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

Postdoc Night Out

DCPDA career development workshop

Please join us for a special DCPDA career development workshop on how to promote your research online on Tuesday, March 03 from 12-1:30 PM in Vail 513.

Our speaker will be Jaclyn Selby, a postdoctoral fellow at the Tuck School of Business, affiliated with the Center for Digital Strategies. Her pre-PhD life experience includes experience in government contracting, marketing strategy, and geopolitical consulting.

Workshop description:
Today, part of successfully communicating our work as academics means having an online presence. How can social media and web services help postdocs and other early-stage scholars to establish themselves as public intellectuals? How does one negotiate a fit between their own research and the many different types of platforms available? This workshop demonstrates both how and why a strong presence on the Internet – including a personal domain or blog  – can be used to showcase your work, or portfolio, or academic research to potential collaborators, employers, and generally the outside world. A range of platforms will be presented in brief, including WordPress (for personal sites), Pinterest (for research and co-author collaborations), LinkedIn (for conference networking), Twitter (for academic purposes), SSRN (for research promotion), and Quora (for research and networking).

Lunch will be served.
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by March 01 to Katja.Koeppen[at]Dartmouth.edu.

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
