Name of school offering the position (will not show up on the list; this item will be used to produce an average of the Business Week "top 50," perhaps a "next 50," and "other")

Base Salary (exclusive of summer support) in US $. Those with 12-month contracts (usually due to administrative duties) should not perform contrived calculations to derive summer support and should report the entire salary here. Please do not enter text here.

Guaranteed annual summer support in US $

---for years

Annual discretionary research budget (including travel, technology, and optional secretarial services, but not including required items such as course software, basic telephone, and copying). If not specified separately, estimate the maximum travel and technology that would reasonably be supported without special requests (or appeals).

Moving expense reimbursements or signing bonuses in US $

Annual teaching load in courses (semester-course equivalents) defined as number of 3-credit semester courses to be taught. A 3-credit course counts for roughly 3 hrs/week, so 15 weeks = nominally 45 hours per course inclusive of breaks. In practice, taking breaks will limit class time to about 50 minutes per class hour, or 2.5 hours per week (37.5 teaching hours per semester). Thus, a 2+2 load at a semester-based school would involve approximately 180 nominal hours (inclusive of breaks) or 150 teaching hours (exclusive of breaks), and would be entered as 4. If you are not on the standard semester system, please divide the number of nominal hours including breaks by 45, or divide the number of teaching hours excluding breaks by 37.5, for a fairly clear answer to this question. If the two differ, please use the latter. Feel free to use decimals in the answer, but please round to the nearest tenth.

Publication requirement for tenure at this institution (leave blank if there is no tenure system).

Note: For the following items, it is understandable that a school would indicate ranges rather than single numbers. Please take a midpoint of the range you're thinking of, and assume a mix of 33% "A" publications and 66% "other" in a hypothetical person's record. If ranges are provided, I will take the midpoint of each range

As best you can estimate, how many top-tier publications (see definition above) will be required for tenure?

As best you can estimate, how many publications overall (including the top-tier category) will be required for tenure?
