GUEST,Rana Non-Music - Academic Success Question (86* d) RE: Non-Music - Academic Success Question 22 Mar 01


CamiSu,

I got cut off above!

Two examples:

1. Grad student (science background) TA.ing an engineering course whilst doing his master's. On going to the Ph.D. level, he was required to take the course since he didn't have an engineering background. His TA was someone he TA'd.

2. My brother got caught in the sessional-lecturer trap (equivalent to the perpetual post-doc trap in the sciences - he did pure maths - algebra to be precise. One place would only give 9 month contracts which they kept on renewing for 3 years. If they gave a 12 month contract, they would have had to consider him for a tenured position.

As you said - academia!

Rana

PS - I think this got sent before because I pressed tab and enter
