Dear Computing Department Faculty Member,
If you have ever held a position as an Assistant Professor in computing at a US college/university, we respectfully request that you take a few moments of your time to complete a survey about your experience. The survey solicits feedback on a variety of potential factors that can influence a common expectation in the Assistant Professor rank, publishing and presentation of scholarly research. Analysis of survey responses will hopefully yield results that inform how to better support graduate students and new professors in generating more productive publication and presentation records. Retention of junior faculty is of heightened concern at present due to booming enrollments in many Computer Science programs.
The survey, which will remain open until end of day on October 9th, is accessible via this anonymous link and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete: https://baldwinwallace.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0qClOs9i5pK6PRz
Note that you do not need to presently be an Assistant Professor, just have held the position at some point in time.
Please consider passing this message belong to any colleagues you have that have also been Assistant Professors at some point in their career to help us realize as large and diverse a set of responses as possible.
