Application Deadline: Extended to May 15, 2019

The OMT Division is pleased to announce the 2019 OMT Junior Faculty Consortium. If you have started a faculty position in the last few years, this workshop is for you!

The workshop provides an intimate forum for interacting with senior colleagues and peers to enable you to prosper in your academic career. The workshop focuses on:

1) developing your research for publication with the help of seasoned scholars in your area

2) exploring strategies for impact and growth as a scholar and teacher

3) navigating the early years for a successful faculty career in diverse institutional settings

You will have the opportunity to interact with an exciting team of faculty mentors and peers, gain developmental feedback on your research, hear advice from relevant panels, participate in roundtable discussions and informal conversations, and build potentially lifelong networks.

This year’s faculty mentors offer diverse scholarly and geographic perspectives. Among them they have editorial boards/editors experience at leading journals, and won research and teaching awards.
