Research, administration or both? Dr. Nnakwe answers your questions about getting a faculty or administration position, gives advice and tells you about her own career path in this lively and informative presentation. This webinar was organized for DFI Fellows by GCMHERC. Dr. Nnakwe is introduced by Phyllis Brust, Director of the Greater Chicago Midwest HERC (gcmherc.org).
Dr. Nnakwe was on camera during the presentation, but Vimeo does not support such cameras, so you will not see her (too bad), but you will see the PowerPoint slides.
