2018 Mid-Atlantic Region Meeting

2018 Mid-Atlantic Region Meeting Doctoral Consortium

One of the most important things academics need to do to get published is to present their work, which allows them to get feedback from peers and senior colleagues. This year at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting doctoral students just starting their research careers can do just that. The doctoral consortium will begin with a luncheon where distinguished faculty members will provide career advice including, but not limited to, advice on deciding on which job to take, and how to manage that first job.  The role of teaching vs research focus, research expectations, building up a research expertise, and choosing coauthors will all be addressed.
