Applying for Positions at Teaching-Focused Institutions
Because we all go to graduate school at PhD granting institutions, we may be less familiar with the working of non-PhD granting institutions and how to successfully apply to jobs at such institutions. While a record of research productivity remains important, other aspects of application packages are equally important – including diversity statements, teaching portfolios, and how research is talked about. Three panelists from institutions at teaching-focused institutions (i.e. small liberal arts and master's granting) will talk about how to convey your interests, skills, and expertise through a well-crafted cover letter, CV, research statement, diversity and inclusion statement, and teaching statement. They'll also describe the recruiting process and what they look for in candidates.
