This panel of postdocs and recently hired faculty will share their experience of being on the academic job market. With advice for successfully moving through the application and hiring process, as well as considerations for setting up a group, they will discuss their take
on some of the basics of this process -- submitting application packets, interviewing, negotiating and making decisions about job offers, and thinking about establishing their research programs.
