They filled it as a VAP last year. 4) Humboldt often hires VAP's and then transitions them into faculty BUT it's not a guaranteed spot. The spatial wildlife ecologist position last year went to someone that wasn't the VAP from the previous year. 5) This position is a replacement for a mammalogist that was hired as a curator at the NMNH a couple years ago.1

Geesh. @3) What is standard starting salary for similar kind of positions, I am just curious. (4) You can compare here: 4) I’m a search committee member. The AAUP salary data from 2019-2020 lists the average salary for an assistant professor at a public baccalaureate institution at 68K, 72K for master’s level. (Our department doesn’t offer graduate degrees, but some programs on campus do.) To provide some context, Zillow lists the average home price for our zip code at 184K, which is lower than most college towns in Colorado. @4 from 3) Thank you. This is helpful!

I agree though this should really stop. 3) @2 I've noticed that LOR are asked for in R2 and MS only programs, probably as way to ensure that their pool does not include people who are not really interested in the position and will leave ASAP. I am targeting these institutions since I prefer to work there and am lucky my writers are understanding. 4) To be fair a lot of big R1s that probs got a lot of applications also asked for them up front this year as well (e.g. USC, Toronto)

I think this one comes with a funded PhD student and probably a small cash start-up. I should note that Tjärnö (where the position is based) has a shared fully equipped molecular lab.4) Tjarno is a fantastic and beautiful place!!! If you do coastal marine work this place is awesome. 5) I will second that Tjärnö is a beautiful place, but for those who like big cities, do be aware that it is quite a small place, 6) close-to-nothing start up in my experience, very little support

2/5/2021 13:27:46Bennington CollegeVermontEcology/Evolutionary Biology (supporting biological and environmental sciences programs)3/15/2021 Term2/18/21 21:202 year visiting position. Will teach 4-5 course per year. 2) Search chair here, let me know if you have questions – admin is fixing "part-time"; job is full-time. 3) @2, how can we contact you? Doesn't look like there's any contact information with the job posting... 4) @3, #2 here. Like many ads, we don't post a specific person's email to contact, but I am happy to answer any questions right here. 5) #3 again — thank you @2! I'm wondering if you could speak more specifically than the posting about what the search committee is looking for: I see a clear desire for someone who can teach GIS, and some other broad catigories for teaching, but if there are specific classes that the committee is hoping the successful candidate can teach, that would be really helpful to know. Similarly, I'm curious if there are research subjects that are preferred (I do fungal ecology, working on plant-fungal interactions with a conservation ecology bent). Lastly, given the strong conservation bent to my research and outreach activities, I'm curious if the college’s environmental studies program is interested in conservation-oriented courses. 6) There is a Fungus amongus! @ #3/5 I have the same exact set of questions. How imperative is GIS? @2? 7)@3 @6, #2 here. We aren’t looking for specific classes, per se, but if an applicant purposes class that are not under the broad eco/evo umbrella, they won’t get far. GIS is a plus (not a deal breaker), Our GIS is going on sebbatical. Bennington is a unique school. Its faculty have a lot of freedom in their course offerings. Courses tend to be integrative and highly experiential/student-centered. Students get an education that mirrors a graduate program in many respects. Bennington is small. We have a cell/molec person and an integrative organismal person; we need someone to fill the eco/evo niche, the specifics of that niche are up to the applicants. Conservation? Fungus-plant interactions? That sounds interesting; apply and tell us more. 8) at what point in the search process will references be contacted? 9) @8, #2 here, TBD, but not before the close of the application period. @all, we intend to advertise for a permanant eco/evo faculty member to start Fall 2023. The candidate that fills this role will be in a unique position to apply for the permanant job. 10) @2 thanks for all this helpful information! 11) Echoing the sentiments of @10, it's refreshing to see open communication from a search committee. I see that exising eco-evo classes are terrestrial-focused and the job ad mentions plant science; would aquatic folks be considered equally or is there a true preference toward terrestrial ecologists? 12) @11, #2 here. We welcome all types to apply. There is no preference for terrestrial folks. I definantly encourge aquatic-focused ecologists to apply. 13)@2/12 -- thanks!

2/4/2021 8:31:36Penn State UniversityPennsylvaniaVarious1/15/2021 OpenTenure Track2/28/21 13:08The Eberly College of Science, at the Pennsylvania State University, University Park campus, invites outstanding applicants for tenured/tenure-track faculty appointments in the areas of molecular and chemical biology, systems biology, biological physics, astrobiology and astrochemistry in the following departments: Astronomy & Astophysics, Biology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Application date is rolling. Was told that this was a broad search and goes beyond what is listed in the ad. 1) Thanks for posting this after the review date!!! I'm sure people would luv to talk more about this after the fact that you cant apply to it anymore :) 2) @1. That's not very nice and unnecessary. I believe it says in the notes that the application date is rolling. 3). the purpose of this site is communication. it should not be your primary, secondary, or even tertiary choice to find jobs. it is mostly so we know a job was filled so we can make better decisions as our search progresses. 4) Actually @3 this site is awesome for finding jobs 5) Actually @4, it is a great place for that, but it is nobody's responsability to post jobs in a timely manner, so no one should be complaining a job got posted "too late." If you didn't find it early enough thats your fault! 5) Excuse my ignorance but honestly what other job boards are so comprehensive? I mean this in earnest. This is absolutely the first place I check 6) I absolutely use this as one of my primary sources for finding relevant job postings - and I think it is fair that people are pissed that others don't feel like sharing a job before the deadline and then still want to get the benefits of this board and post after a deadline (like info about how things are going), but that is just how I feel about it :-) x14) This job was adversited on social media after the date by someone at Penn. They were asking people to consider applying. The review date is not the close date, as the ad specifically points out. Sorry if this didn't reach every one before the review date, but nothing is stopping you from applying. 5 again) Agreed that this is a great resource but lets not assume that people post it past the deadline maliciously. It is no one's responsability to post anything here; we are not owed any sort of timely open job feed because we happen to use this site. x3 ... 7) It's not like universities advertise their open positions on weird Reddit boards. There are a few main places they post and you can sign up for e-mail updates. It's really not that hard to find positions in ways that don't depend on altruism. Also, you are getting mad at the person who posted the job...what about everyone else who saw it and didn't post? x2 8) I post beyond the deadline because I want to get updates but I want as few people as possible to apply for the job so I have a better chance 9) At least you're honest @8 10) I get angry at myself for missing out on positions out of not looking at acutal job boards, but project my frustration onto those who did find positios and posted them late. 11) Perhaps there is a place we can share job boards and list servs so we don't unintionally gatekeep from others who may not have advisors who can help them find them (all mine knew was societies and evoldir)? That seems like a better solution than dragging each other. AP) @11, check out our Links tab. 12) @11 I just added some search tools for jobs to the bottom of the Links page. 6) Thanks for sharing those resources! Good luck out there everyone! 13) Just my opinion but actions like intentionally not posting/sharing jobs so other people don't apply and you improve your own chances are part of the reason that academic science has historically been an exclusive and gatekeepy space; sharing widely and helping other people have a decent shot at finding jobs that are a good fit for them is one way we can make science better for everyone. 14) any updates?3
