  PhdjobhuntHers Moderator

PhdjobhuntHers is a moderated mailing list for women who are seeking or starting Ph.D. level jobs in computer science, computer engineering, or information technology in academia, industry, or government laboratories. This is a confusing period; the goal of this mailing list is to enable women undergoing this process to talk to one another.

This list does not require that issues be specific to women; it is fine to just ask questions and share information about looking for these types of jobs. Anonymous postings can be made by sending a request to the list moderators. This list is restricted to women who intend to seek a position in computer science, computer engineering, or information technology that requires a Ph.D. (e.g., a faculty position, a postdoc, or an industrial or government laboratory research position), who are currently looking for such a position, or who have recently started such a position.

You are welcome to join the PhdjobhuntHers email community.

JrProfessHers Moderator

JrProfessHers is a moderated mailing list for women faculty in computer science, computer engineering and information technology who do not yet have tenure.

Because being in a new (or relatively new) job and going through the tenure process can be stressful, it can be useful to share experiences with and get advice from other women in the same situation. Some of the topics will likely be specific to women, while others will be more general. Anonymous postings can be made by sending a request to the list moderators. To join this list you must be a female university or college faculty member in a computer science, computer engineering, or information technology department, who is not yet tenured.

 ResearcHers


Susan Landau

ResearcHers Moderator
 

ResearcHers is a mailing list of about three hundred women computer science, computer engineering or information technology researchers from industry, industrial and government research labs and academia. The list is international, with members from six continents.

ResearcHers focuses on issues of women and research. While both students and managers may face some of these issues (students as they begin research, managers as they direct research), ResearcHers is for women computer science researchers in their role as researchers; no students or managers please.

Note: there is also the list ProfessHers which is for women in academia. There is some overlap on the topics of the two lists; the intent is that ProfessHers covers issues of a more strictly academic nature, while ResearcHers focuses more on issues arising from womens' careers as researchers. Eligible women are encouraged to join both lists.

ProfessHers Moderator
 

ProfessHers is a moderated mailing list for women faculty members in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology to informally discuss issues related to their jobs and being successful in their careers.

Possible topics include aspects of graduate and undergraduate teaching, advising students, research, funding, interactions with colleagues, professional service, time management, promotion, and administrative work, especially for issues that are affected by being a woman or for which the perspectives of other women faculty are desired. For sensitive situations, anonymous requests for advice can be posted and anonymous responses can be made, by request to the list moderator.

Women who hold university or college faculty positions in computer science, computer engineering or information technology are welcome to join. This list is not for students, postdocs, or women in industry or government laboratories. (Please see CRA-W Mailing lists and http://www.systers.org/mailman/listinfo for other lists that serve these groups.)

Note that there is some overlap between this list and the ResearcHers list. The intent is that ProfessHers covers issues of a more strictly academic nature, while ResearcHers focuses more on issues arising from womens' careers as researchers. Eligible women are encouraged to join both lists.
