I am a doctor, with specialty in psychiatry and a subspecialty in mood disorders.
I have been offered an academic position at a larger university, but the letter of offer does not specify any research time - only clinical time. I want to negotiate clinical time (number of patients to see per week), which will be my main source of income, vs protected research time (for which the Hospital/University will provide compensation). I want to be able to do research but need the department to commit to paying me for it.
It is my understanding that this will be the only time I will be in a position of power to negotiate something, but I don't know where to start. I have other 2 offers in place as well.
The clinical aspect may make this negotiation different from other junior faculty members, e.g. as in Evaluating and negotiating a start-up package.
