The landscape of academic careers is changing rapidly, and the traditional academic job market is more competitive than ever before. The production of PhDs far exceeds the number of available permanent positions. Even those limited positions are under attack, as universities rely more and more on adjunct faculty, and at many universities, the protections of tenure are being rolled back. A shift towards running universities “like a business” means increasing pressure to bring in outside funding and a reduced commitment to fields where funding is less abundant.
