NOTES:

  • I got a somewhat hard to decipher email this morning from Antioch that asked whether I would need sponsorship to work in the U.S. (I wouldn't). I haven't received a request for an interview prior to this email. Has anyone else received a similar email request? [posted 3/7]; I received one of these on 3/7, and was called the next day to schedule a phone interview.
  • Antioch is a clueless college. I applied for this same postion a few year ago and I needed visa. After skype interivew they asked me if I will need visa. I said yes. I never heard back from them. They are still in the same situation. They could simply say in the ad they cannot sponsor or make people do application form that asks if you will need visa question as most universities do. Instead they reject you after interviewing you. They need to get their act together.
  • So, can the original poster confirm that a phone interview was in fact conducted? I remain confused as to whether Antioch has conducted interviews or if they're still sifting through applications.
  • In response to the above query, I can say that I had a phone interview nearly two weeks ago. We're awaiting word on campus interviews now. I was under the impression that the initial screening phase was over.
  • I can also confirm a phone interview took place already.
  • I'm also confirming a phone interview, which took place over 2 weeks ago. It's currently March 28, 2016, and I haven't received any more news on the status of my candidacy .
  • I'm reporting an invitation for a campus interview. [4/7]
  • Any updates after campus interviews for these two positions?

NOTES:

  • Does anyone know what the starting date for this position is? (7/1)
  • Has anyone heard anything about this job?  (10/16)
  • Nothing. My guess is the committee is in an intense Italian food-coma.
  • Did they request the additional materials before or after a preliminar interview? This Institution is bizarre. And what would be the starting date? Still unclear. (10/28)
  • The food coma is so thick I doubt anyone on the committee can answer these basic questions.
  • Any news about this position? Anyone interviewed? Shortlisted? Hired? (1/27)
  • I assume that the committee has interviewed and possibly hired at this point. I received a notice that I'd been selected for a "more extensive review" on the 22nd of October, before any interview. At that time, I was unable to further commit to the position, and withdrew my application. I can say without hesitation that nothing about my interactions with the search committee was "bizarre" or suggested anything like a "food-coma." They were very frank, personable, and timely in our exchanges regarding the requirements of the position, and for this reason, I think it is highly likely that they have moved forward with the search, and that this information simply hasn't been posted on the Wiki (1/28).

NOTES:

  • Also posted at CreativeWriting 2016 and Rhetoric/Composition 2016
  • It's good to know this Maritime Academy supports the war on drugs.
  • SEARCH UPDATE 11/10/16: Search Cancelled 
  • Question on the search cancellation: Is this based on the listing's diappearance from the HR website? Despite it being gone, I emailed my materials to HR anyway last week. The next day, they sent me a more detailed MMA application to fill out and had me resend my materials (this was a person, not an automated response). Anyone have more specific info on what happened?
  • From CreativeWriting 2016: 11/19/15:  they have decided "not to fill the position at this time" -- Elizabeth C. Benway, Director, HR.
  • I never expected this job to become such an emotional rollercoaster. I'd assume the maritimers would have some semblance of discipline rather than flipflopping every other week. Good riddance.
  • Good (?) to know it's not just me. After a phone interview in October, I was contacted for a campus visit in November. Two days later came the alleged search cancellation, at which point I was told I'd still be a candidate if the search resumed soon. But in early December, the above-quoted Ms. Benway sent a letter from informing me that my candidacy was no longer being pursued; that "the screening committee has decided to proceed with other candidates." (Which doesn't sound at all like they'd decided "not to fill the position.") I didn't receive the letter until January (winter break travel). When I sought confirmation by email (because it seemed so odd), I was told that, indeed, MMA was "in the process of extending an offer of employment to another person." Aren't there rules about this sort of thing, i.e. dishonest and/or otherwise unethical treatment of candidates?

The successful candidate will teach approximately 50% fiction courses, and 50% other English department courses. This division of effort could vary, depending on department need and course demand.

Contracts are renewed yearly based on performance evaluations.

Lecturer Role: According to Policies 4250 and 7000 in Boise State University's Policy Manual, and English Department practices, A.a lecturer's primary responsibility is teaching non-clinical courses in degree and/or certificate programs for an academic year. B.a lecturer is not eligible for tenure, may or may not have responsibilities for research or creative activity, and may serve on a wide range of academic or governance committees subject to policies of the department, the college, and the university.
