  • So they have or haven't invited candidates to campus? (Feb. 2)
  • They have not. It looks like someone maybe posted an update under the wrong school. The search chair made a comment below a few weeks ago explaining how they, for some reason, divided their Skype interviews into 2 separate groups, like a month apart. Does that mean they're interviewing as many as 25-30 people? I really hope not, for everyone's sake. I assume they won't start getting back to people for campus interviews until mid-Feb at the very earliest. So hang in there for just a few more weeks, you already exhausted, beaten, downtrodden, sleep-losing candidates on the academic job market! (Feb. 3)
  • Has anyone heard back from them who applied with Jan 31 deadline?
    • Nothing here [Feb 14]
  • Any updates on campus visits? [Feb 19]
  • Does this mean the initial phone interview for the Jan 31 deadline has already happened? (Feb 24)
    • Yes. I wrote to the chair yesterday, they have invited finalists to campus. [Feb 27]


Search Chair Here (Dec 21):   Applications received by Jan 31, 2019 will be given full consideration.  We are doing a first round of Skype interviews in Jan 2019, and a second round of Skype in Feb 2019 after all applications are received and evaluated.    If you wish to be considered for the position, please submit a complete application.
