Graduating with a Ph.D. is difficult enough on its own, without having to worry about paying off student loans and searching for available tenure-tracks across the country.  Most of you out there will find adjunct positions to help you along the way to your ultimate career goals.  So – know what to expect.

The Adjunct Project helps current and future adjunct faculty get a feel for salaries and what to expect as a cultural “norm” as far as work is concerned.  There is even an advice page.  Get suggestions and assistance from “near peers,” or colleagues who are a few years ahead of you.  They are blazing the path that is closest to your current experience so their advice won’t be outdated.
