Postdoctoral positions in the Humanities and Social Sciences have become more common over the years. This webinar addresses the fundamentals of applying for a postdoctoral position specifically in these fields. Who and when do I approach for information about postdocs in my field? How is a post-doc application different from a PhD (or conventional job) application? What documentation will be expected? What questions should I expect during the interview process? How do I find postdocs in the first place? The goal of this workshop is to take the mystery out of the post-doc process, provide a basic timeline for obtaining a postdoc and help prepare you for success in finding and applying for postdocs.
