GSAS: Getting Ready for the Academic Job Market: A Working Group

Join this 3-week working group for Harvard Griffin GSAS students preparing for the academic job market this fall. You will learn how to craft your job market materials holistically, preparing a strong and cohesive portfolio of materials before the academic market begins to heat up in August.

Each week will focus on a different component of the dossier:
– Week 1, July 15 &18: Research statement and writing sample
– Week 2, July 22 & 25: Cover letter and CV
– Week 3, July 29 & August 1: Teaching statement.

The group will meet twice per week, 10-11:30am, via Zoom: On Mondays, for an introduction to each document, and on Thursdays, for peer-review of drafts. By the end of the series, you will have a draft of the core components of your academic job dossier.

By registering for this working group, you acknowledge that you are expected to attend all sessions. Monday presentations will not be recorded, and participation each Monday is required to participate in the respective peer-review session the following Thursday.
