Lauren Slosky, PhD

As part of a series of short, focused conversations with PhD and postdoc alumni who successfully navigated the academic job market during the pandemic, we'll feature Lauren Slosky, PhD, an incoming Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, University of Minnesota. Lauren is a postdoc in Cell Biology and will begin her role at UMN in November 2021. We'll ask each guest five questions about their experiences as new faculty members: 1-Could you tell us a bit about your institution and your responsibilities there as a new assistant professor? 2-How did you adapt to changes in the application and interview process and/or onboarding for your position due to the pandemic? 3-Given the impact of the pandemic, are there any specific experiences, credentials, or qualifications (eg, online teaching experience) that your department or institution now seeks in potential hires? 4-What advice would you offer current postdocs and grad students who will be applying for faculty positions soon? 5-What is the hiring outlook at your institution? (please note that the answer to this question may be "We don't know yet.")
