Re: How to handle Maternity Leave
Are you a tenure track, phd professor? This sounds kind of strange to me, but then again I am in Canada. I have worked in the university for a long time, just finishing off my phd now (I hope). I have never heard of it being the responsibility of the prof to find a replacement for any kind of leave (including sabaticals, etc.). Our maternity leave is quite different here (most take a year), but it is up to the administration to find coverage for staff when they are on leave. I think you have done what you can-provide them the contact information of the interested candidate and wish them well. I would be shocked to find out it was your responsibility.
