I'm currently a postdoc overseas in Europe. My plan is to return to the United States. The original plan was to conduct a U.S.-wide job search. However, something has come up, and I will need to geographical limit my search to one area. The area is rather large and there are a lot of schools, which vary in their focus and type. I went on the job market this year with my limitation, but I still have next year as well in my current postdoc. Without going into detail, staying at the postdoc one more year will be okay for my situation.
For anyone who has limited their job search, how long did it take you to find a TT position in the area? What type of jobs were you able to get in the mean time? What other advice could you give me? My publication record is good for how long I've been post-graduation (less than a year). I also have plenty of connections in the area so securing adjunct work and working in others' labs will not be too difficult. I'm also looking into the possibility of another postdoc in the area.
