21. Avenues of Access for Recent PhDs

Thursday, 3 January, 12:00 noon–1:15 p.m., Fairfax B, Sheraton

A special session

Presiding: Belinda Wheeler, Paine Coll.

Speakers: Joseph Donica, Wiley Coll.; Anca Luca Holden, Mount Holyoke Coll.; Thomas Lawrence Long, Univ. of Connecticut, Storrs; M. Stephanie Murray, Carnegie Mellon Univ.; Belinda Wheeler

Session Description:

The avenues of access for recent PhDs are shrinking. With the academy becoming "far less accessible for aspiring college professors," we need to "reverse this trend" and "advance the discussion of alternative career paths for PhDs" (Bérubé). This roundtable opens up a discussion of how upcoming or recent PhDs can successfully navigate the challenging job market.

  • The Profession – General
