Remember, too, that it is the end of the US fall semester...many, if not
most, of us are feeling even more overwhelmed than usual!
Brief Intro: I'm a temp. faculty teaching a new course, w/ a 4 mo old
infant & a grant renewal to write (=1/2 of my salary) plus this year's job
applications to get out. My teaching, which I enjoy but do not wish t o
make my sole activity, has become predominantly non-majors classes (the
classes most tenured faculty don't want). My research is in behavioral
ecology and physiological ecology, using large orb-weaving spiders. I've
moved more into the lab oveer the last few years, in part because I earn
part of my living through teaching now & can't travel as much, but mostly
because I needed to better understand the nutritional requirements of my
spiders in order to explain the behavior & ecology.
The bad news, as it were, is that I've been actively looking for a job
since I finished my first post-doc in 1990. The good news is that I've
been able to stay active. But the e-mail correspondence has definetly been
in the back-seat the last 4 months!
