Postdoc advertising sites

  1. Nov 17, 2012 #1
    Where to people usually look for postdoc adverts?

    I am aware of hyperspace and academicjobsonline but are these the only places to check? (I am interested in theoretical ads, specifically gravity etc)

    You neglected to mention where you are, or where you are looking for such position.

    In the US, by this time, you should be a member of the APS, and should have known about (i) the APS/AIP career website and (ii) have attended conferences such as the APS March/April meetings where a lot of potential employers post their jobs and even conduct job interviews there. These are the most common ways people look for postdocs.

    However, you should have also made use of your professors/supervisor, who should have an inkling on who's looking for postdocs, or at the very least, give you some leads or contacts.

    I'm in the UK. Thanks for the APS career website, I will look there too, but previously this hadn't been mentioned to me. I have of course talked about this with supervisor and my primary applications are to places he has recommended, however at this stage I am trying to broaden my search also for which such job listings sites are pretty useful.

    Then you should look at the IoP job website, which I'm guessing there is one, and which I would think you are a member of already by now.

    yep, already done that (I think it's now known as brightrecruits.com), not much in my field unfortunately-seems to be mostly condensed matter or more experimental stuff, as I say I believe hyperspace, academicjobsonline, spires-jobs to be the best places for theory postdocs I have found. Just wanted to check if any other similar sites likes these existed.
