Behind the scenes: Harvard faculty search

Many of us in YCC work in academia and/or are on the hunt for jobs, and the selection process for these jobs can be mired in mystery. This article gives insight into the search for tenure-track faculty in science – what search committees are looking for, how they narrow down the huge pool of qualified candidates, and how they try to combat implicit biases against women and minorities in their application reviews. A great read that has sparked a lot of conversation in the scientific community!
