Many postdoctoral scholars wish to become academic faculty; however obtaining a faculty position is only the beginning of transitioning to academic independence.  Upon becoming a professor, one must consider multiple options: whom do you hire? What equipment and supplies do you purchase? Which students do you choose? How do you balance time for research, grants, and teaching? Join our panelists to learn from those who have recently walked this path to learn how to make the transition to academic independence as smooth as it can be.
