Interested in Becoming a Faculty Member?

The Education Division has long provided opportunities for graduate students and new faculty members to develop professionally through conference programming and special programs like the Future Faculty Mentoring Program. The newest resource is a guide to the profession, Preparing Future Chemical Engineering Faculty compiled by Oregon State University postdoctoral researcher Dr. Laura Hirshfield. Take a look at our Future Faculty page!

Future Faculty Mentoring Program Moves into Year 3

The Education Division is continuing a demonstrably effective program for Future Faculty Mentoring at the 2014 AIChE Annual Meeting.  Interested in serving as a Mentor in the next cycle? The time commitment is modest and the possible impact on a young ChE is great. To join the pool, please fill out the short application at   http://jimi.cbee.oregonstate.edu/concept_warehouse/FFMentor/

Information about being a mentor or a mentee is available by clicking the role of interest. Questions should be directed to the program coordinator, Milo Koretsky (milo.koretsky@oregonstate.edu).
