Academic jobs in the UK, Canada

I was at a departmental retreat this weekend, and talk turned to careers. We realised that it might be a good idea to pool information about the academic job market in our own countries, especially in those still-rare cases where vacancy notices are posted on the internet and genuinely competitive.

So, for anyone who's interested in jobs in social and political sciences, here are the two big resources for the UK:
  1. Times Higher Education Supplement Jobs: example keyword search on 'politics' finds 31 results largely from the UK. Email alert possible.
  2. section 'Politics and Government' has 42 entries. Email alert and RSS feed possible.
  1. Jobs page of the Canadian Political Science association
  1. Societa` Italiana di Scienza Politica (but this may give a flavour of the market).
