I've got a new job! I'm moving up...to an office almost directly above the one I'm currently in. Contract isn't signed yet, but I have the verbal offer and permission to start moving into my new office...one with a window finally! Actually, even better than a window, it's newly renovated and in the part of the building that has the new, and actually functioning HVAC system, so I'll have AC in summer and heat in winter, not the other way around. Who knows, maybe I'll even have my own thermostat in my office. This is actually a slight shift in career direction for me. This is primarily an education position. I'll still be doing some research, but it'll be the more minor aspect of my time commitment. Writing research grants went from being a challenge to beating my head against the wall...people far more senior than me are losing funding left and right. At the same time, as you all can probably tell from my interaction with folks here, I LOVE teaching, so why keep bashing my head against the wall going nowhere when I can be content collaborating with other people on their research projects, and focusing my energy on teaching? So, I'm quite ecstatic today that I was offered this new position.
