  • "INTERVIEW SCHEDULED" notes in bold are NOT reliable, especially those alleging interviews scheduled on the 30th and not corroborated by more than one person.  At least one of the notes are for a school that definitely HAS NOT yet scheduled interviews.  #sickhoax
  • the person is now doubling back and placing x2 on her/his alleged interview requests #silly 
  • I do not think it is possible to trust this list at this point. Yesterday Williams had one interview scheduled now it is x3. I was in direct contact with the chair yesterday who informed me that they have NOT scheduled interviews.

NOTES:

Sad to report, job has been relisted. Not sure what's going on here with a campus visit and a relisting but clearly they're not superhappy with their candidate pool. Job is relisted on higheredjobs here higheredjobs, and also on the school website, both on 1/25. Job is listed as "open until filled" and the only description now is "The Department is seeking applications for one tenure-track specialist in postcolonial literature and theory." As a candidate who has been interviewed but did not receive a campus visit, I'm not sure if I am supposed to reapply or just accept that I'm not what they are seeking. (1/27)

Isn't it possible that they got a second line and they are going to make two hires? The job description is a bit different. (1/27)

  • Agree that a new line is a distinct possibility (even probablity, given difference in title of new job). Thus a new section for the new job ad has been created immediately below. Since this appears to be a distinctly different job, it would seem reasonable to reapply even if application for first job didn't go anywhere [1/27].
  • I find the possibility of a new line unlikely. In my interview, we discussed the title, and this first was definitely a postcolonial position, even though the title says "world anglophone." Besides, if there were a new line, why not simply advertise it in the same places as the first one? Perhaps they felt this time around they needed to be more direct about what they're looking for. It doesn't seem unlikely that they invited one person for a campus visit, but want to have more options (meaning, sadly, as the original poster suggests, that they weren't happy with the rest of the applicant pool). 
  • It's also possible that the re-posted or newly posted job is simply a mistake (glitches like this have been known to appear on HigherEdJobs.com in the past). I suppose the only way to find out for sure is to inquire with the dept. Particularly if you already did an interview for the first position, it seems like you'd have a warrant for asking about the mysterious second job (if only to know whether you should re-apply or whether your application might be carried over). It's understandable not to want to bother them, but it is a bit of an unusual situation.
  • It's very unlikely this is a new line. They probably didn't like the pool they got from the first job ad. This is actually a broader ad than the original, which suggests they are looking for more candidates. It is possible that they merely didn't have enough applicants and have been ordered by a dean to continue the search, or that the dean was disappointed in the caliber of their finalists, possibly even rejecting or postponing some of them. Or it could be the most likely reason, that the search committee or chair were disappointed. Though this kind of rejection is more difficult on the ego than the normal losing out to other excellent candidates, I will say the committee was lovely, asked poignant and engaging questions, and sold the department very well. I left the interview more intrigued by the job than I had been. I only wish I had known that they were looking for something different than their original ad. I wish the campus visitor luck and would encourage others who fit the broader description to apply.
  • From the department: there is no second position. We have no idea where this listing on higheredjobs.com came from. We were delighted with the applicants and the interviews, and are in the process of setting up 3-4 campus visits on a rolling basis. Very sorry for the confusion. We're sorting this out and removing the listing from higheredjobs.com. - Dohra Ahmad, STJ English
    • Thanks for the clarification. This isn't the first time HigherEdJobs has caused some confusion due to a technical error. Best of luck with your search. [1/28/13]

St. John’s University (NY) - Asst Prof, Postcolonial Literature and TheoryERROR Edit

  • I'm wondering that as well. I interviewed with the committee at MLA and they said that they would get back to candidates in late January to schedule a campus interview for sometime in February. They said they needed to meet with the larger search committee back on campus. But, then I see this 1/9 interview request and it makes me wonder if there is some sort of inside trading going on...In any case, I put an email in to the head of the committee and I will update if I get any useful information back.
  • No insider trading (though I'm not exactly sure what that means). Other campus visits were scheduled through last week or so. Probably just not by people posting here. (2/21)
