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.
3/23/23 3:42University of MünsterGermanyBiosciences4/23/2023 ProfTenure Track3/24/23 6:491) Enthusiastic young researcher in the biosciences, whose line of research shows extraordinary promise for the development of an internationally recognized research program at our faculty. (2) Is there a language requirement? (3) is this really a tenure track position or do you lose employment after the 3+3 years as is typical in Germany? (4) what constitutes young? Isn't this an agist statement? Yes! (5) As someone who was a somewhat non-traditional PhD student, I take great offense to statements of "young". I hope I am still considered a currently effective and promising future researcher regardless of my age! From ad: "Active time in academia will be considered in the evaluation process." Even if it is not explicitly age-related, I can't stand these types of restrictions. I guess it comes down to eligibility for grants? 5) As someone that didn't get a similar position because I was "too old", this is usually related to limits established by ERC grants. A "young" researcher is <6-7 years post-PhD. 6) Realize that in Germany and in much of Europe that ageism is ok. I had a grant proposal rejected once because even though they saw the merits and found nothing wrong with the proposal, for my age I didn't have enough papers, but this is something never put in the program description, you only find out after you apply and get the written reviews back. There is generally an expectation of a linear trajectory in one's career, one starts early, say in the first year of their university studies, and then move quickly on to a Phd, then a postdoc and then a junior prof. It's a system that maximizes performance of young people, who if by the time have not secured a permanent positoin after the junior prof position, often are legally banned from taking up a science position in Germany and have to leave the country. This has been discussed elsewhere, so I won't repeat it.

It's a good department and it's a good college. NMSU has overall low salary even though NM is a cheap state and that's my biggest complaint; other than that I would recommend this place. Not sure what the salary is for this position, but I know that assistant professors on a 12 month appointment are making around 85k which is much higher compared to what assistant professors on a 9 month appointment in other colleges are making. 2) Thanks for the update @1), but if it's 12-month appointment, does it mean the faculty will not get addtional summer funding support, compared to those in a 9-month appointment? In other words, the 12-month will have less motivation to get funding than those with 9-month term?

Primary teaching responsibilities will include teaching in Introductory Biology and/or our core courses of Genetics and Evolution. Hope is a wonderful place to work, especially for those interested in combining research with a liberal arts education. The instuition is a Christian instuition but there is not a strict expectation to have this influence our classroom teaching. The department supports (and necessitates) the teaching of evolution to its students.

Then you get promoted to higher "ranks". Expectation is to develop a research team, and also to do some MSc-level block teaching. 2) I'd be EXTREMELY careful about working for this employer - this is not a good opportunity IMO 3) Most of us at QM are happy and lucky that what goes on in the principal's corridor stays in the principal's corridor. So it doesn't really affect us. We do have a great and cohesive long-term eco/evo department and community, and the principal gets replaced every 6 years or so. [Many of us are frustrated about the UK's "marketisation of higher education" - somewhat following the footsteps of the US. That the aforementioned article exists and makes headlines highlights that UK higher education is strongly unionised, and that UK unions still do have power & a voice]. 4) I recommend contacting head of department as suggested in job advertisement. Evol Bio is strong and the department is very supportive. 5.) There seems to be VERY FEW women in this bio department--is there some sort of story here? 6) 7) 2)@3&4 I'm not sure how you can claim that an employer's attempts to undermine the legal and democratic rights of unionised staff doesn't not affect you? I wonder if more junior precarious staff at QMU would have the same attitude. Yes the UCU is doing well at the moment, but that doesn't hide the fact that QMU was/is doing it's best to intimidate its members. The point here is if you are a competitive candidate then go somewhere else because this university does not care about it's staff. Just as an aside point because I see this a lot on this sheet when the wider behaviour of the university is criticised "the department is supportive/good/strong..." sure but it's important to remember that you don't work for the 'department' you work for the university. Yes a strong dept head can shield you to some extent from bad management, but not always.X2 8) I agree with much of what you say. 7. In many universities, parts of "central management" is at odds with staff. However it is worth putting things into a general UK perspective. And in that view, QMUL and in particular QM biology is on good footing - with a great overall dynamic & cash flowing, an ability to expand, and good support for much of what matters from the central powers in the university. (You mention precarious staff - we have very few short-term contracts in QM Biology (unless you count postdocs & phd students who do some TA-ing) - and I'm not that old!).

Certainly seems like an inside hire. 5) It seems that 6) It is an internal hire 7) I'm not sure if this is the case, but based on time it sounds like the requirements for green card sponsorship by the university, where they need to have it posted for x amount of time, and have the search to show things for imigration 8) I'm 100% sure both of these (marine and terrestrial) are internal hires (I know someone in the department). This one is a done deal. x1 9) despite being an internal hire, they are requesting letters up front. That is a bit frustrating x2 10) On campus interview 11) Could you clarify whether you are an internal or external candidate? 12) I didn't apply for this, but in the department and I'm pretty sure they sent out all of the interview invitations 2

2/23/23 5:40University of Nebraska at KearneyNebraskaEvolutionary Biologist / Evolutionary Ecologist3/22/2023 / Assoc ProfTenure Track3/23/23 7:24I wonder what the teaching load and salary might be for this position. They mention a lot of classes... 2) as a public university salaries should be listed for current faculty 3) UNK, '22-'23 BIOL salaries: Assistant profs: $56k-59k; Associate profs: most ~$63k, a couple ~$83k for some reason; Full profs: $80-90k. pp 1620-1621: 4) yeah, that would be a helluva pay cut from my current non-TT faculty job 5) agreed, and many of these places pitch lower cost of living, but with housing market and inflation that is not true anymore 6) FWIW, it's a very nice small town @6 can you elaborate on that? 7) Not quite clear from the posting; teaching Evolution is required, and teaching biostats and ecology is preferred, but not required? I can teach Evolution and Ecology, but probably not biostats. Is that a deal-breaker? 2

2/22/23 7:32Reinhardt UniversityGeorgiaBiology4/30/2023 ProfTenure Track3/1/23 7:14from search member: Reinhardt is a typical small liberal arts school with small classroom sizes. If you want to make lasting relationships with students and help train them to be scientists, this may be a good place for you. I cannot lie, the teaching load is high and the pay is not stellar, but there is a lot of flexibility here. We are reconsidering our degree program (requirements, emphasis, etc.) and you could have an important influence. We are in an incredibly biologically-rich locale that is 1 hour from downtown ATL and 1 hour from the Cohutta Mountains. Consider giving us a chance.
2/22/23 7:19Miami UniversityOhioOrganismal Biology / Zoology3/15/2023 ProfTenure Track3/17/23 22:48From description: "a biologist who explores mechanisms that underlie animal diversity or behavior at any level of biological organization" 1) This is at the Hamilton campus 2) What is the relationship between campuses? I notice some faculty seem to have offices at both and they are only 20 minutes apart. Do Hamilton faculty take graduate students? 3) SC member here, all life sciences faculty on Miami's regional campuses have lab and office space on the Oxford campus and have the opportunity to mentor graduate students 4) Any info on what the teaching load for this position would be? 5) The base load is 24 contact hours a year. Pretenure faculty reveive a release to 21. A typical semester is 2 lectures and 2 labs. Faculty teach their own labs, but there is support staff for lab prep. 6) that seems like a high teaching load in biology, even for an R2 7) And especially if they really want an active research program. 7) Research expectations are scaled to account for the fact that regional faculty have a higher teaching load than main campus collegues. The expectations are more in line with a regional comprehensive than a R2. 8) @5 would this usually be 2 sections of the same lab/ lecture or 4 individual courses? 9) 5 again, there are a lot of possibilities and we try to be flexible. It could be 1 lecture (3 hours) and 2 lab sections (2 hours each) associated with that lecture and then another lecure course with no lab (3 hours). This would be a total of 10 contact hours for the semester. 10) sounds like an easy teaching schedule to me! sign me up! 4

2/22/23 6:47Skidmore CollegeNew YorkBiology VAPFixed Term2/23/23 10:32two poisitons open for this fall, they are different term lengths, review begins immediately 2) this is the third or fourth VAP at Skidmore in Env sci/Bio for fall 2023, any idea what is going on in this department? 3) member of dept here; Skidmore's Biology dept in the midst of two phased retirements and a faculty member becoming a Dean (read: change, not turmoil) 4) I mean this sincerely, with no judgement about Skidmore because I know nothing, but I laughed at the distinction between change and turmoil. Loss of three senior faculty in one year is a big change that usually causes turmoil, especially at small schools. I am projecting, but why can't departments plan ahead instead of hiring VAPs to fill last-minute positions? 5) 2 here, I was asking mostly to see if the new plan for the department is just a deluge of VAP, lecturers, and adjuncts, like I've seen happening more and more at SLACs. VAPs are cheap, and one way to crunch the budget at the expense of the most vulnerable. If that is the plan here, I won't bother applying.3

Liverpool is one of the most affordable cities in the UK and I think a great place to live, vibrant city, close to the beach, <2 hours to the mountains. 2) Is there much anti-foreigner sentiment in Liverpool? 3) no there isn't much anti foreigner sentiment in Liverpool, it's a vibrant diverse city, heavily left-leaning, little support for Brexit 4) These are permanent not fixed term positions equivilent to Assistant/Associate Prof. Tenure track doesn't exist in UK, just a light touch probationary period of 3 years. 5) Could someone familiar speak to the salary vs cost of living? The salary looks very low but maybe because I'm thinking in USD I don't know how far a pound goes.4
