    • Received application acknowledgement email on September 23.
  • Is this a real job or advertisement for a green card application? Didn't they hire two people back in 2013? (August 23)
  • First question is obnoxious, and implication of latter option is unclear (xenophobia?). They do have two SAsianists listed as faculty members, and Mrinalini Sinha was there until a few years back. This is a large department full of serious scholars, and no reason to doubt validity of search absent evidence.
  • Question was not meant to be obnoxious -it was just a query - so please don't jump to unnecessary conclusions and make such statements(Xenophobia - how does that even apply?)!  I have applied to searches which were fake in that they were created to accommodate previous hires with their paperwork. It is a waste of effort on the applican's part. Given that most universities don't have two South Asian historians on their roster, their post for a third South asian historian seemed like a valid topic to discuss.
