Launching Your Professional Life: How to Publish, Get a Job, and Write Grant Proposals

Date: 30 November 2017, 2.00 to 3.30 pm

Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and
Ethnic Diversity, Goettingen, Seminar room in the Old Villa
Hermann-Föge-Weg 12, 37073 Goettingen

This seminar will provide some unwritten insights and suggestions to younger scholars for how best to navigate the difficult process of

  • getting your research published,
  • applying for academic jobs,
  • performing at job interviews, and
  • applying for research grants.

These insights are derived from my personal experiences of jobhunting, journal and book publishing, and grant-writing, as well as my three decades of serving as reviewer of article and book manuscripts, grant-reviewing committee member, and university hiring committee member. They may be skewed more to the U.S. academic scene, so other European-based scholars should feel free to chime in.
