    A Scientist's Guide to Academic Etiquette

    A Scientist's Guide to Academic Etiquette

    By Female Science Professor
    For some reason, academics are not particularly famous for having well-developed social skills, although I don't think we are any more or less socially adept than nonacademics. The shy, awkward professor is a stereotype, although one can, from time to time, see how it might have come about.

    Even so, academics can be quite aggressive, especially when it comes to research. Faculty positions and grants are difficult to obtain, we are rewarded for publishing a lot, and our universities seem quite pleased when our work generates public attention (of the positive sort). All of those factors combine to produce a culture that rewards highly assertive faculty members.

    The awkwardness and occasional hostility that may arise among scholars in competitive fields gets even more complicated when members of an underrepresented group (such as women in the physical sciences, engineering, and math) are added to the mix. You end up with a rather long list of situations in which people might not behave as well as they could.

    In the years that I have been blogging, I have written about some of the situations in which we academics are impolite to each other, and offered suggestions for how we might get along better. I started numbering the examples, at first with randomly assigned, absurdly high numbers, as if they were items in a long nonexistent document called "FSP's Guide to Academic Etiquette." Eventually I collected all of those scenarios together and gave them real numbers. I hereby share my existing list, with the addition of some new items.

    A cursory glance shows that this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the things one might want or need to know to navigate the academic world. Furthermore, some of these tips are more useful than others, some are more serious than others, and more than a few focus on the extremes of academic behavior. All of them are based on actual experiences. On to the list:

    1. For interviewees: During your campus interview, don't give different, completely inconsistent answers to different people depending on your perception of their position in the department or university hierarchy. If you are aggressive with female assistant professors ("I am not interested in teaching. I intend to hire five postdocs and focus on research. So, how many grants do you have?"), but unctuous with the senior male professors ("Teaching is a major priority for me, and I plan to involve students in my research."), that discrepancy might be discovered. We do talk about you after you're gone. And since this example (like the others) is based on a true story, I can report that such behavior may not be viewed favorably.

    2. For interviewees: If, for some reason, you absolutely must bring your significant other to an interview, including to social events with members of the hiring committee, don't smooch, call each other cute nicknames, and/or feed each other during the dinner. The hiring committee may well comprised people with families and interests outside work, but they may nevertheless be disturbed by that behavior.

    3. For faculty interviewers: Don't ask illegal and unethical questions. If you don't know what is permissible, find out in advance.

    4. For faculty interviewers: Imagine that the person you are interviewing might one day be your colleague. Don't alienate the candidate from the start. Be polite and professional, and don't look at your watch every few minutes during the conversation.

    5. For male faculty interviewers: Don't say to a female candidate for a faculty position: "I don't know what we are supposed to talk about. I can tell you that my wife likes living here. She likes the schools, she has a nice garden, and the humidity makes her hair curly." Don't say anything that strongly suggests that you don't know how to have a professional conversation with a woman.

    6. For department chairs: Don't start your meeting with a candidate by listing the previous faculty members who have been denied tenure.

    7. For department or search-committee chairs: When you have made a decision, let the unsuccessful candidates know the outcome. Don't assume they will guess the outcome if they don't hear any news from you.

    8. For applicants: After determining that someone is willing to write a letter of reference for you, provide the necessary information in an organized way—well in advance of the deadline.

    9. For applicants: If someone writes a letter of reference for you, let them know the outcome of your applications, or at least ask if they want to be informed.

    10. For students and postdocs: If you are paid a salary, you should do the work.

    11. For students visiting professors, even during office hours: If you are going to ask a professor a question and you need to refer to your notes or a book, have them within easy reach, with the relevant pages marked. Don't spend the first few minutes searching through your backpack and your giant folders covered with skull doodles only to realize that you left the desired item at home and have no idea what your question was, so instead you just ask the professor if you missed anything important in the class session you skipped because you overslept.

    12. For students visiting professors, even outside of office hours: If the professor is dining al desco, an activity typically done to save time on a busy day, don't ask, "Are you busy?" The answer is yes. Ask instead, "Do you have a few minutes to talk, or should I come back at a better time?"

    13. For students: Don't call male faculty members "Professor" or "Dr.," and then call female professors by their first names—unless you know that the female professor wants to be called by her first name.

    14. For everyone: Run a spell checker before giving someone a manuscript or other document to read.

    15. For authors: Before submitting anything for review, notify all of the co-authors and give them a chance to comment on the manuscript that bears their names. This is an ethics issue, not an etiquette matter.

    16. For co-authors: If you are a co-author, you should respond in a timely way to requests for comments, or at least provide some communication to work out a reasonable time frame within which you can provide input.

    17. For co-authors: Don't force people to add your name to papers if your contributions were minimal to nonexistent.

    18. For readers: Don't assume that a paper is written by a man and then express great surprise when you meet the female author. Comments such as, "I thought you must be a man because you published a lot of interesting papers" will not be viewed as compliments by some women.

    19. For reviewers: When writing a review, even if you think the authors are wrong or have incorrectly and inadequately cited your work, or you don't like their data or their font or their interpretations or the way that they say that your work is flawed, write your criticisms in a constructive and professional way.

    20. For researchers: Don't steal ideas. Get your own ideas, or collaborate.

    21. For people introducing a speaker: Before the talk, ask speakers if they have a preference about what is said during their introduction. Some people won't, but some may have preferences about what to mention (dates, places, awards, crimes).

    22. For speakers: If you are scheduled to give a talk of a certain length, don't speak for significantly more than that amount of time.

    23. For everyone: Thank people who help you, even if it is their job to do so, or you think it is their job to do so. There is a chance that you may be misinformed.

    24. For advisers: Don't assume that a student or postdoc lacks ambition just because they don't want to be a professor at a big research university.

    25. For advisers: Don't boast about firing graduate students. It is unseemly. You don't have to keep it a secret, but don't use those incidents to establish your hard-core credentials.

    26. For professors: If you don't like another professor, don't take your dislike out on their students and postdocs.

    27. For anyone who attends faculty meetings: Don't make faculty meetings last longer than necessary unless you have something really important to say.

    28. For everyone, especially students: Don't ask someone if they are a "real" professor.

    29. For everyone who attends conferences: If you see someone you want to talk to at a conference and that person is already in a conversation, try to join in, or ask politely if you can interrupt. Do not simply start talking as if the other person doesn't exist.

    30. For everyone: Don't tell your adviser, colleagues, or students what your therapist says about them.

    Female Science Professor is the pseudonym of a professor in the physical sciences at a large research university who blogs under that moniker and writes monthly for our Catalyst column. Her blog is FemaleScienceProfessor.

    Recrutement d'un chercheur « post-doc » au 1er janvier 2011
    Edition multimédia du catalogue du Fonds Cocteau
    Université de Montpellier III
    Le centre de recherche RIRRA 21 (Marie-Eve Thérenty dir.) de l'université de Montpellier III recrute un chercheur post-doc en Littérature française ou en Arts du Spectacle, à compter du 1er janvier 2011, pour coordonner et mener à bien la refonte et l'édition multimédia du catalogue du Fonds Cocteau. Il devra résider sur place.
    1/ Contexte
    Riche d'un Fonds documentaire sur l'écrivain Jean Cocteau unique en France conservé par la B.I.U. de Montpellier, le centre de recherche RIRRA 21 entretient une tradition pluri-décennale de travail sur l'auteur et son temps, dont témoignent de nombreuses publications et les éditions d'oeuvres de Cocteau dans la Bibliothèque de la Pléiade assurées par des membres de l'équipe (poésie et théâtre).
    La valorisation scientifique et médiatique de ce fonds fait partie des actions permanentes d'un des programmes du centre, « Fonds Cocteau & Cie », qui s'effectue en collaboration avec son directeur scientifique Pierre Caizergues et deux conservatrices de la BIU. Elle prendra notamment la forme, au printemps 2012, d'une grande exposition dans les locaux du site Saint-Charles, destinée à marquer l'inauguration des nouveaux bâtiments.
    Cette échéance est l'occasion de proposer une édition entièrement refondue du catalogue du fonds. La précédente date de 1998 : depuis, plusieurs catalogues spécifiques ont été réalisés (danse, musique, cinéma), et de nombreuses acquisitions ont eu lieu, portant le fonds de 2000 à 5000 pièces environ. Le but de ce projet est de rendre le fonds plus lisible, et ainsi plus facilement exploitable par les chercheurs.
    2/ Projet
    Ce catalogue prendra la forme d'une édition multi-supports, combinant un premier volet sur papier et un second sur DVD-Rom. Il devra aller au-delà du simple stockage de données et répondre aux besoins suivants :
    - présenter un inventaire intégral du fonds, ainsi qu'une description raisonnée de l'ensemble ;
    - proposer un parcours au moyen de textes, d'images, voire de sons (présence d'archives radiophoniques et de microsillons) parmi les collections du fonds ;
    - mettre en valeur les plus belles pièces du fonds (manuscrits, dessins, illustrations, éditions remarquables...) ;
    - inclure des compléments bio-bibliographiques sur l'auteur ainsi que des compléments critiques reflétant l'état des recherches sur Cocteau, notamment celles directement menées à partir du fonds lui-même ;
    - inclure enfin une fonction de mise à jour documentaire automatique, à partir du catalogue du fonds par internet de la BIU.
    3/ Mission du chercheur post-doc
    Le chercheur post-doc, recruté en Littérature française ou en Arts du Spectacle, aura pour mission de coordonner et mener à bien ce projet, en lien avec les différents partenaires impliqués, notamment :
    - les spécialistes de Cocteau engagés dans le projet ;
    - le directeur scientifique du fonds ;
    - les conservatrices du fonds à la BIU ;
    - le concepteur multimédia ;
    - les éditeurs de l'ouvrage.
    Il présentera aussi des résultats de son travail lors de l'exposition Cocteau de 2012 et du colloque « Cocteau journaliste » qui l'accompagnera.
    4/ Qualités requises
    - Capacité de conceptualisation et de formalisation selon les enjeux artistiques et médiatiques du projet ;
    - Dynamisme et aptitude à faire le lien entre les acteurs, nécessitant un sens du travail collectif ;
    - La mission n'implique pas de connaissance spécialisée préalable du fonds Cocteau. Cependant une familiarité avec l'oeuvre de Cocteau est souhaitée.
    - La mission n'implique pas de compétence pointue en nouvelles technologies. Cependant une familiarité avec l'univers multimédia est demandée.
    Pour tout renseignement, prendre contact avec Pierre-Marie Héron : ou Pierre-Marie Héron, Université de Montpellier III, route de Mende, 34000 Montpellier. Les dossiers de candidature sont aussi à envoyer à cette adresse : ils seront composés d'un curriculum vitae, du rapport de soutenance de la thèse et d'une lettre de motivation.

    Recrutement d'un post-doc
    Université Montpellier III
    Le centre de recherche RIRRA 21 (Marie-Eve Thérenty dir.) de l'université de Montpellier III dans la lignée de ses travaux sur la presse au XIXe siècle se propose pour le prochain quadriennal d'étudier le corpus des « mystères urbains ». On appelle ainsi des romans qui ont pour titre le syntagme « mystères de [un nom de ville] » sur le modèle des Mystères de Paris d'Eugène Sue, publié dans le feuilleton du Journal des débats en 1842-1843. La parution de ce roman est le premier phénomène de culture médiatique. Il est traduit dans toutes les langues, connaît un succès international. Mais surtout ce roman déclenche l'écriture sur tous les continents de romans dérivés dont l'intrigue varie suivant les contextes locaux. Pendant plusieurs dizaines d'années, et même encore au XXe siècle, des centaines de romans urbains généralement parus dans la presse avant d'être repris en librairie mettent en scène les bas-fonds des villes du monde entier. On trouve bien sûr des Mysteries of London par Reynolds (1844-1848), Los misteríos de Madrid de Juan Martínez Villergas (1844), Os Mistéros de Lisboa de Camilo Castelo Branco (1854) mais aussi des Mystères de Lille (1875), des Mystères de Clamart (1881) ou encore des Mystères de Montréal (1892) …. On se trouve ici devant la première manifestation de la mondialisation culturelle.
    Ce corpus de romans urbains qui a l'avantage d'être à la fois large, homogène et circonscrit appellera des analyses plurielles, internationales et pluridisciplinaires : du côté des transferts culturels, de la traduction, des identités nationales et régionales, de la narratologie, des bas-fonds, de l'urbain, des supports, de la parodie, de l'adaptation théâtrale, de la culture médiatique… Une extension du programme vers l'adaptation cinématographique des romans urbains est envisagée .
    Pour l'exploitation de ce corpus, le programme « Presse et littérature se propose de travailler de la manière suivante : des ateliers internes, des confrontations bilatérales de corpus avec des équipes étrangères (des rencontres sont déjà planifiées avec le Mexique, le Canada, l'Angleterre) en 2011 et 2012, un grand congrès international en 2013 réunissant des spécialistes du monde entier.
    Pour constituer ce corpus, l'université de Montpellier met à la disposition du centre de recherche un poste de chercheur post-doc pour 12 mois (début théorique : 1er janvier 2011).

    Missions du chercheur post-doc.
    - Composer la base de données du corpus à partir des catalogues des BN du monde entier
    - Collecter ces textes : repérer les éditions en ligne, demander des reproductions dans les bibliothèques nationales, acheter les éditions à bon marché et les numériser. Dans le budget 2011, des fonds sont réservés à cette opération de collecte.
    - Commencer l'analyse du corpus en repérant des critères significatifs.
    P-résenter les résultats de son expertise à l'ensemble des journées d'études et ateliers.

    Compétences et qualités requises
    - Intérêt pour la presse et les médias. Bonne connaissance de la presse et de la librairie du XIXe siècle.
    - Maîtrise de langues étrangères souhaitée (espagnol et anglais idéalement)
    - Dynamisme, sens du travail collectif et intérêt pour le projet.
    - Présence régulière à Montpellier.
    Pour tout renseignement, prendre contact avec Marie-Eve Thérenty : ou Marie-Eve Thérenty, Université de Montpellier III, route de Mende, 34000 Montpellier. Les dossiers de candidature sont aussi à envoyer à cette adresse : ils seront composés d'un curriculum vitae, du rapport de soutenance de la thèse et d'une lettre de motivation.

    PhD Research Project: Computational tools for assessing building vulnerability from tsunamis
    Funding – The studentship covers UCL tuition fees and provides a stipend of £15,726 pa (tax-free).
    Funding Body: EPSRC

    Vacancy Information:
    Project Partner: HR Wallingford
    Academic Supervisor: Dr Professor Ian Eames (
    Dr Giovanni Cuomo (
    Dr Stephen Richardson (
    In partnership with HR Wallingford and the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, the UCL Centre for Urban Sustainability and Resilience invites applications for a four year (one year MRes and three year EngD) studentship to work on an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK funded project.

    Project Background:
    The focus of this EngD study is on developing original research on estimating the forces acting on buildings (within an urban environment) due to the impact and runup of a tsunami. This is an extremely complex problem which involves combining together results from numerical models with extensive database of experimental results. The scientific gap and challenge to be able to accurately estimate the distribution of force over the surface of a building, the total force on the building and how this is influenced by the properties of the incident flow. The current project looks to develop computational tools to be able to assess the force on idealised models of buildings, and to develop techniques that will enable this information to be incorporated into large-scale computational models that can assess the potential for building damage.

    Studentship Description:
    The work will be computational and involve using in-house or shareware codes to assess the forces on buildings individually and in groups. The computational results will be compared against analytical models and unique experimental data from the UCL and HR Wallingford fluids laboratories.

    The purpose will be to develop guidance on how tsunami flow on and around buildings can be modelled in order to provide input to tsunami coastal risk assessments. The student will be part of the multi-disciplinary research group EPICentre ( and form part of a larger team looking at tsunami risk estimation.
    The student will also be expected to engage with HR Wallingford, and spend some time on its premises undertaking research activity related to the project. There may be a chance that the student will be able to participate in some experimental work at both UCL and Wallingford.

    Person Specification:
    Applicants should have a good honours degree (ideally a 1st or 2:1 minimum) in mathematics, mechanical engineering, physical or environmental science, computer science or civil engineering. This is a computational project and experience of programming C++, data handling and visualisation, a high level of numeracy, and good understanding of fluid mechanics. You should be able to demonstrate excellent organisational and communication skills, have the interpersonal skills to work as part of a professional team, while also possessing the self-motivation and enthusiasm to work alone.

    Applicants must meet the EPSRC eligibility criteria
    Start Date: 23rd September 2013 for 4-years full time (no part time option available).

    Application Procedure
    To apply, please visit and upload a covering letter and CV indicating how you meet the criteria and demonstrating your passion for the research area.
    Closing Date: 5pm on Monday 24th June 2013.
