Anthropology doctoral student Alicia Odewale has been selected to join the North Carolina State Building Future Faculty Program this spring, March 18-21. The program is a two-day workshop for doctoral students and post-doctoral scholars who are interested in pursuing careers in academics.
During the workshop, participants attend sessions to learn about life as a faculty member at a research university, new faculty expectations and resources that are available for research and teaching. Participants are matched with an academic department that closely aligns with their interests. This gives them the opportunity to meet with faculty to learn about career opportunities, research programs and meet one-on-one with experienced faculty. Odewale will also present a 15-minute research lecture and mini-job talk as part of the program. She is expected to complete her doctorate in May 2016.
