Campus interview scheduled: (I emailed today and was notified that campus visits have been scheduled. This seems like a partner hire or something...) 1/28

I do not believe this is a partner hire. I am pretty sure they skipped assistant level altogether and went for a tenured search. It appears that the cadidates are Kathleen McHugh and Michelle Bigenho, and possibly John Durham Peters. There is some talk about restructuring, and that might be looking for a chair. From these names, it looks to be the case. The lack of any assistant-level campus talk is disconcerting considering the fact that the job call was neither open rank nor asst/associate, but specifically assistant. These talks were just scheduled: http://www.indiana.edu/~cmcl/events.shtml

  • I'm pretty sure none of these are candidates, but part of the department's regular lecture series. Note that John Durham Peters had been scheduled for the fall, but it was canceled. Also note that none of the job talks for the rhetoric search they also did this year (which has been completed) are listed on that page. And one of those people is an anthropologist, not a media scholar.
  • It is not an internal hire and none of those three people are the candidates.

NOTES:

Did anyone else get neither a rejection nor a request? Yes (x4).

Q: Did all those who received a request for additional material receive the email on 11/20, or are these requests being staggered? Thanks.

A: I was #3 reporting a request for additional materials, and I got the e-mail on 11/20.

A: I was #7 and I also got the email on 11/20.

A: I just received an email requesting more materials today (12/3)

Got an email rejection.

Q: Anyone got experience with how these rolling sorts of searches work? Why would a committee do two separate sets of requests for more information? Is there a standard procedure - or are they just requesting materials from any candidate who interests them at any point? 

A: In this case, I was told that my name had been inadvertently left off of the original request for more materials. (x2)

Q: Did any of those who were requested additional material, but have not been invited for an interview recieve rejection emails? 

A: Yes, I was asked for more materials and have not yet received any further communication. I assume they're waiting until they've finalized all the MLA interview slots before notifying the rest of the pool. Alas. (x1)  12/15 

Thanks! 

Q: Has anyone else who had an MLA interview heard back from St. Olaf one way or the other?  Nope. Q: Someone answered previously that she or he had a colleague with a campus visit but has now erased that answer. Could you please clarify? Thanks. A: I also had an MLA interview and was invited for a campus visit (just added my x2 above).

Received a call (on 2/26) asking if I had taken a position somewhere else. I was not one of the people invited to campus after MLA interviews.  **Wow.  Was this an error on the part of the school or are they really going back and looking at previous interviewees?**

Any movement here beyond above?

I just got about 30 rejection emails. I don't think I got the job, gang. Womp womp. (4/1)

Maybe one of those rejections was meant for me? I was among those asked for more materials, but since then no communication of any kind. Is the courtesy of a rejection (just one will do) too much to ask? Though I do take some dark comfort in the apparent disarray of this search. (4/4)

Call it sour grapes on my part, but this search was handled poorly all around.  I got around 30 rejection e-mails all at once from this school, too.  And all you have to do is read the thread of things that happened during this search to see others of the multiple mistakes made along the way. (4/5)

The search has been closed (i.e. "failed"). It seems that the English faculty and the Film Studies faculty could not agree on anyone who could satisfy both of their respective (and, frankly, conflicting) desires for the hire. I agree that it was not handled well. Personally, I've found it to be the most frustrating experience I've had on the market.

Thanks for the information! St. Olaf, if you're listening -- please resolve your internal conflicts before you post the job again. It's disrespectful to applicants to do otherwise. Yes, the market is bad enough that most of us will apply again despite the way you handled things this year. But in a small way this kind of bungling contributes to the inhumane conditions of the market. You should be better than that. (4/7)

Stanford University - Documentary Film and Video Production (Open Rank)Edit

The Program in Film and Media Studies in the Department of Art & Art History at Stanford University is seeking candidates for an open-rank position with an emphasis in the field of Documentary Film and Video Production. The appointment is expected to begin September 1, 2013.

Situated in the Department of Art and Art History as part of Stanford's program in Film and Media Studies, the Master of Fine Arts Program in Documentary Film and Video provides a historical, theoretical, and critical framework within which students master the conceptual and practical skills for producing nonfiction film and video. In their own filmmaking, faculty are encouraged to seek out synergies that may exist among colleagues within the department and across the university.

The MFA degree prepares students for professional careers in film, video, and digital media and for teaching at the university level. The philosophy of the program is predicated on a paradigm of independent media that values artistic expression, formal exploration, social awareness, and a defined vision. A dual emphasis on production and theory classes prepares the student to undertake an academic position that may require the teaching of both film studies and media production.

The successful candidate will teach at the graduate level in the MFA Program in Documentary Film and Video and at the undergraduate level in the Film and Media Studies program. Candidates will be expected to teach a range of core courses in both documentary production and documentary studies. The production sequence includes research, conceptualization, producing, directing, cinematography, sound, and editing of nonfiction media. The successful applicant will be expected to develop studies courses that explore the history and theory of documentary. The Program welcomes applicants who are filmmakers with a strong creative portfolio and with teaching experience at both the introductory and advanced levels. A completed MFA or Ph.D. is required.

Please send a letter of application that includes the following: a statement that details your approach to your creative work, a description of your teaching experience and philosophy, a CV, sample work on DVD, and a list of three referees to: Professor Jan Krawitz, Department of Art & Art History, 435 Lasuen Mall, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305-2018.

No news yet? (2/12/13) x3

I heard from a campus contact (not affiliated with either of these departments) that it was an inside hire; they only interviewed one person who was already on campus. I have received no communications from the University. (2/27/13) OK. Wow. Jeez. That's really something. I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that, on paper, this semed a really great gig. Thanks for posting this info (3/1/13).

(3/4) Is it permissible to interview just one candidate for a position that required national announcements?  Seems like most institutions that are planning on an internal hire still invite at least one other candidate to campus.

(3/5) It's not unheard of. Such situations can indicate a department in conflict/to be wary of, but of course, I'm sure there are exceptions.

NOTES:

This position was recently reposted on SCMS for a FULL PROFESSOR. The new posting specifically for FULL is worded exactly the same as the job call here. I am not sure if they are turning this position into a FULL due to the apps they recieved, or if this is so broadly worded they have multiple candidates and have received a second line. My guess is that this is now earmarked for a FULL professor and asst or even associate level is no longer being considered for this position.

They have multiple lines (so the full prof is probably in addition to this posting not instead of it).

Two people hired, one full, one associate (6/6/13)

Oberlin College - Visiting Assistant Professor of Cinema Studies - OFFER MADEEdit

The Cinema Studies Program at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time non-continuing faculty position in the College of Arts and Sciences. Appointment to this position will be for a term of one year, with the possibility of renewal for an additional year, beginning fall 2013, and will carry the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor.

The incumbent will teach a total of five courses in the history and theory of cinema and media, with an emphasis on technological practices in social and cultural context. We would value additional work in Early Cinema and consider as secondary strengths knowledge of non-Western cinemas.

Cinema, modern culture’s primary art form, is central to the media traditions and industries that structure contemporary society, and Oberlin College’s Cinema Studies Program is committed to exploring cinema in its critical, creative, historical, cultural, technological, and comparative media contexts. On the idea that to genuinely understand cinema and other media one must create media forms as well as analyze them, the Program integrates the critical study and production of cinema and related media, and majors may take both hands-on media production as well as critical studies courses. 

As a hub of humanistic study and media literacy in the twenty-first century, Cinema Studies also seeks to embody Oberlin College’s longstanding dedication to learning and service. On the belief that to fully grasp media’s role in structuring social relations and shaping communities one must engage in concrete ways with one’s own community, the Program provides opportunities for its majors to translate their experience with cinema and media into community outreach and service learning through a year-round media literacy outreach program.

For more information about Cinema Studies at Oberlin, please see our web page at  http://new.oberlin.edu/arts-and-sciences/departments/cinema_studies/.

The new appointment’s classes will be integral core courses that help define the major and reflect the Program’s direction. To nurture our strong commitment to exploring cinema within the broader historical, theoretical, and cultural matrix of Media Studies, we seek to hire someone whose work emphasizes comparisons among different media forms, examines cinema and other media in terms of their technological foundations and cultural implications, and studies media in the historical context of the centuries-old, ongoing relationship between technological innovation and artistic practice. Ideally, the incumbent will offer advanced courses on technology and media practices surrounding the birth of cinema, along with introductory courses in cinema and media studies. We would especially value expertise in sound and would welcome knowledge of other pre-cinematic media and technologies. The incumbent will teach two introductory classes (What is Media? and Introduction to the Study of Cinema), and some combination of three intermediate and advanced courses in the historical and/or theoretical relations among media, technology, and culture in his or her area of specialization.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. (in hand or expected by September 2013) and demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable.

To be assured of consideration, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate academic transcripts, and at least three letters of reference* by February 28, 2013, to: Geoff Pingree, Director, Cinema Studies Program, 10 N. Professor St., Oberlin, OH 44074 (fax 440-775-8684). Application materials received after the deadline may be considered until the position is filled. Salary will depend on qualifications and experience. *By providing these letters you agree that we may contact your references.

DISCUSSIONEdit

  • Don't know if anyone's still around, but there are a lot of "Position Filled" and "Offer Accepted" notifications on this page but with no information on who's getting these jobs. I obviously don't want names, but some idea of qualifications, specialties, what programs they're coming out of, if they're ABDs, etc. would give the rest of us a picture of how this whole thing is shaking out. In years past, I noticed this type of info was frequently added once a job was filled. Any hints on any of these filled positions would be much appreciated!

-- Anyone know anything about a position at Hong Kong Baptist University? Not sure if it fits here or in last year's wiki, but the deadline was June 30--

-- Golly, it certainly seems like this would have been a good year to be an Asianist.

-- What happened to the handy "Contents" menu at the top with the list of different positions? The new "Contents" form is okay, but it doesn't allow for quick glances as easily, and when I click on a category like "Tenure Track Positions" I end up having to scroll down through the whole list in order to see basic information. Any way we can go back to the old format?

  • I'm seeing the same old contents list as usual. I think the site might be acting a bit glitchy today. I would recommend possibly clearing your browser cache / reloading the page and seeing what happens. Maybe try a different browser too. Certainly, no administrator has changed the format, so I'm guessing it's something going on with the larger Wikia interface. If the problem persists, I would recommend contacting Wikia: http://academicjobs.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contact/bug  Una74 (talk) 16:45, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
  • UPDATE: I inquired directly with Wikia and confirmed that this problem should not be occuring and that if you are continuing to have problems with it, you should contact them directly at the link provided above. Since I'm not experiencing this particular issue, I can't provide them with the technical data they need to resolve it. So if you want to get it fixed, you need to report it to them! Una74 (talk) 23:08, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm also getting this issue on all jobs pages. Can't report the problem, though, since I'm not a registered user.
    • It's easy and free to create a user log in. Link: http://academicjobs.wikia.com/wiki/Special:UserSignup
    • Another UPDATE: the issue seems to be that users who are not logged into the site cannot see the Contents formatted with Heading 3. I have contacted Wikia about this issue (which seems to have been introduced with today's site update) and am waiting for a reply and hopefully a fix. In the meantime, if you want to see the former "Contents" format, create a user log-in at the link given above, and you should be able to see it. Una74 (talk) 07:21, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
    • I went ahead and reformatted the school/position titles above in H2 so everyone can see them in the TOC because I'm not sure when Wikia is getting around to fixing the bug. If anyone is still having problems viewing the TOC, please let me know. 
    • Great! Thanks so much.
  • TOC bug resolved; headers reformatted (12/5)
  • How did everyone do for MLA?
  • I know the job at Catholic University in DC never made it to this Wiki, but I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything about that position?  Deadline was 1 October, and I've not heard one thing.  Anyone know anything?
    • Skype interviews happened at the end of November.
