Becoming a new faculty member at a university or college is challenging due to the number of roles a faculty member plays and the lack of preparation for these roles. Moreover, doctoral training most likely has not prepared the new faculty member for much beyond how to conduct research themselves and, perhaps, how to teach topics that are close to their research area. The pandemic and recent events have caused changes that will not fade away with the vaccine—online and hybrid learning and conferences, remote mentoring and networking, increased focus on diversity and inclusion. The great news is that most faculty members transcend all these challenges and feel they have a most rewarding, intellectually stimulating, and flexible career, and they don’t want to retire! The goals of the ESEC/FSE 2024 New Faculty Symposium (NFS) are to help new Software Engineering faculty members launch a successful career and manage the challenges while feeling joy in their life as a faculty member.

The agenda for the Symposium may include:

  • Publication strategies
  • Career Management, promotion and networking
  • Strategies and practices for managing students
  • Building and supporting a research program
  • Balancing teaching, service and research
  • Ethics and living in a multicultural community
  • Time management and work-life balance

How to Participate:

Any interested participant can sign up for the symposium. There is no application process. New faculty members, prospective faculty members, and mid-career faculty members can all benefit from sharing experiences, doubts, answers, and viewpoints.

If you are an experienced community member (faculty, industry, government, etc.) and would like to contribute by giving a talk or serving on a panel, please reach out to the organizers. We are designing a rich program and would love to know of your interest in helping out.
