NextProf Nexus is a multi-day program that is part of a nationwide effort to strengthen and diversify the next generation of academic leaders in engineering. This preeminent event, sponsored by the colleges of engineering at Michigan, UC Berkeley and Georgia Tech, is designed to give participants the opportunity to explore and prepare for a faculty position in academia.
The 2021 session of the workshop will take place October 4-7 in Ann Arbor, hosted by Michigan Engineering.
Join a select cohort of diverse engineering Ph.D. students, recent doctoral graduates and top faculty and deans from around the country.
We strongly encourage women and traditionally underrepresented groups at U.S. institutions who are senior-level Ph.D. candidates, postdoctoral researchers or early-career scientists and researchers in the field of engineering to apply.
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
