Lots of positions at RU (and many universities) are funded by federal or foundation grants, etc... For example, the National Transportation Institute is housed at Rutgers but positions there are funded by the Federal Transit Administration (I know this because I applied for a position there once), not Rutgers or the State of NJ. The question to ask is how stable the funding source is and what contingencies there are if any, should the funding stream be interrupted.

Ditto. Most state schools in New Jersey work this way and I had a positon that was "grant" funded, but the grant was like 30 years old.

so when applying for state college jobs, how important should the state vs non state funding for the job be when making a decision?
