To the net-group:

I enclose our job announcement below.   If
you are not looking for work and do not know
of anyone looking to become a professor, use
the delete key.  I think it appropriate to bring
this position to the attention of people
interested in teaching.  One comment that our
ad below does not make is the reality that ECSU
is one place were teaching DOES count in promotion
and tenure applications.  In fact ECSU is a place
where people who were denied tenure elsewhere
because of good teaching (interpreted by management
as incompatible with good research) can thrive
in a balanced research and teaching environment.

Thanks for passing this announcement on to any
recent graduates or other colleagues.
