When a friend requested me to share some tips on academic job search, I realized it was the time to reflect on this unique journey of myself, or at least to organize a reading list that has inspired my own search. So here we go, a personal, and possibly biased, reading list about academic job search. Enjoy!


Application materials

Phone/Skype interview

Campus visit

P.S.: While we could gain significant insights from the Internet, please do not forget to seek advice from friends and colleagues around you. Academic job search should never be a solo sport!
