For the sake of general usefulness, let's address public/private but assume tenure track R1 positions, not teaching.
I'm a social scientist with PhD-in-hand, so please let that flavor your answers. And in my field, there actually are a decent number of jobs, especially in my sub-field.
I totally understand that this is your one shot to really push. I know about trying to reduce teaching load, getting more startup funds, money for RAs, and better relocation package.
I'd like general thoughts but also specifics like:
- How to make multiple offers work to your best advantage?
- How to interpersonally approach all of this (especially from a female perspective)?
