A Tale of Research and Teaching Institutions

Hosted by the Social and Administrative Sciences Section

Scholarship and teaching are two key responsibilities for academic faculty members, yet the expectations for these two categories vary depending on the type of institution (i.e., research-intensive vs. teaching-intensive). However, these distinctions are often unclear to graduate students applying for their first academic position. The goal of this session is to describe the different expectations in scholarship and teaching for these two types of institutions, and share examples of ways to effectively target their applications for each type of institution to help increase their likelihood of success in their academic job search. 

Objectives:

  1. Describe how expectations for scholarship and teaching differ between research-intensive and teaching-intensive institutions. 
  2. Outline and review the portfolio (e.g., CV, cover letter, teaching philosophies, and research statements) for each type of institution.
  3. Discuss how to empower graduate students applying for academic positions.
  4. Identify approaches to strengthen the application and interview process.
