When applying to Faculty positions, your research statement must convince a hiring committee that your research is timely, important, and fundable. This Meetup by Dr. Meg Formato from the Hume Center for Speaking and Writing will provide examples of successful research statements as well as exercises to help you explain your projects in concise, non-specialist language.

A career coach will answer any questions that you may have regarding your CV. Send a copy of your CV to one day prior to the lab so that copies can be made ahead of time.
