Academic Job Search Series: Crafting the Academic Cover Letter

  • Organizer: PhD Network
  • Venue: 310 Renaissance Park, 1135 Tremont St


For those searching for positions within the professoriate, preparing an effective academic cover letter is essential. To be effective, the letter must not only present a smart distillation of what you offer as a candidate, it must also crisply adhere to expectations and conventions. Learn more about what these conventions are and how to tailor your letter to appeal to a specific faculty position.

This event is part of the ongoing Academic Job Search Series and is co-sponsored by CATLR, the PhD Network, and Employer Engagement and Career Design. Open to all Northeastern PhDs and postdocs. Lunch will be provided.
