Negotiating Your Tenure Track Job

Thursday 2 PM Pac/5 PM EST

This webinar will break down the stages of the tenure track offer negotiation process, explain the things that can and can’t be negotiated at different ranks and types of institutions, and provide examples of successful negotiating language as well as common negotiating errors and pitfalls.

Negotiating points we’ll examine include salary, teaching release, moving expenses, start-up funds, conference and travel funding, research leave/junior sabbatical, summer salary, and the spousal hire.

We’ll discuss how to evaluate the culture and expectations of the institution and calibrate requests to the institutional context. We will dispassionately examine the phenomenon of the rescinded offer.

We will also address special concerns for women and people from historically marginalized communities in the negotiation process.
