I recently accepted a TT asst prof position in computer science at an elite SLAC in the US.
During my job search I perused Karen Kelsky's book "The Professor is In", and I found it very valuable, especially to reflect about different aspects of the job search process that I hadn't considered.
I'm now looking for a similar resource for new faculty members.
Here's what I found (but haven't bought yet):
- Robert Boice, Advice for New Faculty Members, 2000
- Russell James, Tenure hacks: The 12 secrets of making tenure, 2014
Does anyone have any comment/review about these books, or advice about any other written resource?
