Jobs & Opportunities: Some Basic Resources

Following a query from our postgraduate community, please find below a list of principal sites with listings of academic jobs currently advertised.

University Vacancies Ireland: 

Times Higher Education Job Search: Lists jobs in the UK, Ireland, and some in the US and continental Europe. 

The Chronicle of Higher Education This is the go-to site for jobs in the US.

The MLA job list Useful for North American and overseas jobs in particular. Job interviews often take place at the annual MLA conference. 

The European Commission EURAXESS jobs database: This resource has details of all the postdoctoral and PhD positions made available through EU-funded projects. 

The following services provide weekly emails and on-site lists:  (UK/EU focused) (US focused).

While these listings are extremely useful, none of them are entirely failsafe, and checking HR sites of the relevant universities regularly is advisable. Twitter is also becoming a really good source of job info and listings, using hashtags such as #AcademicChatter and #AcademicJobs. There are also a couple of dedicated academic jobs accounts on twitter, e.g. @AcademicJobs, @AcademicJobBot.

Following the reconstruction of the IASIL website, we intend to convert this post into a dedicated page that will be regularly updated.
