Description - Starting Your Career in Academic Psychology by Robert J. Sternberg

You've earned your graduate degree in psychology, and maybe even landed your first academic job as a postdoc or faculty. How should you approach your new job? How can you lay a solid foundation for tenure and promotion? How can you meet the many challenges of an academic career, which often requires skills that are not taught in graduate school? This book provides a systematic guide for jump-starting your career in academic psychology - from applying and interviewing for academic positions, to settling in at your new job, to maximizing your success during the pre-tenure years. The chapters cover all key skills in which new faculty must become proficient: teaching, conducting and funding faculty-level research, serving your department and field, and "softer" activities such as networking and navigating university politics. Given the ever-increasing demands and competition in the field, this guide is an essential roadmap for new faculty.
