The deadline for applying to the Graduate Division’s 12th annual Summer Institute for Preparing Future Faculty is fast approaching. The program is geared to graduate students who have advanced to candidacy and are preparing for academic careers. The program aims to enable graduate students to excel in all aspects of academic life as they pursue an advanced degree at Berkeley and transition from graduate school to future academic careers. The Institute will take place from May 21 through June 25, 2014. Testimonials from Institute Fellows: “One of the most useful courses offered at UC Berkeley for graduate students.” “Overall, the course was everything it promised. I feel like after so many years in graduate school, this is the first time I’ve gotten a comprehensive, systematic presentation/picture of what the field is really like.” “I definitely feel more prepared for the job market and for my first faculty job. I think I have realistic expectations about my roles and responsibilities, and I’ve gotten resources to identify my deficiencies (and strengths) while I have time to work on them.” Applications are due by Friday, March 14, 2014 at 4 pm.
