My Declining Career
I was depressed to find the Quacquarelli Symonds website, which hosts the Times Higher Education Supplement's World University Rankings.
Looking at the Top 400 Universities worldwide for 2007, I find that my undergraduate school, the University of Queensland in Australia, comes in at number 33. My graduate school, the University of Warwick in England, is a step down at number 57. My Assistant Professoring was done at Penn State, number 90.
I searched long and hard for my current employers, the University of North Texas in the Top 400 and in the next 100. But it doesn't seem to be there.
My career seems to be a long downhill slide. I wouldn't mind so much, but I'm underappreciated by UNT.
