Learn from Others' Experiences: How to Manage the Early Stage of an Academic Career

September 10, 2021 from 8:00pm  - 10:00pm CDT (UTC -5) 

Please join organizers Yan "Anthea" Zhang (Rice University) and Xinchun Li (Sun Yat-Sen University) for the first session in this series. 

In recent years, many universities in China have adopted a tenure system. In this webinar, a group of junior and mid-career faculty from premier business schools in China are invited to share their early career experiences. The guest panelists are: Wei “Vivian” Guo (China Europe International Business School), Weiwen Li (Sun Yat-Sen University), Xibao Li (Tsinghua University), Yu Li (University of International Business and Economics), Xiwei Yi (Peking University), Qinqin Zheng (Fudan University), and Weiguo Zhong (Peking University). The panel will cover the following questions: (1) How to make the transition from a doctoral student to a junior faculty? (2) How to balance research, teaching and professional services as a junior faculty? (3) How to integrate management theories and China’s contexts in academic research? And (4) How to build and maintain effective coauthor relationships?

The webinar will be conducted in Mandarin.
