Future Faculty Job Search Academy
Academic jobs typically open for applications in the fall semester and conduct phone interviews and campus visits in the early spring. For those on the academic market this year, join the spring edition of the Future Faculty Job Search Academy, a series of synchronous workshops, asynchronous resources, and peer interactions designed to help you prepare for academic interviews and job talks. In fall 2020, we hosted the first semester of the Future Faculty Job Search Academy, which included resources to prepare your cover letter, CV, and teaching, research, and diversity statements.
