Exploring Non-faculty Careers in Academia with CIRTL Alumni

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT


People who hold advanced degrees in STEM disciplines serve in many roles across academia – from administration and research support, to teaching centers and advising – where their preparation in teaching as well as their analytical and organizational skills are invaluable. Learn what some of these professions are like and ask questions of CIRTL alumni who work in these roles in this online panel event. Panelists will talk about their specific positions, their pathway to those positions, and the value of remaining connected to academia. This is the third event in our four-part series “Exploring Career Paths with CIRTL Alumni.”

Valeria Barra, Research Software Engineer, California Institute of Technology
