Understanding Tenure when Applying for Jobs and Negotiating Offers
Tuesday, February 26, 12 – 1:30 pm
Houston Hall, Ben Franklin Room 223
Applying for and being offered a tenure-track position is one of the common goals of the academic job search. But do you know how the actual tenure process works? Should you be thinking about the tenure process when you are applying to different types of institutions? And when you are offered a tenure-track position, what role should the tenure process play in your negotiations? Are you unsure about whether the tenure clock can be stopped, and for what reasons? If you have questions about any aspect of tenure as it relates to your academic job search, then bring your questions to this program.
The speaker for this program will be:
Lynn Hollen Lees, PhD, Professor of History and Vice-Provost for Faculty, University of Pennsylvania

This program is a session of the Faculty Conversations on the Academic Job Search and Academic Life, a series for doctoral students and postdocs which is co-sponsored by Career Services and the Associate Provost for Education. This year, 2013, is the 18th year of this series in which faculty and administrators share valuable information to help you best understand the academic job search process. While some are targeted to people in certain broad discipline areas, all PhD students and postdocs are welcome to attend.
