that will help you prepare for landing a faculty position.
