Preparing for your academic job interview chalk talk

The UCSC STEM Postdoc Association (USPA) is organizing the workshop “Preparing for your academic job interview chalk talk“.
Update: *This event WILL be held regardless of the strike situation on campus.*
The chalktalk is an essential part of an academic job interview. At this workshop, you will learn how to prepare your talk and what to expect from the interviewers, and two postdocs will have the chance to practice their talks and receive valuable feedback from experienced faculty.
When: October 24th 9:30am-1pm
Where: Biomed 200
This workshop will be structured in 2-parts:
– Q&A with a faculty panel regarding how to prepare your chalk talk (1 hr)
– Two UCSC postdocs will present practice/mock chalk talks to the faculty panel for feedback similar to a real job interview (2 hrs)
