Three distinguished faculty will discuss predoctoral research positions, and how these positions can be a launchpad for a research career in academia, the public sector, or industry. They will discuss the path from a predoc position to a PhD program, and on to a faculty position, sharing their own experiences as faculty members and offering tips and best practices for a strong application and preparing for the position.

This presentation is open to students of all years. Current job opportunities are most relevant to recent graduates and those graduating by June 2021. Anyone interested in learning more about research opportunities following graduation is encouraged to attend. This is a unique opportunity to ask questions and learn directly from these scholars about an emerging role in the quantitative social sciences. Please join!
