Job Market Candidates/Placement
A Placement meeting for 2013 job market candidate was held on Wednesday, September 4th from 12:30pm - 2:00pm in 4103 Tydings Hall. Drs. Hellerstein and Stevens presented important information about the market process and Fall 2013 deadlines. Kelly fox also presented briefly on expectations for letters of recommendation.
Please let Drs Hellerstein and Stevens know if you have any questions about going on the market.
Candidates going on the market should pay strict attention to the following points:
1) Candidates must sign up to present in either 708 or 709 early in the fall. Although candidates can present as late as the first week in November, we recommend an early date so that they can get meaningful feedback early enough to incorporate it fully into job market paper revisions. John Shea will be arranging the scheduling of 709, so if a candidate's work falls naturally into 709, please keep an eye out for email instructions from him about signing up for 709. Ben Zou and Judy will be coordinating the 708 schedule, so please keep an eye out for our email. Candidates should make sure that at least their main advisor will be able to be present at the requested date(s), and ideally their whole committee should be able to attend.
2) Candidates must make sure that they have secured commitments from their expected letter writers to write letters of recommendation. These can be conditional commitments for now in case a candidate decides not to go on the market, but these names will need to be on candidates' CVs by September 13. Candidates should be discussing their progress and intent with letter writers.
Candidates should also be paying close attention to the September deadlines on the Placement Timeline. All candidates must have a CV, advisor authorization, and a website by the end of September in order to be included in the final list of job candidates.
