Virginia Tech hosts annually that may be of interest to some of your graduate students. It is an intensive two-day event for doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars interested in academic careers.
Each year, we bring a cohort of 12 to our main campus in Blacksburg, VA for this all-expense paid workshop that includes interaction with host departments, workshops such as negotiating job offers and adjusting to life as a new faculty member, and plenty of opportunities to network with faculty in research areas of interest to our participants.

The deadline for applications to our January 2017 program is October 2, 2016. Thank you for sharing this information with any interested graduate students, and please feel free to contact me with any questions!
