Also: go to websites of departments you could see yourself working at, look for recent hires and study their CVs.
That's good advice, thanks! I'm going to do that, for sure. You're right that I can't necessarily count on current (long-term) faculty or even students to tell me what is expected. And, of course, all of this is likely to change a bit in 4-5 years depending on the market.
One thing I'm hoping to capitalize on (so to speak) is the interdisciplinary model in health/mental health care, especially since it is where my interest and experience lies. This seems to be an upcoming model of care.
