They have the right to do it, we have the right to boo them, so booooo. X6. 6) If private christian universities want to attract good scientific faculty they need to be OPEN to those without faith. Most here aren't saying "boo christian scientists" let us teach science and let the bloated uni admin worry about the christian stuff. x4 7) freedom of speech and belief works two ways, they can believe what they want and we can believe their beliefs are booable x2 8) Oh no!

8/8/22 4:55University of CambridgeUnited KingdomZoology9/5/2022 ProfTenure Track8/13/22 3:17Looks like a big hiring push this year. 2) Cambridge Zoology member here - this and other permanent positions are replacing recent retirements which accumulated during COVID. No special hiring program / push, and nothing on the cards for a while after this professorship. (2 again) I should also point out that this is a nice place to work, and a lovely area to live, and the Prof salary will be more than sufficient to have a decent quality of life in Cambridge (unlike, say, a postdoc salary, or even Lecturer/Assistant Prof, who increasing need to commute to Cambridge from a few miles out). 3) does "full prof" mean that postdocs shouldn't apply? 4) The list of priors looks like Fellows of the Royal Society. (equivalent to US National Acad members). I wouldn't expect to get it as a postdoc, though I generally favor applying first asking questions later. (2 again) The priors indeed went on to become FRS, though they might not have been when they started. Even so (and I say this as a postdoc myself), postdocs will have no chance here. The hire will be someone who already has tenure and an international reputation, and probably a large, active grant with people. 4) Thanks for the scoop #2! x3
8/6/22 21:47Baylor UniversityTexasMicrobial Ecology10/15/2022 ProfTenure Track8/13/22 17:25Copying my comment from the other advert from this department. I'm a former employee of this department, and my experience working here was negative. I experienced harassment and bullying from my supervisor, and observed graduate students being treated similarly. A professor in this department is under investigation for research misconduct, and the department has covered up and ignored problematic behavior in the past. I regret working here; there are good people in this department, but my time here exemplified academic toxicity. As for the faith aspect, faculty are expected to maintain a religious affiliation, but it does not have to be Baptist. Faculty candidates are expected to make a verbal expression of faith at some point during the interview process, and then demonstrate that (e.g., log worship attendance) if hired. 2) I applied to this position last year and can confirm they will "Faculty candidates are expected to make a verbal expression of faith at some point during the interview process, and then demonstrate that (e.g., log worship attendance) if hired". I was asked to confirm what parish or church I attend, how often, etc. To be transparent, I was told they would ask but I was also told that it wouldn't be a big deal. Just a few questions that would never matter. I was also told that being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community would be welcomed. However, prior to in-person I was sent an email stating this : "Frankly, we are still challenged with these issues within our faculty. For example, would you be comfortable in an environment where BU-PP-031 states: “Baylor will be guided by the biblical understanding that human sexuality is a gift from God and that physical sexual intimacy is to be expressed in the context of marital fidelity. Thus, it is expected that Baylor students, faculty and staff will engage in behaviors consistent with this understanding of human sexuality.” This policy (which dates back to 1963) can impose a barrier for some prospective faculty since it still holds for faculty members. The second area concerns tenure. I want to make sure that you would be comfortable with Baylor’s current expectation that all faculty being considered for tenure have a personal involvement with a local faith community.". So to be clear, if you are a LGBTQIA+, alley, or non-religous please beware of this AD and university/department 3) Yikes x17 4) Sounds like a nightmare 5) I honestly hope they get few applications X3. 6) Really appreciate sharing your experience #2. x3 5) The only faith community I am personally involved with is this job board. x6

It is a waste of all the letter writers' time if you get 200+ applications x10 5) SC - we've looked into this repeatedly, with all upstream steps and relatively early interviews we only have ~1 week where they could be requested in between long and short list, which seems unreasonable to candidates and writer 6) @SC so your answer instead is to demand for maybe 500 PIs to write letters, many for applications you will dismiss out of hand? Your solution should have been to alter YOUR review schedule to have more than a week between lists, not to burden applicants and their support. x10 7) I'd love to be in the department, but I have a strict no upfront letter of rec policy - I already have a tenured job, so I'm just not going to apply.x5

For instance I'm a microbial ecologist 3) These positions are very human disease focused, and unless the center of your research focus is a human disease you are unlikely to be considered. Microbial ecologist is great, but whats your direct human relevance to a condition/disease? If you have one, great, but 99% of the people cruising eco/evo job boards aren't going to be relevant to this ad. There have been far less human health focused ads on here that get removed, and while I disagree with that, thats just how its been on here. A quick look at the Stadtman Investigators list will demonstrate this point. 4) my phd and postdoc is eeb dept, most of my apps will be too. I plan to apply, and think I'm a reasonably good fit. no reason to tell other people what their work does or doesn't do. I collaborator in my field got an interview last year 5) I plan to apply too, honestly would be my dream job: no grant writing!! Yes, connection to human disease seems a bit constraining but it's just one stage where my research can be applied

How much do you roughly get after tax/health care contributions? 2) this is the UK so....heath care costs are not really a thing. Your taxes are entirely dependent on your personal situation. 3) It looks like there's a 20% tax rate for that salary (, but I have no experience with that the UK tax system. 4) Historicallly the pound was 1.5-1.7 to the dollar. Salaries seem to still be estimated on that scale. Benefits are likely to be better, salary dollars worse. 5) Bangor is quite a small town and house prices are about 150-180 k if that helps. 6) The 20% number 3 calculated includes income tax ans national insurance (state pension and healhcare contributions), you would also probably pay into the USS pension scheme. You'd take home around 2,256 GBP a month on the bottom of the scale. Not a lot, but it's a cheap area. 7) Take note right at the bottom: "Please note that we are unable to employ anyone who does not have the right to live and work in the UK legally."; 8) I know other schools make the offer contingent on securing a visa. Visas for PhDs in STEM seem simpler than the US, based on my exploration as an American searching abroad. Apply for the job first, visas later. 9) Is this like in the Netherlands, where some jobs are advertised as having to be locally filled and will not support a visa application? 9) How are you getting 2650/month out of 34k/year at 20% tax? 10) Clarified that visa application for international applicants will be supported by department1

7/26/22 11:40Washington University in St. LouisMissouriGenetics & Genomics10/1/2022 / Assoc ProfTenure Track8/12/22 9:01We are interested in candidates who employ innovative genetics/genomics approaches to investigate fundamental questions in plant biology and/or evolutionary biology. The closing date says 23 Oct but in the text it says "Deadline for full consideration of applications is 1 October 2022" AP) I changed the "Review Date" to October 1 since that seems the most-relevant deadline. Also: two positions! 1) This might be a silly distinction, but do they mean plant biology and/or plant evolutionary biology, OR plant biology and/or general evolutionary biology? 2) Wording like this is intentionally vague, but usually means that they prefer hiring in plant + evolutionary bio, but will settle for either alone should the right candidate come along. 3) anyone have a view on whether this is search is likely to just hire 2 associate profs? This trend has been increasing and I don't see a top program like WashU not getting several associate prof ads. x2 4) @3 I went to WUSTL for undergrad and can confirm that several of their faculty--though not all, were hires of existing professors. No read on the new ad and how likely it is, however. 5) @3 There are 4 new TT faculty starting in this dept this fall (hires from the past 2 years) - 2 were postdocs prior to starting, 1 was a non-TT Asst Prof equivalent, and 1 was an Assoc Prof. In last year's hire, only postdocs and grad students were interviewed for an Asst Prof position. So, I wouldn't assume you don't have a chance in this hire if you are a postdoc

7/25/22 10:46California State University, Sacramento CaliforniaBiology (All Areas)9/15/2022 ProfTenure Track8/2/22 12:18The job ad says "For full consideration, all application materials must be received by September 15, 2022", but the application is scheduled to close on July 26, 2022 (11:55 PM) Pacific Daylight Time. Is this significant? Does it mean there were a lot of applicants or that the search is closed? 2) Job gone? 3) Administrative error in HR, it should be reposted today (faculty not on search committee) 4) Job posting revived1

7/23/22 4:47Carleton UniversityCanadaMolecular Microbiology9/1/2022 ProfTenure Track8/2/22 12:18What is the teaching load for this position? 1) I don't know, but typical for a Canadian research university is 2-3 courses per year or up to 4 at those that emphasize teaching. Carleton is closer to the emphasizing teaching end out of the research universities, but is definitely still a research university.

Do not know the exact salary range but it is probably similar to postdoc (unlivable in NYC), and note it is designated non-union. 3) I'm sure this is more than pd salary, that being said I did a postdoc at the AMNH and I'm still alive. 4) salary mid 70s2

This position opened up because one of the Asst Profs left for another job 3) German here. I don't think "Asst Prof" is a proper description of this position. As per the ad, it's a junior group within a larger group and clearly not independent; also the title and salary scale (not the W scale for professors, but the regular public service scale) indicate that this is more a staff scientist position. AP) Vielen Dank @3, I changed the rank to "Lecturer" (which is what they use in the ad). 4) These usually have a 6 year limit 5) There are three junior groups listed on their homepage (incl. the group leader that left?), highly recommended to contact them to check out the job conditions (e.g. level of independence, ...) and if the working environment is for you

I've never seen that "grants submitted" wording before - does this mean they want one to include grant submissions for which the outcome is yet to be decided, or is it asking for a list of past grant submissions, including unsuccessful ones? I could see it either way, e.g. for the second option they want to know about the effort put into grants that would be hidden if only successful grants were listed..., 3) Hello from Davidson, we are interested in any efforts to obtain funding. Unsuccessful, pending, or successful; all are indicative of effort and potential! 4) Thank you for your response and the very detailed job ad! 4.) Any chance of interest in invert organismal bio? I imagine not, but never hurts to ask :) 5) What a well-written job ad! A welcome change. 6) Davidson here. Thank you. :o) And no, sorry, verts only (this time!) 7) I feel like postions like these are impossible to get. Publish lots. Show you get grants. And oh yeah, be an amazing tranformative teacher. But kuddos to the detailed add. This one should have an insane amount of apps. 8) I am concerned about it's Presbyterian association and associated Calvinist foundation. 9) I don't know much about Davidson, but many, many colleges/universities in the US were founded as religious institutions or with the goal of teaching clergy. It's a byproduct of the strong religious culture in early US history ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Many no longer have any affiliation, or if they do, it has little to no effect on students/classroom (especially older colleges). That said, there are still very religious colleges in the US. I'd encourage everyone considering a college with a religious founding to actually check out how religion impacts day-to-day life before judging a school for this. (x3) 10) Writing from Davidson here, re: our religious/Presbyterian association. I'd encourage anyone interested in the position to read the long job ad and note the things we do and don't emphasize in that document, which is designed to be a transparent and honest accounting of what life at Davidson would be like. It would not benefit candidates, our students, or our institution if we were hiding any reality about Davidson.

Or wholly different? (3) Re-post: people offered the position in the last round declined, so readvertised. 2) I submitted my app. Any insight about whether this position is for independent faculty vs bioinformatics service to other labs in the department? (4) Independent position; masters level bioinformatics teaching is a key requirement (5) Any insider note about the Silwood vs Kensington campus situation? Would most of the work be done at Silwood, or frequent trips to both campuses are needed?4

It's nice to see jobs whenever they come, but I'm curious what it's related to. 2) I feel like the UK doesn't really have a 'cycle'... jobs just pop up when they pop up and you have like 2 days to accept them if offered. 3) All of the UK jobs I've applied to have been posted in late spring/early summer. They don't follow the NA job cycle, as far as I can tell. 4) The so-called "job cycle" is a U.S. thing. Universities from elesewhere hire whenever they have a vacancy or get a new position, 5) Cambridge prof here-- it's an open Chair position triggered by a faculty retirement. There is nothing to read into here in it being off-cycle. OP) Thanks prof!1
