Academic Job Hunt Advice


Applying for a job can be a difficult and trying process, but it doesn’t have to be a lonely one, and there is no need to keep re-inventing the wheel, re-discovering strategies and tactics for a successful job search. The two documents linked below were originally drafted by Lev Weitz (Ph.D. 2013) when he was here and have been revised by a group of postdocs and graduate students who have been successful in landing academic jobs.

Two other sites that may be useful are GradFutures and TigerNet. GradFutures is a campus-wide professional development initiative developed by the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School. TigerNet is Princeton's online alumni community and suite of volunteer tools.
