Future Faculty Workshops

What is FFW?

FFW stands for Future Faculty Workshop.

Northeastern ADVANCE Future Faculty Workshops are designed for senior graduate students and post-docs interested in faculty careers. Future Faculty Workshops are themed in discipline clusters and held in conjunction with interdisciplinary workshops or conferences on campus or in the Boston area. In addition to attending a professional conference, invited participants will attend a one-day workshop that provides information to stimulate professional growth. Past workshop topics have included:
INW Participants

  • Understanding What a Search Committee is Looking For
  • How to Stand Out in the Interview
  • Negotiating a Package and Understanding the Offer
  • Writing Proposals
  • Balancing Personal and Professional Life
  • Establishing a Research Program and Managing Graduate Students

In addition to excellence in scholarship, acceptance will be based on the ability of the participant to enhance the diversity of the professoriate in engineering and science, so there is a focus on women and underrepresented minorities. Applications are sought from senior Ph.D. students (one or two years away from graduating) and Postdoctoral Research Associates. If your application is accepted, travel expenses to the meeting will be covered by the Northeastern ADVANCE program.
