Academic Chats are monthly lunch-time seminars for graduate students and postdocs considering academic careers. Chats are an opportunity to learn from and share experiences with others who are launching their career as a faculty member. Guest speakers include faculty from Stanford and local colleges and staff from campus offices.
Academic Chats are led by Rick Reis, professor emeritus in Mechanical Engineering, founder of Tomorrow’s Professor eNewsletter, and author of the book Tomorrow’s Professor: Preparing for Academic Careers in Science and Engineering (Wiley, 1997). The eNewsletter and the Academic Chats provide advice for prospective and current academics from all disciplines.
Prior to each Chat, attendees will be sent three short Tomorrow's Professor eNewsletter postings (total reading time for all three articles should be no more than 15 - 20 minutes) on the specific topic under discussion.
