Academic Job Search Boot Camps

Designed for graduate students who are headed for the academic job market and those thinking about it for the future, these day-long workshops focus on the essentials - CVs, cover letters, teaching philosophy statements, and diversity statements.

Boot Camps are held for Engineering and Natural Science academic job seekers, as well as Humanities and Social Science academic job candidates.

Each boot camp includes a panel of graduate alumni and current faculty members, who share their experiences navigating the academic job search process. 

These events typically receive sponsorship from multiple stakeholders, including the Graduate School, the Center for Career Development, The McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and the Postdoc Council.

Breakfast and lunch are provided, as are instructional materials and sample academic job application documents.
