4/18/23 15:08Lees-McRae CollegeNorth CarolinaWildlife Ecology ProfTenure Track5/28/23 14:16Yet 2 more (3 if you count the bio one below on the site) from this college. There's been a lot from this school for how small it is in the past few years 2) This seems to be the same ad that was posted in October just with the specialization in ornithology removed and some wording added about genetics and microbial ecology. Anyone have any insight about what might be going on here? Is this really two new positions? 3) date posted say 4/18 so either new or a readvertisment 4] Committee Memeber here...we are growing very rapidly [~ 1/3 of the student body is wildlife/biology (w/ pre-vet specializtion)], we did fill one postion in the fall [ornithology] but failed to fill the other opening in terrestrial/spatial ecology...the re-posting was done incorrectly by HR...a new posting will be put up late this week/early next, I apologize for the confusion 5) Is this position tenure track? ad does not say and online suggests maybe this place does not have tenure..#4 here [Committee memeber] have a have a series of three one-year contracts than two three-year contracts that become five-year contracts [a bit unusual for sure]'s certainly not traditional tenure but it works--our department have never released a faculty member who secured a three-year contract 6) Would absolutely love to have an opportunity here, unfortunately I'm an aquatic ecologist and invert systematist and LMC doesn't seem to be interested in these areas even though they translate to prepping students for jobs with state and federal agencies.7) If you are absolutely fine with having no support for research, having an unreasonably high teaching load (and administrative since everyone is constantly leaving this place), being asked to make your courses easier, and on top of that being underpaid (or have no other choice), go for this. 8) @7 are you speaking from experience? Any other red flags, details like pay range, etc.? Can't find anything reliable. 9) If they want a terrestrial/spatial ecologist why don't they just say so? Don't waste applicants' time applying for something they have no shot at being selected for. 7) Yes. My biggest complain is that there is a culture of exploitation of faculy and staff (incl. to be expected to participate in all sorts of recruitment events) with administrators not doing everything in their power to improve the criminally low salaries (40-46K range in my case) in a really expensive area of NC (From Zillow: the average Banner Elk home value is $461,586). It is a shame, because the college would otherwise have an amazing potential, but it is run like a pyramid scheme and I doubt degrees from the college mean anything but that the student could afford to go there. 10) @ 7 Thank you for your input. That place sounds like a hot mess. 7) You are welcome! I would recommend anyone to check all of the details of the teaching load (how course load is calculated) in this department, and see other pretty negative glassdoor reviews. 11) I applied last cycle for this position, I knew the salary was potentially going to be low but I didn't realize how low until a heard the offer. I was offered a position, in addition to my wife getting an offer, a day after hearing from this college. I currently make double the offered salary. It is tough for a small college to offer a significant salary, but it would have been tough to leave my well funded post-doc position to take a position that only offered 45K. I would recommend to all considering applying to understand the salary limiations for a smaller college and accept this as a given. If you are committed to teaching with limited research, it seems like a nice place with tons of potential. 12) @7 Regarding recruitment events: I work at Appalachian State, a Comprehensive University of 20K that is just down the road from LMC, and all faculty at my university take turns participating in recruitment/open house. Students want to meet with the faculty they will be working with, and service is part of our contract. I am confused why anyone thinks that they wouldn't be asked to do this at a small liberal arts college? "High" teaching loads of 4:4 are the norm at a small liberal arts college, as well. You would have this at LMC or even at a prestigious institution like Elon (I have two grad school friends that teach there.) Anything above 12 contact hours (4 courses), you would have to be compensated for an overload. The only way you would have less than a 4:4 is by having release for research, which only happens at larger institutions. At App State, we teach a 3:3 load because we have a one course research release, but that comes with expectations of scholarly products (peer reviewed publications and NSF grant applications). Liberal Arts colleges are focused on teaching, not research. Re: salaries at LMC, most small colleges have low salaries for sure, and all of the schools in the region (App State included) are dealing with increased cost of living (albeit responding slowly). The price of homes has doubled in the last three years, as with many areas around the country. I doubt this situation will last forever. If offered a job, perhaps ask for temporary housing as part of negotiation? Most faculty have never lived right in Banner Elk (for LMC) or Boone (for App State). More reasonable homes are 15-20 minutes away from either campus. As an ecologist, I also consider that I have my field sites right in my back yard! I used to do my work in Colorado, but I save thousands by not having to travel every summer. 13) @12 A 4:4 load is not the "norm" at a liberal arts college. To be fair, the range is from 2:2 to 4:4, and I'd guess that a 3:3 is fairly common as well (I have a 2:2 load prior to research releases at a school of <3000 students). 14) [Search Chair]: I hope that I can clear up some the confusion and derisive statements provided by @ 7. This individual started at LMC at the same time I did, however I experienced my time here very differently than they did and a lot of progress has occurred in the year since they left. Salaries hare still low relative to the cost of housing, but the administration has acknowledged this real problem and made steps to address this. For example, we are transitioning to a higher pay scale across the college and I just received a significant raise. The college has also pledged to develop faculty housing, but we could really use it right now. @7’s comment “the college would otherwise have an amazing potential, but it is run like a pyramid scheme and I doubt degrees from the college mean anything but that the student could afford to go there”. Well they got the first part right, but the last part of this statement undermines their credibility and makes clear their level of personal animosity and desire to damage our ongoing search. The Wildlife program does have tremendous potential and in my time here I have seen so much growth and progress toward this end. This year the campus expanded to include an additional 500 acres, two thirds of which is designated for conservation protection of forest, fields, wetlands, and riparian habitats. We just need more dedicated faculty that are passionate about teaching and mentoring students to become wildlife professionals. We recently hired a wonderful new avian ecologist and a second outstanding wildlife veterinarian. This current ecologist position represents a new line given to us in recognition of our continued growth in student enrollment in wildlife. The administration recognizes the importance of the Wildlife Program and they are investing in us. I am fully transparent about the limitations here and potential of this program and I will gladdly discuss this position with any interested candidates. You can reach me at 15) Wow, Search Chair, good on you! You're doing a tremendous service in being so forthcoming on this board. Seems like there is an axe to grind from others. Best of luck with this search (from a NC native without any real connection to LMC). 16) If the administration has made steps to address the salary issue, what was the adjustment? What's the salary for this position? I'm not piling on this university, but administrators love to talk about progress when they're falling further and further behind on issues like salary. 17] @16, this is #4 [a comittee member] we don't consider it piling on...the salary range discussed by #7 is ~ 133% higher at the present time--the individual is just disgruntled...the sub-optimal salary situation is widespread problem at liberal arts institutions--it's certainly frustrating but not unique to Lees-McRae. You are certainly correct that administrators often fail to reognize that money is a massively importmant consideration (that is not unique to LMC) however that being said, we encourage you and any other ecologist to give us a look. Thanks. Our resources include:] and

They seem most interested in people whose work has implications for human health, but some EEB-type folks might reasonably apply, since the ad is so broad and at least some of the BioFrontiers Institute faculty have their tenure home in EEB. 2) Maybe internal candidate with such a short turn-around time? 3) Link does not appear to work 4) The link worked yesterday (4/3) - maybe they took the page down the moment the deadline passed1

3/31/23 7:01Rutgers UniversityNew JerseyCoral Reef Biology ProfTenure Track5/3/23 8:13No review date listed. anybody know if this is an internal hire? 2) Does it seem odd that there is no research statement asked for? 3) Very strange listing. 4) no contact info either, or am I missing something? 5) Likely to be a teaching-related position since they asked for three teaching-releated docs, but no closing date seems odd. 6) the description says nothing about teaching, and actually mentions how coral reef biology is a hole in Rutgers' research portfolio. Odd job ad, but reads nothing like a teaching position, IMO. 7) Lol, instructions to attach everything as one pdf, then require separate pdfs in portal. 8.) I reached out for clarity on this position (is it teaching focused, etc?). Will report back if I hear anything! 8) intel would be appreciated! I couldn't even figure out who to contact. 9) I did hear it was an "accelerated hire", but not really sure what that means. 10) Well the rejection emails are certainly accelerated; applied 2.5 days ago and just got a rejection. Smells like a pre-selected hire. 11) Wow. I did contact the Chair, but was unable to get any clear answers. He did say it was a "search" but "accelerated hire". He also mentioned it was research focused and not requesting a research statement was accidental. 10again) WTF? So did I get rejected because I didn't include a research statement that wasn't included in multiple lists of required materials? 11again) @10, I doubt it - I'm betting it's an internal hire. But it sucks to be unsure. 8.) me again- got ghosted by chair ... 11again) @8, I also got ghosted by the Chair. We were supposed to have a phone meeting and he missed it. 10again) I emailed the chair for clarification, no response. Clownshoes. 11again) Just got a rejection email stating they are pursuing candidates with skills and experience more closely matching the position. For context, I am an R1 TT coral reef biologist with over $2.8M in funding, 35 pubs, and I teach coral reef ecology, both undergrad and grad. Betting it's an internal or spousal hire. 10again) Also an (unemployed) coral reef biologist with 35 pubs, millions in funding and experience teaching coral reef ecology. Same email. 12) Did get some intel that this was, indeed, an arranged hire.2

3/24/23 14:13Southern Oregon UniversityOregonHuman Anatomy & Physiology4/16/2023 Term5/5/23 15:241) This isn't ecoevo, though as someone mainly looking for teaching-focused positions I'll say it's depressingly common, especially at community colleges and smaller public universities - a good 60-70% of the job openings are all about whether you know how to cut up bodies. 2) I do think that a lot of vertebrate biologists are well trained for A&P type positions--many whose primary research is in ecoevo! (No offense intended @1, just want to make a case that this job is appropriate for this board.) The vertebrate community has known for a long, long time that being trained in cadaver-based anatomy is a pathway to getting a permanent job...I agree that it is unfortunate that many of those positions no longer include being able to have a research lab. 3) Deadline extended until May 16th; initial appointment is for a year, but potential for renewal.

Does this essentially negate non UK applicants? 6) Not sure about this school, but as an American I interviewed at a few UK schools. All said an offer would be contingent on visa approval. Visas for professors in STEM looked very straightforward. Don't let it stop you from applying to the UK. 7) "We welcome candidates with expertise in ecological applications of remote sensing/airborne platforms and data-driven innovation in ecology." 8) Got email clarification about the right to work thing- "If the successful candidate needed to apply for right to work in the UK, the University of Edinburgh would provide visa sponsorship" 9) email rejection6
