Exploring Faculty Careers: Using Data in Your Career Planning - STEM Disciplines

Monday, March 22, 2021 - 11:00am to Tuesday, March 23, 2021 - 11:55am

What does the career landscape look like for academic research careers in your discipline? Predicting the future is impossible, of course, but data collected by Academic Analytics help to answer some questions about the academic research system. This information can inform the ways graduate students, post docs, and faculty set goals for themselves and consider their career paths.

In these sessions, Molly Wilson, Ph.D., a product development specialist with Academic Analytics will answer questions like these:

What do academic departments look like in your discipline?
What’s the typical timeline to promotion and tenure?
What do publication patterns look like in your discipline?
What does federal grant funding look like in your discipline?
Where do faculty members work in your discipline? How often do they move?

Moderated by Kyle Sweitzer, Ph.D., Data Resource Analyst in MSU's Office of Planning & Budgets.
