The academic job market. Catherine Peyroux, Kenneth Ngwa, Jonathan Rose
This workshop will consider the range of academic jobs available, both in the U.S. and elsewhere—liberal arts colleges, research universities, theological schools, community colleges, institutions outside the U.S. Acknowledging both the challenges and the opportunities of the current moment, we will explore how academic job seekers can think most flexibly, broadly, and creatively about their own goals, gifts, and possibilities as teachers and scholars.
Graduate Division of Religion/ History & Culture Workshops
The GDR/HC Workshops take place from noon to 1:00pm in Seminary Hall 101 on the designated dates, unless otherwise noted. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunches. These informal presentations and discussions aim to provide resources for navigating the PhD program itself (developing research skills, taking comprehensive examinations, writing the dissertation prospectus), for professional development (conference paper presentations, publishing, grant applications), and for engaging the job market (cv’s and application letters, the academic job market, jobs beyond the academy). The workshops are supported by the GDR and HC faculty and are open to all GDR and HC students. If you have any questions, please contact GDR Chair Virginia Burrus (firstname.lastname@example.org).
