Karen Kelsky

Karen Kelsky is the Founder of The Professor Is In -- a blog and business dedicated to helping Ph.D.s master the academic and post-academic job markets -- and a regular columnist at the Chronicle of Higher Education. A former R1 tenured professor and department head, and a cultural anthropologist by training, Dr. Kelsky explains the unspoken rules of the academic job search, from building a competitive record and writing competitive job applications to interviewing effectively and negotiating offers. And she provides support for those transitioning out of the academy. Her book, The Professor Is In: The Essential Guide to Turning Your Ph.D. Into a Job, is available from Random House (Three Rivers Press).
