When applying to faculty positions, your research statement must convince a hiring committee that your research is timely, important, feasible and fundable. Dr. Megan Shields Formato, of the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking, will review examples of successful research statements and lead exercises to help you explain your projects in concise, non-specialist language. This document is required at research-focused, and often also at teaching-focused universities. You will learn about what makes an effective statement and have the opportunity to get started on your own.
