Negotiating the Academic Job Offer

Congratulations! If you have received a job offer(s). You’ve done a lot of work to get here and you deserve it. So what’s next?

Start with this article, Negotiating That First Offer
(http://chronicle.com/article/Negotiating-That-First-Offer/46683/)

Keep in mind that you’ll be negotiating for an interesting list of things that you may not have considered before now. For a comprehensive list, see page 37 (http://https://beam.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/stanfordphd_cg15-16_linked.pdf) for “36 Negotiable Items in an Academic Position”. Some of these may apply to you, and some may not. You have to decide what is most important to you, and what makes sense at the institution where you’ve been offered a job. Make sure you get everything in writing and review the document in detail to ensure everything makes sense and matches up before signing.
