If you are considering applying for an academic job in the US, do not miss this opportunity to hear Karen Kelsky, author of the well-known careers advice blog The Professor Is In.

Karen, a former tenured Professor in the US, will give an overview of the academic sector in the US along with advice on getting a US faculty job.

The talk will also cover key differences between academia in the US and the UK, including:

  • differences in the PhD
  • types and availability of postdocs
  • types of institution and what they look for when hiring

US job adverts are commonly much shorter than their equivalents in the UK, so applicants need to know how to interpret these. Karen's lecture will help you to recognise the kinds of knowledge that US hiring committees expect of potential applicants.

The lecture will be followed by an open Q&A. It is open to PhD students and postdocs from all disciplines.
