Quote from: Puget on November 21, 2023, 06:24:26 PMWhen you say "in research university labs" do you mean research lab staff positions in another faculty members lab? It would be pretty unusual for someone who was faculty to take such a position (though in some cases with large multi-PI lab groups someone might step from a TT to a research faculty position for various reasons). Not to say it maybe couldn't work, but you might not get a response because it would just seem very odd for you to be applying. You could try directly emailing and explaining your reasons for wanting to make this change and why you think it would be a good fit. Or maybe you mean something completely different, like support staff for teaching labs?

It did cross my mind to email someone directly but this time I could not figure out the who the PI might be. I suppose I can call an administrative assistant and ask who the right person might be.
