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 They are blazing the path that is closest to your current experience so their advice won’t be outdated.
