Academic career prep:  UD summer institute helps students prepare for academic careers

Six highly motivated University of Delaware postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students from a range of disciplines dedicated a week of their summer, from July 23-27, to participating in the Putting Your Ph.D. to Work: Academic Career Preparation Summer Institute.

The institute was co-sponsored by UD's Office of Graduate and Professional Education, the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning and the UD Career Services Center.

The institute focused on the dual goals of preparing participants for the academic job search and successful transition into the first year of an academic appointment.
