As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Google alerts pointed me to this post of yours. Saw the Newfie flag, something I have not seen in a while. Got me all nostalgic for the old Rock. Are you also a Newfie? I come from Gambo, but been in Africa now for 20 years. Regards, Derek Keats
