Faculty Mentor-in-Residence Event

Ever wonder what the faculty interview is like? What kind of questions does the search committee ask? How does one prepare? How should one respond to that random question that no one prepares for?

The next Faculty Mentor-in-Residence event will help answer some of these questions. Our very own Adina Luican-Mayer, Alexei Abrikosov Fellow in NST, has just successfully gone through an intense and lengthy faculty search process. She will be on hand for a brown-bag session on Friday to share her experiences.

Please bring your lunch and join us for networking and some good take-aways to plan your interview strategy!

Date: Friday, September 25th

Time: Noon

Location: Building 201, Rooms 190A/B (orientation rooms)
