The Art of Recovery: How to Bounce back from a tenure denial

Facilitator: Terry McGlynn, PhD

About 1 out of 10 tenure-track professors are denied tenure.

What happens if you don't get tenure?
How should the situation be handled as it unfolds, and how do you address tenure denial when applying for new jobs?

What do you do with a terminal year in the position?
What are things that you can do to improve your chances of getting a new academic job, and what are some common pitfalls?

In this webinar, we'll discuss some of the common reasons why faculty are denied tenure, and how you can best plan for the worse case scenario.


About the Facilitator:


Dr. Terry McGlynn is a Professor of Biology at California State University Dominguez Hills. Terry received his PhD in Environmental, Population and Organismic Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Houston. Terry was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Gettysburg College and served on the faculty of the University of San Diego -- where he was denied tenure --before joining the faculty at CSU Dominguez Hills. He operates the blog Small Pond Science. Terry conducts research in tropical rainforests in search of explanations for mysterious patterns found in nature, emphasizing those found in colonies and communities of ants. His work combines observational and manipulative field experiments, informed by natural history, to understand how animals respond to naturally occurring ecological conditions. His laboratory is principally run by undergraduate researchers and is designed to advance the scientific careers of first-generation university students.
