DCPDA Workshop: Negotiating a Faculty Position

Are you curious how others have negotiated their positions?

Then you might be interested in the upcoming Dartmouth College Postdoctoral Association (DCPDA) workshop on negotiations.

Our panelists are:
Prof. Amy Gladfelter (Biological Science)
Prof. Margaret Ackerman (Thayer School of Engineering)
Prof. Robert Hawley  (Earth Sciences)

They hopefully can answer your questions and give you advice on how to prepare, what to expect, and what you should (or should not) do in upcoming negotiations.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 29th from 12-1:00 pm in Life Science 352.

Lunch will be provided.

Please RSVP by Monday April 20th to aaron.atkinson[at]dartmouth.edu

We look forward to seeing you there,

Post doc night out!






Fellow Postdocs,

You deserve a night out!

Come and enjoy delicious tapas and sangria at Candelas on Thursday, March 26th at 7 PM.

Let me know if you’d like to tell us about your work in a casual 5 minute talk (no slides–you could use tapas as props, though!)


Katie Price

President, DCPDA
