Negotiating an 德赢官网Academic Job Offer: What are the Secrets??

The 德赢官网academic job market is difficult,但是人们仍然得到工作机会。When you do get a job offer,how do you negotiate?Should you negotiate?I think the answer is yes and I offer some tips for how to negotiate in this post.

Negotiate this,混蛋!!


For my first job offer,我根本没有谈判。I had heard I was supposed to negotiate.然而,我不知道从哪里开始,也不知道该问什么。I meekly asked for more moving expenses.The chair said he could not budge on moving expenses.Instead,he offered me $1,我接受了这个提议。

我在另一个地方采访过,yet withdrew from the search before (potentially) receiving an offer.我听说我可以用第二个提议来谈判,but I feared that I would appear greedy.

It was my first 德赢官网academic job and I was happy to have a job at all.所以,I did not negotiate for a better salary.

I am not alone.Only seven percentof women negotiate when they get a job offer,与57%的男性相比!!

After six years in my first job,很明显,我的薪水没有竞争力。我向我的高级同事征求关于如何加薪的建议。They told me that the only way to get a raise was to go on the job market and get another offer.所以,I sent off three job applications.

One of those applications turned into an interview and then a job offer.The job offer included a significantly higher salary and a substantial amount of perks that I did not have at my then-current position.

Still,I did not want to regret not having negotiated.And,当了六年的教授,我听过很多人在谈判时获得更多资源的故事。所以,我决定在以下每一类中要求更多的资源:


  • base salary
  • 科研经费
  • 会议基金
  • 设备资金
  • course releases
  • summer salary
  • 搬家费
  • 住房补贴


For each thing I asked for,I gave a justification.When I asked for help with housing,I explained that I would be unlikely to be able to sell my house due to the housing crisis.当我要求课程发布时,我说我会用时间写一份补助金。vwin徳赢竞技当我申请研究基金时,I explained what I would do with the money.

I made out my list of requests and accompanying justification,由一些值得信赖的人管理,把它寄给院长。

我没有得到我想要的一切,但是院长愿意给我一些我想要的东西。

我发现这个过程的有趣之处在于它的难易性。很难鼓起勇气去要求东西。But once you have the nerve to ask for things andknow what to ask for,negotiating is remarkably easy.你提出要求,院长要么说是,要么说不。

在我看来,the Dean said yes to some things,met me halfway on others,and said no to others.

我把这封信带回了我的大学,他们给了我很大的加薪,研究基金,and course releases.最困难的部分是做一个决定:我应该留在我的工作中,用更好的资源,还是我应该离开去未知的领域冒险??

最终,我决定搬家,因为新的工作和地点对我的家人来说似乎是最好的选择,而且我已经准备好在职业上有所不同。

既然我有了这份工作和相应的资源,我很高兴能通过谈判,因为我觉得我得到了最好的交易。在我的第一份工作中,我总觉得我应该谈判一下。

这里的重要教训是,你永远不知道如果你问的话会得到什么,但你可以确定如果你不问,你什么也得不到。

今天是十一月,也称为acwrimo

For the past couple of years,德赢官网社会媒体上vwin徳赢竞技的学术作家已经开始参与acwrimo-学术写作月-国家小说写作月的学术版本。

Work with schools : writing a composition : girls each weari...

I first heard about 阿克拉维莫from PhD2Published - which has a 邮递announcing and describing the 2013 version of #AcWriMo.I have done #AcWriMo for the past two years - using my 推特帐户。

I plan to do it again this year,我希望你能加入我。

以下是Acwrimo的四个基本组件,您可能会发现它们很有用:

  • Decide on your goals.These goals can be simple or multifaceted.For example,you can have a goal of writing 750 words every weekday,or completing four pomodoros every day,或完成一篇文章的草稿。
  • 在公共论坛上陈述你的目标。你可以在上面做这个推特使用hashtag阿克拉维莫.You can do it on the public电子表格由phd2发布。你可以通过电子邮件与朋友建立一个责任小组。You can post your goals in the comment section below.你可以在任何你喜欢的地方做。But,don't skip this step!!
  • 发布你的进度。如果你在Twitter上,您可以使用acwrimo hashtag发布每日更新。If you are on Facebook,发布的phd2还具有Facebook可以发布的页面。重要的是要有公众责任感,因为它确实有效!!
  • 在11月底宣布你的成功并庆祝!!

本着公众责任的精神,这是我11月的写作目标。

在十一月,我每天至少要写vwin徳赢竞技两个小时。我的大部分工作是修改,so I will stick with a time goal,as opposed to a word count goal.When I am doing new writing,我每天试着写500个新词。

我的具体写作目标包括:

  1. Put the final touches on OUP15 - the last chapter of the种族文本我在写!!
  2. 修改DEP5——这是我关于被驱逐出境的书的第五章。
  3. 写完DEP6——这是我关于混乱的被驱逐者的书的第六章。
  4. 把DEP7的初稿拼凑在一起——这是同一本书的第七章。
  5. Finalize ASA conference paper.
  6. Work on grant for next project and submit to any November deadlines.
我会在Twitter上发布我的进度。Happy #AcWriMo!!
