Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Academic Job Search Series

Academic Job Search Workshops prepare postdocs and graduate students to enter the academic job market. Many units across Yale help to support the various facets of an academic job search. 


The Poorvu Center’s Teaching Development and Initiatives team hosts workshops that prepare job candidates to talk about teaching in their application materials and interviews, and they count toward the Certificate of College Teaching Preparation (CCTP) program as Advanced Teaching Workshops (ATWs). 


The Poorvu Center’s Graduate Writing Lab hosts workshops that support job candidates to articulate their values and career vision through their written application materials. 


Other organizations outside of Poorvu hosting Academic Job Search Workshops include:
