Academic Workshop on Publication Strategies and Challenges on the Job Market
The workshop is organized by the Department of Political Science, the Department of International Relations, the School of Public Policy and the Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations related to guest lecture by Wade Jacoby "European Reforms and the Leadership Deficits of Surplus Germany".
The workshop will be focusing on giving recommendations in two fields:
- 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?
