What is Faculty Corner?
Do you ever wonder what the joys and challenges are of being a professor? How best to prepare for a tenure track job? How to achieve work-life balance? What the best practices are in running a lab? If you wish to learn the answers to these questions from diverse faculty and want to meet and network with scientists outside of your home departments, then wait no more!
Our monthly “Faculty Corner” is a series of robust live interviews and professional development talks from our expert UM faculty on issues surrounding academic job preparation, interview and negotiation, lab/time/project/personnel management, funding, publication, and, importantly, work-life balance.
