Job Season

US - for people who are already post-docs, there is a "job season" in the US when most jobs are advertised and it starts September and continues into January.

UK - in England (and probably the rest of Europe) the academic year goes from October, so things are usually advertised in August to September but also at other times of the year, depending on when academics find out about grants.


A lot of jobs in Australia simply go around by word of mouth. So, it would be wise to make it known to colleagues that one is looking for a job and ask people to forward on advertisements that they come across.
