    Can anyone speak to University of Denvers failed search last year. Was it because they lost their candidate or was it funding issues?

    AnonymousNovember 16, 2019 at 11:57 AM
    I phone interviewed there last year. Based on that, and the comments on here from last year, it doesn't seem like they ever moved forward with onsites. We all got emails in like February saying the search had been cancelled. It may have been funding, but I know personally that they are filling a position from a professor who didn't get tenure, so I assume it shouldn't have been funding. Maybe they just weren't interested in us last year?"

    We (DU chemistry - although I only speak for my own opinion here) did have onsite interviews last year. There are allot of dynamics and opinions that go into making an offer or not to an individual after that point. I won't speak to the specifics of why we chose to cancel the search last year, but I can say that it was not due to money or anything of that nature. In a very simple sense it got very late in the game and we decided that we were willing to try again this year. A faculty search is a lot of work for everyone in the department, so that is not a flippant decision. This does not mean that there weren't good and very qualified candidates left in the pool at that point.

    For this years search we are conducting our first round of telephone interviews in early December. On sites will be scheduled for January. We may go back to the pool if we can't find someone through this initial process. It is hard on both sides of the table. Even at the initial stage I fought and pushed for candidates that we aren't phone interviewing next week. While not all applications are competitive, there are so many good applications that we don't get to move forward with.

I did not receive a "made it through" email aside from the immediate confirmation from Science Careers, but just yesterday (11/27) I received an email from GSU requesting that I fill out the demographics survey, so I would assume my application has advanced and I'm still in the running despite the difficult submission.

    3. The teaching demos take soooo long to prepare for. And every school's topic requests are unique.

      Delete
    4. My first one I prepared literally 4 days straight - this was due to some imposter syndrome and me thinking I wouldn't actually get any on-sites, so I didn't put any work into job talks before I got invitations for on-sites AND it was a pretty quick turnaround. I was very lucky that my teaching demos were the first few because those really do take a while to prepare for (thinking about potential questions, for example). By the end, it was mostly an hour or so refreshing myself on some details of each school the night before in the hotel. I applied to several different types/sizes of PUIs so the answers to their questions aren't always the same!

      Delete
    5. For my onsite interviews at PUIs, I would start to outline my plans and do some additional reading on the institution and faculty as soon as the interview was being planned (typically 2+ weeks before the actual interview). One week before the interview, I would actually create the first draft of my teaching demo. Leading up to the interview, I would revisit my teaching demo on a daily basis to make adjustments. About 2 or 3 days before my first interview, I made sure to practice my teaching demo in front of some peers to teach to an actual audience and receive honest feedback and suggestions. The day before my interview and with my teaching demo ready to go, I would make adjustments to my research presentation to customize to the department's research interests and facilities available. I do think it pays off to invest time in the teaching demo assuming you already have a polished research talk ready to go. Also it helps to memorize some general questions to help you get through some meetings when you are feeling exhausted and your interviewer keeps asking you for questions.

Both?

    3. I've had one on-campus interview (smaller R1 with extensive UG research program), so this experience is limited but here goes as best as I can remember:

      - What equipment/infrastructure is needed to succeed?
      - How many grad/UG students would I be looking to hire? Which of my projects would be suitable for UGs?
      - Funding, funding, funding! Where would I apply, which projects would be funded by which source, and what would I do if not funded initially.
      - I included a back-up idea slide for each project, and was asked to elaborate on them for a couple of projects.
      - What collaborations would I be seeking, both internally and externally?
      - What could I bring to the school that others did not (experience and equipment)?
      - What classes do I want to teach? How could my knowledge/experience broaden the UG/Grad experience at [redacted]?

      TBH more of the questions were based on the logistics of the position rather than a hardcore grilling of the science. Not every school will be like this of course, but as the position is to fill in a gap of expertise rather than add to a department strength, I also didn't expect too many in-detail questions.

      Remember that one of the main things they want to evaluate is whether you're a person they want to work with for the next 30ish years, so showing some personality and collegiality is not necessarily a bad thing. Hope that this helps a little, and good luck!!

      Delete
    4. @10:53
      1) Ish, but Gantt charts are probably too far. They want to know what you'll be working on first.
      2) Yes, how large of a group you intend to maintain.
      3) No, but they want to know what agencies.
      4) Yes, you wrote at least three proposals, didn't you? But keep in mind you only have 5-6 years to make them work, so they should all be related, and preferably your primary project is multifaceted (see point 1).
      5/6) They're more interested in seeing you funded, published, and tenured (see 1 and 4). This is more covered by point 2.
      7/8) Mostly scientific. Mine were mostly R1s. As per 2:10, I wouldn't call it a grilling, but the definitely were ensuring you knew your stuff.

      These can be heavily/sparsely attended. Expect people to come and go. Some might want an actual chalk talk, though it's mostly powerpoint. They should have a whiteboard available still. Expect questions you don't know the answer to and answer honestly, though the ability to think on your feet is a plus. You should walk away with improved proposals hopefully. It's about what you'd expect, and you have, of course, practiced this portion in front of your current peers.

      All of 2:10's points are good too. If you haven't thought about equipment/infrastructure, you should sit down, list it, and price it all out, both accessed equipment/services and what you'll need personally. They may not ask in the chalk talk, but the chair will want to know. Overall, I would reemphasize 2:10s last point. You are interviewing to join a new research group, comprised of 1st - 50th years. And they want someone they can get along with.

      Good luck, and happy Thanksgiving.

    2. Or, if you're intended to reapply next year, figure out who is on your institute's hiring committee and ask one or more of them to give you honest feedback on your application. Then get cracking on getting another paper out and improving your proposals. You could ask your postdoc or grad advisor too. There is generally a triage of applications based on number of publications. At the very least they could help you know if you're over that and into the crapshoot that is getting an interview. Good luck.

    4. I try to break it down into categories like a funding proposal would: equipment (>$5k), supplies/small equipment, salary, and travel. I do not include indirect costs since institutional policies are complex and it varies with funding source; they will factor indirect in if it applies to start up. You should get quotes for all significant equipment and list specific models you are considering. Then just shop around on laboratory suppliers for mid price stuff like balances, hot plates or whatever else your lab will need in the appropriate quantities. For supplies, $10k per researcher per year is kind of a safe value for continuing operations, but that would probably include replacement of things like stir plates etc.
      I always have vendors quote major items for my current institution, the companies you ask for quotes will ask where it is for, it is kind of optional whether you want to disclose that this is pricing for a startup budget or just vaguely that you are thinking about buying it. You don't need to bargain for the best price or anything at this stage, if anything, you want higher prices to make sure you will able to afford it when you are ready to purchase. Vendors will give you a lot of attention if you tell them it is for start up in my experience and they will pry about every detail.
      Salaries are tricky, the university may cover that with TA etc for the grad students and it most likely comes out of a different pool of funds than postdoc salary and equipment, so don't assume you could convert salary money to supplies, equipment, or travel.
      The budget is probably partially to test if you understand what it takes to get your independent research started, and partially to test whether they can afford it.

      Delete
    5. I think grad student salaries generally range from about $21k to $35k per year + you pay their tuition and benefits (health insurance etc). In general, all of that will be covered when they are on TA. They should generally TA for the first three semesters. Availability of TA slots also varies with the size of the undergraduate program. Tuition obviously varies widely. In California you usually pay in state tuition because most California schools require their students to become state residents. Other states and private you probably end up paying out of state tuition/private tuition.

      Delete
    6. You don't necessarily have to budget it exactly. You could simply state how many graduate students you would like support for. My offer guaranteed several TA lines for the first few years, and when you start multiplying lines x years x $50-$80k (stipend + tuition + fringe, as it would be for an RA), that adds up to a lot, quickly.

      For most chemistry departments, they have such a large teaching load that it is not a hardship for them to provide TA lines, they generally guarantee their students support through this mechanism. However, if you're in a biochemistry department or a med chem department where TA lines are not so readily available, you will want to make sure funding for student support is there.

  60. Has anybody ever emailed a search chair after not getting chosen for an on-site (after remote interview) to ask why? Or perhaps ways to improve?

    1. I emailed after my remote or onsite interviews failed. Only two professors replied with honest comments about my performance. I think it is nice to get some feedback, but not all faculty members want to give it (especially at an early stage).

    2. Having sat on both sides of the fence, I think this is very frustrating.
      Interviewers don't want to enter into "debates" with candidates on why their judgement was wrong, as well as the threat of lawsuits. Interviewers don't want to defend their prejudiced colleagues. Interviewers have already spent hundred odd hours screening packets, conducting interviews and site visits.

      But as a candidate it sucks. If you developed a good rapport with one prof, humbly ask for "how would you recommend improving my hireability as a candidate", and promise not to sue. .....

    1. For chemical engineering? I guess you have entered the short list.

    2. I was wondering the same. I thought maybe they just added the reference request field to the interfolio and emailed everyone who applied?

  64. Dear friends please do not get disappointed if you did not receive a call. The process many times involves throwing luck into wind. A person I know got an interview at Berkeley with just 2 first author publications, while another of my friends with 33 publications got one call from a top 100 university. Life is just like that

    1. That's certainly an accurate description of this process; however, it is probably little solace to somebody not getting any interviews.

  76. Where do you think departments and the dean typically stand on allocating funds for start up?

    From my undergrad/grad/postdoc institutions, it seemed like there was some incentive to keep costs under control and spending more for a current hire would cost them for future hires. However, when I interviewed in a previous cycle, the department clearly wanted to push for as big of package as possible with the dean. This was with a department showing strong research growth/improvement in a university showing the same.

    Specifically, who really controls the account with the startup funds? My impression is the department usually has a certain amount and the dean would have final approval authority, but how common is it for the dean to control startup funds without predetermined departmental allocations?
