Find academic jobs

Look beyond the job adverts

Finding an academic job, whether a sessional teaching post, fellowship, post-doctoral researcher or lecturing position, often involves more than just scouring the current job adverts.

Your academic credibility, your professional reputation and your academic contacts can all play an important part in landing an academic job.

Looking for academic jobs beyond your current university?

Many academics expect to move universities, including working outside their home country, as a normal part of developing their academic career. An Academic Career has resources to help you understand academic career paths in a wide range of countries around the world, plus sources of academic job adverts.
