New site for the 09-10 market!

I've just noticed that the new wiki for psychology jobs is up, and it has a set of discussion forums for users. I would recommend we move the discussion there: I think the new site looks great, and should be very useful!

Welcome (to the 2008-09 search)!

This blog is a shameless copy of Psychology Academic Job Search Discussion (, but is intended to cover the 2008-09 academic job market in Psychology. Hopefully, if people use the blog, I hope to make a new version for the 2009-10 market (though I hope not to be in it!) so that the site may be useful to future job seekers.

From Jobseeker's original post:

This blog is based on what appears to be a very successful site for sociologists ( It is intended to give psychology job seekers, and any other interested people, a place to discuss topics related to the academic job market.

The basic rules are (shamelessly stolen from sociology):
  • Please do not list individual's names
  • Please maintain a supportive, helpful environment
  • Feel free to share positive and negative job search/interviewing experiences
There are a few basic topics for discussion listed below. Please feel free to suggest additional topics. You can contribute to the conversation by adding "comments" on each topic. Note that all comments can (and probably should) be made anonymous.

Good luck to everyone!
