I was recently applying for a tenure track position at a university. I had found people who had adjacent research interests, and thought it would be good to mention them as possible collaborators for research. However, I just found out that these researchers work at a different, smaller campus under the same university structure.
How common is collaboration between different campuses of the same university? To clarify, in my case,this isn't a state university either (for example,university of X- cityA vs university of X- cityB... these do tend to feel more like separate universities altogether), but rather a private university with various campuses and satellite locations. I'm sure that this is dependent on the university culture, but I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this.
