Job Market Resources


My job market materials and experiences are primarily applicable to those who are applying for research-intensive positions in psychology departments in the U.S. and the U.K. None of this is meant to be prescriptive advice; YMMV!! Rather, because I benefited a lot from other people sharing their materials and experiences with me, I wanted to make my materials available as further examples that might be helpful, and to share my subjective impressions about the process.
