I'm a #PhD of #Psychology and work #psychologist at the Swedish National Employment Service. I have a keen interest in #PhilosophyOfPsychology, #PhilosophyOfMind, #CriticalPsychology, #HistoryOfPsychology and #Phenomenology. I blog (in #Swedish) at https://fenomenologen.se. Is that enough as an #introduction?

Job Hope Show more
I'm summoned to a job interview at my alma mater and I'm totally thrilled and excited. Its not an ordinary academic position but a positon as a licensed psychologist, with clinical assessment, teaching and supervision in the job description.
This is a job that I really, really want. Please, God (or whoever is out there), let me not screw up this job interview!
Publishing open acces as an independent scholar? Show more
Publishing open access usually means paying a rather large fee to the publisher. From where can an independent scholar get such money? Is that a potential problem with open access? It excludes independent scholars?
How to get back to academia? Show more
I got my PhD in 2016. I did everything wrong careerwise: I conducted my own research project and wrote a monograph in Swedish, so my publication list is useless and I have no contact with other research groups. Further, I was in a terrible state after six years as PhD student and also faced a divorce. Since then, I've been trying to rebuild my life and have worked as a licensed psychologist.
Question: how to get back to academia from this point? All advice welcome.
Job applications and anxiety Show more
Writing an application for a lectorship but it gives me nothing but anxiety. Since I don't think I'll get the position anyway (my academic CV is too short), maybe I should just give up on the whole thing?

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
