Two courses per semester and no research expectations? I don't get it. 3) I think it's four courses per semester (four full courses = eight semester long courses).

That is pretty in line with the job descriptions that are typical for posts called 'terrestrial ecology'. 3) Referring to section "in the area of ornithology or mammalogy in terrestrial environments "--having taught "terrestrial ecology multiple times, that typically means soil-plants-water-biogeochemistry etc. 4) That may be true for a class actually called 'terrestrial ecology', but in 5 years of watching job adds nearly every position advertised as a 'terrestrial ecology' position specifies that they want someone working on birds/mammals/reptiles. 5) Job add no longer available through the link provided.

"The selected candidate should be able to teach graduate courses such as conservation biology, ecology, vertebrate ecology, wildlife management, biostatistics, GIS, and/or landscape ecology, and will have the opportunity to develop and lead field study courses as well as courses in their area of expertise." 2) They really are trying to fill this position to start in less than 2 months!?! What does 'full time faculty' mean? Do they not have tenure? 3) Correct. I just checked and it looks like they do not have a tenure system at this school. 4) So, MS and PhD students are paying they're own way through this program in general? I come from a more traditional, biology background where students get paid a stipend. The program looks interesting, but how could I justify asking students to take out loans ($100K in tuition costs for PhD) just to work with me? Am I missing something? 5) It seems that the conservation science program only has an MS. It is pretty typical for students to pay with loans/aid, etc for an MS in biology, though I agree with you that it would be hard to justify the ethics of this as an advisor. 6) I must be sheltered - I've never met a MS student in the science not paid a stipend... Thanks 7) In many schools' "professional" programs - Yale/Duke Forestry, etc., most students are paying, even though many go onto ecological jobs or phds.

Asst ProfTT7/17/2018Annoyingly, there doesn't seem to be any closing date given. I guess it is rolling consideration? Does anyone have any insight on what would be a reasonable timeline for submission? 2) how are people handling the references? Seems like it is unclear whether their contact info gets entered into the system (where it says you can't use a prior supervisor...) or the three distinct letters are attached as "optional attachments" 1-3 at the end of the process. I'm guessing that we ignore the "no prior supervisor" part to enter our prior supervisor contact information? I doubt they want contact info for 3 non-supervisors and 3 non-confidential letters of rec. 3) I contacted the search chair and they want the letters as attachments. 2) odd, but ok. Thanks #3! 4) search chair got back to me and said the system will request letters. When I submitted my application there was a page that you can navigate to that shows the system requested the letters (with a timestamp) and whether or not your letter writers have submitted their letters yet. 5) Closing Date - I asked the search chair, and he said they would start reviewing apps in mid-October 3

Asst ProfTT7/17/20181) Is this a repeat of the search last year? 2) Does anyone know the teaching load expectations at this school? I assume 3/3? 3) My rejection from last year's organismal biology search says that they did hire someone. I don't know about Swarthmore specifically, but comparable SLACs typically have pretty low teaching loads comparable to R1s but with more undergraduate advising/research expectations. Definitely not 3/3. 4) This is a different search. Retirement replacement. The teaching load is pretty decent here (2/2) but labs count so it's 1 lecture/1 lab per semester. 5) That's pretty good for a SLAC. 6) also pay is extremely high for a SLAC!! This is a sweet gig 7) What's the pay range?

Assistant Professor, Teaching StreamTT7/16/2018Start date of July 1st 2019 2) according to the posting it seems like a teaching heavy position 3) Updated the cell to reflect that this is non-TT, not TT. 4) URL is throwing an error for me on 7/9 EDIT: Fixed URL. 5) Can someone explain to me why a teaching stream professor is not tenure track? 6) IDK, I emailed the chair to ask & will report back. 7) I asked the search committee and here is what they said "Yes, this is a tenure-track position. Teaching load is a more difficult one to answer in a meaningful way. Our courses are 12 weeks in length so they may be shorter than taught at some schools and we frequently have two hours of lecture per week (labs would be additional for some courses). This person will be expected to teach 5 such courses over the year, although this may be adjusted (reduced) depending on the nature of the course taught and associated administrative or course development load associated with it." 8) Would it be encouraged/allowed for someone in this position to do disipline research in addition to their heavy teaching load? 9) 3 again here. There are TWO positions at Toronto -- one is TT ('tenure stream'), one is non-TT ('teaching stream'). Teaching stream has job code 1802314; tenure stream has job code 1802289. This row seems to be an amalgamation of the two positions. 10) "Teaching stream" is what the uni calls their TT teaching focused positions. 7) here again, yes this is tenure-track but with a teaching focus (TT teaching stream). I talked to the chair about this.

Anyone know why it failed?3) From last years wiki, I saw that 150 people applied. I wonder why it failed. 4) heard they lost funding for position last year - good to see it reposted 5) Based on last year's wiki I guess it made it all the way to campus interviews before it failed due to funding?
