Searching for career opportunities is similar to searching for grants, it should be started at least a year in advance of when you’d actually want to take up the position (or need the funding). Job search engines are the most efficient method of finding positions being advertised in your field. However, if you are ‘keen’ and wish to seek out a particular University because of either the overall strength of the Department or simply because of the location, I suggest that you contact the Department Chair directly and express your interest. This information can be sought through the respective University website. Make sure that you ask your mentor(s) and multiple fellows to edit your resume and cover letters (E-mails) in order to make the best first impression.
