Academic Chats are monthly lunch-time seminars for graduate students and postdocs considering academic careers. Junior faculty who are just starting out on the academic ladder are also invited.

Academic Chats are led by Rick Reis, the founder and coordinator of the internationally acclaimed Tomorrow’s Professor eNewsletter, providing advice for prospective and current academics, and author of the book Tomorrow’s Professor: Preparing for Academic Careers in Science and Engineering (Wiley, 1997). Note: The eNewsletter and the Academic Chats are for people from all disciplines.

Prior to each Chat, attendees will be sent three short Tomorrow's Professor eNewsletter postings (total reading time for all three articles should be no more than 15 - 20 minutes) on the specific topic under discussion.
