As I’ve mentioned before, I didn’t do the play-by-play of the job market. Mainly because I’m paranoid.
So yes I applied for tenure track jobs. Yes I had interviews.
And now I’m happy to share that yes I got a job!
It is very far from where we currently live, which is just about the only downside. It is close to a major metropolitan area. There are international airports within a half hour.
The job itself is fantastic. I don’t think I could have dreamed a better one. The department is also wonderful and I already like many of my colleagues. It is a private R1, so I do need to really keep myself focused during this postdoc and produce!
I think that’s about all I feel comfortable sharing. I’ll keep this blog mostly about my writing and my adventures in motherhood. Though there may be some tenure anxiety that creeps in I don’t want to share anything about my department, students, teaching, or the school itself. Because, again, I’m paranoid.
I’m happy that I’m getting the opportunity to be a professor. Yay! Happy Dance! Celebration!
