Slide 1: welcome and introduction (tom killian)

  • Think hard about finding what is right for you.
    • What is important for you?
    • Most applicants – go into the process without spending enough time at this.
  • Be proactive and find the information you need.
  • Application and interview process can teach you much about your field and yourself.
  • Be honest and up front about your goals and interests.

Slide 2: what are your options? (sallie keller-mcnulty)

  • Research institution vs teaching institution vs government lab – and overlap between them
  • Post doc vs permanent position
  • First job vs last job point of view

Slide 3: what should you consider when looking for the right institutional fit? (mike orchard)

  • Think about what makes you productive…what do you need?
    • Collaborative, resources, facilities
    • Not the same for every person
  • Quality of life
    • Cost of living, weather, other interests
  • Expectations of you and institution
  • Teaching load, junior leave
  • During the interview process, the institution is trying to make its best impression…it won’t get better than this.
  • Support for new faculty
  • Joint academic appointments
  • Space available
  • Senior colleagues
  • Future directions of the department
  • Quality of the graduate students
  • Quality of the undergraduate students
  • Support of senior administration

Slide 4: what resources do you have for learning about institutions and options? (karen hirschi)

  • Advisor – you can make it easy for him or her by providing good information on what you are considering
  • Networking
  • Junior faculty
  • Colleagues at other institutions

Slide 5: what will your strategy be? (farinaz koushanfar)

  • Various stages – pre application, application, interview, after offer
  • Be proactive, especially once you have an offer – it makes you look strong!
    • Ask to meet with women faculty separately
    • Ask to meet with students, human resources
    • Ask to sit in on a class or seminar – see what they show you.
  • Make your application appropriate for the institution
  • Networking, or at least making it look like you are in the network by making your application appropriate for the institution
  • During the offer phase, envision and negotiate for what will make you succeed…think broadly
  • Being engaged and asking hard detailed questions on every visit will let the committee know you are interested. This is a good thing.
  • Identify who is on your committee and who is not – junior faculty can provide good information on the choices you are faced with.

Mark and Don are planning to sell each of their marble collections at a garage sale. If Don has 1 more than 3 times the number of marbles Mark has, how many does each boy have to sell if the total number of marbles is 113?
mariel Reply
Mark = x,. Don = 3x + 1 x + 3x + 1 = 113 4x = 112, x = 28 Mark = 28, Don = 85, 28 + 85 = 113

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
