Workshop on Academic Practice: Academic Job Market
How to decide whether an academic job is right for you? When and how should you start to prepare for the academic job market? Are there skills students should learn or certain dissertations that give people a "leg up" on competitors? What are the differences between the European and North American academic job market? What are the pros and cons of academic and non-academic jobs?
The Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations is pleased to offer a workshop to its current PhD students that brings together four former DSPS graduates to talk about how they have navigated the academic job market, what they did wrong and what they did right, and what kind of advice they would give newly-minted PhD students from the Doctoral School, as well as current PhD students still working on their dissertations. One panel member will be joining us in person, and three will join vie video links.
