But it's a toxic environment in this dept, HK has its own issues politically, expectations to get tenure are Nature and Science papers. I'd think very carefully before making a move.4). Following on 3), do not apply, department is toxic-these positions are being advertised because people are leaving and others expected not to get tenure. 5) What is the salary for the Assistant and for the Associate positions? Folks here say 'high', but is there a number? 6) the numbers on glassdoor are correct. But there is no amount high enough to justify the toxicity and the damage taking one of these positions would do to your career. Do yourself a huge favor and *stay away*. 7) Can somebody post the salary? 4) (again) salary will vary based on the position, HK has high salaries so it will be higher than comparable jobs elsewhere. As 3 and 7 note- avoid it, it's seriously not worth it and these positions are only being advertised because they know people will leave, and many of the hires since 2019 have or will leave. Suggest reaching out to current staff (especially more junior staff) if you are considering applying- you should also likely read these for HK as a whole and for HKU other HK universities are getting enquiries from this department in particular about moving within HK for those with families who can't easily leave Hong Kong.1

If you look at the linked collective agreement, it is clearly laid out, depending on experience -- probably off by a couple thousand since it is through 2022 though.

Cover letter is almost always optional; probably good to have one, but no knowing if it has any impact. I've been told from people in other agencies cover letters are meaningless. You should always upload all transcripts. There might be questions to answer in the application but you have to just start working through it. 4) This one doesn't seem to have any substantial extra questions (you can preview them). I can't tell if there is even a place where you could upload a cover letter if you wanted to. Would you just attach it in the same file as the resume? 5) if you make it all the way to the end where the upload documents option usually is and there is no space for cover letter or other documents, you can just combine it and your PDF resume and upload it in the resume area

They just pulled this search a few weeks back, now a new one that is basically the same? We will have to re-apply, so lame. 1) first post was for a curator of Ichthyology and for a curator of Herpetology, this one is combind into one posetion, kind of a big difference. 2) ooooor one of the people they were going to hire was shopping around for other offers and negotiated this change. This is like the 3rd curatororial-related hire post from them with a short deadline just this Spring. There is definitely something odd afoot. 3) Smells fishy 4) seems like the downside of requiring public advertisements. As much as folks here hate the idea of an internal hire, sometimes if they have worked there for years it makes a lot of sense. Then when they negotiate final title or have a funding change...they have to publicly post some weirdness like this. 5) @2-4: You might be right, and there is a guy there who is a good candidate for this job but that doesn't mean he is applying. I would just apply and not worry about it. Seems like a good place to work. 6) @5 what? academic job searchers shouldn't be suspicious? hahahahahahahah! I agree with you though.

So because I already live and work in Ohio, I can't apply? Wtf? (2) seems perhaps not very legal... 3) I love that the 'Ohio Eminent Scholar of Ecology' cannot be a current Ohioan. (4) sounds like a weirdo philanthropic requirement, like "must bring talent to ohio" 5) yes to what 4 says. Sometimes there are pots of money attached to these lines that have recruitment stipulation 6) There are Ohio Eminent Scholars in a variety of disciplines across Ohio's public universities. These positions were partially endowed by the state to help attract faculty from elsewhere. 7) I wonder what the endowment offers. 8) That is up for negotiation, previously that has included reduced teaching load, research funds, and other stuff.

If you’re a fit apply! 5) would someone who works on tropical amphibians but not in the neotropics be considered a fit? 6) @5 yes, if the person can/wants to incorporate neotropical amphibians into their work encouraged to apply 7) Is there a specific reason why there is an emphasis on the neotropics? 8) @7 lots of initiatives at the Field have to do with the Neotropics so I have gotten the sense they like to synergize on trips and things that way. 9) the ad says this is a joint hire with the museum's action conservation center which works a lot in the Neotropics specifically. 10) did Sara leave or are they expanding to another herp curator? They had mutiple back in the day, but then were down to 0 for a while... 11) Sara works mainly with reptiles, this is an amphibians job. Honesly it is refreshing to see institutions separate amphibians from non-avian reptiles 12) @10 Sara is the search chair for this hire 13) worth noting the Field Museum has been doing a lot of hires in the last several years and has added 6 or 7 new curators so this seems like continuing that trend3

This is the dream! (minus... everything already said above) 7) It also says that a masters or PhD is a "desired" qualification, but not a requirment which is a bit unexpected for a college but may explain the salary range a little bit. 8) Just a few years ago. 9) Is the salary range for real? x2 10) yes. It's a low cost of living area and you don't need a PhD for the position. 11) Not that low. 12) There is a tab for non ts academic jobs and it is not this tab. 13) No, this is the right spot. It is not designed for short term. Personally, if its not tenure track, its not permanent.

Re postdoc question - yes you can apply if you have a few years under your belt and some high IF papers or *big* grants (it is always worth applying), but UZH often hire really senior (the last hire I saw in this department was open rank and it went to two of the highest cited researchers in the world but recent hires in other departments have been people at group leader level) so temper your expectations. - FYI: The department is pure chaos and I agree that the job is for someone senior.

Lab Director supports research in some or all of these areas of microbiology, cell culturing, next generation sequencing of environmental samples, advanced microscopy. Send resume and cover letter to Assistant Principal Yaara Crane at 1) This is one of the top high schools in the nation, but isn't the typical job post for this board. Does the applicant need a degree in education? (I can't get the job post to load.) - A degree in education is not necessary for initial hire, but is generally needed within 3 years. The school has facilities that rival a small university and the position truly requires someone with research experience to be successful. Feel free to email Yaara Crane for additional details if you're interested. The salary and benefits are more competitive than most starting positions at the university level, particularly if you have some teaching experience coming in. 2) Did the sight of this post cause anyone else to seriously reconsider the value of a PhD in today's market? Maybe that's just me. 3) The pay doesn't make me like the idea of teaching 14-18 year olds any better. 4) My high school had (and still has) many PhD's teaching and it's been that way since the 80's and possibly longer. It only represents other's career choices, not the "value" of your degree. I thought we were beyond poo-pooing other's careers. 2) again. I apologize if my comment came off as poo-pooing others' careers. I don't intend to judge. But the opportunity cost of a PhD is high, and I wish there were more routes to bring good scientists into k-12 education without spending years gaining specialized research skills in a PhD program. Perhaps we need more D.A. degree programs (and wider recognition of the D.A. track).

There's multiple jobs including "choose your own adventure scientist" and "open scientist" so seems like they're generally expanding and looking for people-but the focus seems largely on the biomedical side 8) This a science-based, for-profit, start-up company that is part of the highly competetive Silicon Valley world that is looking for scientists whose research and discoveries have a clear practical and profitable end-point

3/1/24 7:58University of ManitobaCanadaQuantitative Biologist in Ecosystem Resilience4/22/2024 ProfTenure Stream4/6/24 8:511) We're a fun, collegial department with lots of recent hires. I'm on the search committee and am happy to try to answer questions 2) Do theoretical approaches to biomedical applications fit this call? 3) What's the teaching load? 4) 1 from above here. @2 no, biomedical would not fit @3 typical teaching is 1 course in fall and 1 in winter.5) Do you hire non citizens and provide visa sponsorship? 6) @5 yes 7) Do population geneticists and evolutionary biologists focused on the impact of anthrogoenic activities fit in the call? 8) @7 yes for sure I'd say. genetic diversity is important for population resilience so make sure to frame it in that light@5) I applied and immediately received an email and a link which asked about my citizenship, and they stated that Canadians would be highly prioritized! So it seems that there is no chance for non-Canadians! 9) Every job at a canadian university asked about citizenship, there is a thread in general discussion on the topic I believe. These jobs often go to non-canadians. 10) search committee member from comment 1 again. 9 is spot on. We hire candidates we think are best fit and give everyone an equal evaluation. Eyeballing our website 4 of our last 7 hires were non-canadians with lots of other internationals in the department. I have never been on a search committee where nationality was even mentioned. 11) What does this title mean? Seems like a lot of jargon -- looking for an ecosystem ecologist or a biologist? 12) the search committee member from above here again. with apologies I'm not completely sure what is jargony but would be happy to try to clarify if you give more details. I think we thought biologist was all encompassing. we would certainly consider an ecologist a biologist. there are many ways to tackle ecosystem resiliance scaling from genetics to communities and beyond. I think we hoped biologist would cast the widest net. @SC, thanks for answering so many questions from folks here. My research addresses the resilience of coral reef ecosystems through reproductive biology. Some non-coastal departments shy away from reef research, would your department be interested? 13) @reef researcher... no problem happy to try to help! There is no regional preference for research subject in this particular search so I'd go ahead and apply if you are interested. We've got folks that work on marine fishes, mammals, birds, and inverts (and we've got a coast to the north! :) ). The central/Arctic DFO research group is also on campus.

Please apply if interested. 2) I've never heard of this school. Anyone has any impressions? 2) very heavy teaching load 7 courses. 3) posting says adjunct not tenure track? 4) and not open rank - moderator pinging. 1 again) the adjunct is a mistake, I will let the person who posted it know, please read the listing, which reads tenure under the job details section, or see the Mercer internal posting, at 2, this is a private university in georgia that is a PUI AP) There is no mention of rank in the ad, so presumably open? @1 1 again) yes, i believe it is open, probably more in line with an assistant prof, but this position is replacing a recent retiree who was at the professor level, 5) Former graduate of Mercer, amazing school with two campuses. This position says it is not on the main campus but on the Atlanta campus, which is new and lacks the old-university feel. 6) Love me an old-university feel 7) Anyone have more details about what they're aiming for with this position given that it's open-rank and at the Atlanta campus? I assume the standard mix of teaching, discipline-specific research, and service that would be typical of a PUI. Or is there something different or more specific that the department is looking for? 1 again) they want someone who is committed or would be committed to non-traditional learners, our college at Mercer focuses on adult learners, we do a lot of online and blended delivery of instruction, evening classes, with undergrad experiences being important across Mercer for both traditional and non-traditional learners. The ATL campus is the grad campus, it is where the Colleges of Nursing and Pharmacy are located, compared to the tradiational undergrad campus in Macon. 7 again) Thanks for the additional info!

The standard FTE will be closer to the lower end of the spectrum for new hires with no counter offer. 4) it is because open rank. the top of the range is for full only 5) Finally, a job ad that includes a salary range! 6) Note that there is off-scale salary. No assistant professor at UCLA would make the low end of the posted salary range. For more information, you can check "How do UC salaries work?" on the General Discussion tab. 7) why is this here? that department is problematic :/ 8) why is the department problematic? Do you guys think that this is more like a senior position or fresh postdocs should try too? 9) @8 it says rank open, so just apply 10) Apply for sure but I'd be pretty surprised if it went to a fresh postdoc. Good curator jobs are pretty rare. 10) @9 and @10 yes, I thought the same... I'd love a curator job!! Ps.: just sent an inquire, they asked: "The job ad is open rank, meaning that we will consider all candidates equally and will assess their application according to their current position. It is indeed exciting that we got the search approved as open rank for an endowed chair." 11) Not really a "vertebrate biology" -- focus on mammalogy and/or ornithology, herpetologist won't likely be considered (my guess, not based on internal knowledge). 12) Invited for Zoom interview 4/10/24 (x2)3

Under what circumstances did they fire TT faculty? 5) I saw that when they almost closed they got a new president who restructured the whole uni and got rid of about half the majors and made it more STEM focused- was it that when they fired TT, or another instance? 6) Weren't they just hiring for like the same position last year or the year before?

I can't find any information about other staff scientists or publications, etc. It seems like they want this position to do research but I can't tell if there is really infrastructure for that. 2) where can I find job postings like this? eg indeed? linkedin? I'm looking for more places to look. 3) I don't think there are very many postings like this. 4) I worked for the AMC for years in their high mountain hut system, this is indeed a very new direction for them. Lab infastructure at Pinkham Notch will be limited but it is located at the base of mount washington. Also the 8 AMC high huts nestled across the white mountains could serve as lauching off points for field work. Sounds like a great opportunity. 5) When is the start date? 6) "the terrestrial ecologist" ... are they going to be looking for a freshwater person? 7) Similalry interested to know if they would consider an animal ecologist. 8) Why would terrestrial make you think freshwater? Seems like most of the monitoring is spatial, trees, climate. I'd guess an animal person would need to be much more remote sensing/monitoring focused than organismal/experimental but its an unusual job so who knows. 9) the way the ad is worded makes it sound like they might (someday) to have an ecologist that isn't terrestrial (not this ad) 10) they do have an ecologist there who does a fair amount of aquatic research 11) anybody hear anything? also, Q for #10 - how do you know this?

2/12/24 16:06Springer Nature GroupNew YorkNature Communications (Ecology & Evolution) 3/15/2024 / Senior EditorIndustry3/20/24 11:13time to revenge (1) Lol x4 (2) Salary is... not good... for NYC. 3) I don't get why jobs like this aren't fully remote. I'd consider applying if so, but yeah I'm not even going to pretend one could live in or even near NYC for that salary. 4) echo this. ~5000 $/article and they publish > 10k/year, let alone their other OA journals in the portfolio. how can they offer such a low salary? 5) That's enough to live in the burbs and train into the city, but would expect more from Springer for sure 6) I am editor in chief of a journal related to this field, wildlife ecology. I applied but I am not a US citizen, I am Asian, hope they support visa issues 7) @3, considering the city's median househeold income is ~$75k, it must be possible. 8) @7 standard of living that someone who put in the years to get a PhD expects vs. possible are two VERY different things. Sure maybe it's "possible" to live on this with roommates and scraping by, but after spending ~10 years working on your degrees do you want to continue living like a poor college student? 9) @7 that median is also skewed by families who have lived in the city either in rent controlled or long-ago purchased apartments. The current median 2br in NYC is $60k/yr. That is more than $75k/yr nets. 10) Do y'all know about the 40x rule? In NYC, to sign a lease, your annual salary must be AT LEAST 40x the monthly rent. 74,000/40 = $1850. It's near impossible to get even a studio that cheap. 11) Guess what: the ad says this is a base rate. offer could be more. I'd bet you all are qualified to receive a higher offer and you won't have to live like the common folk. 12) Well 91,000/40 = 2275. Not going to go very far unless you move to deep Queens or NJ. 13) Pathetic that NPG, a company with some of the highest profit margins on earth, offers such a paltry salary. 14) @13 they wouldn't have those beastly margins if they paid their workers :P 15) How many commenters here have actually lived in NYC? One can live just fine as a postdoc or starting prof at CUNY making somewhere between $75K-95K (and how do you think grad students make it on $35K / year or less). You won't be living in the fanciest neighborhoods but can still be a good life. Whether that salary is worth it to work for a for-profit publishing company is another matter altogether. x3 16) yeah it ain't gonna be Friends, and will be a 50 minute commute on the subway to midtown. 17) Good luck paying for daycare on that salary 18) Incidentally, I am pretty sure Springer Nature's NYC office is downtown (like...way downtown, Battery Park area). Opens up more of Brooklyn, but nearby are mostly the expensive areas anyways. Midtown might have been better because some of the 7 line is still affordable. 19) I love how there is always someone legitimizing low salaries ("that's more than you can make at job X", "you can live just fine"). That is the reason why academics keep being exploited, we settle for so little and accept to live "just fine". It's depressing! x4 20) I once interviewed for one of these positions at a different nature journal and ended up pulling out because of the salary. They also wanted you to review three manuscripts as part of the interview process just to get to the 2nd round. That amount of unpaid work to even interview, for such a low-paying job, is just kinda exploitative. I make more now at a nonselective PUI! x2 21) yikes 22) Yeah, getting the "I slept on my lab floor for two years and was fine" vibes. They are asking for a "senior" position that pays under six figures for NYC. Truly insulting. Also like the "ediitorial experience is not required"…and you wonder why so much bad writing ends up in journals these days. @19) We live in the world as it is. One can work to change it long-term, but reality doesn't change because we wish it so. 23) I wonder if they got paid more if they'd be happier and more likely to accept the papers I send them. 24) Imagine working for such a low wage when your job is to extort gullable researchers into paying 1/10 of your annual salary to publish a PDF online. 25) flagged cause this conversation is off topic and annoying x1 -1 26) @25 then just...don't read this post. Pretty simple. x7 25) if I could unread it, I would. I was hoping to save others the trouble lol. 27) INCREDIBLE - even Nature's editors get screwed! 26) As a recent rejection from one of these positions, I was told they are mainly filled by internal candidates. x 2 27) I would like to ask whether they are willing to sponsor a work visa for non-US citizens. Does anyone know how to inquire about it? I don't see any contact info on the job ad. 28) They have sponsored H1Bs before for editors. 27) again. Thanks @28. @26 who can become internal candidates? Is that the place to start to become a paid editor for a Nature journal? On this ad, there is no contact info to inquire about the position. Does it imply that they already have plenty internal candidates? I would imagine that foregin nationals would be interested in this position and would like to know about immigration situations, but they don't seem to give an option to ask questions. Is this a bad sign? 28) non-internal candidate here, got "desk" rejected for this one job this week! 29) I applied the day it was open, and haven't heard anything yet. I did have an HR interview for a different position (Journal of Communications Biology) last week and am waiting to hear. On the website there is currently a listing for a "Locum" editor for Nature Ecology and Evolution, which is a fixed term position, although it doesn't say for how long. Could be a way to get a foot in the door and become an internal candidate in the future. 30) rejection, no interview 03/18, 27) same, rejection 3/18. I applied on 3/10. @29 may I ask what background you have? I wish to know what they are looking for. I have been an associate editor for one of the Wiley journals (no pay) for more than three years. I feel my work is appreciated by the journal and authors. I really like the job and put serious efforts. I am not a native English speaker, so I suspect that it is the problem. @29, did you apply for the Communication Biology position or did they interview you for the position because you applied for the Nature Communication position? 29) I have a marine biology/neurophysiology/ ecology background from my PhD and I am a current postdoc, but no editor experience-although I am a native English speaker. I would have thought that would have put you ahead for sure to have editor experience @30. I applied to multiple editor positions (and have been rejected from a few other ones), and applied seperately to communications biology. As of 3/20, no word from Nature Communications which is still listed as in review on the portal, or follow up from HR interview from Communications Bio.3

AP) Seems blurry but ok; 3) Sounds like B.S. you would be a full time Lecturer with a fancy title. As a recurrent lecturer you will gain priviledges and secure your teaching units (= security) but no salary bumps (e..g, Asst - Assct, etc). Weird. 4) Lecturers in the UC System have automatic renewal after 6(?) years of good performance. It's not considered tenure track in the legal sense, and lecturers don't have a vote on some items at faculty meetings. They could be laid off in a budget crisis but I've never seen it actually happen. Layoffs have rules like it has to go in reverse seniority. I don't know all the rules myself, but effectively it turns inot a permanent job much like TT faculty. The UC has documentaiton and procdures you used to be able to find at the system office. Treat it like a permanent job for teaching. x4 5.) Is it normal to ask for a research statement (including future research???) for a teaching-only position? 6) Some institutions have just-cause status for lecturers after a certain number of years, where your position can't be cut (and you can get sabbaticals, too). There are periodic assessments and you can get raises. So there is some permanency. 7) Is this position a direct result of UCLA suspending one prominent ecology-evolutionary biology faculty? (8) No if I had to guess it might be a targetted hire. 9) UC employee here. I am not on the SC but I am 100% confident that this entry was incorrectly labeled and I will flag this for modification. The "lecturer with potential security of employment (LPSOE)" designation in the UC system is identical to a tenure-track "research" faculty position, but with a teaching focus. They are both senate faculty. They are not lecturers. This is a tenure-track position. x1 10) LPSOE is not tenure track in the UC system. They are senate faculty but they are not tenure eligible. The security of employment is great (these are good positions), but it doesn't have the same protections as tenure. 11) A research statement is required including future research. Is this supposed to be geared towards inclusive teaching and montoring research mentioned in the job post? There's no formal research component to the position that I can see 12) My experience is that in LPSOE hires, the committee wants someone with a strong research background. Might be why they are asking for a research statement. 13) Invited for initial Zoom interview 3/26 x34

Salary is really high to be entry level, so are they looking to get an assoc prof? 3) I don't think this is necessarily looking for a science person so much as a business person who can run a nonprofit. There can be overlap though 4) The high salary may reflect the astronomical real estate prices more than anything. 5) the current ED is David Inouye, who is very much a science person. I don't have inside information, but I assume they're looking for an assoc prof. 6) Current ED is Ian Billick 7) Billick has been ED for 24 years, and has a PhD - for reference. It is strange that the job call doesn't include more info on qualifications. 8) deadline was actually 3/29 on ad, not 3/15.1
