Yowzers, today (like 5 minutes ago) I got a major 'happy birthday' surprise -- an official official job offer from one university! It is for a half-time position and for one year with the possibility of extending it to a full time basis for another year depending on how things go, esp with getting fluent. The other U has been asking for syllabi from me for possible classes I could teach but nothing yet in terms of an offer. I have absolutely no idea what the salary might be like for a half-time position. This again is so different from interviewing/offers in the U.S. where discussion of salary is usually very upfront, often listed with the job-listing (but of course open to negotiation) etc. Anyone have any idea what a half-time academic salary looks like or should look like?
Last night friends threw a birthday party for me (birthday is today --lol, I got a year younger :) and I'll write more about how wonderful they are and how much fun it was in a bit!
