Education & Academia

Welcome to the Education & Academia Community!

The following sampling of tools and resources should be combined with your own research. We suggest you use targeted keyword searches to find representative employers and opportunities, explore professional associations, join LinkedIN groups, and browse additional job board postings.  Remember to also search LinkedIN and QuakerNet to connect with Penn alumni in fields related to your interests. Additionally, the sample jobs and employers are only a small selection of what’s posted in Handshake – log in to see much more!

We also suggest using the Career Exploration section of our website for more information or researching by major.

For resources on the Academic Job Search for faculty and related positions, please go to our community for PhDs and Postdocs.
