Preparing the next generation of scientific and technological leaders.

For the past five years the University of Michigan has hosted the NextProf workshops. These workshops have established a reputation as preeminent events in a revitalized nationwide effort to strengthen and diversify the next generation of academic leaders in engineering. In order to reach a larger audience, University of Michigan is partnering with the University of California, Berkeley to offer NextProf Nexus 2018: A Premiere Future Faculty Development Workshop.

The NextProf Nexus experience gives participants a candid view of academic life along with the tools and network to support their success.

Each workshop brings together a select cohort of diverse engineering PhD students, recent doctoral graduates and top faculty and deans from around the U.S. for three days of learning and interacting with peers and mentors. Speakers include distinguished deans, administrators, faculty and subject-matter experts from across the country. All costs are covered for accepted applicants. 

Attendees will leave NextProf Nexus with a clear understanding of the academic job market and how to navigate the rigors of first faculty positions.
  • Meet mentors and future collaborators
  • Attend panel discussions with successful faculty
  • Learn about the faculty search process
  • Prepare for the academic job market
  • Plan for the rigors of first faculty positions
