NOTES AND QUERIES:

Any thoughts on how this should be submitted? Mail or email?

Q: Anyone know the teaching load on this one? I'm presuming 4/4, but I can't find the info on their website...

A: Definitely a 4/4 with 2 classes of comp. each semester.

A: 4/4 with the possibility of course reductions depending on circumstances (e.g. teaching during Jan. term, supervising students in English Ed)

Q: Anyone heard ANYTHING on this one?

A: (2/1) I emailed Human Resources on Friday, Jan. 27th, and received this message in reply: "I spoke with the committee chair and he has informed me that the short list of candidates are being contacted this week. Those individuals selected should be notified by the close of business today." So I'm assuming those those on the short list have already been contacted and those of us who haven't heard anything are out of the running.

A: I was just contacted today (2/9) via emal about being on the short list. I don't know if everyone else was also conatcted today. They said they got over 400 applications, so they took extra long to make selections.

A: Likewise, contacted via email. Relative to the current market, 400+ apps for two positions seems, I hate to admit, "reasonable." This is my jaded view, folks.

Q: Wait, what does this mean: "Additional documents not required by on-line application like dossiers, letters of recommendation, and writing samples are not required but may be submitted?" If they're not required, why would I submit them? Are they subtly hinting that I probably should send them that stuff, even though it's not required? Or is this for people who pass the first round of screening? Any ideas?

A: Not applying for this, but if I were, I would submit the minimum materials requested by the online application and then let them request other stuff (dossiers, writing samples) if they want to once they have reviewed the applications. I would guess this language is more HR boilerplate than subtle hint, but that might just be me .....

Q: And which position number should be indicated on the envelope: 004431, 008401, or 086120? Or all of the above?

A: In the absence of any additional information, I would put all three. Seems like this job ad is taking lots of shortcuts. Maybe since they have three positions and four desired emphases, they decided to just throw them all out there and let God sort 'em out (as it were). Sure doesn't make it easy on any of us, though.
