The Professor Is In: Career Building Help for Early Career Researchers - Spring 2019

Following the success of her last visit, Dr Karen Kelsky from 'The Professor Is In'  will be in UCD again in May.  Karen is a former tenured professor who now runs The Professor Is In, a consultancy service for the academic career, particularly in the US. She writes the popular blog by the same name, and a bi-weekly column for the Chronicle of Higher Education. Her latest book is called: The Professor is In: The Essential Guide to Turning Your PhD into a Job. In this session, Karen will talk about writing effective grants, and her colleague Kellee Weinhold will speak on interview techniques.  They'll also speak about maintaining direction and motivation in the face of harsh job market conditions and techniques for effective self-advocacy. They are also happy to discuss/ take questions on getting a job in the US.
