Does anyone have any thoughts about this late posting? Is there a budget issue? An inside hire?

- odd listing with deadline on a Sunday. Not advertised on Chronicle. Def. seems like inside hire.

FWIW: this position is also posted at H-Net: https://www.h-net.org/jobs/job_display.php?id=43881 (1/7)

-it's not announced as a hard deadline, but as "review will begin."

According to the letter, they should have begun contacting people this week. Has anyone heard anything?

Nope . . .
