Academic Job Search

Preparing your Materials

For efficiency purposes, the first step in your job search should be to attend one of my presentations, offered regularly throughout the year, on how to prepare the documents you will need for your academic job search, namely your CV, cover letter, and research, teaching, and diversity statements. Share your research statement with your faculty advisor and other colleagues for critical feedback. Once you have completed a final draft of your documents, send them to me for review (kargere@fas.harvard.edu).
