1.34 Spotlight Seminar: How to apply for tenure-track positions in North America (USA/Canada)

The seminar offers an overview of the application and search process for academic positions in the USA and Canada (English-speaking). From „small liberal arts colleges” to „research 1 universities”, participants first gain an overview of the North American higher education landscape and different academic career paths (focus: tenure-track). The seminar then introduces participants to all aspects of the application and search process – from identifiying suitable positions and creating effective cover letters, CVs, research statements and teaching philosophies/ portfolios to mastering telephone interviews, job talks, and the various aspects of a multi-day campus visit. Upon completion, participants will better understand what search committees, academic departments, and hiring agents expect from applicants and how they can effectively prepare for „going on the job market”.
