NextProf Fall Session


NextProf Day 3_149



The 2017 NextProf Fall Workshop is designed to give highly qualified participants the opportunity to explore and prepare for a faculty position in engineering . This year’s Workshop will focus on increasing diversity in the academy. Applications from women and traditionally under-represented groups at U.S. institutions who are senior-level Ph.D. candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career scientists and researchers in the field of engineering are especially encouraged.



Join colleagues, experts, faculty members and deans from across the country. At NextProf, you will:

  • Learn about the faculty search process
  • Understand how to build a successful research program
  • Find out why a network is important – and expand your network at NextProf
  • Hear from a panel of successful faculty members about their views and goals in academia


Distinguished deans, administrators, faculty and subject-matter experts from across the country.


The NextProf Research and Poster Symposium is designed to highlight the research endeavors of NextProf attendees.  The symposium is open to the general University of Michigan public, with special invitations to engineering deans, department chairs, and faculty.
