Finding a permanent academic position is notoriously difficult and the process of getting one is generally shrouded in mystery. Providing reliable and independent resources for early career materials scientists is one of the goals of the MRS Early Career Professionals Subcommittee. Last year, our Subcommittee hosted webinars examining the application process from the perspective of search committees. However, search committees are often only familiar with their own institutional application processes.
In this new series, we will hear the perspective of recently appointed (last two years) early career faculty members, who will provide a different perspective on the process. In this final webinar of the series, we will briefly outline the post offer process, how to navigate negotiating an offer, and what is involved in starting your new position. We will then talk to our panel about their experiences negotiating and starting in their new labs. After our initial discussion, the floor will open for audience Q&A.
