She is working with the moderator to get the date changed on this spreadsheet. 2) She should get it changed on UGA's job site first.. 3) what's the reason for the search so late in the job season? and is the department looking for someone trained as a oceangrapher, as that seems to be the focus of current faculty research and grad student training. 1) the position is advertised now because this is when the funding was approved; Marine Sciences is definitely not a department of only oceanographers, it's very interdisciplinary and very welcoming, and Athens is great.

But I agree, this is an odd timeline... does anyone from within now anything about this? 9) I don't have any inside information regarding this position, but different places have different timeline requirements driven by HR - for example, where I am, we need to have the job posted for 30 days before we are allowed to begin review. It's possible that this has a much lower time requirement. 10) The description is my exact field of study, but I can't think of any peers doing this kind of stuff who have spouses at UChicago.

This is the dark underside of Germany academia, they (PIs) will cut up positions to increase their overall productivity. So, imagine having a part time assistant professor position for 4 years (and build up a team as group leader) with the expected output (several papers per year) so you can get another job somewhere, on half the income. 3) @2 I assumed that was as a possible accomodation for dual-career couples. 4) could be, but two people splitting one salary is pretty bad. That would assume that dual career couples would be studying behavior, which is probably pretty rare 5) Not at all rare! I agree two people with one salary sucks, but one salary with your partner not having a position at all (in the same place) is even worse. Two low paying positions far apart means double the housing costs and a ton of travel costs and is impossible if you have kids. Dual-career postdoc stage just sucks all this at least seems like it could be a modest improvement. 6) the problem is that with half a salary, you'll contribute half to your retirement but will need full retirement when you do retire. So, this sucks. Either live apart so you won't starve when you retire or end up having a mediocre retirement. And yes, retirement in Germany is pretty bad. You think Social Security in the US is bad, look at what the Germans offer. 7) Hi all, German expat here. The MPG group leader positions are highly coveted and definitely not to be split between people. However there's no tenure track so they are more like a postdoc fellowship than a professorship. If you plan to stay in Germany long-term it's just another round of playing the lottery but you have better chances afterwards. Not sure if people transitioned out from there into professorships in other countries easily, it might happen.

If you're not a practicing Catholic (or don't live by those "values", e.g. lgbtq, takes birth control, etc) does that mean not to even bother applying??? 2) I don't think that's the case. There's a very helpful resource on "The Professor is in" - you may wish to check it out. You may also wish to read the mission statement of the school - most of them explicitly make commitments to diversity and there are non-Catholics on the faculty. 3) Thank you so much, 2! I have been wondering this about other schools as well 4) The school does ask for a written response to their Mission Statement, but I think that you can have similar values even if you are an atheist, though some adverts for other schools do specifically say that you have to be a practicing [whatever religion] . Religion is not a requisit to being a good and moral person. I won't mention Christ in any of my materials and will run for the door if they start thumping on books! 5) received email asking for written response to 5 questions related to their mission and to have recommendation letters sent in as well. 1

Asst / Assoc ProfTenure Track1/17/2020 4:38:081) FYI I have heard that this department is very toxic especially to women and minorities. 2) Are you able to elaborate on this? (without naming names, of course). As a female potential applicant, I am sad to hear this. 3) I've heard this too. I don't know any specifics, but I've seen a lot of cringy expressions when this department comes up in conversation with Yale faculty/students/alumni. x3 4) #2 here, thanks for this info X 2 5) #1 here. What I know is that my collegue who did his postdoc there said the female faculty there when he was there were miserable and clearly were discriminated against by some of the older male faculty. With several great female ecologists being denied tenure. 5) Did my grad work in this department - can confirm the comments above are accurate. This can be a very hard place to be for anyone but particularly researchers from underepresented backgrounds 6) Gave a talk at Yale a few years back and multiple women met with me individually and every single one talked about a pervasive toxic culture of sexism at Yale. It was really heart-breaking. 7) Can people please clarify for comments 1) to 6) whether they are talking about the Yale EEB department, or the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (i.e. FES), which is a stand-alone professional school and where this job position is to be based. I ask because in the last decade, the only female ecologists denied tenure have been in EEB, and in fact historically many ecologists instead were supported in FES. Thanks! 8) my guess is that 1-6 are salty people who heard unsubstantiated stuff about EEB and just felt like spreading it once they saw the "Yale" name. The truth is that its a pretty nice place to do research, especially with all the internal funding they have. 9) I'm #6, and I'm not a "salty person repeating unsubstantiated stuff." Hence my specifying I was invited to give a talk, and was alarmed by the number of women basically using our one-on-ones to workshop issues. And these were women in EEB and FES. 10) I've heard from a few people that they're trying to turn things around and they've made some female hires in the past few years, both post- and pre-tenure. 11) #8's slanderous comments are the kind of thing that perpetuates these situations. 12) These comments pertain way more to EEB than FES. 13) I can't speak for the faculty experience, but as a postdoc at FES I had senior faculty mentors who were real allies to young scholars, particularly young female faculty with families. Of course there is lots of work to be done to make it a more inclusive environment, but no more than most other institutions, and academia more broadly.

Asst ProfTenure Track12/26/2019 4:24:28I would not interpret this ad so narrowly as being about adaptation. It says seeking folks "who use integrative approaches to investigate the underlying mechanisms for responses of marine organisms to environmental change. Research should connect organismal biology to global change issues, and may integrate multiple biological, spatial, and/or temporal scales." I am faculty in the dept and just confirmed with the search chair that the term "adaptation" was not in the job ad but rather was added by some other mods later when the ad was posted. Subject area should just be Marine Biology, and we're looking for folks who connect organismal biology with environmental change (interpreted broadly). 2) Could you expand on which type of organisms specifically - microbes, inverts, fish, mammals, or any/all? 3) 1 responding to 2: the position is in the School of Life Sciences, which was just created from the merger of the Zoology, Botany, and Mircobiology deparments.

"The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant discipline, including, but not limited to, statistics or biostatistics, economics, computer science, mathematics, physics, electric (and computer) engineering, linguistics." 2) Doesn't particuarly sound eco/evo, IMO. 3) Data sci jobs are posted here frequently. If you don't think it's relevant to you, don't apply 4) Agree with 2, data science jobs were never posted here before this year, and when they are, they are related to biology. This one seems to be somewhat related to biology, but in public health? 5) Data sci/ecoinformatics/bioinformatics/stats jobs have definitely been posted in this list in previous years. 6) I posted a DS job here and got a bunch of great applicants. Totally relevant as lots of eco evo people have awesome data skills! x5 7) Eco/evo people have lots of diverse skills. Under that rationale, just about any job becomes relevant. 8) Uh huh.... keep rationalizing

Rank OpenTenure Track1/10/2020 23:20:04Scholarship should include the field of soil science, restoration ecology, and the interaction between social and biophysical systems at the landscape scale. Some potential areas of specialization may include restoration/conservation/landscape ecology, soil remediation, and land management that connect terrestrial and hydrological systems with social systems. Research experience related to conservation and planning of natural areas, managed landscapes, and protected areas at landscape scales and geospatial analysis skills that connects biophysical and social datasets are preferred. Hiring at any level dependent on experience. 2) seems like this dept has had a bit of turnover in the past few years - anyone have any insight? 3) @2 I know someone who was there and left, but it was because her partner got a job in the midwest with a spousal hire ;

Asst ProfTenure Track1/21/2020 6:16:31They are asking for letters with the application. Expertise in climate change, sustainable land use, food production systems, watersheds, environmental health, energy 2) Is the name of the university Sewanee or The University of the South? Their "About Us" page doesn't help. 3) It may be both: Sewanee - The University of the South 4) I attended Sewanee....Sewanee is the name used by all those familar with the institution and University of the South is it's official name. 2) again. Thanks #4! 5) did anyone receive a confirmation once the references sent the letters to the email address in the job posting? 6) I never heard anything, no. 7) I did not receive a confirmation. My references sent the letters, but the portal still shows "letters pending". 6) again, the portal for me does not say pending anywhere. Maybe call? #5 again. I reached out to the chair. They are manually updating the portal after checking the letters and hence, taking time. 6) again, good to know they were responsive!! 8) @7, who is the search chair? Mine also says awaiting applications, though my writers have submitted the LOR 9) I reached out to the person mentioned in the job ad (someone named Kristen?) It happened to me too. My references submitted the letters and it showed awaiting letters until recently. I wrote to her and she confirmed that they are going slow since they are manually checking the letters and updating the portal (similar to what #5 said). 10) New poster here. I just checked my portal status updated to "In review". But, one extremely strange thing is that I can view all the letters that my references emailed to them directly. I am surprised the university is not holding them confidential and made them viewable! 6) Oh geez, I hate reading letters people write for me! I can see mine as well. 7) #4 again....talked to my undergrad advisor at Sewanee and he mentioned that there is an internal candidate for this position. 8) <--- of course there is. 10) #9 :| that is strangely annoying. 11) Sorry if this question is stupid. Can someone please explain what is an internal candidate? I am applying from Asia and have very little experience in the US academic market. 12) In this case, it means that there is a Visiting Assistant Professor who is filling in for this position until they hire a permanent faculty member. This person has also applied for the position.5

The position asks for expertise in env. economics. AP) Yeah I deleted it before since it is explicitly economics, but what the heck...4) An apology to OP @2? (I am not the OP; just someone who is disappointed with the increasing levels of rudeness in this forum this year)x5 5) If stating facts is rudeness we are lost. 6) @5 the "fact" from @2 turned out to be false. I guess you are referring to "alternative facts" 7) It wasn't posted at the time 2 wrote it, so keep spinning your brilliant logic engine 6 8) The OP said they were certain that it was posted. There was no reason to doubt that unless #2 had another reason, which they didn't specify. I wouldn't qualify that conversation as rude, but I think it is polite to accept that they were wrong.

Asst ProfTenure Track1/18/2020 0:52:40Seems oddly similar to the one that they posted earlier this year... maybe failed search? "interdisciplinary applied scientist for a tenure track position directing our Master in Environmental Management (MEM) in Sustainable & Resilient Communities (SRC) program while focusing on collaborative strategies for regional, national, and global climate actions." 2) That pay though.. 3)Yeah...pretty dang low for a position with director in the title. Although add in the summer stipend and it's similar to starting salaries at other LA schools...3) #2 again. You are right. Is Gunnison an expensive place to live? 4) No idea, quick google search makes it seem about average. 4 hours from nearest major airport though. 5) More expensive than you might expect. Most houses over $300K. 6) Looks like you could get a 440 sqft house for $190K; that affordable right? ;) That salary is a joke, but as #3 pointed out, it is unfortunately similar to the starting salaries at other LA schools. 7) no wonder it was a failed search the first time around 8) ummm, isn't this school in Gunnison, CO? 9) former CO resident here - Gunnison is relatively expensive as far as COL (and only going up). decent housing is going to run easily into the $300s and healthcare is $$ in rural CO. it is nice there though if you're into the outdoors and don't need any city ammenities. nearest Target is like 1.5 hrs away. 10) #8 yes CO [LA=liberal arts] #8 haha, i should have guessed; feel stupid. Thanks #10! 11)#10 - don't feel stupid. Took me a minute to get that too 'cause usually I see SLAC. Was definitely wondering why salaries in Los Angeles were relevant lol1
