Sunday, November 12, 2006Life on the tenure track
I just finished this really short book. Though some of the experiences are more specific to those at predominantly teaching schools, many of them (such as figuring out how to get students discussing or how to understand department dynamics) are more universal for new faculty. I'd recommend the book to new faculty or advanced grad students. Some parts might also be good for senior faculty, some of whom can easily forget what it's like to be a newbie.

Thanks for the suggestion.
This might offer a useful glimpse into what an academic career would actually involve.

Milan...have you seen our job listing for S&T in international affairs?

I think I will actually need a doctorate before any such jobs will be possible.
