Dammit.

I don't want to apply for jobs in the States because frankly I have no interest in remaining in the States, but a TT asst prof job in science fiction studies just opened up in Florida and argh.

I should at least try?

If I was qualified, I'd be tempted to apply.

My thought is don't allow concerns about job security make you go to a place you don't want to be. There *is* no security in this life -- and a tenured spot somewhere you don't want to be would, if obtained, be yet another chain holding you back from getting to where you *do* want to be. Just my two cents' worth -- and worth what you've paid for it, perhaps... ;)

I'm not worried about job security so much as it sounds really cool and would be fun to at least try to apply for it!

Sounds interesting. I'd say 'give it a go' and see what happens.

Which country/countries would you like to get a job?

I don't know, really. It'd be nice to go back to Malaysia but the state of the university there doesn't sound very fruitful and might actually be horrific. I know I don't want to stay in the States for the long-term. Maybe Canada? Argh! IDK! ;_; I'm kinda taking things as they happen.
