What teaching experience do newly-hired TT ecology profs tend to have? Here’s the answer.

The faculty job market is going to be really bad this year due to the fallout from Covid-19. But still, there are some jobs out there, and so I’m sure folks on the ecology faculty job market would like good information on what the market is like. I spent three years compiling a lot of data on the US and Canadian ecology faculty job market, summarized and linked to here. But few folks seem to click those links. So over the next few days I’m going to re-post some of the links that that remain relevant and useful.

Today: a statistical summary of the teaching experience of recently hired tenure-track ecology profs in the US and Canada, as of the time they were hired. It’s broken down by hires into the most research-intensive positions, and the most teaching-intensive positions.

*Some of the data, such as that concerning number of applicants per position, may not reflect this year’s job market, in which there are many fewer jobs relative to the number of job seekers.

  1. I’ve clicked the link (did first did so about a year ago). You’ve probably heard this plenty, but thank you so much for doing this study. As one of those unfortunate souls on the job market this year, it helps so much to have actual data in this regard!
