Event Overlay

The BRN Research Workshop Series provides various opportunities for participants to improve their knowledge of existing research grants and equip them with relevant information and tools to navigate their academic careers and industry.

Are you interested in continuing your research and/or teaching career in academia? In this session we’ll discuss:

  • Job search strategies for tenure track, teaching stream, and contract-limited faculty positions, as well as postdoctoral and research associate positions,
  • Best practices for application materials (cover letters, CVs, research statements, teaching dossiers, diversity statements, etc.), and
  • What role an online presence might play in your application process

This workshop is open to Black and Indigenous graduate students, postdoctoral students, and recent alumni. 

This workshop will take place virtually.
