Supporting ISTR's Emerging Scholars

 Academic job interviews

This session will offer perspectives on the academic job interview process from those who have participated in search committees in Europe, the United States, South America, and Australia.  Participants will hear insights on what is expected during academic job interviews and what faculty are looking for from candidates. 

The Non-Academic Job Market

 A range of non-academic career paths are available for researchers in the Third Sector.  Speakers in this session will discuss how they found their current position, what the position requires, and how a PhD could/should present themselves as a possible candidate for similar positions.

Navigating Job-market and Career Strategies

This discussion will identify pathways to different career opportunities for those in the early stages of their career development and those considering a transition mid-career.  What types of career opportunities are available for those in the Third Sector?  What types of jobs might be a good fit for ISTR members seeking work?  What are the main factors that should be considered in choosing a career path? 

Post-doc opportunities

In this session, panelists will discuss how to secure a (funded) post doc, what to expect from a post doc, and how to best use the years spent in a post doc position and plan ahead for the next stages of your career. 

Teaching AND Learning: Perspectives on Engaged Scholarship in the Third Sector

This instructional, demonstrative and interactive workshop will present best practices and lessons learned about teaching in a nonprofit graduate program where a comprehensive model of engaged scholarship has been refined over the last 14 years.  Faculty and current students will present how they have used cases and applied consulting projects to teach and study nonprofit management topics. Impact data and examples of finished projects will be presented.  Systems for managing student team dynamics, fairly assessing group projects, and strategies for ensuring a good experience for “client” organizations will be shared as well as a detailed applied project guidebook that was written by and for students.
