  • List Updates Here:
  • Is this different from the above post? Not TT?
  • This was a separate call and seems to be for a generalist. I believe the above post was incorrect when saying "tenure track."  Both calls indicated renewable contract. 
  • Regarding the question of "tenure" vs. "non-tenure," according to the UFF Collective Bargaining Agreement : "19.2 Eligibility.(a) Faculty members with the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor, Assistant Librarian, Associate Librarian, Librarian, Assistant Curator, Associate Curator, or Curator shall be eligible for tenure. The University may designate other positions as tenure-accruing." So, since the position is labeled "Assistant Professor," it seems as though it is a tenure-eligible position. The phrasing of this job posting (and the above) is, of course, somewhat confusing because of the whole "9-month, multi year" qualification. However, that seems to just be standard procedure for how the UFF specifies jobs. For example, the UFF Collective Bargaining Agreement also indicates: "Appointments are classified by title, rank, duration, degree of effort, and tenure status."  Along those lines, there can be 9-month, 10-month, or 12-month appointments, and those distinctions each entail corresponding implications for compensation, vacation leave, service expectations, etc. In sum, (1) based solely on the designation "Assistant Professor," it appears that the positions should be tenurable; and (2) it doesn't appear that the "9-month, multi-year" qualification has any bearing on the positions' tenurability.
  • Thanks for looking into this, everyone.

Kutztown University of Pennsylvania (PA) - CAMPUS VISIT STAGEEdit

  • Is this possibly posted in the wrong place? The deadline for full consideration isn't until January!
  • A friend was contacted yesterday asking for references for this position, and so I do not believe the above comment regarding campus interviews is correct. Perhaps Kutztown has multiple positions (?). 1/13
  • Got an email saying that they would start the initial review on January 18, so I'm guessing that this is either a different job or posted in error.
  • Kutztown is hiring for three positions. I just got back from a site visit for the interpersonal position (2/9), and they told me they're bringing in candidates for the Advocacy/Discourse position this week and next, and for the Organizational position the last week of Feb and first week of March.

Marist College - OFFER MADEEdit

  • Phone interviews scheduled between 2/15 through 2/25
  • Invitation for campus visit (3/9)
  • Campus Visits Held (4/4-4/15?)
  • I was told there are four candidates, does someone know for sure that campus interviews end on Friday?
  • I had a campus interview last week (4/7) and was told that there was one more candidate visiting "next week."
  • Thanks for confirming, now for the waiting, the committee told me they intended to make their decision quickly, however that is a relative term in our field.
  • Hah, true enough!  If there were four candidates invited at least between the two of us we have a 50/50 chance they still haven't decided (that's how math works, right?).  That or one of the other two is having a really good weekend.
  • Still haven't heard anything (4/20).  I'm guessing that means an offer has been extended and they're waiting to hear back before sending rejections?
  • IDK, since interviews just finished last week, they may still be deliberating, and the offer needs to be approved by the dean before it is made. I am going to give it until the end of the week until I assume an offer has been made - and even then, their first choice may not accept, so this process could drag out until May.
  • I like your optimism!  I certainly hope it's one of the two of us!
  • Sent the search committee chair an e-mail yesterday (4/26) to see if there was any timeline update, and received no response.
  • That doesn't really surprise me, because I would imagine that either a) they have not yet made an offer  - still only a week and half out from interviews, it is entirely possible that they haven't made the offer yet or b) they made the offer but it is still in negotiations, in which case, they cannot tell us anything, because if that person doesn't accept they will go down the list. If we are not the first choice, we won't be told anything until their offer is accepted and they have a signed contract. Or c) she is just not responding quickly and you will get a response in the next few days - in which case you should definitely update us all here.
  • Still nothing heard back, more than a month after campus interviews.
  • Heard from a reliable source that an offer has been made and is in the process of being accepted.
  • I've accepted that I've certainly not been offered the job, but I'm quite miffed that almost two months after a campus visit I've not heard a thing back from the department or school.  Is there a page on this wiki to note such experiences?

I can't imagine them receiving anything less than hundreds of applications.<--If you haven't heard anything by now, is it not "game over?"
  • Request for letters of rec and writing sample (1/6, x2) <-----3wwj4jtbTc-4.png
  • ^ YAAAAAAS. me too. fuuuuuuuuuu
  • hahahahhaha; I'm sorry, I didn't get a request either, but I almost just spit out my coffee when I saw this.
  • I heard they had over 750 applications for this one, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • ^ seriously? 750? i mean, that is 750 different dissertations, 750 different ideas, 750 different people. one job. what are we even doing here, people?? 
  • ^ that describes one type of candidate. There were probably hundreds of assistant professors stuck in the middle of nowhere vying for the opportunity to work in NYC ... I'm sure I wasn't the only one :-( ...
  • ^ You're probably right. But hey, *in theory* we're in a field that we can leave to pursue work in the private sector, particularly in New York ;) Look on the bright side!
  • ^ lol, that's a nice gesture, but you must not be trained in post-psychoanalytic discourse analysis. Not a lot of work outside of academia for a fella like me! But that's cool that you have options. 
  • ^^GEEEZUZ CHRIISST!!! All of you are so angry and melancholy ... get over it or get out of academia ...this is a game, like the game of life, you play hard or stay on the sidelines kids.
  • ^^ F-U ... who gives you the right to tell us how to feel about the job market? Who are you? Are you going to govern how your peers feel? Judging by the eloquence of your "game of life" analogy I doubt you're in any position to know anything about anything.   (x2!! back this 100%. also, when you're hoping to be able to feed your family being angry or melancholy at missing out on another job is a-ok by me) 
  • ^^But it IS a game isn't it? Also, "feeding your family" in NYC?? Are you serious?? NYC is the last place to try and raise a family on an academic's pay, unless you teach at Med/MBA/JD program at NYU or Columbia ... on second thought, try San Francisco, I hear its much "cheaper."
  • ^^ [Original "F-U" poster here]: I do agree that it IS a game, but I don't agree with the other poster's judgment on our emotional expressions. Personally, since being a TT AP at a fairly low ranked school, I've been working my butt off to get into top rank journals and to accrue external funding. I keep winning research awards where I am, and year after year am hoping that SOMETHING comes along which will take me and my family out of the lackluster university town and the dead-eyed colleagues I'm sentenced to ... anyway, whatev. But, ftr, I'd take NYC with my starving family over this shithole any day, and my family agrees.
  • ^I suppose it's not always about money, but "starving in NYC" with your family? Wow, you have a very forgiving family ... lack of $$ and finance issues creates a host of problems, including the road to divorice/seperation/infidelity.  I suppose if you are a "trust-fund kid" or have a nice nest-egg, $$$ is not an issue - I guess you would not be "starving" then, but NS doesnt pay well, even for NYC standards, so I get that living in a shithole takes a psych toll, but eating top ramen and living in shoebox in NYC with your partner/kids will as well. Be careful what you wish for ... now as another poster mentioned, if you get a gig at Columbia/NYU, that's a game-changer.
  • Let's all support each other. Best wishes to everyone with this challenging process.
  • Skype Interview Scheduled (1/12 x2)

Also, the Media Industries spot is a holdover from a failed search last year, so there may well be someone already in mind for that as well. Just a heads up.
  • NU faculty here. Three things. (1) We don’t do searches with predetermined outcomes. Even when someone has been “targeted” (encouraged to apply), there are no guarantees; several such searches have not gone the way one might have thought. (2) Because we’re a financially well-off private university, with suitable applicants it’s possible that one line magically turns into two; I’ve seen it happen. (3) Sometimes an applicant gets noticed but not hired (“not really what we have in mind for this position, but really interesting”)—and then gets hired in a subsequent search; seen that happen too. Bottom line: don’t be discouraged from applying on the basis of who you think is in the pool.
  • ^^#3 I had campus interview for job -- not at NU -- that I didnt get (VAP got the job). Got a call 3 months later saying they had another TT line and asking if I was still available (I was not).
  • Any news on this? (11/6)

  • Committee said we'd hear in the first few weeks of January - but so far radio silence. Has anyone else had any concrete communication from someone on the search committee after their Skype interview (respectfully, please refrain from conjecture or rumor - it's not helpful for those of us really hoping for the next stage at some of these places).
  • Thank you so much for your reply! I am in the same boat, so perhaps that is a sign that they have not yet let people know about campus interviews (or we both didn't make the cut!). Again, I appreciate your reply because a month of wondering can drive one crazy. It's good to know you've also had silence.
  • I have also not heard anything. So either 3 people didn't make the cut, or there is still no update.
  • Still nothing? I was told they wanted to bring people out before February so I am losing hope.
  •  It's not inappropriate to ask, especially if you might be scheduling interviews elsewhere. I'd recommend contacting the search chair, say you're excited about the position and you want to keep your schedule as flexible as possible since you know their timeline. If they like you and haven't moved forward yet, they'll be eager to keep you up to date (as much as HR will let them). If you aren't one of their top picks, they might just ignore you or simply say the search hasn't closed yet. In short, don't be afraid to be proactive (just don't be too aggressive).

Social scientists and humanists are both encouraged to apply. 
  • Tenure-track faculty members perform research and service consistent with peer research universities and teach on a 2/2 load.

  • Agreed, but FWIW it's not much better in the private sector. 
  • Is there any confirmation of the Skype interviews? It may be bad info?
  • I can confirm that the Skype interviews happened on 11/10.
  • It's incredibly common for schools to avoid sending rejections until the entire process is over. I have actually been on a search committee where two of our top three candidates did not have very good campus interviews and we were considering going back to the larger pool because no one in the phone interview stage stood out. So why reject everyone else until someone is actually hired? On that note--I know someone with a campus interview here. So the Skype info was not bad info.
