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 multi-session workshops focus on the essentials - CVs, cover letters, teaching philosophy statements, and diversity statements. Each boot camp includes a panel of graduate alumni and current faculty members, who share their experiences navigating the academic job search process. 

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

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.

Hosted virtually in 2021, these sessions will include instructional materials and sample academic job application documents.
