Areas of specialization are broad. 2) 78k/year to work in NYC - Are they joking? 3) It's essentially a teaching postdoc or lecturer position. How much do you think it's going to pay? That salary is not that much lower than what a starting asst prof at CUNY or a lesser private uni (Pace, St Francis, etc) would make x2 4) "it's alright because other places also pay below a living wage" 5) Academia is a higher calling for the rich 6) NYC requires salary posting now, so at least you know ahead of time if you don't want to apply. 7) Question remains - what should this position pay? I really don't know. $100K? 8) ONE MILLION DOLLARSSSSSS (9) FYI - This is covered by the Barnard Contingent Faculty Union contract ... salary posted is contract minimum for 2024-24, rises to $82K min year 2, $85.5 min year 3, full benefits all 12 months but a 9 month job - eligible for various bells-whistles like internal grants; add summer teaching $12K per course (or spend summer elsewhere) 10) I'm all for salary shaming but even considering this is in NYC it is far far from the most ridiculous salaries posted on this board for a visiting position x3.

1/30/23 9:00Texas A&M UniversityTexasEcology & Conservation Biology2/15/2023 Asst ProfFixed Term2/1/23 7:52Faculty are hired as ACES Assistant Professors with the expectation of transitioning to tenure track (pending departmental review) by the end of the fellowship period. 1) Applicants have to be within 4 years after getting PhD. 2) #1 true, especially with it working like passing tenure twice. it's a scam to draw out tenure process. if you take it, don't assume anything. x13 3) No start up package, no students... I agree with @2 x2 4) this program is already coming under a lot of scrutiny; 5) Very much sounds like a scam x2 6) Isn't this basically the same as UC's and Michigan's Postdoc-to-Faculty programs? 7) on paper it appears similar. But, remember that California is a state with unions. Texas is right to work. Hence, latter places you at a serious disadvantage. Notice, many schools advertising assistant teaching professors have option to switch to tenure track. So, always ask. But that would be similar too. You are in limbo for 8-10 years instead of 6. 6) Yeah, seems like a better-than-average postdoc and a worse-than-average tenure-track position. AP) Link now works, updated deadline from Nov 30 to Feb 15. 7) Working link was taken down for several months then when put back up, the deadline is in 2 weeks. Is this an internal hire? 8) Moderator: this is not a scam or an internal hire. I don't understand the unsubstantiated negative comments. It is like if they were trying to discourage people to apply. A collegue suggested me to use this page to advertise this job, but I didn't know that it was going to be the target of unsupported attacks. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community and strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented groups or who have experience working with a broadly diverse student population to apply. AP) @8, VAP-to-TT appointments are new to many, so people will have questions. Thanks for clearing them up with your comments.

Presumably a few classes per semester... 2) "Applications should include... a research proposal in the style of an NSERC Discovery Grant (i.e., 5 pages maximum)". Seems like a lot to ask candidates to write a discovery grant before they even have an offer. Might also favour lateral moves. 3) That is an insane ask for a teaching-oriented position (or any position really)! What are they thinking? x3 4) This is absolutely absurd, and despite how desperate I am for a job in Canada I won't be submitting to this one. A primarily *teaching* position needing to write a discovery-style grant just for the job application? That is the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard in an application. I would be a LOT of money that this is a position designed for an internal hire, because what other possible function would this have except to literally discourage people from applying. Yeah, expecting overloaded post-docs to come up with a NSERC discovery grant proposal for a teaching position in less than a single month (ad was posted sometime in late January, deadline of the 23rd)? I think they have someone already in mind.

The Biology Department welcomes applicants who will help us achieve our goal to increase diversity (visible and invisible) of our faculty, staff, and students" (1) the fraction of searches that are DEI-focussed this year is out of control. Is there any other job like this outside of academia? [link fixed -AP] x4 2) woah. transcripts from all degree granting universities and 5 references? that's quite an application (2) what does this mean? All positions are subject to the availability of funds. (3) @1 lol. an "out of control" fraction! relax. x5 (4) Interesting that this search is DEI search when the state government is about to wipe out all publicly funded DEI initiative at state universities. 5) Not sure that welcoming applicants who may increase diversity is a "DEI search"...I would hope every search welcomes these types of applicants x3 6) in a normal world, yes, but Texas is not normal.

1/25/23 19:51The University of Texas - ArlingtonTexasBiology - Ecology 2/15/2023 ProfTenure Track2/1/23 8:30Seems like an internal hire since there is an NTT faculty profile on the faculty page with a lab website that describes the what research may be particularly attractive under essential duties section of the ad. 1) I hear this all the time - internal hires into TT lines are pretty rare - it's not a conspiracy! Plus, the same people complaining about internal hires would complain if they were the internal candidate and the institution hired "some unknown" from outside. At most institutions, especially in tight budget years, if a professor leaves or retires, the department is given a NTT line for a year while they try to get approval for a full search. So, of course there is a NTT faculty member with the same expertise as the job ad. Unless it is a new program, who else do you think is currently teaching the classes / doing the job that the department is looking to fill on a long-term basis? On average, the person who takes a VAP/adjunct position in spring/summer (in searches that are not typically very competitive) is not going to magically be the most qualified candidate for an international search the following September (when most TT jobs advertise) - they often haven't even started the 1yr job yet when the TT ad gets posted, so the idea that the TT ads are often written around the expertise of an internal candidate who has barely even started working in the department is laughable. There are of course exceptions, but don't assume that its a sham search just because they have a NTT faculty member currently in that role. 2) If you'd like ot work there apply...3) Looking at the NTT faculty lab webpage, he is already advertising for PhD students in the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters, not something a NTT lecturer can do. 4) Definitely feels like an internal hire given @3's comment and the specificity of the posting x3

In the past few years, I know of students taking 5-7 years for Master's degrees and many not finishing. OP again) When I said 3.5+ I was being generous. Sorry to hear things have not improved (or even gotten worse).

Load is 12 credits per semester, lab and lecture. A PhD is required. 1) Applications will be considered immediately, but no end date...? Can somebody from the SC weigh in? Sure! We need someone for Fall semester 2023, and we did not want to limit those who won't have a PhD in-hand until May 2) I think the question was about the review date for applications - presumably at some point the search committee will start meeting to discuss whatever applications they have gotten, so when is that? If you don't want to limit people with no PhD until May, just say "ABD allowed, as long as you have degree by May" in the ad. 3) I asked for clarification as 1 above. Thanks for the update, SC member! And yep, I was wondering about review timelines because it's useful to know as I plan application materials, etc. Either way, thanks for your response!

As in the faculty will have a research lab with graduate students? I just see the traditional MFAs etc programs listed on massart website. 8) Can anyone confirm faculty are eligible to apply for NSF funding here? 9) @6 Based on how the travel information is written (using the word travel and not moving and placing it in the job ad with the statement that no visa sponsorship is possible) it looks like they mean interview travel. No value judgment on Massart-- I commend them for being up front. 10) @9, confirmed from college that "MassArt does not provide: Reimbursement for travel" is in reference to moving, not interviews. Misleading wording indeed. No info on interview modality. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 11) Thanks @10. 12) Is there a search committee chair or contact information for this position?

Teaching field courses at UGAMI? "administration"? The ad is not clear. 3) How is this different from the Assistant Director for Academics job that was accepted last year? It sounds similar. @1 - Yes children and families can live on Sapelo at the housing (a house is provided with very reduced rent). @2 This job is primarily administrative with teaching as well. The person works closely with the director of the marine institute, plans, advertises and executes a spring semester for UGA students , and teaches an intensive field course in the summer. @3 This is the same job that was advertised last year. (4) Wasn't that job accepted last year? 5) @4 yes but the person left for another position (6) Is there any potential to publish research in this position? 7) @6 from my understanding you will have lab space and some funds, but with only 10% of your time dedicated to research, its very much not the priority. However, you have the marsh and research facilities right there, so its very close/easy to get things done. 2

Are you expected to be a super postdoc or you become one once you get a position? 3) I think that 1 means that this is the European system in which you work as a junior group leader under a senior prof, and slowly build your lab and group up over time. 4) No, this is a tenure-track assistant prof position. First located at the SciLifeLab and then after tenure (associate prof) you'd move to the main campus in the Zoology Dept. While at the SciLifeLab the lab gets lots of funding from the program, however once you get to Zoology that's done. In that sense, you're a super-funded early career researcher. I hope this helps! 1) very helpful, thank you @3! 5) Yes, this kind of position in Sweden is analgous to a US tenure-track assistant prof. position (and not within another group). That said, note that "an applicant should be considered who has received such a degree no more than five years before the deadline for applications. However, an applicant who has received such a degree earlier may be considered under special circumstances." This 5 year limit is typical in Sweden. 2) "Truly enjoying" very custom format of documents, also many of them are not applicable to many places (eg. docent qualification, what?)(3) Recieved an invitation to apply for this by email saying I was a strong candidate +2 2) very curious how many strong candidates are there,9) they sent that invitation to several people..

Preference will be given to candidates whose research evaluates how organisms adapt to changing environments and applies integrative approaches to assess how eco-physiological processes, eco-evolutionary dynamics, population dynamics, or interspecific interactions (e.g., host-parasite, host-microbe, predator-prey, disease dynamics) are affected by environmental change."

It would be nice if some of these were TT though. 2) insitutions realize they can teach more students for less money by hiring teaching track faculty. 3) Letters requested (gis position) 1/291

1/11/23 14:54Cleveland Museum of Natural HistoryOhioOrnithology1/1/2023 to Asst CuratorPermanent Non-TT2/3/23 14:47Looking to hire an ABD doctoral student to support through the end of their PhD, a 1 year postdoc & then transition into the Endowed Assistant Curator of Ornithology (permanent academic position, same rank as Assistant Professor). Opportunity for cross appointment with Case Western Reserve University. Looking for a candidate motivated to conduct collections-based research within the context of a Natural History Museum. Study area open, but broadly interested in biodiversity, urban environments, evolution, migration, and/or enviromental change. Rolling deadline but applications are already being reviewed. 2) I'm not sure what to make of this. Have they had recruitment problems? It seems very strange to completely limit pool of applicants to only ABD, rather than just structure a hire such that candidates without postdoc exp will have 2 years at a prelim/temp/lower level or something. 3) It does seem like a weird point, maybe they want to train someone on the cheap? But this is probably perfect position for the right person. I did my undergraduate degree in Cleveland and it's a great city and CMNH is a really good musem with lots of research and conservation going on. x2

1/4/23 7:34University of BathUnited KingdomTheoretical or Empirical Studies in Evolution1/29/2023 Term2/3/23 5:35"strong expectation to transition to permanent Lectureship after two years" 1) What's the likelihood this will go to a non-Brit needing a visa? 2) @1 ad says "This role is sponsorable" so non-Brit possible; 3) Fellow international hire in the UK, our uni hires loads of non-Brits. They typically pay the visa fee but it's the applicant's responsibility to pay the NHS surcharge (~£3,000) 4) Is that charge mandatory? Seems like it would be a deal-breaker for almost anyone. How many ECRs have £3,000 laying around? 5) I just found that Bath offers interest-free loans to help with that and other fees 6) You can try to negotiate to have both the application fee and surcharge covered when you're offered the position. My uni ended up reimbursing the surcharge cost- it is a mandatory part of the visa application process (seems expensive but you do receive free healthcare and prescriptions in the UK). You also have to pay it a second time at the 5 year mark when you apply for indefinite leave to remain (permanent residency). The UK has the most expensive visa system in the world. Manageable if it's just you, but very unaffordable for a family. 6) So this means is a 6,000 cost when traveling with the spouse? 8) Keep in mind that Bath also isn't cheap. 9) "1 referee must be your present or previous employer". I have an independent position (no PI), so does that mean my dept chair? Kind of awkward to ask my chair to help me leave my current job 10) it sounds like you can ask your previous employer rather than your present one if you prefer 11) you likely will not be eligable for many of the fellowships they intend the fellow to apply for if you are already at a group leader level. I would suggest you speak with the chair to check. 12) Couldn't find info about research funds associated with the position. Does anyone know? 13) Re: 6), yes you'll need to pay the application fee and surcharge for your spouse, I don't know of any UK uni that covers this cost for spouse or dependents. It was about $7,000 for me all-in (luckily my spouse is a dual UK citizen so we didn't have to pay that for him, only me). 14) Received update on Feb. 3 that they "expect to send invitations to stage 2 of the process (submission of a two-page research proposal) by the end of next week. The deadline for proposals will be extended to Thursday 16 February, and we plan to hold interviews on Friday 3 March."5
1/3/23 13:50UC BerkeleyCaliforniaConservation Science2/2/2023 ProfTenure Track2/3/23 8:581) Huh, no cover letter necessary. That's neat. 2) I would email the seach chair or department head to confirm that 3) Yeah. Just kind of goes with any job app anywhere in any field. 4) I suggest you include a cover letter anyways -- maybe a shorter one, but do not send only the package without the cover letter even if not formally required.5) There appears to be no opportunity to submit an additional file for the cover letter or a contact. 6)FWIW, I submitted a cover letter & CV combo for another job that erroneously didn't have a space for a cover letter. It was an admin mistake. 7) Emailed the Department Manager and no cover letter is needed. 8) Oops, well I put a 1 page cover letter attached the the cv x3. 9) Do you think our applications will be scored down if we include a cover letter? 10) no, I'm sure they will just overlook the CL and see if the other stuff can speak for itself. strange though that they would not ask for a letter. why is that? x2 11) @10 they said that the can get all the information that is normally in the cover letter from the other documents. Also, agree that if you did include a cover letter is not likely to impact your application. Good luck all.21
