Academic Job Search: An Experience Report

Speaker: Bin Lin

Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about my experience of academic job search during the last year. More specifically, this talk will cover the resources used for finding open positions, the application package preparation, the interview process, and the lessons I learned which might be useful for others who also plan to find a job in academia. As personal experience can be biased, I would also like to encourage seminar attendees to share their own experience.
