You've earned your graduate degree in psychology, and maybe even landed your first academic job as a postdoc or faculty.

    • How should you approach your new job?
    • How can you lay a solid foundation for tenure and promotion?
    • How can you meet the many challenges of an academic career, which often requires skills that are not taught in graduate school?
This book provides a systematic guide for jump-starting your career in academic psychology ' from applying and interviewing for academic positions, to settling in at your new job, to maximizing your success during the pre-tenure years.The chapters cover all key skills in which new faculty must become proficient: teaching, conducting and funding faculty-level research, serving your department and field, and "softer" activities such as networking and navigating university politics.Given the ever-increasing demands and competition in the field, this guide is an essential roadmap for new faculty.
