Academic Job Resources

I just sent out an e-mail to our PhD students full of links to job ad sites etc. and thought it would be useful to post it here too This is mostly going to be on econ jobs. Also, I don't know anything about searching for jobs in Asia and relatively little about non-English speaking Europe though I have been interviewed or discussed job opportunities in several European/Mediteranean countries, now and then.

For Australian academic jobs the main website is:

I find that most academic jobs in Australia are posted there.

For the US and international market in economics jobs the best website is JOE/AEA:

A lot of the top Australian and European etc. universities as well as all US universities will recruit via this website and the AEA meeting in January in the US - if you apply for jobs listed there (apart from Australian ones) you need to be prepared to pay your own way to the AEA meeting. There are also useful articles linked there on the job market in economics. There are other job sites I know of in econ (e.g. The Economist ) but they each have very few jobs listed.

For US policy related see:

More US academic jobs:

For US academic jobs you have to be aware of the very tight annual hiring cycle. Most jobs are advertised between September and February depending on field and very few long-term positions are advertised in the rest of the year. In econ, most jobs are advertised in October and November to start the next northern Autumn.

For UK jobs:


For academic jobs in the EU:

It's particularly hard to get good info on academic jobs in the environment area. The AAG has quite a few in geography and related areas but you need to be a member to access it:

Hope this helps people get aware of what is out there.
