Seems like a revival of a search that was cancelled during COVID. 2) The previous search was cancelled and swept due to COVID.

11/22/22 7:37University of ArkansasArkansasPlant Evolutionary Biology12/18/2022 ProfTenure Track11/25/22 22:411) I hear Fayetteville is a surprisingly cool place to live. x4 (2) Am a potential international applicant, and am nervous about Arkansas for political reasons. Could anyone with experience comment on how this transition might be for applicants that reside in a more liberal country (or american state)? (3) @2 it sounds the indignity of intermingling with poor, ignorant Americans would be too much for you. (4) @3 that's not fair, it's a legit question. @2 I've lived on both coasts and the south, and there are good and bad in both places. Fayetteville and the NWA region as a whole is uniquely diverse. Also note that if granted an interview you'd be able to see the area and decide for yourself if it's worth relocating to. (5) #3 -- the poverty of the US south is not the problem to international applicants, I'd worry about the the racism and xenophobia, especially if they don't share their beliefs. x2 (6) i can't imagine southerners being as discriminatory as these potential international applicants (7) @2 Arkansas native-here, lots of family in the Fayetteville area. Relative to the rest of the state (and much of the southern US), Fayetteville is a progressive place IMO, like a watered-down Asheville, NC. I might guess you will be plesantly surprised by the atmosphere if you were to visit. I wouldn't let this concern prevent an application submission, as others have said you'll have an opportunity visit if you progress in the app process. I'm biased of course, but having lived and grown accustomed to larger cities in the US, I'd still happily consider Fayetteville as a landing place FWIW. 8) Fayttevile is a tiny liberal island in an ocean of Trump country. Not a bad place to live if you can stomach living in Arkansas (I cannot). UAr is ranked among the top 50 conservative colleges in the US, fwiw.

This is not approved yet, but it seems likely that it will happen before the new year. Make sure that you ask about this if you get to the finalist stage as the details are important and will indeed likely mean then end of tenure as it currently exists for faculty in Florida. 5) thanks for this info @4, do you have a source where we could read about this? I honestly would like some review of tenured faculty given that many of them are the reason academia sucks in many aspects, but if this post tenure review process involves some political bull that makes it easy for schools to pay people less, then I wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole. Ok, after googling it this is really concerning in my opinion. I also didn't know about this: "The survey, required in a bill approved last year, posed questions asking if students felt their professors used their platforms to inject their viewpoint and asked all about their political beliefs." 6) FYI, this program has hemorrhaged minority assistant professors in recent years, has one of the lowest stipends for students in any R1 grad program. But I am sure they will ask about your efforts to promote DEI. 7) Faculty here are actively working to improve stipends, unlike many R1 grad programs in the state. 8) I was in the department as a grad student about a decade ago. Ive since been a grad student or postdoc at several "elite" instutions. The education, training, and support I got here was the best I've had in my career. That being said, the stipend was a serious serious challenge. 9) I'd say losing tenure and being in an environment where climate change, evolution, gender and other topics are considered political beliefs rather than concepts with scientific basis, would be a really bad mix. Imagine doing a 5 year post doc over and over again until you retire. Nope. Let Florida wipe out its SUS. 9) @6 I find it very telling that a department at a hispanic-serving institution has maybe one Latinx faculty in the roster only. 10) I did my PhD there, can confirm only 1 non-white profs, very disappointed as a BIPOC member. 11) I wanted to comment on the survey mentioned above. The survey was responded by only 2% of faculty and students, not representative. Besides, they found NOTHING to support the stupid idea that professors are injecting their political viewpoints on students. Yet, FL is a scary state, I lived in South Florida a few years and, as a WOC, never found community. My neighbours never came to say hello despite we all had kids around the same age.

Anyone not have one and applying? 3) the way I see it when an ad "requires" postdoctoral experience it's more of a suggestion/culling mechanism than an actual requirement, so it's kind of misleading. So maybe here they just decided to avoid that and leave it more open? I'd say if this or any other positions look like a good fit for you even if you don't have postdoc experience, go ahead and apply.

11/7/22 8:09Northeastern UniversityMassachusettsMultiple (across College of Science)12/1/2022 ProfTenure Track11/19/22 8:41INVEST Junior Faculty Program, positions across departments in the College of Science. (1) Does anyone have experience with this program? 2) I applied last year and made it to on campus interview stage but was told by the dean in my interview I was too far along in my career for the program (I was in my second year as Asst. Prof at a small school, for reference). They are really focused on still PhD/just out of PhD 3) the application requirements are really specific in terms of statement content. Basically had to rewrite all of my materials. While I appreciate that this is a unique program, do they realize how much work this is?! I hope the program coordinators/search committee see this and understand it is going to be a barrier for some applicants. 4) Thanks #2! Was going to apply for this but will forget about it and save the time. 5) If you're interested in applying I highly recommend contacting someone in the department you'd want to be placed in (i.e. the chair, who may refer you to the chair of the INVEST search for that department), they will have a lot more info about what each department is looking to prioritize. FWIW, someone I talked to wasn't even aware that the application asked for all of those specific requirements for statement content; they were not looking for them as the departmental search committee and only expected standard research, teaching, and DEI statements, so if you submit your normal materials it may be fine. (Completely agree that it's a barrier for the college-wide search to ask for very specific statements, particularly if the departments don't care). (6) Thanks @5. Also just want to chime in to say that if you're looking to recruit diverse faculty, prefacing what you're looking for with terms like "brilliance" is going to cause many such people (incl. myself) to feel like we're not qualified...5

11/7/22 7:19Otterbein UniversityOhioZoo / Conservation Science12/5/2022 / Assoc ProfTenure Track11/12/22 8:43I know the person that previously held this position, and I assume this is a 1-to1 replacement for them. They said it was a difficult place to work, they had an increasingly disproportionate amount of work pushed on them, and there were significant issues with sexism within their immediate workplace. Apparently, the person before them in the same position also left early and for similar issues. Take from that what you will....

11/6/22 10:40Purdue UniversityIndianaBiological Sciences11/27/2022 / Assoc ProfTenure Track11/22/22 19:13Multiple tenure-track or tenured faculty positions. Applications are welcome from researchers in any area of life sciences, including but not limited to neurobiology, microbiology, immunology, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, and chemical biology. 1) Another one with references up front? It states both "names of three references" and "request three letters of reference to be sent to..." 2) Is it a bad sign for eco-evo folks that they don't mention ecology and evolution explicitly? Trying to decide whether it is worth applying since they are requesting letters up front x2 3) that's weird. They just mention opportunities for life sciences research (human) 4) Purdue Biology alumni here. They have EEB major so it is odd that they don't mention ecoevo. Should we take 'but is not limited to" as a face value, or is it a bad vibe for ecoevo job applicants? 5) I heard from a Purdue EEB faculty member that it is unlikely they will get a hire from this search (though obviously there's a chance). 6) Does anyone have any insights into whether references are needed up front? x2 (7) yeah, i really don't know about the letters.. are folks having their references send them now? 3

11/4/22 10:08University of WyomingWyomingComputational Evolutionary Biology (part of cluster hire in applications of AI/ML)11/30/2022 ProfTenure Track11/4/22 10:09This is a cluster hire in the new School of Computing with three positions available. Any of them could be appropriate for candidates in ecology and evolutionary biology, but sub-ads of particular interest are for a Computational Evolutionary Biologist (through partnership with the Botany Department) and wildlife/behavior/evolution/ecology positions (through partnership with the Department of Zoology and Physiology, or with the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources). Departments are competing internally for these positions (i.e. not every department will get a position). All positions need to demonstrate innovation in the application of AI/ML and Big Data to questions of interest. Tenure home will be in the School of Computing, but faculty will have strong affiliation with partnering departments.
