  • Such a wide open search and it only took a week, sounds fishy!
  • I know someone who got an interview invitation and I can assure you that s/he has no connections at all to the university, if that is what is being implied here (they are probably moving fast because it is already mid-April and presumably they have classes that need to be staffed and contracts that need to be signed?)
  • There seems to be a lot of faculty from some of these prestigious institutions that are posing as applicants sharing information...I am certain that's not the case here ....of course 

Louisiana State University - Central European HistoryEdit

  • Tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Central European history, beginning in August 2014.
  • Apply online and view a more detailed ad at: http://www.lsusystemcareers.lsu.edu. Position #022653. Three letters of recommendation should be sent to Professor Suzanne Marchand, Chair of the Search Committee, at the Department of History, 224 Himes Hall, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or electronically to smarch1@lsu.edu.
  • Review of applications will begin 1 Dec. 2013.
  • Does anyone know why they are looking for a Central Europeanist when the person reviewing the applications does modern Germany?  Perhaps she is moving elsewhere?
  • I believe their Habsburg historian is retiring.
  • I'm still confused, because, though he is of retiring age, he seems to do even more Eastern Europe than he does Central Europe. If he is retiring, it means they have no one to cover Eastern Europe, making it puzzling that they would put out a Central Europe job call rather than a Central/Eastern Europe--or simply Eastern Europe.  Makes me wonder if it really is him.  They also say it is a prospective opening.  hmmm....
  • Much to the dismay of some, not all of Central Europe is in Germany. 
  • Ah ah... tell that to the Journal Central European History which only accepts submissions on German-speaking areas.
  • AHA interview request 12/6 (x 2)
  • Any news on Campus interviews?
  • Campus interviews took place in late Jan/early Feb. An offer has since been made and accepted.

  • Wow, forgive me for being catty, but the retiring person they are replacing has an "A.B.D." in history and claims to teach using the "lecture method."
  • You're forgiven for making fun of an old person. 
  • Yay!
  • You may want to rethink this comment as the person being replaced passed away earlier this year.
  • I think that makes the comment all the more hilarious.
  • Has anybody been contacted yet about an interview/writing samples etc? (01/08).

  • Deadline: 1 Nov. 2013
  • Intend to interview at the AHA
  • Any info? I wonder how many applicants there were, and whether anyone's heard back yet? (11/12)
  • I haven't heard anything yet, but it's still very early! I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't send out AHA interview requests till December.
  • From the how many there were standpoint, you won't be happy: I learned from HR that by mid-day on 1 Nov they'd had 210 applicants. --> Wow, thanks for info. As for interviews, I would hope they'd  give interviewees who are not otherwise attending a little more notice than that to book tickets and hotels, alas...
  • Request for Phone Interview (11/13) (x2)
  • If feeling generous would you mind saying what field and period you study? And on a different note, I find it surprising (suspicious?) that the search committee read 210 (based on the figure above) applications, met, and deliberated in 10 days to narrow a list of phone candidates. 
  • The person who stated a request for phone interview may have posted to the wrong position.  Spoke with HR - 230 applicants total, still under review, no decisions made, unclear if they will perform phone interviews at all
  • Nope, I also got a email request for a phone interview on 11/13, so this is not a mistake. PS: for the person above who asked, I am a medievalist.
  • I also got an email request for a phone interview, also a medievalist.
  • Phone request for interview; medievalist, 11/15.
  • Best of luck to those selected. 
  • Apparently, the phone interviews were a way to narrow down the pool for the AHA interviews. They are still planning to interview at AHA.
  • Any sense of whether all AHA interviewees received phone interviews, or if the phone interviews constituted a particular subset of that pool? [11/22]
  • I'm pretty sure this the phone interview was a first cut, and that the AHA interviewees would be chosen exclusively from the pool of candidates who had phone interviews.
  • Email request for AHA interview [11/25] x2
  • Request for Campus Interview [1/16]
  • rejection email received [3/8]

  • I've heard nothingl, but see Universities to fear if you get on on campus.
  • Posted this on Universities to fear but it isn’t showing up anymore (deleted?). Interviewed with them in 2013 and was asked if I was married and "how many" kids I had.  Then if I wanted to have kids.  (I guess employment laws don't apply at Sam Houston) During my job talk one professor stood for half the talk and then stomped out. In the second job talk (made me give two that day) one of the professors read his mail and another was asleep.  Later, I overheard two male professors saying that I was "easy on the eyes" and commenting on my legs while one of them did some sleazy impersonation. <--this post is also still available on Universities to fear (see "Current Issues" section) [1/26].

  • Review begins: 1 Nov 2013 & although this position will remain open until filled... best consideration will be gained for materials submitted prior to that date.
  • Anyone know what the teaching load is at UNLV? 
  • Online app only requires a list of references. When I submitted the app I got an email with further instructions for submitting 3 letters via email, due Nov. 15.
  • Anybody have any news on this one? (11/13)
  • Weird. I submitted this app, I also submitted a list, but never heard anything about submitting letters. In effect, I've never submitted letters for this job. I emailed them to see if this was right, and they never returned my email. 11/15/13 Update: I emailed them and they confimed that my app is complete, but they still don't have letters. So I guess they aren't concerned with them at the moment. (x2 re: submission, tho' I didn't follow up).
  • I also got the email about references and had them submitted.  Any word on interviews and whatnot?
  • Nope (11/20)
  • Invitation for AHA interview (12/5) (x3)
  • Fields?
  • Modern Eastern Europe
  • Early Modern Europe and Mediterranean
  • Modern Central Europe
  • Modern France
  • Email saying that I'm an "alternate" for AHA interviews and that my application is still open, and that they received over 300 applications. Treating this as a rejection, though it's nice to know I was close. (12/11) 
  • Rejection via email (12/11)(x2)
  • Wierd. I have recieved zero emails. I wonder what MY status is!
  • Check your spam folder. I have found job market updates ("luckily," no positive ones) and correspondance on journal articles hiding in spam thanks to an overly-zealous filter.
  • During interview yesterday the committee stated that the department will meet to vote on who to invite for campus visits on Jan. 22, and that no decisions will be made until then. Usual teaching load is a 3-3 (2-2 with an active research agenda). I was unable to attend the AHA due to a family emergency, and the search committee was very accommodating and conducted a phone interview instead. Whoever gets this job will be among excellent colleagues.
  • Has anyone heard anything? The suspense is killing me. . .
  • Campus visit invite (1/22)
  • Would the lucky candidate mind sharing her/his field? Was the invite made via phone or email?

  • Any news? Perhaps it is too soon. (Dec 7) 
  • Doesn´t feel too soon. The waiting for this position is killing me. Fingers crossed for everyone. 
  • Invitation to interview by skype via email (Dec. 10)
  • Invitation for campus interview (Jan. 3rd)
  • Rejection email received (Jan. 6)
  • Weird. I wasn't interviewed, but I also haven't received a rejection yet. I've already counted this job out, but is anyone else in this position?
  • yup. I've found that to be typical in the past- they only send rejections to people who were viable candidates to start with. let that sink into your self esteem.
  • rejections often go out in waves, nothing strange about that. And people who received an interview often get the first round, as they are the ones most uncertain about their status and most in need of updates from that school. Everyone should get a rejection at some point - if not, that's poor form.
  • Received mine today (Jan. 10) - stating that they received 250 applications and had a short list of 15. Also, that their needs narrowed because of a retirement: "In particular, our needs for someone knowing Latin among other languages, able to engage with the Mediterranean basin, possessing a certain pedagogical experience, and likely to finish their dissertation on time if the latter was not already in hand, became more acute after the unexpected retirement announcement." I presume this was meant to soften the blow.
  • x2
  • Its true.  the retirement brought specific needs to the fore so it wasn't just to soften the blow...

  • SHORT Deadline: noon (GMT) 24 Oct. 2013
  • Any word on this? With such a short deadline I would have expected a very rapid turnaround.
  • ​Yes, wondering if anyone has heard anything (7 Nov) - apps closed 2 weeks ago today & I assume they will need to interview soon? 
  • I heard something about an inside hire (12 Nov)
  • Received rejection via e-mail 12 November. It said I was not "shortlisted," but realistically since I was a U.S. candidate I would guess that I (understandably) was cut early in the process.

  • See full announcement here
  • For full consideration: 20 Jan. 2014 but position open until filled
  • Also posted at Medieval (Literature) 2014
  • These kinds of postings are getting annoying.

  • Review begins: 1 Dec. 2013 and continues until position filled
  • Any news? Not clear what the timeline is here.  [12 December]
  •  I corresponded with the Chair in early December, and he said they were meeting as a committee the first week of Dec and expected to have a short list at the end of last week. Haven't heard anything since (12 December).
  • Email request for skype/video interview (16 Dec)
  • Email stating that they will be contacting the shortlist of ten for phone interviews over the next two days and that if you are not contacted then "it does NOT mean you have been eliminated from consideration." Are some people getting this email and others getting the direct request for a phone (or Skype) interview?  [x2]
  • Appears so; received a direct request for a Skype interview in January.
  • I think we have to be critical and honest to admit that 'it does NOT mean you have been eliminated from consideration' means PRECISELY 'it DOES mean you have been eliminated from consideration'. The hiring committee did not want to say it directly. Those who did not get the direct request for a Skype interview, will NOT be contacted until February (and obviously,only to be adviced that the position has been accepted by somebody else). Such indirect policy is, alas, still undertaken by some schools.
  • Exactly. No SC that has reviewed what are likely to have been 200+ applications is going to need to go past the ten on their shortlist. It was a very nice email, and I honestly got the impression that the SC was trying to be reassuring in a lousy market, but once it was clear that some were getting invitations and the others consolation that was, ultimately, it. "Though you are no longer under consideration, we appreciate your applying and wish you the best of luck" would be far kinder in the long run. (+1)
  • I actually think there was so much selfishness and improper arrogance in that email. Consider the following sentence 'being on this committee has just been so humbling, to see these type of qualifications on nearly every c.v'. Are they trying to reassure us that we are more talented, even though we are jobless, while they perform worse, even though they are tenured, and that this situation is now a status quo? Why on earth would anyone say that phrase? This is a typical example of their inability to achieve any degree of sympathy (let alone, emphathy) with our generation of young 'disinherited' scholars.  
  • I agree with the comments above, but I will add that I thought it was very considerate of the committee to  update the candidates on the status of the search in a timely manner. At least now I can cross this off my list and move on.

  • "An active research program along with the ability to teach courses in medieval and early modern history, as well as survey courses in Western Civ and/or world history, is required.  Applications are encouraged from candidates with interests in the history of science, religion, or global networks."

  • Deadline for full consideration: 16 Sept. 2013.
  • Request for additional materials 24/09/2013. email indicates skype interviews mid-late october; on campus in november. Apparently long-list already compiled...
  • should i assume this is a lost cause then if i haven't been contacted? [1/10/2013]
  • it is conceivable that the committee asked for additional materials from ABDs to gauge their status, while moving others directly to a long-list of people that haven't yet been contacted. But it isn't likely if that timeline is accurate. I have to say that, although there may be good reasons for it, it is slightly shady to run a search whose timeline is so far ahead of the "normal" one.
  • Sorry, but, move on, they've got their list. I don't see anything at all shady about this search. The early deadline made it abundantly clear what they intended to do and how early they wanted to finish. OSU is going to get an excellent hire, save themselves and at least one candidate the (financial and mental) cost of an AHA interview, and give someone the Christmas present of their dreams. With skype, I see no reason to inflict the cattle call on any fellow human being, and suite interviews are only slightly better. Good luck to everyone in this meager year.
  • Email request for Skype interview (2) [posted 11 Oct.]
  • Invitation for campus visit received. [24 Oct.]
  • ^^Well, shoot. Good luck, finalists.
  • My thoughts exactly, so much for the skype interview. I think they're hunting for a religious studies person masquerading as an historian, if the questions I got are anything to go by...
  • Congratulations and good luck, finalists!
  • Offer made and accepted.

  • Anyone hear about campus visits? (12/18) Not yet (12/20). Not yet (12/27) - cue hyperventilation.
  • Any official word as to what's happening? Not yet (01/07). The chair of the search is listed on the program for a UCLA conference around 01/24, so presumably no one will be brought to campus before then.... and perhaps half the ctte is now stuck in limbo after the AHA conference, unable to return to Chicago....

  • Don't know whether they are supping from the well again.....
  • It is possible the search failed; the Colonial North America search failed this year.
  • To lose one search may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness

  • Yes, broadly, and so is someone else who has been asked for materials. Both a few years after PhD.  (I can confirm that a 2nd Renaissance scholar, also a few years after PhD, was asked for materials.)
  • Wow. Congrats to those who have moved on to the next round - I haven't even received a confirmation that they received my application! 3x
  • Have others received confirmation? Also, for those who have been contacted, can you confirm whether they are now at the second stage of the process?  
  • Not yet. We're supposed to hear back sometime in December.
  • Can anyone confirm whether Chicago has sent out confirmations that they received applications? Im looking at the online application page and it still says that the "Status" of my application is still "in progress." Is this normal? 
  • Yes, this is normal. This system, similar to those used in many other colleges/universities, does not send out confirmation emails. Usually, if your application were not complete, it would say "incomplete" under one of the columns when you check "application status." "In progress" simply means that the process of selecting a hire continues, whether or not the actual review of applications is ongoing or not. Based on the comments above, I would say that if you have not been contacted to provide materials, chances are that you, like me, did not make the first cut. 11/22

  • Deadline: 12 Dec. 2013
    • Intend to interview at the AHA
    • Email acknowledgement of postal mail application (12 December)
    • AHA interview scheduled (12/14) (x2)
    • AHA interview scheduled (12/16) (x2)
    • The deadline was just two days ago, and they've already contacted people for interviews?!  (That does seem exceptionally fast, maybe this was an update meant for the Modern Jewish search above?)
    • Wild speculation, but this looks fishy. They intend to interview at AHA but had the deadline so late? And a bizarrely high number of faculty from same CA institution.
    • Why so fishy?  Also got contacted for an interview. I assume that most applications were in a while ago, as that's when others had deadlines, thus many sent out at the same time.
    • Congrats and I'm sure you and others are well-deserving of the interviews. I would just add that it is not standard protocol, given most SC's have been bogged down with 100-200 applications, that an SC would treat all those apps and turn around with interviews in less than 2 days. Many searches can take several weeks to go through materials, even if some sizable number were received in advance. Anyway, good luck!
    • I just had an AHA scheduled with them as well, this morning.  I'm assuming as well that people applied well advance of the deadline (I did), and the committee did a rolling review up until the deadline.
    • Invited to On-Campus Interview (1/16)
    • Offer made (2/18)

Liverpool John Moores University (UK) - European political and/or International Affairs/Global HistoryEdit

Lycoming College (PA)- w/Asian HistoryEdit

  • Tenure track assistant professor in Modern European History, to begin Fall 2014
  • Phd must be in hand by August 2014
  • "Successful candidates will be prepared to offer the survey course in the history of Western Civilization (1500-present) as well as more advanced courses exploring major intellectual, social, and political movements since the eighteenth century. The holder of this position will also teach a survey of Asian history. Further courses may be added based on field of specialization in areas the department desires, such as womens/gender history, the history of European imperialism, or the Age of Revolutions."
  • "Interested applicants should send a cover letter (addressing teaching and research interests and availability for conference interviews), statement of teaching philosophy, c.v., transcripts, student evaluations if available, a writing sample (for example, a published article or dissertation chapter), and at least three letters of reference...Digital submission of documents is preferred."
  • Deadline: 8 Nov. 2013
    • Intend to interview at the AHA
    • Is this ad targeted towards someone in particular, given the strange addition of asian history? It seems unlikely that anyone would be able to teach euro civ and an asian history survey with any degree of competence.
    • I would imagine they might be interested in someone who does, say, French imperialism in Southeast Asia, or German colonial involvement in China (just to give two hypothetical examples).  Presumably such scholars would have a minor field in Asian history and could teach a general survey.  Whether they would be interested in someone who works on British or Russian involvement in Central Asia is anybody's guess.
    • If you look at the department website, rather small department, it looks as if each of the faculty members teaches a course outside of their "specialty." I think maybe they are looking for someone who can teach an Asian survey course even though their own research does not focus on Asia. So it seems anything Modern Europe would suffice as long as we are willing to teach the Asian survey. 
  • Any news?
  • Phone invitation for AHA interview (12/9) (x2)
  • Congrats!  Woud you mind sharing your field?
  • Campus visit scheduled (1/9)
  • Offer made/accepted (1/24)

      • No, it means they're interviewing the lowest level candidates first on the phone, then they'll go up the level to skype interviews for the better qualified. Then they'll skip the aha, invite the narrower pool for campus talks, and the three of us will think we're competing against each other, but after seeing our awesomeness they'll choose instead to open up two additional lines to make space for each of us. Then they'll notify the other candidates that this year they had an unusually strong group of qualified applicants and they unfortunately couldn't make space for all of them, but wish them the best of luck in their most-certainly awesome careers.

  • For full consideration: 4 Nov. 2013
  • Updates Anyone? [13 Sept]
    • The search committee is reviewing applications now and planning on conducting Skype interviews in December.
    • [20 Nov] job re-posted on the Chronicle on 20th Nov. [NOTE: separate job, now posted below, 23 Nov. ]
    • It looks like it's actually a different job? There's a separate listing on the university's HR site. The earlier deadline is for an appointment at the Hattiesburg campus and the January deadline for the Gulf Park campus.
    • Note from the History Department at USM: The above Chronicle posting is indeed for a second position in modern European history at our Gulf Park campus. These are two separate searches for two separate positions. Review of applications for the Modern Europe job in Hattiesburg is ongoing.
    • ^^Thanks for clarifying; created a separate heading for Gulf Park job immediately below.
  • [30 Nov]: Nicely-worded rejection email, including invitation to apply for Gulf Park campus job. [x3]
    • "I know that this must come as a shock and disappointment." 
    • So thoughtful to send this out over Thanksgiving weekend...The one time it would have actually been nice for the search committee to wait to send the rejections. [X2]
    • [7 Dec] I received the email stating that applications were being reviewed, and have not heard anything since - so I did not get the rejection email sent last week. Is that a sign I may have made it past an initial cut? Or just that my application has fallen between the cracks?
      • I think it's a sign that like me, you spend too much time reading tea leaves.
  • Skype interview scheduled [12/8]
  • Any news?
  • Offer made and accepted
  • As a postscript: I interviewed with these people at the AHA a few years back, and they NEVER responded to break the bad news. They are always running searches because they hire people, alienate them, and they leave. Very toxic people. Wait a few years, and these job will be advertised again. Very toxic environment.

University of Southern Mississippi - Gulf ParkEdit

  • 9-month tenure track assistant professorship in Modern European History, to begin Fall 2014
  • Teaching Load: 3/3 in "world and European history surveys, upper-level and graduate courses in field of expertise, and directing theses and dissertations in a doctorate-granting department."

  • LINK to Apply
  • For full consideration: 13 Jan., 2014
  • Any news?
  • Received a phone call from the search chair with an invitation for an [Skype] interview next week. [1/30] x3
  • Campus invites anticipated to be announced 24-28 February.
  • Any word about campus invites? 2/25.
  • None here. 2/27.
  • Sooooo. . .has anyone heard anything, directly or indirectly?
  • Not the best sign for those of us interviewed who have heard nothing yet. Me thinks campus invites went out. I hope I'm wrong!
  • I hope so too! The main campus in Hattiesburg made offers last week for its two tenure-track searches; perhaps that took precedence over determining invites for campus visits for the Gulf Park position? (I know, I know, grasping at straws. . .)
  • Those who made the cut for campus visits were notified early last week. 03/09
  • In that case, I think the decent thing to do would have been for the search committee to have immediately notified the other interviewed candidates. The job market is already an inhumane, demoralizing experience; making candidates twist in the wind unnecessarily just seems cruel. The SC were extremely nice people and I wish them and the lucky candidates well, but it doesn't seem like asking for very much to be notified that one is no longer in the running.

I can't see how either could be construed as offensive. Why are posts getting deleted from the wiki anyway? (This happened, for example, below for the UMich-Dearborn position).
    • Perhaps the lucky candidate deleted it himself to protect his identity.
      • [10 Feb] sometimes small edits get removed by accident when a major problem is being rectified (e.g. using the rollback/revert function). I can't quite find where the comment was lost, but I'd opt for 'accident' rather than 'malevolence' for 99% of edit errors! AFII (talk) 08:55, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

Wilkes University (PA)Edit

  • Tenure track assistant professor in Modern European History
  • PhD (in History) must be in hand by Aug. 2014
  • Teaching load 4/4: one or two courses in his or her expertise, as well as two or three world history survey courses. The candidate should also have a minor field outside of Modern Europe (other than U.S.. history) and be prepared to teach courses in that field.
  • Based in the Division of Global History & Languages. This new division was created this year to coordinate and expand the teaching of history and languages at Wilkes University and further Wilkes’ commitment to globalization.
  • To apply, visit http://www.wilkes.edu and click “Jobs at Wilkes”. Please be sure to include a cover letter, resume or curriculum vitae and contact information for three references.
  • Review begins: 15 Dec. 2013  and will continue until the position is filled.
  • Hey guys, could I just ask for some opinions here? It's clear that a 4/4, possibly with 4 preps, is more than a full time job, especially for a new professor. Do they REALLY expect significant research (another 5-10 hours a week) and department service (another 5-10 hours?) I ask this question based on the more comprehensive h-net listing. We're talking upwards of a 60 hour week, possibly more once you add on office hours, student advising, and talk attendence/prep, not to mention all the other stuff like informal dinners with potential tenure referees and so on. When you take a job like this, what part gives? What is the reality of taking a job like this?
    • If it's four preps, that's brutal. No matter what, my impression is that its the research that gives way. check the department; who's doing serius research. This is, I'm guessing, not a job you'll write your way out of. Doesn't mean you can't enjoy it, just that if youre aiming for R1, it will be a long slog out of this place. (x2)
    • Based on the wording of the ad, I see no reason to suspect that four preps in a semester would be likely.  It sounds like the successful candidate would typically have two or at most three preps in a semester, which is fairly standard for a teaching institution.  That's what I'm doing currently (with a 5/5 load).
    • 4/4 with three preps is manageable, although during the first year (when those preps are also all new preps), you do have a full plate.  But research/writing is generally done during the summer months and winter break and not during the school year.  I published a book and four articles before I came up for tenure in a position like that, but it was all done during the four months/year when classes aren't in session.
      • Thought I would share that this position (4/4) will require 2 preps per semester for junior faculty (one prep later), and classes are capped at 18 to 35 (depending on whether it is lower, upper, or seminar).
    • Any news?  I know it seems early given the deadline, but it seems like a lot of the searches with 12/1 deadlines are moving fast.
      • That may be, but this search has a deadline of 12/15.--- in fact that is not even a firm deadline. The application says that the won't even *begin* reviewing applications until December 15th.
    • Email inviting informal discussion about the position at the AHA.
    • Email invitation for phone interview (1/17)
    • I've heard that they will be doing phone interviews in separate phases by two reviewing groups. Has anyone else received an invitation, and possibly on a different date?
    • I was actually informed that phone interviews would be taking place until the middle of this current week.  I didn't hear anything about the separate phases, but then, I didn't ask. (31 Jan.)
    • Most ridiculous email I have ever received in an application cycle.  Announced that some people had received interviews by phone and would be invited to campus. Usual platitudes about strong candidates, but then also maintained that people emailed but not interviewed so far are still open to further consideration. Ugh. Bet-Hedging at its most obnoxious. (2/1)
    • I actually really appreciate that they've been keeping applicants up to date on things throughout the process. It gives me the impression that they've got their stuff together.  Can't think of a single other institution I've applied to that has taken the time.  X2
    • Agreed - the complaint most people make on this page is that an institution keeps them outside the loop of what is going on. Wilkes have done a decent job of at least keeping applicants up to date with their search process. Complaining that they have said that non-interviewed candidates could still be considered (which we all understand is highly unlikely) seems petty.
    • Anyone get an invite?
    • Did campus invites go out?
    • Campus visits scheduled (5 Feb.)

Search on posting number 0612724 and electronically attach a cover letter describing research and teaching interests and experience, and curriculum vitae. Applicants should also submit the names of three references and ask them to send letters directly to: Hist-Jobs@virginia.edu"
  • Review begins: 1 Nov. 2013 and position is open until filled
    • Plan to hold preliminary interviews by phone/Skype in December 
  • This is mostly an impression--so I hope this is an appropriate forum to post this--but it seems as though this departments has been making one of two types of hire the last 5-10 years: EITHER brand new Ph.D.s, OR senior historians head-hunted from elsewhere.  I.e. if you're an adjunct or postdoc or (V)AP somewhere else, the odds aren't in your favor.    Does anyone else know anything about the department?  Does anyone else have this impression?  (Or can anyone else contradict it?)
    • That doesn't fit with what I've seen of the people we've invited for interviews - we tend to get a fairly good career spread.
  • The above commdent (the "impression" about this department favoring freshly minted PhDs or head-hunting other top schools) is very interesting.  I hadn't thought about it, but I am reasonably acquainted with the department and its practices the last few years, and I'd have to say there's something to it--with a qualification.  If it's a straight-forward hiring within the department, yes--the above comment rings true.  But if the the hiree is in some way cross-listed with another department or program (history and law, history and religion, history and East Asian studies), then it does seem to be a pretty open search.  I don't know if this has to do with funding or what. 
  • There's some possibly relevant chatter (alarming? alarmist? I don't know) about the department, the university, etc. further up, under the posting for the Byzantine search.  It deals with the ins and outs and ups and downs of an unsuccessful search last year.
  • (And could we adopt the practice of placing the date after a posting?)  [9/27] <- great idea - as there's an international readership the format [9 Sept] might help avoid confusion as we get into the new year (to me, 10/2 is the 10th Feb!) AFII (talk) 07:43, October 7, 2013 (UTC)
  • Worth noting, the search referenced elsewhere was an interdisciplinary search, not that comparable to this one, which is strictly run by history. The 2 history dept. searches last year were quite successful. [10/2]
  • Any ideas about the teaching load for this position? [10/23.
    • Presumably 2/2. That's standard in UVA history dept. 
  • I applied for this job (didn't get it) in 2008, and I understood it filled.  Does anyone know what happened (as in facts, not rumors) in between?  Just wondering.
    • The professor who got it left after about a year owing to a spousal hire situation where he was offered a job elsewhere. There have been adjuncts, but no permanent replacement since 2009.
  • No word yet?  (12/6)
  • Request for writing sample by email (Dec. 7) x3
    • Requesting some clarification.  Did the request for a writing sample come with any other information about the search process and its timeline, such as when the skype interviews would be scheduled?  Did you both receive the request on Dec 7th (because if I remember right, the "x2" came 1-2 days later)? 
    • I wasn't one of the original two, above, but I also received a writing sample request via email on Dec. 7th. The email didn't offer any further information about the progress of the search or the timeline for interviews.
    • Request for Skype interview (Dec. 15) x3
  • Rejection by e-mail (Dec. 18).  120+ applications for the position. x 2
  • Request for dissertation/book manuscript by e-mail, after Skype interview. (Dec. 20)-
  • That's interesting. I had an interview, but no subsequent request for materials. I wonder what that means.
  • Campus interviews scheduled (1/27). Last one is 2/19.
  • Initial offer made week of 3/5.
  • Accepted, surely?  Yes.
  • As of May 7, 2014, they are STILL advertising this position. For God sakes, pay attention and take down the ad! 

University of Winchester (UK) - Late MedievalEdit

  • Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (tenured ~Asst/Assoc or Assoc/Full Prof) in Late Medieval English History, aim will be for a start date in 2013 (or so the reference to the REF implies)
  • "Working within the Department of History, you will teach political and social history principally of Late Medieval England 1300-1500 in the tradition of K.B. McFarlane within the University’s current BA and MA programmes. Expertise in the records of national government, especially the inquisitions post mortem, is essential. Contributions will be made to the administration of the Department and its programmes. Preference may be given to candidates with particular expertise in the Wars of the Roses or the Hundred Years War. The post does require some evening teaching."
  • "As our ideal candidate, you will have a doctorate and have excellent publications actual or forthcoming to qualify for entry to the Research Excellence Framework 2014. You will have experience of teaching in higher education. The capacity to teach other aspects of medieval History English or European would be advantageous as is an interest in historical pedagogy. The ability to contribute to historical methodology teaching on both BA and MA programmes is essential as are excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively"
  • Deadline: 11 Aug. 2013
  • Intend to interview 23 Aug.
  • Dr James Ross (hired as Senior Lecturer), PhD Oxford (2003)

Wake Forest University (NC) - early modernEdit

  • Tenure track assistant professorship in Early Modern British History, to begin July 2014
  • PhD must be in hand by July 2014
  • "The teaching of the first half of a two-semester upper-level survey of British history, and an introductory-level World Civilizations course is required"
  • Deadline: 1 Nov. 2013
    • Intend to interview at the AHA
  • They ran this search two years ago and the person they hired has left already.  Also, see the Universities to Fear page for more on how that search went.
    • "Words cannot capture how poorly this place is run." seems to be the name of the game...
    • There are a lot of weird things going on here.  First off, however, their most recent (presumably intended to be long-term) hiree died of cancer.  So you can't really blame anyone for that.  That said, yes, this place seems to be horribly run.  I think they've advertised for this position at least 5 out of the last 10 years.  For a few years it was "1500 and 1600s" OR "1800s"--which is weird: what about the 1700s?  It really sounds like a divided dsearch committee.  Years ago I had an AHA interview.  It was perfect and (naively, I'll admit) I assumed a campus visit was in the works.  Never heard a word from them again.  The next year I had an AHA interview, a campus interview, and then heard not a word until June ("We are sorry, but the search has been unsuccessful again...".)  The husband of a friend has also had similarly bizarre experiences with another department, so these problems really do seem to be at the institutional level.
    • This is not quite accurate. The asst. prof. who died was replaced in the 2010-11 search (the same search detailed on the Universities to Fear page). The candidate who replaced him (i.e., the most recent, presumably intended to be long-term, hire) left last year. As a now-deleted comment on the Universities to Fear page also pointed out, three early-career faculty members, all women, have left the department in as many years.
    • The previous holder of this position is now employed, according to multiple website giving her affiliation for this year, at SUNY Binghamton, which advertised last year for a historian of the British Empire.
    • She went from Wake Forest to Binghamton? ... Either there's family nearby, or SUNY Binghamton is better than Wake Forest. Which from what I've heard of the SUNY system is not saying much for Wake Forest.
    • "Better" can mean a great many different things depending on individual circumstances. Without more information I wouldn't necessarily read anything into the faculty member's decision (I don't work at either school nor do I know the person concerned, BTW).
    • I also don't know anyone involved, but Binghamton has a Ph.D. program and Wake Forest appears to be undergraduate only for history.
    • any word on this? (11/18)
      • I received a polite email alerting me that one of my faculty had not submitted his letter around 11/15, so they must have started reviewing last week. Nothing since then (11/21).
      • No word (11/27). It's frustrating when search committees take so long to get back to applicants re: interviews for the AHA. I keep seeing tickets go up but have no plans to travel unless an interview is secured.
      • diito (11/27). They must be compiling a short list, with no intermediary stage of asking for more work or holding phone interviews. I'd imagine we'll hear next week.
      • AHA request (11/27) x3. <--- Was this today? Phone or email? Thanks for sharing! 
      • AHA request was 11/26. Also request for addtnl materials. 
      • After an AHA interview, a letter within the week informing me that I will not be invited to campus. Very thoughtful to let people know so quickly.
      • Campus visit scheduled (1/9)

Washington and Lee University (VA) - British History c.1500-1850Edit

  • Tenure track assistant professor of British History, c.1500-1850, to begin Sept. 2014
  • "The area of specialization is open, but the successful candidate must be prepared to teach a section of our introductory European Civilization survey, a two-term sequence on British history from the Middle Ages to the present, and courses in their area of expertise."
  • PhD must be in hand by Jun. 2014
  • NB: this is a readvertisement (see last year's advert) "applicants from last year’s search are encouraged to reapply."
  • Review begins: 1 Nov. 2013
  • Search apparently failed quite spectacularly last year. Apply at your own risk, folks. Not a pretty scene.
  • Can you provide any further details or information as to what happened (sparing the names of the innocent, of course)?
    • [7 Jul.] Just a reminder: if this is a systematic problem with a University or Department (etc.) rather than something specific to this particular search committee, then it might be better placed on the Universities to fear page, where more people might see it. AFII (talk) 07:59, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
    • Ya, but job-specific issues are always placed below the posting. So, if someone knows ...
    • There's nothing in the chat on the posting from last year, so it's difficult to say. If there's something specific about this post that would be relevant to those applying, could someone please inform the rest of us, so we can make the right decision? I don't think departments realize that while there are those who will apply anywhere, there are also those who will walk away from the profession rather than applying at a place that has a history of problems.... so ethical conduct here is disclosure.
    • Agreed.  A major reason these wikis have been created is to put a tiny bit of power in the hands of the applicants and to hold some of these places accountable for their actions during job searches.  Knowledge is power!
    • [Sept. 17] - The committee's first choice accepted another position last year. 
  • Has anyone applied (other than me)?  Anyone heard anything?  [Dec. 3rd]
  • Loads of people have. It's like we're all sitting by the phone, waiting for it to ring, and now we're starting to wonder if the phone is broken. :) 12/3
  • email invitation for AHA interview  (12/6) x3
  • rejection by email (12/10) x4
    • The email had a standard, even nice message.  However, the subject line was "AHA Interview with Washington and Lee," which raised my hopes before the body of the email dashed them.  Why not "Washington and Lee British History Position: Application Not Advanced" or something similar?  
    • Could the subject line be anymore misleading!?  I even let out a cheer of excitement before realizing I was being crushed.  
    • Oh, guys. I'm sorry. I was pleased with the nice message. Makes me feel like there's a bit of humanity out there. I hope you have better luck soon.
    • Thanks for posting this. I read it before I checked my email. Had I not, I'm fairly sure my laptop would have been thrown at the wall.
    • If it's any help, I replied to the woman who sent the email and she mailed me back. I just wanted to convey to you all what she said to me, that it was truly an honest mistake and she feels quite badly. She seems very nice! (x2)
  • Heard via e-mail that I'm not being invited to campus.  Best of luck to those who are.  (1/11)
  • Campus invitation scheduled. (1/10)
  • Offer accepted.

FrenchEdit

Baylor University (TX)  - with World HistoryEdit

  • Assistant Professorship in History
  • The Department of History seeks a specialist in French History to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in this area. Applicants should be ABD or hold a Ph.D. in History of Early Modern France, Modern France, or Francophone World-French Colonies/Atlantic World and should be able to show evidence of outstanding teaching along with potential for scholarly publication.
  • "The successful candidate will be expected to offer undergraduate survey courses in World History as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in areas of specialization"
    •  Teaching load is 2-2.
  • Link to Apply: http://apply.interfolio.com/22347 "Please submit a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, and transcripts. Include names, addresses, and phone numbers of three individuals from whom you have requested letters of recommendation"
  • Review begins 1 Oct. with hard deadline 1 Dec. 2013
  • NOTE: "Chartered in 1845 by the Republic of Texas, Baylor University is the oldest university in Texas and the world’s largest Baptist University. Baylor’s mission is to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community."
    • Additional note: Faculty do not have to be Baptist, though they should be able to support and contribute to the University's religious commitments. Jews, Catholics, and just about every variety of Protestant are currently employed by the university. Baylor split from the Southern Baptists in 1990 in order to prevent fundamentalist influence over university curriculum or policies.
    • I have heard they require affiliation with some form of religious institution, whether or not it is Baptist. Is this true?
      • No one is taking church attendance, but it's expected and assumed that you'll be a regular member of some faith community. I'm not sure if there's a formal university requirement. If your beliefs are purely secular and you never set foot in church/synagogue, then you simply aren't a good fit for the job (and wouldn't be happy at Baylor anyway). The administration isn't too nosey about personal faith and is entirely hands off about what you do in the classroom. However, as a religious institution, Baylor can (and will) legally ask you about your general religious background and how you see yourself fitting with the University's mission.
  • Intend to interview at the AHA
  • Request for comment on Baylor's Christian mission statement to determine interviewees.
  • Anyone heard anything beyond the mission statement request? —Nope. News must be coming any day now, at least for those selected (12/9).
  • Post-Mission Statement, Rejection (12/10).
  • Request for AHA Interview (12/10)

University of Michigan - Dearborn - ModernEdit

  • Full time faculty position in Modern German History
  • Preferred candidates should have a research specialization that would allow them to teach upper-division courses in modern German, intellectual and cultural, and modern European history and be capable of teaching the introductory survey of Modern World Civilization (HIST 103). The ideal candidate should also be able to contribute to College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters programs such as the Honors Program's Western Culture sequence, and perhaps, the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, and/or the Voice/Vision Holocaust Oral History Project. Comparative research or work situating the primary subject in a regional or global perspective is preferred. Experience and interest in high quality, on-line teaching is a plus.
  • Applicants should send a cover letter, vita, graduate transcript, three letters of reference, a summary of teaching evaluations (if available), and a writing sample. Electronic applications are preferred: please send via email to Chair, History Search Committee at GermanHistorySearch@umich.edu. Documents that must be mailed should be sent to: Professor Joe Lunn, Chair, History Search Committee, University of Michigan Dearborn, 4901 Evergreen Rd., Dearborn MI 48128. We will interview at the AHA meeting in Washington, D.C.
  • For full consideration: 1 Dec. 2013
  • That's odd.  I could have sworn I saw a post here a few days ago indicating that UM-D had contacted people for interviews.  Is my mind playing tricks on me, or did somebody delete the entry?
  • Yes, someone deleted the entry.  Can we get a reason why or is there a wiki-imp playing tricks?
  • I saw the post too. It was the same day [12/12] that I got an email from the department saying that they are starting to look at applications now. I checked back with wiki and the post was gone.
  • NOTE [12/14]: this is the post that someone deleted on Dec. 13 (the person who deleted does not appear to be one of the 2 original posters): "*Received call to schedule AHA interview (12/9) (x2)"
  • Thank god, I thought I was nuts.  I saw that post about AHA too, got very disheartened, but then the next day I got an email asking me to fill out the HR information.  So, do we think that poster just made a mistake?  I've not heard anything beyond the request for HR info, so perhaps they're still reviewing material?  Any new news from anyone?
  • 12/15: Hard to tell whether the deletion was malicious or accidental. Since two separate people posted about scheduling AHA interviews on the same day, I would assume that information is valid. I would not assume that the request for HR info. has much if anything to do with where they are in the reviewing / interviewing process; such requests can often be quite disconnected from what the committee is actually doing. 
  • 12/16: Adding to the excitement: I got an e-letter today stating, "Our committee will begin reviewing applications in the next few weeks." All together it's really funny: two slated for the AHA, two told the committee's "starting to look at applications now" (above), and another told the search will start in a couple weeks--each at different times. I'll email the posts to Dearborn once the search is finished. They'll have a good laugh.
  • Rejection email (12/20) (x2---I've heard there is no point applying to this position if you are not a Geoff Eley student.)
  • Any information post-AHA interviews? [01/15]
  • Nothing yet
  • Haven't heard anything personally, but based on the timeline they gave me during the interview, I'm pretty sure they have selected the final three.

Central European University (Hungary) - Modern Russian & SovietEdit

  • Assistant professorship in Modern Russian or Soviet History
  • "This position will continue one of the main research and teaching foci of the Department. We encourage applications from candidates whose training and expertise is in Soviet and Post-Soviet history in general.  In keeping with the Departments emphasis on interdisciplinary to comparative and cross-cultural studies, we invite applicants with a strong interest in comparative study of Empire and in various combinations of social, political, gender, or cultural history. Applicants should hold a PhD degree"
  • "Applications should include: a C.V.; a list of publications; a sample publication; a letter of application including a short statement about the applicants research plans; and the names and addresses of at least three referees." Please submit your complete application package to positions@ceu.hu including job code in subject line: 2013/036
  • Deadline: 10 Nov. 2013
  • BEWARE: CEU is an extremely problematic institution that engages in employment practices described in an AAUP investigation last year as "seriously deficient." These include nonrenewals of contracts based on shaky "collegiality" grounds, which AAUP standards explicitly prohibit. Last year a faculty member in international relations who taught for a semester in this department brought successful legal action against CEU in a US jurisdiction for breach of contract, personal and professional harassment, and gender and religious discrimination. She received a large financial settlement and got a job at a more prestigious institution, but after witnessing the case it is hard to imagine that anyone seriously interested in a scholarly career would even consider CEU.

  • I know that someone on the committee was contacting leading professors in these fields with graduate students and encouraging them to apply. The inside story I heard was much as the ad said--they would prefer to hire at the full or associate rank, but would consider particuarly strong junior candidates. However, this was a while ago, and so for all I know they have already arranged initial interviews or campus visits.
  • I would have guessed that they'd go straight to campus visits, but I guess no one on the wiki is among those invited, b/c it does seem like by now we would have heard.
  • My friend (an actual friend, not talking about myself) was contacted around January 6ish to send them a lot of additional materials. This person is not a new PhD. Don't know anything else, so unfortunately that's all I can add. (1/18)
