I am a final year PhD student in Australia. I want to slowly transition into lecturing from research. To begin with, ideally, i would like to find a post doc position with a group leader who doesn't mind me gaining some teaching/ lecturing experience while i am a post doctoral researcher.
Here in Australia things are a bit different if one wants to get into lecturing. My understanding is that we will be required to do research on the side in order to lecture OR must have many years of research experience.
My question is to all post doctoral researchers in the USA. Are there opportunities in the US to lecture while you hold a post doc position? If yes, do you have an idea as in how to transition from research to lecturing (completely) in the USA? Do you need to find a mentor when you begin? I am looking for ideas and suggestions and any insight would be greatly appreciated.
