NYU Steinhardt uniquely integrates education, communication, health, and the arts, with eleven departments, seventeen research centers and institutes, 292 full-time faculty, and close to seven thousand students.

  • Learn best practices for how to use digital/social media platforms to increase scholarly visibility as you enter the job market;
  • Learn about NYU’s Postdoctoral Programs; and
  • Receive access to continuous faculty development opportunities. Participants will also have the unique opportunity to formally and informally network with, and present their scholarly work to NYU faculty, postdocs, and graduate students working in their fields of study, and meet prospective faculty mentors and receive advice about their career plans.


Eligible participants include doctoral/terminal degree candidates working in fields represented among Steinhardt’s faculty, departments, and research centers.
