  • Summer 2015: 4 faculty members (tenure/tenure-track) quit because of the toxic environment. Beware of this school. This Department is notorious for destroying careers.
  • I'm a graduate student in this department. I sought out this program to work with one particular, noteworthy scholar. Much to my dismay, the program I had heard such great things about no longer existed when I began in the fall. The professors I have classes with this semester use high school style rubrics for grading, are not remotely current with contemporary trends in the field, openly admit to not being qualified to teach the courses they teach, have never published or conducted original research beyond their dissertations (all of their CVs are online, please look), and do not attend NCA or any regional conferences. Next semester, I will be taking communication theory using the same textbook I used in undergraduate: Littlejohn's Theories of Human Communication. This will be the fourth class (of 6) I will have had that relies exclusively on undergraduate material. I came to Angelo State University seeking mentorship from a nationally recognized critical scholar. My goal was to attend a doctoral program after ASU. However, the current faculty vocally do not support doctoral studies. I'm now coming to terms with just how ill-prepared I would be for continued study in the field. I am the most disappointed that I will never get to study what I came here to study with the scholar I came here to study with. Fortunately, he has made himself available to me and offered to mentor me on his own time in any way he can. Coming to ASU was a mistake. As a graduate student working on becoming a communication scholar, Angelo State University has crushed my dreams.

  • This is a full-time tenure-track position. Appointment at the Associate Professor level is a possibility, with an abbreviated probationary period leading to the tenure decision.
  • Candidates should have a PhD in communication, media studies, cultural studies, or a closely aligned field in hand at the start of employment.
  • In Spring 2016 the Washington College faculty and Board of Visitors & Governors approved a new major in Communication & Media Studies (CMS), a program that benefits from course contributions from multiple disciplines in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

We are seeking candidates who have the passion and expertise necessary to foster growth of this exciting new program.

However, the ideal candidate will also demonstrate a focus on a chosen area of interest that could inform course development, future scholarship, or the overall direction of the new major.
  • Teaching is a priority at Washington College; hence, the ability to teach Introduction to Media Studies, Intermediate Communication and Media Theory, and Research Methods in Communication and Media Studies is a must, though other teaching responsibilities will ultimately be tailored to the successful candidate's specific areas of expertise.
  • Full consideration of applicants will be given to candidates who submit application packets by October 1, 2016, though the search will remain open until the position is filled.

--> QUESTION: Is it better to be in a tenure-track job when applying to other TT jobs, or better to be in a post-doc or newly minted PhD (ABD)?  Thoughts from veteran search committee members / profs would be appreciated!!
>> COMMENT re: above: I can speak from experience when I say that the academic "two-step" is becoming a viable path to the tenure track in our field. The market is hyper-competitive right now (and has been for about 4-5 years), and anything "extra" you can do to set yourself apart will make you more marketable. As a result, more and more people are choosing to take a 1-2 year postdoc, fellowship, research associate, or visiting assistant prof position because (a) it helps to build your CV in real terms (new opportunities for research, teaching, etc) and (b) it sets you apart from all the other ABDs out there (you will have a PhD in hand, a new academic position, and new references -- all good things!).
>> COMMENT re: above: the answer is yes. It's better to have a TT job at a small college when looking for a new TT than to be ABD, on Post-Doc, or a Visiting Prof. Most importantly it's best to have a dissertation completed or with a set defense date these days, but those in the best position are those who already have some kind of security.
>> Comment: If there are only 7 of us here, who is updating the Wiki, and who are we competing against?
I believe that many people are just browsing.. I hope we can see more updates.. Waiting is killing me.
>>Comment: That the range for number of job apps sent out goes up to 40 made me dry heave... Is that common? I planned on applying to 8 total.   ø_ø
>> Comment: I think it really depends on how confident you are with your status. It is so time consuming but I am really not confident with it..
It probably depends on your sub-field and the competitiveness of said sub-field. I had 8 publications on the market last year and applied to 68 jobs - and landed in a VAP position. So, yes, I'm applying relatively widely.
Sent so many out you lost track:
I have become a walking application:
I started late in the game for one reason or another: 
I have sent out 20 so far and I am not backing down. My advisor thought I was applying to too many schools but I was able to convince her that we are in 2016 and not 1986.
As someone who is a search chair now and served on numerous search committees, I can tell those commenting above that too many applications is a bad idea. Here's why... How many of these applications are you truly tailoring to the job? When I say tailoring, I do not mean changing your letter by shifting a few plug-in switcharoo words and phrases.  Most of us on search committees see the same thing happening again and again and this includes letters that highlight that the candidate didn't read the ad, doesn't understand the job, college, or department, and letters that are clearly the same one sent to a ton of others places (sometimes listing the wrong place or faculty). All of this gets you knocked out of the pile almost instantly.
If you are applying to a teaching school and you wax on about your dissertation for two pages (or more than two paragraphs)- next. If the ad asks for key words and they are not present - next. If you do not attend to every single part of the job ad, especially the preferred - next. If the committee has to dig too much for the information they are seeking - next. Also, please do not tell committees that you are a great fit or that you align perfectly with the call, etc. Let them decide this. Also, do not send more materials than are requested.
Let me reiterate: If you are not writing a new, tailored letter for every place, you may be going straight into the NEXT pile. Some advisors suggest blanketing the field with form letters/applications, but I can assure you committees see right through this. Some places may wish to hire you solely based on your institution, a recommendor, or your pub count, but these jobs/departments may be few and far between. Is it worth the chance? I do not think so. Less applications that are more tailored and relate to the job call are always going to serve you better than more. Departments want to know that you have researched them thoroughly. Showing anything less is a waste of your time and a disservice to your process/potential. 
New comment re: the above: As a new assistant prof, I think that the comments above are spot-on. Here's the thing, tho: In this market, candidates need to both apply widely and thoroughly (i.e. customize every app). You need to embrace the challenge of putting in the time to customize 30-60 apps if you want to have your best shot of landing a job. It really doesn't take that long to research a school/dept and then figure out how to address the ad in that context. It just needs to be treated like a second job or primary co-curricular activity. When I was last on the market, the things I did in my life were teaching, writing, applying, and exercise. The leftover scraps of time were spent with my partner :).
Re: Tailoring Applications - Been in this game a very long time (30+ years). I spend several hours with each school figuring out what they need and what classes they are looking to cover, etc. The major issue is that every job description may as well have been copied and pasted. When you say committees see right through a copy/paste letter, why would you think we can't tell the same from job postings? If you would like better, more tailored applications, give a little more information in your call. Half the ones I've seen will just say "assistant in digital media." And that's it. I can't tell what is needed for a position description like that. Let's all work together on making both our calls for positions and our letters tailored to needs. It doesn't help that hires are often completely antithetical to what the original call of many jobs are.
Re: Comment above: In many, if not most cases, HR departments dictate what programs can do in regard to writing job advertisements. Therefore, it requires applicants to take some extra steps like looking at who is teaching what, where faculty expertise lies, curriculum gaps, concentration areas, and so on as you mention. If someone writes in a letter that says, "I look forward to teaching graduate students," in an undergraduate-only department, the department knows the person didn't take the time you do. I think you would be suprised at how many people are not putting in any time before sending out applications. If a department gets too specific, it can eliminate the majority of the applicants.
Re: Comment stream above - Yikes. The "tailor everything minutely" approach is, in my view, fundamentally unreasonable--it's a bad way to live as a grad student, and sets you up to live badly if you do get a position. Having gotten traction in two TT searches without doing that, and having both chaired and served on search committees, I can say with certainty that not all institutional cultures are as finickily self-involved as some seem to pride themselves on being. A very different, I think much saner, way of applying is to develop two or three basic letters: for R1, regional comprehensive, and SLAC schools.
The R1 letters work fine for R2 schools, which mostly are trying to become or be seen as R1s anyhow (but also need tweaking to show that your teaching is informed by/informs your research, in specific ways).  Regional comprehensives and (selective) SLACs are teaching-focused in meaningfully different ways and have different student demographics from both one another and R1s/R2s, by and large, so they should have different letters.  All of these, though, if they have basically decent departmental/institutional cultures, shouldn't require more tailoring than proceeds from a basically decent grasp of the discipline and some tinkering with your basic template letter to position yourself subfield-wise in the ways called for by the job ad. I can't speak to the non-selective SLACs at all; maybe they need more.
The arms race mentality that sees doing more of everything than everyone else as the key to success is--kind of self-evidently--bad for everyone. By all means, publish and teach your ass off and do all the things that are the real work of academia. And, of course, tailor letters to match the job ad and after having a look through faculty profiles and programs/courses taught on the departmental website. But anything beyond that is, for more places than not, wasted labor. Spend the time finishing another couple articles instead.
New Comment: Is it just me or everything is slow this year ?? I feel like this semester is almost over while seems like the majority of schools haven't made their offer yet. (I could be terribly wrong..)
