Preparing for an academic interview

At the last NCEAS Roundtable I presented my “job talk” for an upcoming academic interview. I received many insightful comments from those in attendance and I think my final presentation will be much improved by incorporating this feedback.

In preparation for my interview I have also been reading all of the job search / academic interview articles that I can get my hands on. I thought I would post a few of the best resources that I have come across during this process. Please feel free to add more in the comments section!

  1. Dr.¬†Marissa Baskett’s list of resources¬†(contains the resources below and many more!)
  2. Ecology 101: Preparing for academic interview
  3. Job quest in ecology and evolution (extremely helpful, contains real application packages)
  4. How to get a teaching job at a primarily undergraduate institution

  1. Thanks, Derek, for posting these links! Marissa Baskett’s website also has an excellent list of writing/presentation resources (link in upper left of her grants/jobs page).
