We are pleased to announce open applications for our postdoctoral program funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (H133P020009). The goal of this program is to train postdoctoral and professional scholars, in any discipline, to be leaders in disability studies and rehabilitation research and mentorship. Based at the University of California, Berkeley, a San Francisco Bay Area Consortium of universities, research institutes, and disability agencies will recruit people with advanced professional degrees who want to broaden their theoretical outlook and their disability research methodological skills.

One of the most difficult things for new faculty members to learn is how to say no to administrative requests. This is especially true in the case of minority faculty, as many university committees have designated spots for underrepresented faculty. Since minority faculty tend to be junior faculty, a disproportionate burden is placed on them. However, saying "no" can be difficult, especially when you're coming up for review.

Efficiency site has a wonderful article and subsequent discussion on a compromise, the "qualified yes."
