Hi Francisco,
Have a look at the job section of Chronicle of Higher Education, perhaps you'll find some good offers there:

Good luck with your search!

Thanks for your suggestions, everyone! Has everyone given a hard-bound thesis copy to their supervisor? I am not sure if I am going to be doing this. Will it look strange if I don't?

I completed my PhD a few weeks ago and I am about to sort out thank-you gift for my supervisor. Can anyone suggest what I should get. Thanks!

I am thinking of applying for a PDF in Canada after I graduate. Does anyone know if external funding, such as SSHRC, is the only option available in the humanities? I understand that a PDF can also be funded by the supervisor's grant or the university but I would expect this doesn't happen too often in our area. Can anyone suggest anything?

Finally, could you please write anything about your experience as a PDF in Canada?

I don't agree. Being a sex worker is a choice; being a victim of racism or sexism is not.

I don't think we should be criticising Dr Magnanti... I am in the same situation she was in 2003,  correcting final chapters of my PhD and watching as my savings literally melt on my bank account. In a couple of months I'll be pretty desperate for money. I keep asking myself: WHY WAS THE FUNDING FOR 3 YEARS ONLY if most students don't manage to complete their theses during that time? WHY INSIST THAT PhD PROGRAMMES LAST 3 YEARS IF IN FACT THEY LAST 4??? Finally, shouldn't we be talking about universities turning into ruthless businesses that don't really care whether their students have the means to support themselves? Why does none understand that lack of money can be demoralising? Why don't we move the stress from 'demoralising' effects of prostitution and focus on demoralising effects of funding-short life?
