From January to April 2022, the City Institute will hold virtual professional training meetings for graduate and 4000-level undergraduate students who have great interest in urban studies. Once a fortnight CITY will hold writing sessions which will be monitored by a City Institute post-doctoral fellow who will provide writing tips and feedback. Every other fortnight a faculty member will give a talk on an aspect of professional training such as: writing a CV; writing abstracts & papers for publication; writing research proposals & grant applications; knowledge dissemination & engaging with social media; developing course proposals; applying for academic jobs; work paths outside academia; and job interviews.
