Successful Interviews for Academic Positions.
Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.
This paper provides a list of questions for prospective faculty members to consider asking during job interviews. It includes suggestions for successful interviews, including being prepared to give a short presentation on current or recently completed research, being prepared to answer questions concerning such research, and being able to present oneself in a professional manner. The bulk of the paper consists of questions that candidates may ask the search committee (including questions related to teaching, research, service, and the school in general), the department chair, dean, and the vice-president. Some examples of the types of questions that the candidate may be asked are also included. The paper recommends asking the most important questions of several of the interviewers so as to ascertain the reliability of the information, and also to request a time frame in regard to notification about the position.
