Guidelines for Degree Candidates Seeking Teaching Positions
There are several ways to find out about job openings:
- The American Mathematical Society
- The Employment and Careers page has many useful links. The main resource for PhD mathematicians is the EIMS employment listing.
- Association of Graduate Schools in Catholic Colleges and Universities (AGSCCU)
- The AGSCCU has a webpage with information about the association, and in addition the website includes four databases (two for degree candidates interested in teaching/faculty positions, and two for potential employers). The URL is www.nd.edu/~agsccu
After reaching the website, the candidate chooses "Searchable Database" from the menu on the homepage, clicks on "Candidates", then clicks on "Enter your Resume Information". This third click displays a formed request for personal information, educational history, and desires pertaining to a faculty position, and the free-text field near the end of the form enables the entry of individualized additional information that might be of special interest to the potential employer.
The intention is to create a substantial cadre of candidate's sketches before opening the website to educational institutions seeking faculty.
