Search Winding Down March 15, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in physics life.
Well, our search for a particle physics faculty position is starting to close in on the end. The first batch of rejection letters goes out tomorrow or the day after. These are rough — especially in particle physics. Everyone knows everyone and it is hard not to take these things personally (I know I did when I got them). The reality is that it is a very complex decision that goes into these things, but… Well. It is impossible to write these letters and not feel bad. Partly because we had so many great people apply — many of them I would really have enjoyed working with. So, my apologies, and best of luck.
