I am reaching out to get a piece of friendly advice on the search process for a faculty job worldwide.
I was awarded a PhD in Pure Mathematics from a Russel Group university in July 2018. I started a postdoc during my PhD, and it is has been now one year and a month of my postdoc. I wrote the grant for my postdoc and my doctoral advisor secured the funding. My research interests are in analysis on quantum groups and noncommutative spaces, contractions of Lie groups, geometric quantisation. I have 12 preprints and nine are published, and more are coming. There are 48 citations of my papers in Google Scholar.
I have put my best efforts in the application materials. At the moment, I have applied for 145 faculty jobs mainly in the USA ( both tenure-track and non-tenure-track). My references for the applications are the tenured recognised professors and heads of the departments in Europe. Could anyone in the community share a piece of friendly advice on what I might be doing wrong?
My sole aim is to improve and suit the faculty search. Unfortunately, I have not been given any constructive feedback so far (cold, formal e-mails mostly).
The time scale is from mid-November 2018 - up until now. I followed up with 6-8 e-mails and received cold written official rejection e-mails (eight overall). The rest are keeping silence. I have not had any interviews yet.
Many thanks to everyone who replied!
