On October 4-7, 2021, the University of Michigan, the University of California – Berkeley, and Georgia Tech will co-host the 2021 NextProf Nexus Future Faculty Workshop on the University of Michigan’s campus.
This program aims to diversify the engineering professoriate by bringing together 40+ senior-level Ph.D. students, postdocs, and early career scientists and researchers from across the country for an intensive 3-day workshop about becoming a faculty member.
The 2021 NextProf Nexus Future Faculty Workshop is designed to encourage people in traditionally underrepresented U.S. demographic groups to seek academic careers. It is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents of any ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability, veteran status, socio-economic status, first generation to college status, nation of origin, and/or religion.
The plan is to have the workshop in-person at this time. However, the wellbeing of our community and guests is our top priority. We will continue to monitor safety guidelines for group gatherings related to COVID-19 and will keep applicants and participants informed of any changes to the format of the workshop.
