Junior Faculty Consortium

Monday August 9th, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST

AMCIS 2021 continues the tradition of hosting the Junior Faculty Consortium. This year’s theme will be Academic Resilience in the Post-COVID World and we will be hosting our activities on Monday August 9th – see the schedule below.

The pandemic disrupted many aspects of junior faculty work – from halting research, pausing data collection, generating new and sudden demands for virtual curriculum and online delivery and creating new stresses for personal well-being. The Junior Faculty Consortium theme will recognize these disruptions and bring together participants in the early stages of their academic career to discuss career success and “Academic resilience in the post-COVID world”. Our main goal is to offer all participants insights into getting back on track, post pandemic, with their academic career and offer mentoring and advice that can help them be successful and marketable in their career.

The consortium draws together not-yet-tenured faculty along with faculty mentors from a variety of schools throughout the Americas region for activities and discussion aimed to offer all participants insights into their academic career that can help them be valuable, marketable, and successful in their career from their own perspective, and that of their university and the academia.

The consortium will be limited to the first 40 applicants who are completed their PhD and in an academic position. Link to apply: http://go.ivey.ca/5zLv
