Applications for Academic Jobs

学术和非学术工作的求职有许多相似之处,但足够不同,即我将为这个博客分开它们。

Each job ad will have information about submitting applications. Many are the same but there are some with special requirements. Before submitting an application, be sure you meet the requirements. I know this seems basic but I also know that many people don’t notice or assume these requirements don’t apply to them. Since you may want to apply some day to that school when they have a job that you are qualified for, I suggest not annoying them with an application that doesn’t meet their specifications now.

Most academic jobs require
1.求职信
2.课程简历(CV)
3. A research statement
4.A teaching statement
5.至少有三个建议信。

有时他们还需要一份关于服务的陈述。

求职信:许多学校AMS standar问d cover letter. Be sure to fill it out completely. In addition to the standard letter, I recommend writing an individual cover letter for each school. Do your research about the school and let them know what it is that attracts you to that school. Yes, this is time consuming, but simply blitzing every job listed on Math Jobs and in the EIMS (Employment Information in the Mathematical Sciences) is not recommended. Most schools get a lot of applications so you need something to make yours stand out immediately as well as make it clear that you want that particular job.

简历:务必列出最近完成的。除非论文出版或一些国家成就之外,您未来的雇主对您的高中或本科成就并不感兴趣,除了纸张或一些国家成就,如金水奖学金作为本科。

Be sure to order your CV so that the items near the front are the ones of interest to the particular school. I’d put research first for a post-doc or a research school and teaching first for the others as those are the most important. For all schools, service should be last. Remember to list things in order, probably reverse chronological order for publications, and use plenty of white space. Be sure to have someone senior to you look it over and make suggestions.

Research Statement: Probably the hardest part about your research statement is making it comprehensible to mathematical people in other specialties while still showing how good you are. It is not true that being terse and obtuse will make you look better. It is fine for people to understand what you are saying. To make it look important, I recommend using the technique of putting the theorem(s) you proved in context. “My main theorem solved a 30 year old conjecture of …” will be sufficient to impress. If you then explain it comprehensibly, your readers will be even more impressed and think well of you as a possible teacher. So remember to communicate well.

This should be read by at least two people, your advisor or someone in your field and a good mathematician not in your field. That way you’ll get feedback as to how to explain why what you did is important as well as feedback on comprehensibility.

教学陈述:说你喜欢教或擅长它是不够的,但包括那些,特别是有证据备份良好的证据,它索赔是合适的。所需要的是更多的教学哲学。你怎么看你的学生?你如何与他们互动?您如何处理具有各种各样的背景?再次,让人们看看它,特别是高级人才,是个好主意。

建议书:其中一个字母应该是关于你的教学,最好是来自观察你教学的人。如果您在一年前读过这项工作市场,请在您的学校找到谁写过良好的教学信,并要求他们访问您的课程,以便他们为您写信。如果您正在申请教学职位,那么有一个以上的发言人就会很好。

This is not to say that the research letter(s) isn’t (aren’t) important, especially if you are applying for a research position. Even if you are applying for a teaching position, it is good to have someone write about your scholarship. If you are a new Ph.D, your advisor should be a letter writer. If you need more than one, pick someone familiar with your work. A letter from someone who had you in class will not help your application.

I continue to invite questions for me to answer. Good luck getting your materials written.

School has started

School has started for many people, which means that it is time to get started thinking about applying for jobs for next year. This can be a daunting prospect in the current job market. But there are steps to take that can make the beginning easier.

第1步:你真的想要什么样的工作 - 主要是教学,重点是研究,行业,政府,业务?确定会让你开心的东西,而不是让别人开心的东西,因为你需要做这份工作。

第2步:在步骤1中的工作需要什么准备?如果您想要除NSA以外的主要研究工作,那么您可能希望在某处考虑博士后职位。如果您不想要学术,您的编程技巧是否最新?警告:有更多的人寻求博士后的位置,而不是有职位,因此计划申请其他类型的工作。这实际上是对每个人的良好建议 - 你可能不会得到你的梦想工作,所以适用于各种类型的工作。

第3步。与人交谈。与您的顾问或博士后导师讨论。与您的部门椅子或老板交谈。与有那种你认为想要的工作的人交谈。在移动,工作的任期内,与他们的需求相交重要其他人,对您的工作中的时间承诺等。此博客的电子邮件问题。我会试着回答。

Step 4. Look for employers who are offering jobs that interest you. http://www.ams.org/profession/employment-services/employment-services is a good place to start, especially for academic jobs. http://www.siam.org/careers/ is also a good resource for more applied jobs.

步骤5.考虑您的情况要求的地理局限性。结果您是否需要重新思考任何上述步骤?

步骤6.调查您打算适用的地点,以确保您有兴趣,以便您可以制作最佳应用。

这是为了入门。下次将处理申请流程。

Preparing to Teach

产生新工作的一部分的焦虑之一是为该学校获得教学权。你可以做一些事情。

1.找出您的日程安排,哪些书籍用于您要教授的课程。

2.询问谁在最近教过课程。

3. Contact that person and ask for advice on pacing, homework, tests, grading policy, attendance policy, and what is required to be handed out the first day.

4.使用信息从3学期计划so that the material is covered at a reasonable rate while leaving time for answering questions, reviewing, and giving and going over tests.

5.在您开始之前选择的最初几周或学期进行作业。

6. Find out if there are rules as to the use of blue books that they buy or copying tests onto paper on which the students work.

7. Find out if there are standard paragraphs that have to be on a first day handout.

8. Even if not required, have a first day handout that includes how to reach you, your office number and building, your office hours, the required book(s) for the course, and any policies you want to have.
如果您的学校的预算在纸张使用中紧张,则可以将此讲义作为.pdf文件。

9.至少在学校开始前准备的前两个讲座。

这不是一个全面的列表,而是一个开始。随时发布问题和其他建议。

市场上是就业机会联合委员会的数学科学社区的求职博客

主持人:Sue Geller,教授
Texas A&M University


Welcome! The Joint Committee on Employment Opportunities has decided to
try to be of more help for mathematical scientists on the job market,
especially for first timers. The blogs topics will come out of our
experience mentoring job seekers, especially at the Joint Mathematics
Meeting in January each year.

Our idea is to take a job seeker through the process, from deciding
在哪里申请,申请通过电话或在会议上进行面试或
在工作场所,处理要约,谈判,也许甚至
to beginning that first job. We will also try to have blogs on topics
that people write in and ask about.

在一年中的这个时候,有些人已经接受了就业机会,其他人是
debating offers, and others are waiting to hear. My tip for this first
blog is to be sure to call places in which you are interested after you
收到另一个地方的报价。只是告诉他们你有一个报价
and ask them when you are likely to hear from them. This gives them the
opportunity to speed up the process lest they lose you. Be aware that
most places will tell you either you are no longer in the running or
they’ve filled their positions. But that is okay because you will know
whether or not to ask for more time to decide on your offer. I received
my current job by calling to inform them of another offer, which made
them look at me more carefully and more quickly. So I know such a call
can be worthwhile.

Until next time.
