SIOP’s Fourth Annual Junior Faculty Consortium

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Mark C. Frame
University of Texas at Arlington

On Wednesday, April 1, 2009 SIOP will host the Fourth Annual Junior Faculty Consortium (JFC) at 11:30am at the Sheraton New Orleans. The JFC will again provide a forum for the discussion of topics of mutual interest including conducting research, securing research funding, the do’s and don’ts regarding the tenure process, and advice on publishing and serving as a reviewer. Based on feedback from last year, we will have more time for questions and answers and more time for networking and socializing. Sessions will encourage lively discussion and allow time for informal interaction among participants. The 2009 JFC will also conclude with a forum for discussing relevant issues in more detail and setting goals to ensure participant success in the upcoming year. We will again be having lunch with the attendees of the doctoral consortium. 

The consortium is geared for anyone who is in (or is soon to be in) a pre-tenure faculty position in a psychology department, business school, research, and/or teaching institution. We encourage students who will be entering the academic job market (or an academic position) in the near future to consider attending this worthwhile event. Past participants have remarked that the JFC provided them with specific examples for putting together a tenure packet, getting published, and guidelines and expert experiences of setting up research, publications, and teaching, as one participant said last year, “This answered questions that I didn’t even know I should be asking!”
The 2009 JFC will include editors from a new set of journals, a new set of speakers discussing how they managed the tenure process, and other new additions. Thus, we hope past JFC attendees (from 2006, 2007, and 2008) will benefit from attending the 2009 event.
