4/17/2021 14:30:58University of Toronto ScarboroughCanadaDirector of Institute for Environment, Conservation & Sustainability Research 5/25/2021 / Full ProfTenure Track4/19/21 17:571) Is this one even worth applying to for early stage post-docs (<2-3 yrs post-PhD)? From reading the job description it does look like they're looking for someone with prof experience, as a director of a new institute I suppose it would make sense that they might be looking for someone with more administrative experience. With the job market so competitive I'm just not sure this one is worth it to put in the effort for, even though my research would be a good fit....2) The ad says they seek candidates with an established international reputation. As a post-doc, you might not have obtained that level of prominence? It's certainly possible, of course, but, on average, those "experts" will have a few years at the assistant level under their belt, I imagine. 3) Your research may be a good fit but as you note they are looking for much more than a researcher. I wouldn't bother - can't imagine anyone would consider an early postdoc for a director of an institute 1 again) yep seems pretty obvious in retrospect, definitely not applicable to my situation. Thanks for the feedback! I guess I'm just desperate haha

The department has both undergraduate and graduate research programs, including MSc. programs in Integrative Genomics and in Sustainability... BHSU offers a lot to organismal biologists based on its location, partnerships with state and national agencies, funding opportunities targetting historically under-funded states (NSF EPSCoR and NIH IMBRE), a course curriculum that includes a lot of traditional courses (“-ology” courses that are extinct at many institutions), and student population pursuing careers in resource management and conservation...

What are they expecting to see here for a short-term lecturer position? 2) A twitter post from a department member seemed to imply this could become permanent. No idea what 'could' really means here though. 3) 1 again - I saw that post as well and was confused if POC meant 'proof of concept' or 'person of color'...4) Or 'potential of continuation?'. So unclear! 5) Some VAP positions do provide some research support. Some of that may be optional for people who want to stay research active during a VAP. During my VAP I received lab space and a smaller intramural grant for research funding and was able to work with two independent study students. Similar SLAC situation to Mount Holyoke. 2) glad I wasn't the only one confused by what POC meant in that context! I assumed 'person of color', but wasn't clear at all how that was relevant to whether or not this could become a permanent job. 3) the POC acronym use was definitely confusing... WRT the research interest statement request -- I have seen these more often requested this year for VAPs than in previous years... I suspect it's because hiring freezes are ending without time for a full search, but depts are hoping to get a sense of long-term potential from the VAP pool so that their job is easier when the full search happens.1

When reading you have to replace a few select "and"s with "or"s, otherwise no one in the history of the world is qualified for this position. 2) agreed, no one is an expert in that many things

Or slightly low? 1) seems about on par with other UK lecturer salaries (excepting London, perhaps, which is expensive). 2) I have always wondered about UK salaries. The high end of this salary range is about $54,000. So, how does that work? Even with dual income, it seems like it would be a stretch to live a middle class life (with kids) on this salary in the UK. What am I missing? Is there a housing allowance or something? 3) I did my PhD in the UK (I'm American) and this salary range is about right. Cost of living is considerably lower for a number of reasons (tho this may change if the pound slides with Brexit and CoL rises). There is a similar ad running for Bangor (in Wales) that is a bit less than this range (it's £33-40k). Academic salaries are just less than what some of us might be used to in N America. 4) Perhaps to bear in mind, UK is less socialist than some european countries, but there are a lot of common benefits that make living more affordable than in the US (healthcare, child subsidies etc). Also, most universities are public and subsidised by the government -- in general, in teaching budget and in salaries, the goal is to reduce costs to the government and those paying the tuition fee (UK universities can charge students up to 9,250 pounds a year... International students also pay higher fees and subsidise 'home' students)

They are usually very specific about what they are looking for, so "Any other field" applicants should take that with a grain of salt 3) Good to know, thanks! 4) FWIW, OIST campus is subtropical paradise but it's in the middle of nowhere. Also, I've heard they can be very very stringent in granting tenure. They're awash in money though. 4) I was a postdoc at OIST. Their tenure rate is similar to typical R1 universities and the process seems quite fair (they even fly external reviewers out for private meetings with students and postdocs). During my 3 years there I only heard of one tenure denial.4
