  • NOTE from "Application for Faculty Employment": "Concordia University Irvine (hereafter referred to as CUI ) does not discriminate in hiring or employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. CUI is a Christian educational institution operated by The Lutheran Church―Missouri Synod and, in compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, reserves the right to give preference in employment based upon religion. I understand that all employees of CUI are expected to respect the official teachings of the Christian faith and to pursue lifestyles that are morally in harmony with Scripture."
  • Does anyone know what to make of the message from HR about needing to join a Lutheran congregation? I'm not sure if it's a rejection or not.
    • Not a rejection. It sounds like you must be a devout Christian. There probably will be preference given to those applicants who are Lutheran, though. (Just a guess.)

NOTES:

--world lit? It would be mighty useful if they added "Not British or American" or some such description. I'm tempted to apply even though I do British pretty exclusively. Any thoughts?

  • Well, I feel obliged to point out that 'world lit' is its own (contested) field these days. If you're not familiar with it, perhaps this position isn't quite the right fit. With that said, though, I'm generally of the 'more the merrier' mindset when it comes to applications, so it's your call
  • Could anyone please explain why there are three different dates on which the requests for additional materials were made? 
  • I'm from the second round of requests. Either they're still checking the apps they got, or they don't like the 2 short lists they've made so far. In either case, it's not comforting!
  • I'm from the first round of requests and just received a confirmation that they received the extra stuff today (12/13). Not sure what that means, but I agree that the wait isn't comforting!
  • Anyone with an interview (or who received a request for add'l materials) willing to say their field or subfields? This was a dream ad for me (I've got some several of the "auxiliary interests) and I can't make sense of why I didn't even get a request for more materials. (Don't worry, not in the habit of wallowing over these things, the "fit" here just seemed so great.) Any info much appreciated!

  • From Renaissance 2014: "Rejection email (3/11) reads "position has been filled""

NOTES:

  • Anyone heard anything about this?
  • No. (12/16)
  • There is a VAP there. Perhaps we won't hear anything if they've went that direction.
  • There is a VAP there now, yes. I'm not sure the mere presence of the VAP indicates anything. If they did go in that direction, though, was this even a legitimate search? Perhaps it would be worth it to some bold soul to actually inquire of the search committee chair what the story is? Or even simply when decisions regarding interviews will be made? The deadline was Nov 1. As of this post, it's Dec 21, and most committees will surely not be meeting over the holidays. (12/21)
  • I've written (23/12): will let you all know what if anything comes back.
    • 'We are interviewing at the MLA, and we decided that what we most want is someone who specializes in poetry before 1800.'--that as all.  No salutation, no nothing,  My guess is its not a real search.  
  • Any updates on this one after MLA?

This job has been deleted from HigheredJobs and the Chronicle - is it an inside job? 10/17

I inquired about the position, and the chair was very, very, very slow in responding. I think it's an inside hire as well.

Wasn't this job already advertised earlier this year? This morning, it showed up again on the Chronicle of Higher Education.

  • 12/7/13: The job (actually 2 TT positions) posted yesterday appears to be significantly different. It is now posted at Rhetoric/Composition 2014
  • On "my applications," it says "posting closed." Does that mean the position is filled?

  • Has anyone else applied through the online application yet? It didn't seem possible to submit letters of recommendation that way, since the only option was to uplod documents from your own hard drive. I'm guessing I should just have Interfolio send them to the listed contact person (Pam Johnson)?
    • Just applied, there was a button that said "references" and I added my contacts with their Interfolio email addresses, but they do ask for letters, but there was nowhere else to upload them.  I will contact as well.
    • Oh, I should have updated (I'm the poster 2 above). I contacted Pam Johnson, who said she was happy to receive letters from Interfolio.

NOTES:

  • Q: Has anyone heard anything since MLA?
  • A: Not here. Same thing for other jobs. Wiki is not showing development for a few jobs since MLA this year. I've been wondering if campus invites are taking place with non-wiki users for a few of these jobs.
  • I believe sometimes people get more paranoid about posting campus interview requests (than MLA or phone) because it's obviously a smaller group. However, I think there are actually more generalized ways to share this info. without implicating yourself, so hopefully someone will post news when they have it. Also, if you've interviewed and some time has passed, you might check with a dept. admin. to see where they're at in the process. [2/2]
  • It is my understanding, unfortunately, that campus interviews have been arranged. [posted Feb. 3]
    • Thanks for posting this info.
  • This is pure speculation, but I think there could be an inside frontrunner for this job anyway. They very pointedly asked in the interview if I could teach Shakespeare. There is a VAP at the main Wyoming campus who specializes in Renaissance (and who, thanks to the cc instead of bcc on the AA email, I know applied for the job). It seemed like a very nice group of people and I wish them well in completing their search!
    • FWIW, I wasn't asked if I could teach Shakespeare. I was asked if I could teach American lit, creative writing, and public writing. (I also didn't get a campus invite, though.)
