Behind the Scenes with the Search Committee: Negotiating the Faculty Job Offer - Sciences and Engineering

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
9:00 am to 10:00 am

In this session, a panel of Duke faculty members will discuss the negotiation process for faculty positions. Questions include:

  • What does a typical start-up package look like? How much can you negotiate it, and how can you provide justification for asking for more?
  • How much grant money are you expected to bring if you get hired?
  • What are some common pitfalls in the negotiation process?
  • Can you negotiate for a position for your partner or spouse? If so, when do you bring it up?


This event is part of the 2019-20 Academic Job Search Series, co-sponsored by The Graduate School, the Duke Career Center, and the Office of Postdoctoral Services. Questions? Contact Molly Starback, Director of Duke Postdoctoral Services, at
