- AHA interview requested Nov. 29 (x2)
- Has anyone interviewed at the AHA heard back yet? It seemed from the interview that the committee wanted to move on to the campus visit stage pretty fast
- [Jan 18] Campus interview request for early Feb.
- Offer made and accepted.
- Tenure-track assistant professor of late antique or medieval history.
- Our search encompasses all fields and areas of medieval European, Mediterranean, and/or Near Eastern history, ca. 200–1400 CE.
- Preferred qualifications: ability to teach a range of undergraduate lectures and seminars in late antique and/or medieval history; research and teaching interests that relate and can contribute to one or more of our graduate program thematic clusters (Global connections, empire, capitalism; Health, science, environment; Race, citizenship, migration; Religion, gender, cultural identity; States, nations, political cultures).

- Apply at Academic Jobs Online
- Inquiries may be directed to Sara Lipton: email@example.com.
- For full consideration: 1 Dec. 2017
- first-round Skype interviews planned for January 2018, and campus visits in February 2018.
- Does this mean invitations have been sent out?
- No. The info you see above is posted in the actual job ad; nothing new or special about it. They likely won’t contact for interviews until after the AHA.
- The are doing Skype interviews; why would they wait for the AHA to send out invitations?
- I was just using the AHA as a shorthand. Let me rephrase: they likely will wait until the early week or so of January to send out Skype requests. I wouldn’t expect anything this close to Christmas; most Depts have scattered to the winds and I don’t imagine any SCs convening again until about a week or so prior to Spring classes.
- [8 Jan] Any word about movement with this one yet?
- [9 Jan] Just spoke with the admin person handling this (not anyone on the SC). The list of candidates who will be asked to interview via Skype is complete, but they have to wait for the Dean to ‘ok’ it before anyone can be contacted. This is standard procedure. They expect to send out emails in 2-3 weeks.
- [9 Jan] Email from Search Chair (Sara Lipton), stating that in 1-2 weeks they will officially notify 15 semi-finalists to interview via Skype; then 3 from those for campus visits. I am not sure if this was sent to all applicants or only to those whom they desire to interview, yet cannot officially notify without the approval of the Dean (as noted above). The Dept. Chair was CC'd in email, so I doubt that this email went to all 100-200 applicants, but can I get any confirmation? Did anyone else receive this email?
- [11 January] This is not an accurate account of that email. What the email I received on Tuesday, 9 January said was, "In the next week, we expect to contact fifteen semi-finalists for Skype interviews, hopefully to take place next week. We will then select three finalists to invite for on-campus interviews in February." So, unless they don't meet that timetable, they should be contacting people to arrange for Skype interviews today or tomorrow, not in 1-2 weeks.
- Since the email was sent this Tuesday, "in the next week" cannot possibly mean "today or tomorrow" (i.e. Thursday or Friday this week), but the week starting on Jan. 15. On the other hand, the email itself is confusing, as it is not clear to me how they can both invite and hold interviews with 15 candidates next week, unless "hopefully to take place next week" actually means that interviews will be scheduled the week after (Jan. 22-26).
- If you are all this bad at textual analysis then I should be a shoo-in for this job.
- We just want to lull you into a false sense of security.
- [9 Jan] same email from search chair received x4; "Dear Applicant" means they sent to everyone, in my opinion.
- Did anyone NOT receive the email?
- And, do all who did receive it also have the Dept Head CC’d?
- I got the CC from Dept Head on my email. (x4)
- [11 Jan] Very nicely worded invitation for Skype interview to be held in 2 weeks (week of Jan. 22).
- This is clearly either A) someone who misread the 9 Jan email, thinking it was an invite or B) someone deliberately posting incorrect information.
- Probably B)
- [12 Jan] Everyone, the snark and speculation about others' motives are out of line. This is understandably the frayed-nerves portion of the job search season, but try to keep it in check, please.
- [15 Jan] Confirmed that invitations for Skype interviews went out on the 11th of January, and are scheduled for Jan. 22-24.
- [16 Jan] I just wiped out the comments that followed this. If you have a complaint about this search and the way it was handled, post to the Universities to Fear page. If you want to discuss it with other people, post to TALK page or to another forum.Goldenwest (talk) 16:28, January 16, 2018 (UTC)

- Yes, it is.
- I did receive the same notification as the previous poster, also on Dec. 4
- They haven't told me anything yet either. I don't understand why they would tell only some candidates that the search was suspended. Very strange.
- It was kind of a generic e-mail. Is it possible that it was filtered to your spam folder by accident?

- [17 Nov] Still nothing x 1
- [21 Nov] Invited for Skype interview x 1
- [11 Dec] Generic rejection received
- [18 Dec] Did anyone else get a weird vibe from the Skype interview?
- I wouldn't say it was a weird vibe exactly, but it did appear as if some of the committee members were bored or distracted.
- OP here: Maybe "weird" was the wrong word. "Uncomfortable"? I got the feeling that either the SC members didn't like each other very much, or they were not interested/invested in the interview, or both.
- [deleted what appeared to be a real name; please bear in mind the T&C about personal data].
- I did not have that experience at all.
- ^ The names of search committee members are listed all over this website. Why would you choose to enforce this now? #methree.
- MeToo experience with search committee member.
- It seems some of the students, judging from rate my professor comments, have had similar experiences.
Based on the faculty profiles it seems likely they have an internal candidates-perhaps that was the reason for the lack of interest in the interview?
- ^^For what it's worth, their religion department also had an inside candidate this year and they didn't hire her. [19 Jan]
- Any word on the on-campus stage? They said they would be in touch in early January so I assume the search has moved on? Thanks!
- They have started scheduling interviews
- Appreciate the update!
- Might be worth noting that a couple faculty members were Kalamazoo alums - that might be a preference you're up against.
- Interview scheduled, not a KU alum, no #metoo interview experience [16 Jan]
- That's great. Hope it doesn't happen to you. Just be careful with JB.
- Good luck! And yes, do be careful around JB (though he's more respectful to other men, so you might not have any problems), and do make sure you know that it's a college and not a university.

- Oct 1 Request for additional writing
- Oct 21 Skype interviews were this past week
- Re: Skype interviews - How can this be? They asked for teaching-related materials on the 12th and conducted Skype interviews only a few days after? Any info would be appreciated.
- Strange as it may seem, that is what they did. I was one of those interviewed. The interview invitation came very shortly after I submitted the teaching materials they asked for -- so shortly that they could not have taken more than a cursory look at the materials before the interview was scheduled. Perhaps they only asked for teaching materials from people they had already decided to interview, and wanted the materials on hand for the interview, but who knows? Don't try to make sense of academic job searches or you'll lose your mind. At any rate, the interview was a few weeks ago, and no word since then. Given how quickly they moved at the outset of the search (additional writing request came two weeks after the deadline, and the interviews happened about two weeks after that) I suspect they've made campus invites by now.
- Nov 5 I've heard that interviews have been conducted and campus visits booked.

- I happened upon the very similar search they had last year (with an almost identical deadline), and it seems they didn't send out invitations for Skype interviews until November 11th last year. I would have guessed that they had already selected candidates this year, but maybe just maybe invites have not gone out yet.
- [20 Dec] Any update on this search? I can't imagine they haven't contacted some candidates yet

- Review begins: 1 Oct. 2017.
- This online app system is a NIGHTMARE! (agreed!)
- The job announcement says that they want three letters of recommendation, but has anyone figured out exactly how these are supposed to be submitted? I don't see a way to get the application to send links to referees to upload letters.

- Letters could be emailed to the committee chair.
- I had Interfolio send letters to the committee chair, but honestly, this search smells fishy. They happen to have an instructor-ranked Ph.D. on staff with a recent book on Britain and the Atlantic world, who also happens to coordinate the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies... (feel free to delete if this is inappropriate commentary) --> I'm ok with knowing this context. Plus, deadline's already passed, so... we'll see! [posted 10/3]
- For those interested, you can look back at the Wiki to the 2013-2014 cycle and see that they ran a permanent instructor position 4/4 (with security of employment or as they call it, "tenure-track" or "3/4 load faculty") with a preference for field of study in modern Europe. Not sure what happened with that (whether they hired, if that person left, etc.; I'm not going to look through the faculty lists), but in case this information is useful.
