Yale University - Art Historian with Specialization in American Art (Open Rank)Edit

Due:  November 1, 2012

First Interview:

  • Any news on this one? (No 1/8; No 1/25 x2)
  • Another poster deleted my earlier comment, so I'll rephrase it as a question: does anybody believe there is still a chance here? I'm under the impression that this ship has sailed. I have no inside information; it's just that November 1 was a long time ago, this is an open rank search, etc. Thoughts? (and please don't delete others' comments!) 1/26  
  • I applied to see if I could get a practice interview, since I assume they will choose the candidate in advance and then hold a mock competition . . . My assumption is that if you need to ask, you probably aren't the one.  This is only based on how I think things work at Ivies -- no inside knowledge.  1/26
  • Keep in mind that they have three searches going on right now, two of them open rank, plus graduate admissions -- so it's more likely that the committees are simply buried in files than that they have already determined their favorites. If they invite you for an interview at any stage, you can trust that they are sincerely interested in what you have to offer. (If there's one generalization I can make about the Ivies, or at least this department, it's that they tend not to waste their time on sham interviews.) (1/27)
  • Received email stating that review of applications is still in process. 1/29 (x5) etc?
  • as a prior grad student in this dept, I think that they will hire senior, not junior, and that they frequently invite "guest lecturers" to campus beyond the scope of any active searches, and make sure students show up.  these are the true candidates.  however, I agree, as above poster stated, they do sincerely invite people they are interested in from the "pile."  And truly engage with the work.  It is an honor, but it will not land you a job, but rather, an opportunity down the road. IMHO.  (2/6)
  • skype interview scheduled 2/17
  • Anyone else scheduled for an interview, or just this one?  Odd that this and one of their other searches seem to show one skype interview each--and the third seach has no evidence of interviews at all.  Perhaps it's all happening at a level above Wiki traffic. (2/27)

Rejection:

  • It would make the Wiki a lot less creepy if people from Yale would stop updating Yale listings from on campus. Yes, I realize this may be a student, in which case we appreciate the information you are sharing, but this is the second or third post of this sort this year in Art History alone (and at least one of the others was really shilling for the department). Cool it, kids, we get it.
  • Are you kidding? I'm extremely grateful that someone has graciously been posting, otherwise we'd all be consumed with anxiety longer than neccessary throughout this process. It's great that is reliable and from someone from the actual institution, and even better that someone there is aware of the perceptions/prejudgices/jealousies in academia of elite Ivies as closed systems and old boys clubs. Still better that they can offer evidence to the contrary this year.
    • Fair enough. I've noticed two trends on the Wiki in recent years, neither of which (in my opinion) bodes well for its long term health -- a) less posting by the candidates themselves (including *much* less posting of their names, and erasing of names after they become public knowledge via department websites and course schedules -- you WANT this job, people, why take your name down once you have it, the negotiations are over, and the news is public?!); and b) a greater awareness and monitoring of the Wiki by search committees and department members. As long as the latter does nothing to chill open discussion by candidates -- the Wiki's primary purpose -- there's really nothing to object to, but for me, this year's Yale comments, particularly the one defending the departmental search practices as models of openness and virtue (despite plenty of anecdotal evidence to the contrary), have made me wonder whether departments are beginning to see it as their prerogative to post on their own searches. I don't *know* that's what's happening here -- as I said, it may well be a student -- but I have wondered, which, for me, has the chilling effect I'd prefer not to see.

Johns Hopkins University - Western Medieval and Byzantine (Open Rank, 2 positions) Edit

The Department of the History of Art at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for two full-time positions in Western Medieval and Byzantine art and/or architectural history respectively. Ranks open, with either tenure-track or tenured appointments possible; salary for each position will be commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the candidate (Ph.D. at time of application is required). Candidates should submit a letter of application (addressed to Medieval Search Committee, Department of the History of Art), a current CV, three letters of reference (applicants at the tenured level should instead include the names of three references in their letter of application), and one article- or chapter-length sample of scholarly writing (published or in-press). JHU History of Art uses Interfolio to collect all faculty job applications electronically; to apply, please follow this link (to the landing page): www.interfolio.com/apply/11207.

Review of applications will begin August 30, 2012, and continue until both positions are filled.

  • Curious if there's been any movement on these? (Oct. 13) I haven't heard a thing other than the request to fill out the EO data (Oct. 30 x 3)

Position 1: First Round Interview: (none)

Position 1 Rejection:  Check. (honestly, did they send rejection letters out already?) -- I don't know about letters, but finalists for the first position were notified that an offer was made. 

Position 1 Campus Interview:

  • First round of campus visits is underway. A second round is supposed to take place in the spring.
  • (11/19) Thank you for posting that- do you know if the present interviews are for the Medieval line or the Byzantine line? or are they interviewing both Med. and Byz. at the same time?
  • It seems they are looking at tenure-level people first (in both Med. and Byz.). Presumably they will turn their attention to junior people in the spring. [Thank you again for posting this! you've saved me, and I'm sure others, from a dark winter full of needless anxiety and speculation.]

Position 1 Offer:  An offer has been made (Out of curiousity, Western Medieval or Byzantine?). -- Western.

Position 2 First Interview: (My guess is that there won't be a skype/conference interview given their past practices)

Any news on the second position? Yes, any news on anything?

Position 2 Campus Interview:   Invitations to junior candidates have been extended. (Congrats to those invited and break a leg!)

Position 2 Offer: (any final news on this?) x2 [yeah, whatever happened with these- is it really true they both failed?] Failed search for position 1. Position 1 did not fail. -- Search for a tenured scholar failed. The Position 1 hire was made at the Assistant level (though the person is very established and deserves tenure by any reasonable standards). 

Do you know for a fact that the senior search "failed," or just that they are having to recalibrate? 

  • Recalibrate? It'll take a little more than that. As the saying goes, 'there's no such thing as a failed search, only a failed department.'  
  • The suggestion that JHU's department has failed is ridiculous on it's face. "recalibration" might be a euphemism for "go to candidate number 2." Because no one has confirmed that the search has in fact "failed." 
  • It is a tried and true axiom: given the incredible wealth of talent nowadays in any pool, there is no excuse that any open rank search should fail other than departmental dysfunction, even should they initially give offers to senior candidates who use and decline offers simply to get a raise at their present institution. 
  • Just because the search for position one may have failed (and many signs point to yes), does not mean that the search for position two will fail. However, if both searches fail that seems to send some disturbing signals about the department. 
  • Does anyone know what's happening re: the search for the junior position, and whether an offer has been extended? 
  • An offer has been made in the second search.
  • Failed searches can happen in any department, primarily because the question of "fit" is a really difficult one to work out in advance of actually going through the process.  Searching is a process, not a ready-made formula.  In any case, with respect to Hopkins, they've made a whole slew of adventurous new faculty hires in a range of different fields this year.
    • A junior western medievalist is indeed listed for 2013-14 courses (N. Zchomelidse, formerly an assistant professor at Princeton); however, it appears that they were unable to fill the Byzantine position.
    • They made two junior hires in western medieval (not hearsay).

    • 'Early Modern' art is conventionally understood to cover the period ca.1350-1750 (i.e Renaissance, Baroque, and often 18th Century). This ad uses that label, but calls for a candidate whose expertise runs from ca.1750-1950

First Interview: CAA interview scheduled 1/18 (x2).

I was contacted 1/18 as well, but I couldn't attend CAA due to financial limits; when I told UNLV, they said perhaps they'd contact me if they didn't have enough CAA interviews from their short list. I emailed them the week after CAA to ask if I could still have a long-distance interview and I've never heard from them. I deduce from this that they are not very worried about discriminating against people based on their socio-economic status and in all honesty, I don't want to work for a school like that anyway (3/6). The department is conducting something like four searches at the same time. I imagine they are thoroughly overwhelmed (3/7)

University of Southern California - 2 Positions, Open Rank in Modern (post-1800) and/or Contemporary (post 1945)Edit

The Department of Art History in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, California, invites applications for two positions, open-rank, in Modern (post-1800) and/or Contemporary (post-1945) art history. The appointments may be made as tenured or tenure-track (Professor, Associate Professor, or Assistant Professor of Art History) and are anticipated to start in Fall 2013. The successful candidates will be excellent scholars with the ability to examine art and visual culture from varied perspectives, and will be expected to teach and mentor both graduate and undergraduate students. Senior scholars should have demonstrated potential to be departmental leaders.

Applicants at the assistant professor level should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. Applicants at the tenured associate or full professor level should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and the names of at least three references. All candidates should have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment.

Applications must be received by November 20 to Professor Vanessa Schwartz, Chair, Modern and/or Contemporary Search, Department of Art History, ahisfacultysearch@dornsife.usc.edu. In order to be considered for this position, all candidates must also apply via the "Apply for this Posting" here: https://jobs.usc.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=66578.

First Interview: senior level candidates are being interviewed now. They have contacted no junior level candidates yet.(1/10/13) 

  • Many thanks for the update!
  • Does this also mean that all of the senior candidates have been contacted? One would assume yes at this point. 
  • Have junior-level candidates been contacted? I would also assume yes at this point as well.  Word on the streets is that this not a jr. level search and aren't interviewing anyone jr. (1/30). I heard the same (1/30)  If this is true, I wish they wouldn't have waisted junior candidates time by posting it as an open position. (1/31) previous poster: "open rank" is always code for senior. (2/6) Word on the street: they will try to hire sr. first (since they don't have many sr. faculty right now, but sr. facutly don't always want to move institutions). If that doesn't work or they don't find the right fit, they'll move on to Associate and perhaps Assistant. I don't think it was a question of wasting folks' time but rather not knowing what fish were in the sea (and how things would unfold). (2/7) Word is there are 2 (quasi-) power couples being courted. If this is a determined strategy, armchair opinion is the search will fail. (2/18) As a former grad student at USC, I have to say the previous comment could not be more on the mark. When I was a student there several attempts at getting senior scholars, especially couples, to teach in the dept. ended up failing; the dept. could really use several more junior scholars, but they seem determined to focus on senior scholars (2/19). That's what happens when senior scholars leave.
