The first question is about international jobs. Fellow Smoker JM asks the following:
[I]s [there] an international equivalent to HigherEdJobs.com. I see ads for very competitive positions in the UK, Ireland, Australia and just a few on the Continent. And that same job in Ankara every year.The second question, from Difficile, hopes for an increase in adjunct positions since there sure as shit won't be any tenure-track jobs out there. But, in their own words:
I would like someplace to go and hear about jobs in Polytechnics, Volkshochshule, and other spots abroad. I want this simply because that would improve chances of being hired at all.
Also, is there anywhere I can read up on the British system so that I don't accidentally sound like a dolt?
I have a question that burns more and more each day. With the elimination of so many tenure-track jobs we've seen lately, will there be a concordant increase in adjunct positions? My question put another way, I know I should be very worried about getting a tenure-track job offer, even though I'm coming from the low end of the top twenty (according to Leiter), but should I also be worried about not even getting some kind of adjunct work? Will I really have to pump gas as my parents warned me eight years ago when I told them I wanted a PhD in philosophy?First thought, consult a doctor to make sure that burning question isn't something more serious. Second thought, you might be too qualified to pump gas, but don't despair. There are plenty more jobs we can do that would be more rewarding if the TT or adjunct thing doesn't work out. Second Ph.D anyone?
