Dear Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars,

We recently posted a series of jobs in Australia and we encourage you to think globally as you consider postdoctoral positions, faculty positions, or other careers. Here is that post: http://promiseagep.wordpress.com/2012/02/09/postdoc-and-faculty-jobs-down-under-consider-australia/.
Perhaps you’d like to hear some accounts from others in our community before you consider submitting an application overseas, or before you give your advisor the go-ahead to recommend you for a job with one of their colleagues in another country.
Please take this opportunity to hear from a few of the professors at UMBC who will take time to share their accounts of living in other countries and working at universities outside of the U.S.
 
Speakers:
– Dr. Ivan Erill (Spain)
– Dr. Gloria Chuku (Nigeria)
– Dr. Claudia Galindo (Colombia)
– Dr. Marie-Christine Daniel (France)
Moderator: Michelle Massey – Office of International Education Services
Light refreshments will be served.
