 2006 nsf advance workshop:
 How to find the right institutional
Workshop Authors: Mike Orchard (RiceELEC), Tom Killian (RicePhysics), Sallie KellerMcNulty (RiceDean of Engineering), Karen Hirschi (Baylor), and Farinaz Koushanfar (RiceELEC)
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 kellermcnulty)
 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.

1. x + 6 2
 = _
x + 9 + 6 3
x + 6 3
 x  (cross multiply)
x + 15 2
3(x + 6) = 2(x + 15)
3x + 18 = 2x + 30 (2x from both)
x + 18 = 30 (18 from both)
x = 12
Test:
12 + 6 18 2
 =  = 
12 + 9 + 6 27 3
Pawel
2.
(x) + (x + 2) = 60
2x + 2 = 60
2x = 58
x = 29
29, 30, & 31
Pawel
on number 2 question How did you got 2x +2
Ifeanyi
combine like terms. x + x + 2 is same as 2x + 2
Pawel
Q2
x+(x+2)+(x+4)=60
3x+6=60
3x+66=606

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?
Mark = x,. Don = 3x + 1
x + 3x + 1 = 113
4x = 112, x = 28
Mark = 28, Don = 85, 28 + 85 = 113

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
