Forum Index
A forum for UK academics to chat anonymously about research, teaching and all the other things that make life difficult. I was thinking of calling this forum "Herding Cats" because that's what managing academics is supposed to be like.

Not quite sure whether this should go under research or the admin heading - perhaps admin as it can be such a headache.

We've recently advertised a part time, five month position which surprisingly we've had a huge response to. I seem to recall some other colleagues (and personnel) questioning whether we'd actually get anyone to do it, and I've certainly had grant-awarding bodies question whether it's worth their while funding such posts. But we always seem to manage to fill them.

Next step: wading through the applications Rolling Eyes. And also: working out if it's ethical for me to write a reference for the job for someone who used to be a student of mine. I suspect not.

I do have to watch myself on this, actually, since having employed people in a couple of less-developed areas, with much more rough-and-ready employment legislation, I need to remember that we have to try and behave ourselves here.
