NOTES:

Just curious. Any interviewees freaked out by the multiple terrorist attacks that have happened in Beirut in the past few months? Or the fact that the Syrian civil war seems to be very clearly spilling into Lebanon? Curious to see how recent events may hamper AUB's recruiting efforts.

  • I taught at AUB for a while and have followed recent events in Lebanon closely. While travel to Tripoli, Sidon, and Baalbek is not advised--at all--Beirut is safe, albeit a tense city. For tourism there is much to do in Mt. Lebanon, the Koura, and even in Tyre to the south. Or you can take a quick trip to Turkey, Greece or Cyprus! The campus and university area, Hamra, are also quite safe with a lively nightlife despite the political turmoil. Also, right now it looks like a unity government is in the offing which will stabilize the security situation. In fact you have a much greater chance of being mugged at the MLA, or at least having your wallet or purse snatched on Michigan Avenue. AUB is a fantastic place to teach and academically on par with the best the US has to offer. The interviewees should feel good about their selection, and if they visit the campus they will fall in love--it is easily one of the most beautiful campuses anywhere in the world. And who can quibble about a faculty apartment with a Mediterranean view?!

NOTES:

Does anyone know: when they say they want all documents as a single PDF, does that include the letters of reference?  I can't imagine they expect applicants to submit letters themselves, but how else does one submit letters?  What am I missing here?  

  • If you go onto the application website, the position description there now gives an email address to which letters of reference can be sent directly. [posted 9/30]
  • "In addition to applying online, please have three letters of recommendation sent to: yjoseph@ccny.cuny.edu."

Any inside track?  Job was posted 9/11 and deadline was 10/1 (even if it is unti position is filled); that is rather short.  

I sent an inquiry to the department chair before the deadline and never heard back. I heard back from all inquiries but this one, perhaps they have inside candidates...?

Nope- I have it on good authority that it's an open search.

Are interviews already scheduled for this one?

Has anyone heard anything at all?

  • I received the following in response to my inquiry on 12/18: "At this time, the Search Committee is in its final review of applications. 
  • Interviews MUST be scheduled by now, right? (I hope not...but someone put me out of my misery/false hope? It's 7 PM on Friday 12/20...)
  • Monday 12/23.  [Crickets ...]
  • Seriously!! Does anyone know what's going on here? (Has anyone asked today? I wrote a week ago, a day or two before the poster above, and got the same "final review" message...)
  • Well, all I can say is that a friend of a friend's friend is on the search committee, and when I inquired through the grapevine at the end of last week, the jury was still officially out. I've heard stories of the "old days" when people would get calls on Christmas Eve. Or maybe they're not interviewing at MLA? Though another CUNY school went to MLA last year, so....who knows?
  • Congrats to the interviewee who got a call on December 26.  Wow.

NOTES:

  • There might be an error in the description above re: "creative writing."  While the "position description" on  UC's website indicates a creative writing requirement, the "position qualification" paragraph does not.  Also, it appears that UC has two other lines open, one of which is a creative writing position. So, perhaps this is simply an error. I will email human resources in order to clarify. (9/1)
  • Although HR didn't respond, the chair of the dept. did, and he confirmed that there is no creative writing requirement for this job. The job posting is incorrect. (9/7)
  • Thanks for checking. Marked out "Creative Writing" part above. (9/7)
  • What does it mean when an appointment is both three years and tenure track?
  • Possibly that there is a third-year review prior to the tenure year? (it's a common practice)
