This is a conversion of a presentation given at the Negotiating the Ideal Faculty Position Workshop given on October 14-16, 2007.

Home:

•Accept less (cleanliness, simple meals, etc.)

•Hire a housekeeper

•Shopping, chores – plan to do as infrequently as possible

•Expect partners to equally share responsibilities

•Delegate tasks to other family members/housekeeper

•Use available resources: childcare, backup childcare, summer camp

Work:

•5 minute rule: if you can do it in 5 minutes, do it now and be done with it.

•Make realistic to-do lists – rank by importance

•Don’t procrastinate. Limited time requires great focus of attention.

•Use available secretarial resources: don't make photocopies, as possible, delegate grant paperwork, travel arrangements, other scheduling

•as available, use TA's

•delegate answering student questions. So you don't know the answer either? Say, 'Good question. Find that out and tell me the answer.'

Make careful decisions regarding your time.

Do this by never committing immediately. Always ask for time to consider.

Prioritize as follows:

1. Will this get me tenure?

2. Will this help my students?

3. Will this advance me professionally outside of my institution?

If practical, say yes to:

Panel service (NSF, NIH, NASA, DOE, etc)

Do this at least once as early as possible in your tenure clock.

Not more than 12 reviews total per year. This includes both proposal reviews and manuscript reviews.

Develop a manuscript review template to speed manuscript reviewing.

Professional travel:

Many people find this more challenging after having children. If at all possible, do much of this before children. As children become older, travel will become easier.

Be selfish with:

1. Your physical health

2. Your mental health

3. Your family time

4. Your time with your partner

what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think

Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian

what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery

what is Nano technology ?
Bob Reply
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
