Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is an MAA program that gives recent PhDs in the mathematical sciences the tools they need to thrive in an academic career. Through workshops, special sessions, and an ongoing email thread, Project NExTers develop strategies to improve their teaching, form connections with potential collaborators, and discuss other concerns such as life-work balance, tenure, and diversity in STEM. Since its founding in 1994, there have been over 1700 fellows, which now form a network of mathematicians all over the US. I belong to the Blue '17 cohort. If you want to know more, email me! I am happy to talk about all the great ways that Project NExT supports recent PhDs in their transition from graduate school to life as a junior faculty member.
