The Faculty of Applied Science (APSC) Pathways to Professorship (P2P) program is a new pilot program in the Faculty of Applied Science designed to prepare by its Professional Development (PD) unit for PhD students for the rigors of applying to, and holding, an academic position. Throughout the 12-session program students will gain exposure to the requirements and responsibilities of being a professor, and specifically how early-career academics can best manage their time and resources between research, teaching, and administrative duties. Further, students will come away from the program with the skills to develop an effective academic CV, teaching dossier, research statement, and knowledge regarding how to effectively prepare for an academic job interview. Students interested in the P2P program are invited to apply by August 31, 2018. Please visit the P2P program page for the latest information.
