9/30/22 6:21Sweet Briar CollegeVirginiaAnimal Physiology or Entomology11/1/2022 / Assoc ProfTenure Track10/1/22 6:15Looking for someone who can teach animal physiology, microbiology, entomology, OR developmental biology plus share intro course responsibilities. College is rebuilding our research culture, but we are a small, teaching intensive PUI. Strong history of collaborations across disciplines. Beautiful campus with over 2000+ acres perfect outdoor laboratory! 2) Is Sweet Briar no longer planning to close? Is this off the table? 3) Yeah what does "rebuilding" mean? 4) It probably means its finances have withstood much closer scrutiny than most other small colleges. 5) i think the rebuilding was just in reference to faculty research- probably no one did any and now they want faculty to start doing some 6) When Sweet Briar almost closed before there were a bunch of stories about research animals needing to be re-housed and equipment moving, etc. It was saved from closing at the very last minute. So I assume this means 'rebuilding' to the research culture that existed before the near closing.

They do have some joint apointments with folks in EEB. 3) Maybe, math departments can sometimes be strict on the exact PhD degree 4) I think UT is more open minded than most math departments in terms of what backgrounds and research are acceptable, but make sure you can get a letter addressing your teaching qualifications as that is expected for almost every job at a math department. Math postdocs teach more often than in other fields and most math departments have a system to make sure someone observes the postdocs teaching to facilitate letter writing 5) Not sure many of us theoreticians had a teaching postdoc, so I'm guessing its not worth applying...(?) 6) @5 you could contact the chair and ask, or just apply and see what happens.

We are excited to announce a Diversity Equity and Inclusion cluster hire search, with candidates recruited from all areas of Biology." 5) does a DEI cluster hire mean people who are from underrepresented groups, or anyone who has a strong track record of engagement with DEI work? 6) Good questions for the chair @5. In my experience, it usually means the latter. I've been in plenty of DEI spaces where the diversity was a Midwesterner in a Southern state. Granted, they might have been disabled or from a low-income background. 7) From the list of qualifications in the ad: "Evidence of commitment to or strong potential for the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion for underrepresented minority students and groups (African-American/Black, Latino (a) Chicano (A)/Hispanic, and Native American), and how this commitment integrates with teaching, research and service." 8) If they're pushing for more DEI have they fixed the fee/stipend situation? A few years ago there was a lot coming out about students barely surviving on their stipends. Would be a substantial barrier to anyone they hire. 9) I'm faculty at LSU and in response to @8, we were able to get the grad student fees waived (thank goodness). I believe it goes into action sometime in 2024. 10) PhD alum of dept here. Despite budget woes and state-level issues, I cannot recommend this enough as a wonderful, collaborative, collegial, thriving dept for EEB x3 11) @9, do you know why it is taking so long to waive the fees? This issue was brought up a while ago, that seems like a long time to wait to change an issue that actively harms student wellbeing. 12) @11 this is happenning almost solely through grad student activism, including forming an Union, and it took AN ACT OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE, which has passed and been signed by the governor, so please hold your horses. It will happen when it happens, but IT WILL HAPPEN, which is the most important part. Chill out. x2 13) SC Member here - graduate student fee removal will be in place starting Fall 2024.

We welcome applicants who address fundamental evolutionary questions using integrative approaches and methods, in any system, including from organismal, genetic, and/or theoretical perspectives. 1) Does "Chair" mean the person is being hired to chair the department? Or is this just a fancy name for the appointment/endowment? I only ask because it seems weird to hire an Asst Prof as the chair of a department, right? 2) It is just an endowed/named professor position, it is not the department chair. 3) Realistically, is there any chance of this being appointed at the Asst Prof level? It seems very unlikely. 4) many other schools have "chairs" they award to Asst Profs in their 1-2 year at the institution, so maybe not unlikely if they end up going that route? 5) I got my PhD in this department, and I can say its a top-notch evolution destination. That said, this is a brand new endowed chair and I wouldn't be shocked if they hire an asst prof--the department values ECRs. I would encourage applications and see how it goes. 6) They are absolutely interested in the Asst Level.

9/20/22 15:08Bennington CollegeVermontEcology / Evolution10/7/2022 ProfPermanent Non-TT9/29/22 11:11Particular areas of focus include, but are not limited to, plant biology, natural history, ecosystem or landscape ecology, conservation or global change ecology, geographic information systems, biogeography, and/or evo-devo biology. 1) Is this position tenure track? The job ad doesn't say explicitly 2) Search chair here. @1 Bennington is a unique place. No one at Bennington has tenure proper, but we do have a system by which faculty are reviewed by their peers (internally and externally) on a slightly different timeline. I just went through the process myself for the first time, and I will repeat it again in 6 years. In practice, it is not too different. [extended discussion on lack of tenure removed - please continue at "General Discussion" -AP] 3) So the teaching load is 20 credits/yr or 4-5 courses year? because these seem quite different. 2) @3 Both. 1 lecture course = 4 credits. 1 lecture + lab = 6 credits. 4) which department is this position in, Biology? 2) @4 The position is in the "Math and Science Discipline Group". Within, are two full-time bio faculty, integrated organismal and cell/molecular, our long-time eco/evo faculty member retired two years ago. 5) There are some upfront and helpful SC members on here, thank you! I am wondering if references be contacted for letters automatically after app submission, or after the first round of screening? 2) @5 Thank you and you're welcome. We will ask for letters from referees of only those that make it to the first round (Zoom, no more than 10) OR maybe just the final 3-4 who we plan to invite for campus visits (beautiful campus). 5) thanks @2, are there traditional US academic ranks in your system (Asst, Assoc, Prof) or is it simply "full time/permanent" or not? 6) Anyone have insight on whether the "split position" policy means they don't do real spousal hires or could it differ if spouse is in a different department? 2) @5, there is no traditional ranking, in fact, no offical or unoffical ranking or seniority at all. @6 Spousal hires have been done before, there are current openings in Chemistry, Sculpture, Photography, and soon to be advertised in Computer Science. It is possability (especially for spouses that can teach CS!), I would bring it up if you make it to the first round of interviews. 11) I noticed instead of a teaching statement, the job wants : c) descriptions of three potential course offerings -- I've never done something like this before, any guidance? For example, on how long and how much detail to go into for each course? 12) @11 The admin is fixing that clerical error. We DO want to hear about your teaching philosophy, which is paramount at a place like Bennington. Three class descriptions could easily fit on one page. I would check out course descriptions for current classes online. And I will just say that Bennington is a place that celebrates bold, unique, and niche curricula and pedagogy. 13) A heads up that the application form requires both a "CV" and a "Curriculum Vitae"—I had to upload mine twice in order to submit my application 14) There are so many keywords that align with my background for the curriculum and teaching you're looking for and I love innovative pedagogy. But I am really nervous about the long-term financial viability of a small, environmentally-focused school like this after the closure of Marlboro College and Green Mountain College. I was also laid off from a position I had at Unity College during the pandemic, and so were many of the long-term faculty with active research and teaching labs. Can the SC speak to the long-term financial viability of the college? I apologize for asking that in such a blunt way. 15) This university already instituted a very public and widely-derided series of budgetary layoffs of profs with "presumptive tenure" in the mid 1990s. 2) @13 thanks, HR has been notified, but it appears the problem persists. To get the system to accept an application you may have to upload the CV 2x @14 Understandable concern about many SLACs. This may not help, but let me point out a few things. I would not call Bennington an environmentally-focuses school, not in the STEM sense of environemtnally-focused. Bennington is most well known for their visual & performing arts and literature programs. The incoming class of 2021 and 2022 are the 2 largest in the school's history, early signs indicate that 2023 might be even bigger. Also, no Bennington faculty (permanent nor visiting) were let go or fired during the pandemic. 16) This is a basic questions, but is there a salary range for this hire? Also, during these reviews are there opportunities for raises? I am asking becuase I know that promotion between assistant, assocaite, and full professor are the only opportunity that most professors have for any kind of financial advancement through their career. 2) @16 I compared my starting salary from when I started to the SLAC salaries reported in the negotiation tab for that same season, and mine was at the 60th percentile, so competitive. I don’t actually know for sure what you should expect, but my ballpark estimate would be high 60’s to mid 70’s. Also, according to Google, Bennington, VT cost of living is 83.9 (US average=100), driven mostly by low cost of housing. Oppertunity for rasies that go beyond the yearly CofL increases happen one-on-one with the Provost office. Following reviews before new contracts are signed are an ideal time to do this at the faculty memeber's inititive. 17) 16 here again, thank you very much for the detailed information and being so open, I greatly appreciate it! 3

9/19/22 22:14Duke UniversityNorth CarolinaBiology10/21/2022 ProfTenure Track9/25/22 7:12Two positions. 2) Ugh another one with 3 letters upfront 3) dear Duke search committee: literally nobody wants letters up front. Some other searches have already been roasted over the coals for this policy this year (and every year). If you are reading this and it is at all within your power to change this, you absolutely should. It's partially an equity issue and in general over-burdens mentors. 4) it's thru academic jobs online, you can reuse reference letters to apply to multiple positions 5) @4, depends if your mentors have shared your letters with you, right? Also, many mentors think it's important to tailor their letters. 6) @4 even if they've shared letters with you, often search committees are asking for reference emails and then letters are automatically requested from mentors, so it doesn't matter if they've shared with you -- they still have to be the ones to upload letters! 7) Maybe just submit the application without the letters. If the SC likes what they see, maybe they'll ask for the letters and things can move along as if this silly requirement never existed. 8) The application won't be complete without reference letters in the system. I'm not sure if it means they won't get it or not. 9) Some HR departments and even faculty collective agreements require reference letters up-front. That should absolutely change but not including them if asked will probably result in an incomplete - whether or not that matters will vary quite a bit. 10) You have better odds applying to jobs with letters up front, as you can see it weeds out a lot of applicants. 11) @10, are you serious??? x2 12) it sucks but we all know people are still going to be applying for this opportunity. At least the competitive applicants wlll no matter what.4
