Our weekly seminar series featuring internal and external speakers in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology. This seminar will be in-person and livestreaming on Zoom (link this page).

Abstract
Many Ph.D. students and postdocs at Research-1 (R1) universities are interested in exploring academic careers at non-academic universities, including liberal arts colleges and master's-granting universities. However, resources on how to prepare to be competitive in applications for job openings may be scarce at R1 universities because advising faculty are most familiar with preparation for applying for R1 jobs. I am a professor of biological sciences at a public, master's-granting institution where I have served on numerous tenure-track faculty search committees over the past 18 years. In this presentation, I give attendees practical advice on how to prepare to apply for tenure-track jobs at non-R1 universities, including important experience they should have, how to write the cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and diversity statement, and advice for phone and on-campus interviews. Though the talk is geared toward graduate students and postdocs, faculty are welcome to attend so that they can better advise students interested in non-R1 jobs.
