(8) Anyone else feel that applied conservations genomics is a big grift meant to pry funds from gullible funders/non-scientitist leadership? 8) The funders who put money to genomics usually won't/can't pay for conservation directly. Take some of the NSF funds for conservation genomics and let USFWS keep their money for population monitoring and habitat protection. Otherwise that comp bio money will go to other nerdy things with no conservation impact at all. NSF funded climate science isn't the thing solving climate change. But it's necessary to know what to do with climate change.

However, interfolio is requiring the three references. (2) why does this same discussion of references come up for every application? interfolio can require the information without immediately contacting the references. The search committee wants to gather the information for if/when they decide to contact them so they can act quickly. 3) @2 because we all over-think things. (4) I think 1 might have a point. Normally you can just upload a single PDF to interforlio with all the references, but interfolio asks for 3 different files. Seems like an error in how the page got set up. I guess one could upload three PDFs each with contact info for one reference?! Not very efficient, but will satisfy the system. (5) I'm sure it depends on how it is set up. i've had to submit a pdf with references and fill out the individual contact information into forms on interfolio for a single application and still the references were not contacted until later in the process. (6) Search Chair here: We do indeed only want the contact information at this point. Looking into setting up the interfolio to make that clearer. If you submit your application before then, adding the same file with three contacts three times would work to get the system to submit. [UPDATE: This is fixed now, you will only be asked to enter contact information for references -- SC] 7) @6 - Awesome, thank you SC! x43

X3 (2) They have already picked out their hire? Just speculating. 3) I don't think they are noticeably more specific than US jobs. This university has an advanced facility for avian research with a wind tunnel, so the topic for this particular search is pretty clearly aligned with that resource. X2 4) They recently created the Center for Animals on the Move (CAM), further aligning the position with this resource. 5) Canada Research Chairs are often quite specific, no? I don't think it's true of Canadian jobs in general 6) People on here are so quick to suggest an internal hire with virtually no evidence. Just apply to the job if you want the job. Being an internal candidate is often a disadvantage (7) The specifificity of Cdn jobs matches my experience as a broadly-trained ecologist restricted to working in Canada.

SC) we are a high tier R2 actively pursuing R1 status; new faculty are really well supported (1-1 teaching load, low service, competitive startups).

Does the department or the university have any solutions for the issues caused by the recent Texas senate bills? x2 SC) this is a complicated question, but in regards to the search: We are a diverse faculty that serves a majority-minority student body (HSI). We hope that qualified candidates will address their “fit” with not only the research we perform but also the culture of our department, and how they will support our ongoing efforts to engage varied perspectives in the biological sciences. Also, it should be noted that the DEI bill does not impact scholarly/creative activities, student organizations, etc. SC) the website for the cluster hire is now live; it's role is to provide helpful insight regarding the search and application preparation:

Never understand the logic of this question. Searches fail all the time for mundane reasons. Top candidate dragged feet then declined and Dept was not allowed to make second offer, etc. Failed searches do not signify disfunction or malfeasance 4) I'm not @2, but basic curiosity seems like pretty obvious logic to me. x6. 5) I don't know if the search failed or not. I do know that they went through two rounds of in-person interviews last year, offered the job to people that went elsewhere, and did not offer it to the remainder. I know of people that had a bad experience last year and have still not heard anything back. 6) Here's a basic reason to want to know if a search failed: If I get this job will I have a colleague that started the year before that I can get some immediate mentorship from? 2 here) Curious because last year I didn't even get a zoom interview - and so I might not waste my time again (I know, I know, the pool is different). And if 5 is right, kudos to them for going back into the pool, but that seems to just reinforce my reasoning. 7) Many departments, if they make a new hire, publizice on websites, X (formerly twitter), etc, so not too difficult to determine if someone new has started 8) Search is a repeat, but refreshed in scope. All applications welcome. 9) at #9, is the scope refreshed enough that if we didn't make a zoom interview its legitimately worth reapplying? 10) @9 Yes, all applications welcome.3

Or does it go into teaching statement? Any experience with this type of submission doc with others? 5) Well it used to be an ocean. It does say Marine in the "broad sense". good luck 6) it is a surprisingly good program from what I've heard.

Also--I'll just say it here cuz I applied in the past, but they required a DEI statement but as far as I can tell nobody in their department has lifted a single finger on a DEI initiative--I searched the website for hours and found nothing. Makes writing this statement a huge burden. (10) To SC member - can you share any info about the SC's feeling towards pre-tenure assistant professors vs straight outta postdoc applicants, if there was any discussion about that?

(14) @11, can you share why you think a school like this would favor a pre-tenure asst prof over a postdoc?

This seems more broadly defined here than in the Stony Brook job below. 2) Sounds like all EEB, so yes, very broad. 3) Yes, this is a broad search in terms of research focus, but note the emphasis on mentoring 4) is the "mentoring statement" and emphasis on mentoring basically a way to get around the TX DEI ban? I'm thinking about interpreting it as so 5) @4 - yes. 6). This was a failed search last year becuase I got an email saying "As a result of personal life changes", but unclear what were the reasons? It would be great if the SC can explain more here, thanks. (7) nice to see UT can still swing a DEI search with the political climate of texas. kudos to cmte for passing the GOP smell test x2 8) It really isn't that hard to do, and it's often part of grant writing. Global Warming -> Climate Change; DEI -> Mentorship and Student success. 9) @6 I don't understand - you applied for this job previously and got that email? 10) This is a new search, not a failed search from a previous year 11) Does this job have different tenure requirements? Or is this just a way to add more pre-tenure work to someone who shoulders a lot of mentorship/DEI burden? 12) I'm on the SC; @2 and @3 are correct, the search is broad in terms of research focus. @4 and @5 No, the emphasis on mentoring is meaningful, that said even though we are not allowed by law to use certain terms, the department is committed to a climate that includes everyone. @10 you are correct, this is not a failed search from a previous year. @11 college & department both value mentorship and yes, it is considered in T&P. 1

AP) If it's a permanent faculty job, that's OK. 2) It really is rough for those interested in teaching positions that such a high percentage of community college jobs want someone who can teach Human Anatomy. That said, I wouldn't mind seeing more *permanent* CC jobs here. Some CCs do have a tenure system and some even have opportunities for undergraduate research. 3) I totally get that people don't want to teach anatomy, but I genuinely think anyone with a life science phd is qualified to teach human anatomy. 4) Agreed, @3! A lot of paleontologists teach human anatomy!

Focus on evolution. 3) Someone told me it's unlikely to get past the rest of the department unless you have cellular mechanisms. That's unofficial but seems likely good advice 4) yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if specifically want people who can connect functional genetics with evolution. That's what the big papers from the department seem to be doing these days. 5) Any idea if a plant biology candidate would be competative? Seems most of the department studies other systems. 6) I hope so. I'm applying as a plant person. They just poached Moi Exposito-Alonso from Stanford, so I assume they're cool with plant science 7) that was a different dept... dont think any plant people in mcb 8) Noah Whiteman is in MCB and works on plant defense evolution 6) whoops. my bad. he's affiliated with the genomics institute though, and it looks like this position could be too 9) Salary range starting at 74k.

Because I've never seen a 3 person cluster hire in a regional PUI before. 3) It is a larger masters regional university that is trying to keep up with record enrollment (over 21k now). 4) Likely to be related to a new dept chair? Common for Sr hires to request cluster hires in their field during negotiation. 5) I know the areas of specialization are open, but can any SC members comment on whether the Molecular Biology focus should be on model species?
