Fayetteville, AR (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Viswanath Venkatesh has worked one-on-one with a number of PhD students and junior faculty members, mentoring them as they pursue publication of their research. His experience with these junior academics brought to light the dearth of readily available information that could shepherd them through the challenging process of not only publishing their research but also establishing their teaching career. This newly released book endeavors to aid those who wish to build a successful academic career. With help from his guest contributors, Venkatesh guides junior academics, PhD students and junior faculty members alike to the tools required to create a fruitful career in academia.
This book is divided into five sections: research, managing the PhD program, life after the PhD, teaching and service, and broader advice. Each section addresses the trials that junior academics might encounter, and each chapter provides advice, given by seasoned scholars who are respected and successful in their careers, on dealing with the many situations that might arise. The traditional PhD program prepares students to conduct research, but very few teach students how to create a successful research program or build a portfolio for teaching. Venkatesh offers researchers and students the tools to achieve success by filling gaps in traditional academic programs.
Road to Success is a tremendous resource for junior academics seeking to establish themselves within their community. Venkatesh has been widely published in the fields of psychology, organizational behavior, marketing, operations management, information systems, and human-computer interaction. His work has been cited thousands of times and features papers that are on the most-cited lists of multiple journals. Venkatesh has also mentored many junior faculty members and PhD students, and he hopes to help even more students through the advice provided in this book.
