Working on a Provost's Targeted Excellence proposal on Human Language Technologies (HLT) and gathering together the people with the requisite expertise to make it all work really brought home a point for me: we are short quite a few departments. As a Socratic exercise, I thought I would tell you which five I think are the most markedly and urgently absent.



  • 1. Linguistics in Arts & Sciences

  • 2. Biomedical Engineering in Engineering

  • 3. Library Science in the Library and/or Arts & Sciences

  • 4. Genomics & Proteomics in Agriculture and/or Veterinary Medicine

  • 5. Planning & Design Informatics in Architecture, Planning and Design


There are actually more than five, but I'll get to that later.

Disclaimer: Suffice it to say that I don't speak for Kansas State University, its Faculty Senate, or any unit of the university from the CIS department to the three bioinformatics working groups I'm part of (curriculum, FIBR, Ecological and Arthropod Genomics).

I am looking for work and would like to be considered to administrate the machines this fine endeavor will no doubt need!

I'll certainly keep you posted. We're in a proposal-writing stage again, as the Targeted Excellence proposal did not get funded (even though it made the preproposal cut).

Are you in Manhattan or interested in returning?

Re: Sysadmin searches
I should announce a search some time in the next 10 months. Please feel free to submit a resume if you're still looking for a job at that point. Do you do any development?
