University of Utah (UT) -  Asst. Professor (Non-TT) - Honors College - OFFER ACCEPTEDEdit

The Honors College at the University of Utah invites applicants for a core Honors faculty position. Honors College faculty are non-tenured, career-line faculty who enjoy highly competitive salaries and excellent benefits. The College is seeking an Assistant Lecturer (3 year appointment with possibility of renewal) to teach in the Intellectual Traditions curriculum.

Intellectual Traditions (IT) courses are not “great books” courses, but rather, look at important, fundamental questions about the human experience. These courses are designed to stimulate students to be intellectually adventurous and provide them with a common honors experience. Courses ask overarching questions, such as: What does it mean to be human? How free are humans to act? How do we come to truth? What constitutes moral behavior? Are there divine forces? Is war justifiable? IT courses are currently organized into 3 separate semester-length classes that focus on the ancient world (beginnings to 30 CE), common era (30-1600 CE), and modern age (1600-present).

The Honors College at the University of Utah is one of the oldest honors programs in the country and known for its commitment to the liberal arts and innovative, engaged pedagogy. The curricula and co-curricular programs are intended to develop ethical citizens for the twenty-first century through engagement with intellectual traditions, research, global education and the local community. Students come from across the country and are typically socially conscious, have graduated in the top 10% of their class and are motivated to fully engage the resources available to them at the University of Utah. The faculty and staff are a close-knit community of collaborative and creative individuals.

The University of Utah, an AA/EO employer, encourages applications from women and minorities, and provides reasonable accommodation to the known disabilities of applicants and employees. The University of Utah values candidates who have experience working in settings with students from diverse backgrounds, and possess a strong or demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for historically underrepresented students.

University of Utah JobID# PRN01036F

Qualifications Applicants from any field in the humanities (or related discipline) will be considered. The successful applicant will be an effective and creative faculty member eager to teach within a broad liberal arts context. The candidate should have a terminal degree (Ph.D.) in a relevant discipline; evidence of successful teaching at the university level (experience beyond graduate teaching assistantships strongly preferred); experience with motivated and diverse students; demonstrable interest in creative pedagogy; ability to communicate disciplinary interests within a broadly humanistic curriculum; experience with multicultural or global perspectives in course or program development.

The position is full-time (3/3 teaching load), plus honors thesis mentoring and other efforts in support of student success, as necessary. Salary is highly competitive, depending on qualifications, and start date is August 1, 2015.

Applications: Full applications should contain (i) a cover letter addressing teaching and research interests, as well as how you would enrich the Honors College’s liberal arts education; (ii) a curriculum vitae, including contact information for 3 references; (iii) a proposed Intellectual Traditions syllabus that conforms to the principles described above for one time period (ancient, medieval, modern).

  • Any News?  Thought this might go quickly.
  • Nothing here (3/11) X2
  • I suspect that they got hundreds of applicants for such good jobs. Long term lecturship positions with professional development too?  Be still, my heart.  I haven't heard anything either, but don't expect to for a little while. Don't forget they're trying to fill three positions.  Again, I expect the applicants are in the several hundreds.
  • Do you really think it's ONLY in the several hundreds.  I'm assuming that for jobs like this where there is no specific specialization would be around 5-700. Highly specific jobs get several hundreds.
  • There is no specialization, but these are 100 level literature courses - probably almost entirely freshman and sophomore students - you have to have experience teaching this population and know what you're doing.  I don't know about 5 - 700 applicants, but I certainly would think at least 300 or so.  I agree that highly specific jobs get a lot of applicants as well.  
  • Wondering if they're doing this search in batches - has anyone else not heard one way or another yet? [4/14] --My understanding was that on-campus interviews would take place through 4/17. I have heard nothing yet (as of 4/28) in the way of a final decision, but maybe the top 3 have.
  • 2 hires made, both in British Lit (19th & Modernism).  One American offer made & declined (Modernism).  That hire is being tabled for next Fall.  2 of 3 offers were to internal candidates (former VAPs), and they have 2 internal Americanist candidates who were out of the running, this year, as ABDs.

  • This university has had several positions in recent years. Any info on teaching load / research / general life?
    • Worked here previously. Teaching load for an Assistant Professor is typically 3/3 (often with at least 2 of those courses being the same, just different sections). Instructor is 4/4. Rank is determined by the number of publications you have that correspond with Bilkent's list of acceptable journals (which does not include a number of publications that would be recognized in the US or UK). Research is strongly encouraged (I believe there is a 'bonus' of sorts for every work published under Bilkent affiliation). The library holdings are pretty strong for the location, interlibrary loan is available for anything missing. You can also request a hefty chunk of relevant books to be ordered by your alotted librarian (the university has money and is committed to becoming a reconized European institution). General life is good. The university is in a relatively affluent, very westernized part of Ankara. Housing (and internet - without the country's various internet restrictions) is provided in the faculty village (on campus), buses throughout the university and to the city are free and run often. The campus is like many others - lots of good (and cheap) places to eat, 2 gyms, concert hall, modern buildings, etc. Great group of expats and their families teaching there. Free Turkish lessons to faculty and families (which is useful, since outside of campus, English is a bit sparse). Couple applicants encouraged (so that's a rarity). Please let me know if you have any more specific questions. Best of luck with the app.

  • A: Not sure, probably something like a faith statement? They are very serious about their faculty signing off on their doctrinal statement. I know someone who reached a late stage in a search there but didn't get the job because s/he wanted to substitute a personal faith statement for Biola's statement.

If the listing says review of materials will begin November 15, why is the committee already requesting additional materials? Is it common practice for schools to start the review process early?

  • - Sorry, that was a mistake on my part: I meant to fill in acknowledgment received and went down one line too far. I've deleted that entry and added a tally in the acknowledgment received column.
  • A new low - rejected for this position, and I didn't even apply for it???
  • Top candidates were supposed to be notified in early January. Any word?
  • RE: early January notification: I asked the department chair about this a couple of weeks ago. He said there was an incorrect e-mail sent out suggesting an early January notification, and that they weren't planning on making a decision until after MLA. I assume if they have made a decision by this point, it's being vetted by the administation--that's just how they roll.
  • I just got a rejection email today (1/27) addressed to someone who is not me. Don't know what to make of that.
  • I also got a rejection addressed to someone else. I followed up, they apologized, but said I was indeed out of the running.

NOTES:

  • Anyone else submit materials before the deadline but not receive an acknowledgment?  I double checked that I sent it to the correct email, but haven't heard anything... and I'm starting to get anxious!
  • I applied well before the deadline and it still took a bit for an acknowledgement. I think this is because it was an actual email from a person (not an auto-send), which was kind. My guess is the poor person writing them is inundated and slowly working through them.
  • Same here--I got a later response apologizing for the late response.  It did seem like it was from one person, who is simply wading through dozens--hundreds?--of applications.  I get the sense that they haven't started contacting people yet, and the review date of the 7th may have been optimistic (or so I tell myself!).
  • I submitted my materials before the deadline and still (11/30) haven't received an acknowledgment.  It looks like they're on to interviews now though.
  • I haven't received an acknowledgment either (I also submitted materials before the deadline). It's a little frustrating that they've sent out interview requests but no acknowledgment... it makes one wonder...

Does anyone understand why there is now an Interfolio link with a December 12th deadline? The directions in the advertisement are to email materials by November 7th.

  • Unless I am mistaken, the initial ad simply said review would begin on Nov. 7th. Perhaps they added a deadline because they were receiving a larger than anticipated number of applications (which is not suprising given the number of positions and range of courses). That's my best guess. 

Dear colleagues, search chair here.  Thank you for your interest in our position.  We have indeed received over 1,000 applications, and our poor departmental secretary is charged with sending confirmations as she tries to sort through the volume.  Blessings upon her.  Interfolio may have said Dec. 12 because that's the deadline we originally listed for the ad to be pulled from the MLA job list.  Given the volume of apps, by mid-November I changed our MLA listing to say that we were no longer accepting applications.  Sorry for any confusion.  Thank you for your patience!

  • Good lord, over a thousand applications for one position at a school with an enrollenment of a little over a thousand. Talk about long odds!
  • It is a startling figure, but it's also true multiple positions covering multiple specialities were advertised originally (2 TT and 1 FT Non-TT according to the ad above). So it's perhaps not that surprising?
  • Whew, imagine my relief: cuts it down to only about 333 applicants per position. So in there.

Would those of you with interviews be kind enough to say your areas? Also, do you have PhDs in-hand?

  • PhD in-hand. VAP Experience at SLAC. Creative Writing and American Lit. Lots of comp experience. Can teach British Victorian.
  • Same as above: VAP experience at SLAC, PhD in-hand, broad teaching experience.
  • PhD in-hand. Currently in first year at a CC. Broad teaching experience and research interests.
  • ABD. Broad publication record. Writing center experience.
  • Hmm, the department secretary emailed for address confirmation today, but there was no mention of a campus interview. Is this standard practice even for rejected candidates? Did others have this experience?
  • To the above poster: Received same email this morning and then received campus invite call from SC chair in the evening. Could be that they're mailing rejection letters, but could also be that they didn't get a chance to call everyone today. I wish I could tell you which one!
  • any word on this one post-campus visit?
  • None yet. Was hoping to maybe hear last week. It's possible that offer(s) went out and they're waiting to inform the others, but obviously no way of knowing at this point. I believe they're on spring break as well.

NOTES:

  • Can those who've gotten requests for more materials share what your field is? (British/American, that sort of thing?) [10/21]
  • I'm in modernism.
  • American, modernism
  • British, twentieth century
  • I sense a pattern developing
  • Do you think the pattern indicates that the committee prefers applicants working in the 20th century (i.e. this is a 20th-c ad dressed up as a general poetics ad) or just that they are notifying long-list people in order of historical field (perhaps reverse chronological order)?
  • I don't know, but they are also running a separate search in British Modernism.
  • Yes, I find it very odd that with two searches running, one in British Modernism, that they would be so heavily invested in Modernist candidates for this position. It makes me concerned that the Modernism search may be called off? Especially since they've obviously moved so fast on this search and haven't sent out info regarding the Modernism position? Could they be trying to fill both teaching needs with this one position so they can scratch the pay-line for the Modernism one?
  • That certainly seems like a plausible scenario, given that the British modernism ad, like this ad, asked for so few materials. One would think the British modernism committee would have begun by now to request references, etc. (again, as the committee behind this poetics ad has done). Not much they can do with just a CV and cover letter. And it is striking that no other fields besides modernism have been contacted per this wiki. The next couple weeks should tell.
  • note that in the email asking for an interview for the poetry and poetics job, the chair of the department mentioned that they are running three searches, which would indicate that the modernism search is still on. 
  • Also got a request; early modern poetry (x2)
  • It's possible that we've mostly seen twentieth-century people reporting requests for more material since there are a disproportionate number of modernists to begin with.
  • Yes; simple answers are best: there's also a VAP in the dept. who fits the bill for this ad, and is a 20th c. Americanist.  Most likely the ad is designed for him and/or the dept. wants the new position to continue the work he's been doing.
  • An email just went out (11/21) indicating that the SC intends to have an interview list by December 12th and will be making accommodations (e.g. Skype) for those not attending MLA. I'm not 100% sure if this email relates to the poetry/poetics position or the British modernism one, but I suspect it's the former. (x2)
  • Did anyone else out there receive an MLA invite? Please post.
