Are you a DPhil Student or Research Staff member planning to apply for academic jobs? Do you want advice on how to prepare academic applications and to improve your interview skills? This workshop, designed specifically for University of Oxford researchers, is for you.
This interactive course will equip you with the skills to maximise your chances of getting academic employment. Emphasis will be given to understanding the processes which universities use to select staff and the importance of tailoring CVs, applications, research and teaching statements accordingly. We will discuss and practice the skills required for effective performance at interview; preparation, self-presentation and how to deal with typical academic interview questions.
The workshop will cover the skills required for academic applications only (for non-academic applications please see our earlier CV and Interview Skills workshops for RS and DPhils, which devote more attention to non-academic applications and transferable skills gained in research). Follow up one-to-one career discussions can additionally be used to review intended applications and to prepare for particular interviews.
