Love being at a university? There are many career paths for PhDs in academia, beyond the tenure-track faculty path.

Guest Speakers:

  • Chris Golde, director of special projects, VPGE
  • Jeff Schwegman, Humanities & Arts Initiatives Coordinator

Academic Chats are monthly lunch-time discussion groups for graduate students who are considering a career as a faculty member. Chats are an opportunity to learn from and share experiences with others who are preparing for or launching their career as a professor.

Offered throughout the academic year, each Academic Chat focuses on a specific topic and features guest speakers from Stanford and local colleges.
