Fall 2020 Future Faculty Job Search Academy

For those starting your academic job search in fall 2020, join our Future Faculty Job Search Academy, a series of synchronous workshops, asynchronous resources, and peer interactions designed to support you as you navigate this next step in your professional journey. By the end of this short-term, intensive working group, you will have created your job search strategy and crafted your entire job search packet: CV, cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and diversity statement.

The Fall 2020 Future Faculty Job Search Academy will be facilitated via Microsoft Teams. You will be added to the Teams site once your application is received and approved. Application deadline: Monday, September 21 at 11:59 pm ET.

Help us design this program to fit your needs!
The academic job cycle typically starts with application submission in the fall, followed by virtual interviews in the winter and on-campus interviews in the spring. You should begin your academic job search at least two semesters prior to the end of your degree or postdoc.
Faculty positions vary in the amount of teaching versus research responsibilities. These differences will affect how you develop your application packet.
Institutions in the U.S. vary in mission, size, and scope. Determining what type of institution interests you will help you focus your academic job search and craft the most successful packet.
This program includes the opportunity to participate in a peer review process. With peer review, participants share early drafts of their document(s) with a small group of fellow participants and use a form to provide feedback to peers. Participants benefit from seeing how others address similar challenges in their documents and receive feedback on the effectiveness of their own drafts. How interested are you in participating in the peer review process?

Synchronous workshops will be recorded and posted in the Future Faculty Job Search Academy Microsoft Teams channel. By engaging in a synchronous workshop, you acknowledge and agree that your name, voice, video, and chat participation will be recorded and distributed within this closed group. By participating in the Academy, you also agree that you will not download or share these recordings with people outside of the Future Faculty Job Search Academy.
