I have had a tenure-track job for the last five years, but was on the market for the last two years, looking for an upgrade. Well, I finally got it. I am now (rather nervously) looking forward to the a crazy couple of years of newness.
I just want to thank you all for your help. I have learned a great deal from you all about this process - and indeed, about the field as a whole. There is much collective wisdom scattered across these threads. I have enjoyed the occasional sparring, too, over the more contentious issues.
I think we all should express a note of extreme gratitude to vd. Unless I am mistaken, he or she is the organizer of this wiki. I am sure that it can be a burden, and I for one have benefited immensely. Thank you!
Like many here, I will likely stay tuned to the various conversations that appear here, and sometimes join in. I have met none of you, but you feel like friends to me.
