We invite all IS Junior Faculty in Region 2 (Europe/ Middle East/Africa) to apply to participate in the Junior Faculty Consortium. The Junior Faculty Consortium consists of panels, discussions, and interactive sessions built around issues related to becoming a successful member of the professoriate and to advance your career. A select group of highly successful IS faculty from universities around the world will lead each session. Each participant will have the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of both new and senior faculty and to share their experiences, thoughts, and concerns about developing a career in the academy.

We look forward to receiving your ECIS 2019 Junior Faculty Consortium applications!
