Exploring Teaching Careers at Research Universities with CIRTL Alumni

April 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Faculty members who primarily teach, rather than do research, have become increasingly important for delivering courses to STEM undergraduates. Learn about the teaching faculty career path and ask questions of CIRTL alumni who are junior teaching faculty in this online panel event. Panelists will discuss the rewards and challenges of these positions, the opportunities for stability and advancement, and how non-tenure line faculty live in a research department. This is the first event in our four-part series “Exploring Career Paths with CIRTL Alumni.”


Lauren Genova, Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Delaware
Roza Ghaemi, Lecturer, Biomedical Engineering, University of British Columbia   
Nirav Patel, Lecturer, Environmental Studies, Binghamton University
