It's nice to see jobs whenever they come, but I'm curious what it's related to. 2) I feel like the UK doesn't really have a 'cycle'... jobs just pop up when they pop up and you have like 2 days to accept them if offered. 3) All of the UK jobs I've applied to have been posted in late spring/early summer. They don't follow the NA job cycle, as far as I can tell.

Expect a salary above 100-115 k 2) Seems like it would be better to phrase as years post PhD, but this may be dictated by the school. 3) switzerland is moving towards 'effective years of full time work post phd' so you could easily argue for an extension if you have taken mat leave but the hard age limits are still a thing in CH. 4) current postdoc at ETH here: they take the age rule particuarly seriously; other Swiss universities are more lenient. Definitely worth contacting Faculty Affairs to ask about your personal situation, though. Maternity leave, as long as post-PhD, definitely counts, as do some other things. And yeah, my guess is pay would be like 130-140K. 5) Also ETH postdoc, agree with #4. 6) Wow, how incredibly ageist! X2

(serious question, not snarky) Seem to be few houses under half a million. 6) former longtime Portland resident here - that salary is not commensurate to the cost of living there x2 7) This would be difficult if your partner didn't also work. 8) How do you know the salary? Nothing on the job ad and when I searched for Assistant Prof salary there it looked like more? 9) @8, what was the salary you saw posted then? 10) 11) does anyone know the teaching load for this position? - didn't see it listed in the ad 12) I believe it's "rotating slate of five lecture or lab courses per academic year" but honestly don't know enough about PUIs to know exactly what that means. 13) @10, that site is incredibly inflated - maybe they adjust all salaries to 12-month, even though most are 9-month? Whatever the reason, they say the average Asst Prof salary at my school is $85k, but its actually ~$65k. The best source I know is the Chronicle of Higher Ed Faculty Salary Survey (just google it). 14) I always liked the AAUP survey tool ( It has been right on the money (zing!) the times I needed that info. @11&12, from my PUI expeience, five courses/labs usually means a 3-2 load. Everything that takes 3 hours per week counts as 1 so it can be a course+lab one semester, and the same + a single lecture the next. Keep in mind some institutions have their own way to describe load. During interviews ALWAYS ASK for how your ACTUAL schedule for the 1st Fall and Spring will be like. 15) FYI: The salaries reported on the AAUP page are for Lewis & Clark State College in Lewiston, ID; so, those are salaries at a different university 16) The Chronicle faculty salary database lists Lewis & Clark average assistant prof salary at $68k. It does seem unusually low compared to a handful of other comparably ranked/sized/funded colleges I looked up, especially when you factor in the local cost of living. 17) yeah that salary is nuts for SW Portland

This does not seem to be a real advertisement, though I'd love to be proven incorrect. 2) they had a open call for this position a few months ago wiht instructions for applicants to email the contact I assume for initial screening. 3) Many federal govt jobs at this level have short open windows and limits on applications. The fact that there will be an opening is usually well advertised ahead of time, but then there is a short period to actually submit your application. 4) Agree, especially with USFS. There was one very similar in the southeastern region earlier in the year. 5) This is not unusual at all for federal hiring. Honestly in these situations it is much more parismonious to assume that federal hiring practices place some very stringent constraints on how and when postings come open, that hiring managers have very little control over how things go, and that folks are trying to make the most of a hiring system that was not designed to for PhD-level research scientist positions. Job searches in the federal government look very different from the academic environment. 6) My PI at the USDA said that any job posted for less than a week wasn't "real" and was usually created as a way to bump a person to a higher "promotion potential" GS series. Like if a person was capped at a GS 10, they would create a new position that was a GS 11-12 and only open it for 3 days so that person could slide in. It's interesting that that advice might not be universal across government agencies. My postdoc there was also only open for a few days technically, but that was because he had advertised elsewhere and chosen me, then I had to apply through USAjobs in a 3 day window. 7) @6, but couldn't they then close it to the public and only open to career transition? unless there is some agency rule about GS 13+ being open to the public. Regardless, the limit on applications does look like this was some sort of internal/already decided hire. 8) If this was truly an internal hire it would not be open to the public 9) My federal agency has to fight HR to get USAjobs postings open for a reasonable length of time; the default is quite short, even when there's no internal candidate. We were recently quite pleased to get a 14-day window. 10) The time and # of applicants accepted is all HR. My USFS research position was open for 5 days or up to 30 applicants, whichever came first. I assumed internal hire as well, but got the job without any federal experience. Always apply if you think you're qualfiied.2

Did that hire fall through? Job is not actually posted at the URL listed.... 3) I can't imagine why anyone would apply for these visiting positions. It just shows these colleges that it's ok not to invest in hiring faculty full-time 4) Or it shows that they need someone to cover a course for a year...and all kinds of reasons people might apply. 5) These positions are great for people looking into PUI/SLAC careers. Better stepping stone than a PostDoc for most of those jobs. 6) @4 more accurately, it shows that they are running under-staffed and are forced to cover for internal shortages through exploitative short-term contracts that are probably not as well compensated as the person being replaced for the year. 7) @6 and 4 -- it's certainly worth checking into to avoid those traps but I've held a VP at PUI that put me on pay scale as TT faculty and I filled gaps due to sabbatical and NSF program officer assignments. Students needed and/or planned for those classes to be available. with a small faculty being down even 1-2 profs for a year causes all sort of scheduling havoc. 8) faculty member in the dept here - we actually have a second record sized incoming class and have someone leaving, so this is a last minute VAP search. This is a FANTASTIC place to work. Manageable teaching load, wonderful colleagues, possibility of - and support for - research for visitors, great students. 9) I agree with #3’s comments… The fact that the department expects people to quickly uproot their lives for (I’m assuming, based on the disappointing lack of information) a one-year gig with no stability seems to go against the idea of them being supportive to visitors. The best way to support early-career academics is to not take advantage of their desperation in this abhorrent market and dangle these short-term jobs before them. How on earth is someone supposed to teach/mentor, pursue their own research/publish, and still churn out applications to hopefully land something permanent in the 2022-2023 cycle? 10) Not to mention they'll mostly be submitting applications in approximately their first month at this job so it's not like the experience can be much help in the single job cycle you might get while there. 11) From personal experience, these jobs may help you get a TT position but not at a place like this. High-ranked SLACs want the prestige that comes from someone doing a productive research post doc, securing grant funding, and publishing papers. These positions would be better if there was a remote chance they would hire one of their own VAPs.

4/27/2022 11:40:22University of AmsterdamNetherlandsEvolutionary Ecology5/20/2022 ProfTenure Track6/5/22 9:201) Seems to be a readd of the assistant prof position from 2021, which was not filled yet. Last time there was rumour about an internal candidate. 2) I'm fairly sure that the internal candidate for last year's position got the job. This is probably a new position. 3) Honest questions: is this a liveable wage? A gross salary of 3800/month with 37% taxes is barely 2400 euros a month...4) The internal candidate did get the last job and this is a new position. As for living wage, 3800/month is the lowest end of the pay scale and you get a 30% tax deduction clause for 5 years (if you're an immigrant going into the Netherlands). It should also be noted that the Netherlands pays you for 14 months per year (an extra month for holiday pay and an extra month for end of year bonus) with an automatic 2-3% pay increase per year and increase in payscale on top. So if you're the lowest possible pay bracket you make 53,200 euros per year which is more than enough. You have to remember that you'll likely live within a 20 minute cycle to the campus and almost everyone here cycles, which saves you an immense amount. Yes, I currently work in Dutch Academia! 5) Plus you don't spend inordinate amounts to send your kids to college, and get government pension, healtchare is cheaper, etc..etc...etc... 6) Unless you want to send your kids to the local international school (not saying you should, just something to consider) 7) Well that applies for any job, life anywhere will be more expensive if your kids go to private school.... 8) Perhaps more relevant if applicants are international. 9) That also applies to all postings here (a considerable number of people here are not from the countries they are applying for) 10) @4 Ah, the internal candidate from last time is finally listed as assistant prof on the webpage ;)... 11) invite to zoom interview 6/1 12) Just heard that they received about 70 applications6

But there will be people on here who say "I applied late and still got the job!" So ... if it's your dream job why not, but I wouldn't expect anything if it were me. 3) I might counter that and say yes. Someone came and posted this on here 10 days after the best consideration date. It could have been someone on the search committee because they have a small applicant pool. 4) I am the person who posted this job here - I am not on the serch committee or affiliated with this university, but I saw the job posting and wanted to share it here.

I just learned about it last week and am applying now. 9) Only requires cover letter, CV, transcript (no separate research/teaching/diversity statements). 10) conducted a Zoom interview this week (x2). x3, wish I had found this page before my Zoom screening interview! 11) Anyone hear anything / receive any updates / campus invite? 12) invited to on-campus interview @12 Congrats!! What day did you get notified that you got a campus interview? I'm wondering if I still have a chance... 13) 12 here, notified around May 20th 14) @12 Congrats again and good luck! And I appreciate the reply, cause coincidentally I emailed the search chair for an update on May 20 (2 weeks after my Zoom interview) and he ghosted me (still hasn't replied). 15) Applied around 1 May and have sent a couple follow-up emails; crickets. 16) 3 days scheduled for candidate research seminars in June. Guessing if you (like me) haven't heard from search committee there is no good news coming your (or my) way. 17) @16 Where did you see these seminars scheduled?5

4/20/2022 11:52:22University of WyomingWyomingAnimal Biology5/15/2022 Instructional ProfessorTenure Track4/26/22 17:33Required to have a driver's license?? What's the point of that, and is that even a legal requirement?? I think I would be a good fit for the job, but I dont have a drivers license, so...? 1) When I've seen that requirment for teaching its because of field trips, but that may not be the case here 2). Sometimes they are used for employment eligibility verification and/or required for all state employees. If you are a fit otherwise never hurts to ask 3) While it may be silly to require a DL for a job at UW, if you don't have one ...Laramie is not gonna be a fun place to live lol. x3 4) UW has gone through several nasty budget cycles and like 5 presidents in the past decade or so, and the financial management system is a nightmare, but the outdoor amenities are nearly unparalleled imo and the people across all the EEB-adjacent departments are fantastic. I personally would work there in a heartbeat, but it is not for everyone. 5) I work at UW and #4 is pretty spot on. It's a good spot to be an ecologist even if the administration has been volatile and sub-par. Awesome colleagues. Also I would not want to live here if I did not have a drivers license... everything in town is very close and walkable/bikeable but getting outside requires driving and is a major draw to living here. Lots of courses go on field trips, so could be related to job duties too. I think they want these people to teach field ecology and that would definitely involve car transport. 6) @ OP so just get a driver's license? If the job requires driving and you can't do that, you can't do the job (recognized disability(s) aside). 7) It's like saying vegetarians are welcomed, but meat-eating required for job. 8) @7 except it's not implausible that taking students on field trips is a required part of the job of teaching intro bio labs 9) OP here. Thank you, #7! #6, i dont think you know how much it costs to get a drivers license in my state 10) @OP, just apply and get your DL if you get the job. 11) Not sure if people realize some of us are more passionate about not driving than vegetarians are about not eating meat. It's one of the biggest thing you can do (stop the automobile romance) for societal change to combat global warming. I routinely biked a good distance with a trailer full of equipment in the snow - not that I am saying everyone should (what about public transport?) but then don't make driving an academic job requirement. I'll drive - over my dead body - but that's literally impossible. 12) I'm EXTREMELY sympathetic to the non-driver position but I still don't think that it's a big deal that it's in the job description. Just apply, see if you're otherwise a good fit, and then see if driving is actually an integral part of the job (eg student fieldwork) or if it's negotiable. If it's non-negotiable then, well, it's not a good fit, as things can be a bad fit for any number of reasons. 13). If you don't want to drive for any reason, then this position is probably not a good fit for you. Alternatively, if you are willing to consider that what you do 90% of the time (aka not drive) is more important than the few times you might drive as part of your duties as an instructor of the course, then go ahead and apply.

It reads like a USFWS or USGS position (but doesn't seem to actually be a government job), but they pay is kind of low and it seems to be through UI. It says the person would mentor students, but there's no teaching. hm. 2) Can't speak to how lab manager-y this will be, but can confirm it is based at UI and will be located on Moscow, ID campus. Would be worth reaching out the the PI - Lisette Waits.

X7. 3) This is almost certainly to cover someone's courses due to something like illness or a last-minute change in job where the college wasn't allowed to hire a longer-term replacement. Calling it predatory seems a bit unfair as departments are often stuck in terms of hiring. There is probably someone on here who would appreciate a position like this; not every job posted is for every single person on here x4 4) I'm sure they have some reason and someone will take it, but it is still predatory and the department should be ashamed to post it. I would be embarassed if I was a prof in the department. 5) It's ok, I'm sure the department would also be ashamed to have you and your lack of understanding that they can't control these situations. 6) also, this is not a job that someone moves to MA for. this is a part time job that someone local takes to make some extra money
