Professorships In Different Subjects

  1. Oct 18, 2009 #1
    Prompted by the very interesting thread regarding grad school in physics I am interested to find out how difficult other subjects are to get a professorship in? Is physics one of the more difficult? How does it compare with other sciecnce? How about with mathematics? Particularly applied maths/computational science?

    If you don't have the info any ideas on where it could be found?

    What about the liberal arts?

    I have friends who are professors in the humanities.

    By what they tell me, getting a humanities tenure track position at a small university in the humanities makes getting a physics tenure track position look like a walk in the park by comparison.
