Interviewing for a Faculty Position

What to expect in an interview for a faculty position

You may be asked to give a job talk about your prior research, a chalk talk about your future research, or a demonstration of your teaching. You will typically talk to many faculty one-on-one about their research, and you may be asked to meet with graduate students. In addition, you will almost always be taken out to dinner with members of the search committee.

That said, there is no such thing as a completely standard job interview. Every department conducts interviews a bit differently, so effective preparation depends on your ability to sleuth out as much info as you can about your hosts’ specific expectations.
