 Rice university’s nsf advance

Panel discussion presented by Jennifer West and Kathy Matthews at the 2011 NSF ADVANCE Workshop: Negotiating the Ideal Faculty Position, A Workshop for Underrepresented PhDs and Postdocs in Science, Engineering and Psychology September 1820, 2010
Goals
 Institution
 Tenure is a lifelong commitment by the university to you
 Successful faculty – innovators, leaders, producers
 Research objectives need to align with institutional directions
 You
 Faculty position that meets your own research and career objectives
 Member of functional, innovative and forwardlooking department and institution
 Security offered by tenure
What can i do now?
Think about your steps all along the way
 Consistently evaluate your own progress
 Goals
 Mechanisms to get there
 Ways to learn from others and engage them
 Keep data on all your activities
 Ask for feedback
 Grant writing
 Papers
 Teaching
 Research program organization and development
This process is the accumulation of years of effort
THINK AHEAD!!
Understand the general process
 Learn about the promotion and tenure process at your institution
 Ask about the process at every stage if you have questions
 Request a copy of the policy
 Be sure when you are interviewing that the policy is consistent with your personal goals
 Understand the balance of teaching, research, and service that the institution AND the department will expect
 Understand the audience(s) for the materials
General process — the dossier
Dossier
 Summary of your independent career at institution
 Information on all aspects of your career
 Research summary (publications, grants, citations, awards)
 Teaching summary (courses, evaluations, awards)
 Service summary (activities, awards)
 Inside reviews/letters
 Outside letters –
very important
 Writers identified by department
 Also usually writers identified by individual
Dossier components
 CV as summary of career
 Education
 Honors
 Teaching/advising/mentoring
 Citations
 Grants
 Publications
 Research/teaching summary written by candidate
 Outside letters
What happens after dossier is prepared?
 Department review
 Tenured faculty generally involved in decision to recommend or deny tenure
 Department chair writes letter
 Some schools have subcommittee
 School review
 Often schoollevel committee reviews and makes recommendation to dean
 Dean makes recommendation
 Promotion/Tenure Committee (Provost)
 Makes recommendation to President
 President sometimes makes final decision
What happens after dossier is prepared?
 Department review
 School review
 Promotion/Tenure Committee (Provost)
 President may make final decision
Multiple levels of review — no one person makes the decision! Many voices are part of the process.
General process
 Understand the timing of preparing the dossier, what you should submit
and when
 Think carefully about names for Outside Letters
 Understand the process completely
 Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare your materials
 Think about your research/teaching summary
 Ensure that your papers are submitted in a timely way
 Ask QUESTIONS if you do not understand
Outside letters
 Highly influential in decision process
 May have opportunity to suggest names
 Develop relationships  create a network – MARKET yourself!
 Postdecision: Ask about possibility for feedback from the letters (can be useful)
Questions & Answers
find the 15th term of the geometric sequince whose first is 18 and last term of 387
The given of f(x=x2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X6)^2
so it's 20 divided by X6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
is it a question of log
Abhi
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
salma
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends
salma
im all ears I need to learn
Sherica
right! what he said ⤴⤴⤴
Tamia
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.
Al
if A not equal to 0 and order of A is n prove that adj (adj A = A
rolling four fair dice and getting an even number an all four dice
Differences Between Laspeyres and Paasche Indices
No. 7x 4y is simplified from 4x + (3y + 3x) 7y
how do you translate this in Algebraic Expressions
Need to simplify the expresin. 3/7 (x+y)1/7 (x1)=
. After 3 months on a diet, Lisa had lost 12% of her original weight. She lost 21 pounds. What was Lisa's original weight?
what's the easiest and fastest way to the synthesize AgNP?
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes
Porter
what is the k.e before it land
Yasmin
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
I'm interested in nanotube
Uday
what is nanomaterials and their applications of sensors.
what is system testing?
AMJAD
preparation of nanomaterial
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
good afternoon madam
AMJAD
what is system testing
AMJAD
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field .
1Electronicsmanufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc
2Helth and MedicalNanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc
3 Atomobile MEMS, Coating on car etc.
and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
