So this is my first time on the market, and I've been fortunate enough to have a few good interviews, but I'm kind of at a loss when they ask about necessary start-up funds (btw, the jobs I've been interviewing for range from SLACs to R1s so I'd love advice on both though I know they are completely different). On one hand, my research isn't overly expensive to conduct (really just need a decent computer, some relatively common analysis software, travel money, a couple thousand dollars to purchase datasets, and separate office space with a non-networked pc for confidential data). But I also don't want to sell myself short when negotiating start-up packages. Any advice on what is reasonable in terms of overall budget and any extra things I should think about putting into it? Any advice on how to handle these negotiations? The R1s in particular seem to want pretty detailed budgets, and I'm worried that I'm leaving out things that will be important later on!
Thanks in advance!
