SIOP’s 5th Annual Junior Faculty Consortium

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

On Wednesday, April 7, 2010 SIOP will host the Fifth Annual Junior Faculty Consortium (JFC) at 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Atlanta. 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. We will have ample time for questions and answers as well as for networking and socializing. Sessions will encourage lively discussion and allow time for informal interaction among participants.

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 2010 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, 2008, and 2009) will benefit from attending the 2010 event.

Please register using the online SIOP conference registration process: www.siop.org/Registration/. There is a $75.00 charge to help defray costs for lunch, snacks, and beverages. Seating will be limited, so please register early. For more information, contact Mark Frame at Dr.Mark.Frame@gmail.com.
