I just posted the following question over at Academia.SE:
Visiting professor opportunities for PhD candidates
In my field, economics, I occasionally see opportunities for ABD PhD Candidates to apply for one- or two-semester visiting professor positions (presumably as sabbatical cover). I have only ever heard of two such opportunities, and each was through an email forwarded by our graduate adviser. Are these positions advertised centrally anywhere?
I think thematically it definitely makes sense over at Academia, but I can't help but wonder whether it would get better answers in this community, given that I suspect the answer is probably field-specific. Would the question be appropriate at Economics.SE? And, separate but not unrelated, where do you think it would get better answers?
