  • Have interviews been scheduled?  Does anyone know anything? (12/5)
  • I haven't heard anything but my application is probably out of consideration since 2/3s of my original letter writers never got a prompt from their HR to submit a letter so I had to get last minute letter writers since two of my originals were out of the country and difficult to get a hold of. Very frustrating especially since I thought I had a decent shot at this one. (12/6)
  • Thanks, I don't think my letter writers were contacted either - I'm pretty sure.  Has anyone out there been notified that their referees were contacted? (12/6)
  • I found out because I received a notification that one of my letter writers had uploaded her letter five days before the deadline. After dealing with their HR department for a couple days regarding this issue, I think it was a technical issue on their end and I wouldn't be surprised if they are taking so long because they have so many incomplete applications and have to request letters now. (12/6)
  • How is there a "deadline" if the job post reads that it's "open until filled? Isn't this a ROLLING deadline, then? FYI: I filled out my application last week, and the job post link is still active on the campus job search webserver.
  • It states "Deadline: 11/1/13 (open until filled)" right above. The review date is the deadline date. You want to make sure you have your materials sent to them before this date so that you recieve priority recognition. You are far less likely to receive an interview if you miss the review date.  It's not impossible though. They may not have started reviewing, or they may not have found a suitable candidate. <-- That "DEADLINE" listing is a format of the wiki page. The link to the original ad on CUNY's site reads "Open until filled with the review of applications to begin on November 1, 2013." So I agree that applicants should ideally get their materials in by that date, I do not think it's a cutoff or radical handicap to submit afterward. So I do not agree, as you state, "the review date is the deadline date."
  • That's what I'm saying. under DEADLINE I listed the review date to keep with the formatting, but also listed open until filled.
  • Has anyone heard back after Skype interview? (2/7)
  • > Yes, had a campus visit. Waiting for decision.
  • >>> Same here. I think today is the final campus visit (2/19)
  • Any news?
  • Did they end up hiring someone for this position? Just curious.
  • Received rejection letter. I believe they hired someone (4/18)

The disciplinary affiliation of an applicant is of less importance than the quality of his/her research and the demonstrated appreciation for multidisciplinary approaches to the study of children and childhood.  We are particularly interested in receiving applications from those whose work addresses the following areas, broadly conceived, and can speak to both national and transnational contexts: children’s sexualities, literacies, media, health behavior, geographies and disabilities.  We seek applicants with experience supervising doctoral students and interest in contributing to leadership roles within the department.

Childhood Studies offers a robust, multidisciplinary curriculum for BA, MA, and Ph.D. degrees.  The Department has hosted several major international conferences, sponsors an array of lectures and symposia, and annually welcomes visiting scholars from around the world. It enjoys an active faculty and graduate student body whose work often integrates scholarship with social engagement. 

Rutgers University—Camden, a beautiful, urban campus expanding to accommodate the growth of Southern New Jersey, is located just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia.  Rutgers is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  The University and our Department seek to attract an active, culturally diverse faculty of the highest caliber.  Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Candidates can learn about the campus and the Department of Childhood Studies at http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu/ and by contacting Department Chair, Dr. Lynne Vallone.
