Three days of conversations on early career challenges


Virtual, free, and open to all

publishing • the job market • writing • teaching • mental health • work-life balance

As young scholars we are confronted with many challenges: publishing, teaching, the job market, work-life balance and institutional barriers. Often we face these demands alone and without much institutional or even moral support.

At the YSI Early Career Days we begin to confront these issues as a community by sharing experiences, building resources and providing support to navigate these early career challenges.
