The 9th Annual SIOP Junior Faculty Consortium
On May 14, 2014 between 7:30 am and 3:30 pm, SIOP will host the Ninth Annual SIOP Junior Faculty Consortium (JFC). The JFC is designed to assist the untenured faculty members of SIOP to develop and hone the skills needed to meet their career objectives. It has also served as a “realistic job preview” for participants considering entering academics. Again this year the JFC will provide insights from journal editors and academics who have recently achieved tenure, as well as hosting concurrent sessions on research funding and teaching. As always, the JFC will include an impressive lineup of speakers in these areas. New this year are multiple networking sessions where JFC participants will have the opportunity to meet and make connections with other JFC attendees and speakers. The JFC changes from year to year, and as a result past participants have found value in attending multiple SIOP JFCs.
Last year’s participants remarked that that they appreciated the “ability to ask questions to people who succeeded in the field” and the “JFC gave me a great idea of what areas to prepare for as junior faculty member.” After the JFC one participant reported “I feel energized with the tools I need to be a better researcher and teacher.”
Whether you would be a first-time JFC participant or one of our JFC regulars, please join us for an informative, supportive, and enlightening event. Please register using the online SIOP conference registration process. There is an $85.00 charge to help defray costs for materials, food and beverages. Sign up early because seating is limited. For more information, please contact Mike Sliter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
