Are you having trouble writing the necessary statements for an academic job application that clearly, yet accurately reflects your background and ambitions? Let us help you get there with academic job statement editing!
Our editors have decades of experience reading, reviewing, and editing statements. We also have experience from the other side: as part of academic hiring committees and professional colleagues. We can help you produce a short text to describe your professional goals, teaching style, or research project that you can use for all of your applications.
Note that this service applies to short statements only; our advisors recommend 1-2 page statements. Longer research proposal editing services are also available in our Academic Proposal Evaluation. Each statement is sold separately.
This service includes the following:
- An evaluation of your statement that addresses structure, tone, clarity, and language/mechanics by a statement expert.
- Comments on your draft and a basic written assessment.
- Postgraduate pricing includes one additional (optional) editorial pass once you’ve made changes to the statement based on our feedback. (Grad students receive one pass)
Pricing is based on the number of pages (500 words per single-spaced page) and whether you’re in grad school or post-PhD/MFA (or other terminal degree). Note that grad students will need to supply proof of enrollment or a valid student ID in order to obtain discount, emailed to [email protected] before work will begin.
To purchase copyediting in addition to the evaluation, get our copyediting add-on!
Note: Each type of statement is priced separately. This service is for short statements (generally only 1-2 pages, or max 1000 words) and does not apply to other application materials, such as CV, research proposal, etc. This service does not include drafting, rewriting, or line editing your draft. You are responsible for making any suggested changes and for finalizing any changes to your draft before submission. Services do not guarantee acceptance or job offers.
