Venue: N15 103

the workshop will be focusing on giving recommendations in two fields:

Publication strategies

  • when to start publications; whether to turn their theses into book or only articles
  • whether it makes sense to publish book reviews or to focus on articles only

What kind of job you should start to get

  • postdoc, or looking for tenure track positions
  • teaching fellowships
  • should you focus on US or Europe?
