ne young chemist with a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley
is beginning to feel that he's been cheated after following his wife to a
job at a research university this academic year. The chemist, who did not
want his name or the name of his university specified, had high expectations
at first. The university gave him a visiting professorship and money to
start his research, and officials told him that they expected openings in
his field. Two such jobs have, in fact, opened up, and although he's
applied, he has not been a leading candidate for either of them.
"After being here for eight months, it's very clear to me that if you get
yourself into a visiting-professorship position, they can get an equal
amount of work out of you without paying you the money of a tenure-track job
or giving you benefits or any real future," he says. He figures he would
have been better off staying in his postdoctoral position at the California
Institute of Technology, and using that as a base to search for a tenure-
Natania Rosenfeld was hired as a visiting assistant professor by Duke
University's English department after her husband was offered a renewable
six-year contract in the drama program there in 1994. (Multiyear contracts
are typical in drama, because the program does not award tenure.) She
remembers the conversation she had with Wallace Jackson, who was then
chairman of the English department, after she arrived in 1994. "He said, 'If
all goes well, you would be a promising candidate when we advertise for a
job in modern British literature.'" Even better, she says, one faculty
member in that field was planning to retire soon.
But after her one-year visiting post ended, in 1995, Ms. Rosenfeld did not
get another contract, and resorted to teaching as an adjunct at Duke.
"Somehow, the bottom fell out," she says. During the couple's third year on
the campus, a tenure-track position in English opened, but she was never
interviewed. "Nobody there noticed me. I was on the fringes."
