NOTES:

I applied for this one a few weeks ago, and recieved no confirmation of my application. I went on the D'Youville website to see if I could find an email address through which to check in. The job posting is gone.

The ad at HigherEdJobs (link above) says "Position Deleted on 10/12/2011" and that the ad is "no longer active" on that site. Not clear, though, whether this means the job has been cancelled or they're just no longer accepting applications. It does not seem to have been advertised in the MLA JIL at all. The start date was early (January 2012), so perhaps the postition has already been filled?
