1/25/2021 12:57:22San Diego State UniversityCaliforniaComputational Biology2/15/2021 ProfTenure Track1/26/21 15:48The interfolio link does not seem to specify whether the position is tenure track, but the listing on the CSU careers website specifies that it is tenure track: 1) If you go on interfolio theres no where to add cover letter or you diversity statement, both which are required to add.... hmmm...... 2) Has anyone tried emailing one of the chairs? 2) Not surprised on the technology front. I used to work here. The department is interesting. In compulation biology, you have a few great folks to collaborate with, especially if you are interested in working with folks who do metagenomics (e.g., Forest Rohwer). 3) What do you mean by saying the department is interesting? thanks 4) my sense is it has gotten a bit better since I left, but it is an aging department that doesn't hold onto female faculty members well. That being said, the younger faculty that are there are good and generally working to make the place better. The grad programs are also weird, they are joint with the UC system. Its also a CSU so it have limited resources to pay students so stipids are really low (especially when you have to live in SD), the MS students take home 700ish a month and phds only get aeound 1200. 5) Thanks so much for the information, yes the stipend sounds really poor in terms of living cost in CA (6) RE: joint graduate programs. Depending on the perspective of the graduate student, the flexibility of the advisor, and the UC campus that is joint with the specific-grad program, the joint doctoral programs can actually be a serious advantage. Students essentially get two different sets of faculty, graduate cohort, and resources at their disposal. Of course there are hurdles to overcome and it is not for everyone, but to say the programs are "weird" without giving any context is a bit of a disservice. Also, not sure where those stipend numbers are coming from in (4), that is far lower than stipends are currently, at least in some graduate programs. 7) I really don't see a great benefit to students who already make paltry salaries being forced to move from SD to Davis and then back to SD within the span of two years. Seems like a pretty major hurdle. 5) so is this the joint program with Davis? Does that mean this faculty position has any connection with Davis or just the future students? 8) The Ecology Ph.D. program is joint with UC Davis, CMB is joint with UC San Diego, and Evolutionary Biology is joint with UC Riverside. I'm not sure where this position stands in terms of where students would go, but UC San Diego is a short drive up I-5 and requires no move. You could potentially span multiple program areas, but ask the committee. Also, regarding the student support, you can always increase via your grants. I'm not sure if those numbers above are correct. A great group of faculty to be your colleagues and the teacher-scholar model makes SDSU Biology. 9) Discussion of department aside, has anyone figured out how to submit a full applicaton? I tried emailing interfolio but haven't gotten response. No one listed on the ad to ask questions either.1

It's very strange if it is really meant as a new hire. 4) I'd suggest they're starting a core, but Kennesaw seems like an odd place for that. Second thought is that person is moving on and they want to recoup/simplify startup by replacing them with the same thing.

(w/ ability to teach GIS)2/8/2021 ProfTenure Track1/26/21 10:53**presently, the posting mistakenly states that one of the preferred qualifications is "at least one year of experience at the rank of an Assistant Professor." This is NOT accurate, and will be corrected soon. 2) Ugh, please stop requiring letters of rec during the initial interview stage. It is a waste of everyone's time x6 3) this is the search chair. I know it can be frustrating as an applicant to ask for letters just to apply for some jobs. If you are interested but unsure if the application is worth the effort, send me an email and perhaps I can address some of your uncertainties and help you get to know the university better, etc. 4) Then why ask for them?1

12/21/2020 21:12:16University of New HampshireNew HampshireCoastal Resilience and Restoration Ecology1/29/2021 ProfTenure Track1/26/21 15:081) I just interviewed here for a different position. Great department with great people 2) Any insight about the relationship between this dept and the one for the micro job below? 3) (1) here - certainly collaborations between the two departments but they are seperate in many of their activites. I'm sure someone who currently works in the department could provide more insight (4) This seems like a very targeted ad...(5) It's not uncommon for state university systems with smaller budgets to have more targeted ads, because of the work it takes to justify such a position, especially in tough economic times. I say this as somone from a peer institution who has been on search committees for similarly targeted ads; it's not necessarily an indication of an inside here. (6) The department is very much looking for the best person for the job. Even if you don't hit all the points on this list, please apply! 7) Are letters requested immediately or after a first round of reviews? 8) From what I understand, letters upfront. 9) Why are letters requested up front if this position is to be hired at the Associate Professor level? This seems like a big burden for colleagues....
