9/21/23 11:51Texas State UniversityTexasMicrobiology11/6/2023 / Assoc ProfTenure Stream9/22/23 13:50SC member here- this is a cluster hire of three positions (Microbial Functional Genomics, Microbial Ecology, and Molecular Microbiology); will monitor here for questions! 1) What is the department and the university like? 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). Department has a wide diversity of researchers across subfields! 2) I did my PhD in this department, and LOVED my time there. If I were a fit for this hire, I wouldn't hesitate to apply (state politics aside...). 3) @SC member. 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.

Happy to anwser questions! 2) Is it evolutionary-focused? or also considering moleucular stuffs? 3) definitely evolutionary-focused; molecular stuff is welcome 4) is it really an open position? The ad looks like maybe tailored for an internal candidate? 5) agree w/ 4. This looks like they have someone in mind. 6) I've only seen transcripts requested for R01 positions if they are trying to tailor the posting, but maybe I am wrong. Transcript requests seem rare and odd 7) transcripts are normal for Cornell, unfortunately. 7) SC member here - @4 and @5 there is NO internal candidate 5) @7 thank you for clarifying! That's great to hear!
9/21/23 6:03University of Massachusetts AmherstMassachusettsWildlife Ecology11/1/2023 ProfTenure Stream9/21/23 10:161) SC Member here, I am happy to answer questions as they arise! 2) What is the salary range? 3) @1 Does your department's definition of wildlife include plants, or are you looking for a candidate that focuses on animals? x2 4) The same question as #3. Can a microbial ecologist that works with land-use/climate change apply? @3 and @4: "While taxonomic expertise is not restricted, the ideal candidate will have experience working with terrestrial vertebrates".

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. 2

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. They travel for field work. 7) Hmm, as I was hunting for information on people's research, I realized that the programs mentioned above are in the School of Ocean Futures, but this job is in The School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences... 8) Yes, I can confirm this isn't associated with the new School of Ocean Futures or BIOS, which are associated with the main (Tempe) campus. This position is on the West campus in Glendale. 9) @4, agreed. Unsure.

But seriously such a narrow search. Surprisingly so for a UC. 6) My guess is it's a replacement for retirement and has money earmarked specifically for ducks. There is a lot of waterfowl research support in WFCB with connections to long running projects and an endowed chair connected to it who I think recently retired. 7) person 6 is correct; I know the retiree.

First-year teaching load is 1/2, and you can reduce your teaching load for the next years by securing some internal or external grants. AP) Extended deadline on advice of SC.

(1) Probably 2) Looks like rolling application consideration. Not necessarily short. It would be helpful if an SC member could confirm. (3) wasnt there a similar job post a few years ago? Did that search fail? (4) Yes, that search failed. (5) SC member here. Evaluation of applications will actually begin OCTOBER 6--it took a bit longer than usual to get this posted becasue of new NY laws to post salary range. 6) Thanks SC! x3. 7) Shouldn't this new deadline be updated on the job posting? 8) already 3 applied dang it is going to be a popular one. anyone know about the salary? seems low for NYC but some bay area ones have discussion about the range not being a real range, same here? (8) Should the app be addressed to anyone in particular? 9) this was a listing last year for the same job IIRC. 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? (11) @10 All schools like this will favor pre-tenure asst profs no matter what they say in response. (12) 10 here - not necessarily, they can be harder to convince to move depending on the situation 13) @10, I would guess Columbia is in a position both in prestige and location that they don't worry to much about having to convince applicants to move to them. (14) @11, can you share why you think a school like this would favor a pre-tenure asst prof over a postdoc? (15) I think they probably worry - area is expensive, crowded, and salary is potentially meh. someone with a TT spot in a smaller town might ask for a lot of resources (personal and professional) to make the jump.8

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.

Vision statement = research statement. BI statement = DEI statement. Having 3 published papers to attach as reprints should be easy. Cover letter and CV are standard job packet components. x2 4) I like the vision statement (despite the cheesy name). The instructions are very clear about what that document should contain, moreso than for most research statements.x3 5) Have to agree. Sometimes the top tier schools are pretty agregious but this seems like a fancy way of describing the standard materials. 6) That vision statement request is pretty different from nearly every research statement I've read x2 7) I guess this answers the question from the Venting Tab, "Who determines the standard?" 8) Is this worth applying to for folks who study evolution? 9) In their last round, lots of people were notified as 'tier 1' applicants who then somehow were not interviewed - is there any point in re-applying, or does this mean that those folks simply did not meet the search criteria and should let it go? 10) How many is "lots of people"? From the message I saw, it read as if there were only ~10.. 11) @9, if the last search had a different focus, worth reapplying. Also worth reaching out the SC if you made the long list but weren't called to see if you fit for this search. (like x1) 12) Is this worth applying if i dont have a CNS paper? 13) @12 tbh no, look at who got hired last time and make your decision that way. 14) CNS isn't required, but a previous stint at an Ivy, specifically Harvard, definitely helps. 15) It's an open rank position. They may be hiring someone with tenure, so I think it's reasonable for them to ask for a little more in the way of an application. 16) GREAT department. Lofty goals, but the support and community to enable it. 17) anyone know the geographic area? whats it like living there? 18) I was a grad student at Princeton and found it to be a really nice place to live. Lots of convenient amenities on Route 1, but also a lot of nice ruralish green space. ~1 hour from both Philadelphia and New York. Some faculty lived in Princeton proper, others a bit further away in other townships. Seems like a nice place to have a family, but students/postdocs/faculty who were more into big city settings found it a bit quiet. 18) close to the ocean too (45 mins). 19) For those interested, there will be a Q&A webinar hosted by the search committee on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, at 12 PM EDT - no registration required.1

Does it make sense for marine folks to apply? There don't appear to be any marine focused faculty, so I may have answered my own question... 2) faculty member at AL here...research at AL emphasizes terrestrial / freshwater environments, but some faculty do cross over into marine systems (though probably not much beyond estuaries). Several faculty collaborate with our marine colleages at other UMCES labs. It is a great place to work. 1) @2 - Thank you! If I apply I will do so understanding that my work my be at the periphery of AL's focus.

Develop predictive models that cross scales from molecular to ecosystem. 1) Is this not for assistant professor level? 2) @1 "tenured faculty position... at the associate to full professor level" 3) realy hope they consider AP as well, which i think i might be a very good fit.

9/8/23 10:35California State University San MarcosCaliforniaBiology (Physiology)10/1/2023 ProfTenure Stream9/13/23 10:46Does anyone know anything about this search? Looking at their faculty page, this department already has two physiologists. Are they really looking for a third physiologist? 2) Does plant physiology count or is this an animal-focused search? 3) Department member here: the department has 5 physiologists and is replacing a recently retired physiologist. We are seeking a physiologist that is able to teach our core physiology course which is Comparative Animal Physiology (lecture and lab), but the area of research is flexible as long as the candidate can develop upper division electives in their area of expertise.

(1) Wow, both searches failed at UBC last yr? x3 (2) What's the salary range? 3) any insights into why the search failed last year? 4) Is it true they heavily favor Canadian applicants? 5) No @4, it's not true. They're "supposed to", but it's not enforced in any practical sense. Apply if you want the job! 6) SC member here. We encourage applicants to read through the educational leadership criteria linked in the ad, and encourage applicants of all nationalities to apply. 7) Hi SC member. What's the salary range? 8) expected starting 12-mo salary is $105,000 8) why doesn'tt the 12-mo salary align with research-oriented assistant professors in the department? (9) @8, The position doesn't require a Ph.D., so the qualifications and training time are significantly less than the research-oriented assistant professors.

So Oct. 16 as mentioned above sounds reasonable. 4) The deadline is now in the job ad: "Our review of applicants will begin on October 16, 2023." Admin, can you please add the review date?

Do we need completed letters to apply, or just provide references? It seems like the latter based on looking at the application. Any SC members on here to answer? Thanks! 2) Please stop asking for letters of recommendation at the application stage. It's such a waste of time for anyone that isn't among the 10-15 people chosen for initial interviews. Committees need to stop putting convenience (or whatever justification) before being considerate to potential candidates.

SC member if you're seeing this, please don't trash my application! I promise I'll obtain the undedgrad transcript if I get shortlisted! 2) Is it common for an institution to ask for your undergrad transcript when applying for a faculty position? 3) Not common, but I've definitely seen it.
