From the one leaving: an opportunity for the whole family arose elsewhere. It has nothing to do with the job here (in case that's why you asked), which has been great (hope it's allowed for me to say that here). I've been meaning to post something in the "places to love" Wiki.

Dec 19: Received (cryptic) email message to join a listserv for the linguistics job search x 10 ...x128, actually. if you follow the link, this is how many addresses are subscribed, leading me to think that this isa glitch in a system set up to send out (optimistically) a mass acknowledgment or (pessimistically) a mass rejection.

Department: Linguistics

Rank: TT Assistant Professor

URL: http://linguistlist.org/issues/22/22-3734.html

Notes:

Did anybody get confirmation of receipt of your application?

Yes, for the Variation job, on 11/12.
- Eep. Did you ask for it? (Could it be that both my mailed AND emailed applications got lost?)
No. (Not really possible.)
Yes, on 11/21. (In reply to an email I sent on 11/15 asking for confirmation.)
Interesting, I didn't get any confirmation and I sent my material on Oct 30th. Should I ask for a confirmation?
Probably not necessary (given the 2 different formats requested) unless it makes a big difference to your anxiety levels. I don't think confirmations are being sent consistently except for those who request it - I got an acknowledgement when I emailed about another matter a few weeks after the deadline.
Invited for LSA interview (12/15)
Any news?
offer made and accepted as of about 3/1
Made public on 3/28, HERE

Georgetown University, SociolinguisticsEdit

Deadline: 15 November, 2011

Department: Linguistics

Rank: TT Assistant Professor

URL: http://linguistlist.org/issues/22/22-3735.html

Notes:

Conf. of receipt via email the day after application was sent (11/10)

Received rejection via email (12/8) x5

Was this rejection received after an interview, or no interview at all?

After no interview.

Interviews with 8 finalists scheduled for LSA or Skype in early Jan.

There seems to be a shortlist. Some job talks have been scheduled, not sure how many candidates. (1/23)

Was there an offer?

yes, and it was accepted.

Apr. 19th - Unless there are TWO acceptors in Portland, OR, the above response relates to the OTHER Socio-Phonetics job.

They have recruited an anthropological linguistics TT AP in addition to filling the socio-phonetics job above. He can also teach sociolinguistics, and he has probably been hired instead of the sociolinguist. He is from Alaska not Oregon (as per Department's e-newsletter on their home page). Since G'town has hired 4 linguists for Fall '12 it's unlikely that will hire anyone else this year.

Harvard University - Syntax - Harvard College FellowEdit

Notes:

applied x3

12-14: contacted for LSA interview x5

01-24: Email notifying me that I am not on short list

1/24: invited for campus visit (sometime in Feb)

1/25: rejection email -- "The search process for the junior faculty position in syntax advertised by our Department is now entering its final stages. We regret to have to communicate to you that you have not emerged as the Department's final choice."

Feb. 3rd, 2012: Two MIT graduates scheduled for Job Talks in February.

They picked a candidate.

There was some info here, why did you delete it? Anyone knows what is happening with this position?

Their candidate of choice has declined their offer. They have now made a second offer, to the semanticist who was on the shortlist.

Is that even legal under affirmative action law? I thought you had to hire in the advertised area, to ensure the whole relevant applicant pool was considered? -- Given that the hire is a woman, I doubt any affirmative action watchdogs would mind. As long as it's not a white male, they ain't care.

Does anybody know why this position attracts all these weird discussions? As I recall people complained about the shortlist having only people from the east coast, about a PhD student getting an offer, gloated that the first candidate rejected the offer, and now everybody's upset that they chose a semanticist. Calm down!

Amen to the previous comment. Congrats to the person who got the offer! -- Can't it be both? Congratulations to the person who got the offer, and gee whiz Harvard has a screwed up process? (x2)

6/2: See HERE.

Weird discussion indeed as it looks like the chosen candidate does both syntax and semantics. -- Don't embarrass yourself. -- Couldn't agree more. To quote from the Great Gatsby...

Candidates will be preferred whose research addresses the multidimensional nature of functional explanation, integrating insights from among the following areas: cross-linguistic and typological approaches to functional explanation for grammar; semantic and pragmatic motivations for grammar; historical change, evolution, and grammaticization; interactional functions and sociolinguistic variation of grammar; cognitive processing of grammar; use of innovative methodologies, such as current techniques for corpus-based quantitative and qualitative analysis; work with understudied language(s).

LSA Interview (1/8)

Got request for a phone/skype interview x 2 (1/11/2012)

Received email (after having a first-round phone/skype interview) saying that a shortlist has been formed and I'm not on it. (1/23/2012) x 2 {C}Six people have been shortlisted for campus visits, and the visits are already in progress. Some details can be inferred from the schedule of talks .

There seems to be a taboo around here on naming names, so let's infer more specifically that the shortlist includes:

Two current Ph.D. students from Harvard
One 2006 Ph.D., University of Frankfurt
One current Ph.D. student at MIT
One 2011 Ph.D, UCLA
One 2011 Ph.D., UC Santa Cruz
Feb. 14, 2012: a candidate has been chosen; the name will be known as soon as the offer is officially extended.
-- And the winner is? Frankfurt ...

From the HSSP page:

Email from school of PPLS: "The PPLS appointment panel made decisions about shortlisting for all Fellowships in the School. The strenght of the applicant field was such that we shortlisted only candidates already submissible for the REF. This meant that everyone shortlisted is some years past their PhD and already in a research or teaching post. We were obliged to choose the people with the strongest records, which simply meant that recent PhDs were not competitive". Frankly, I found this a bit surprising as the scheme sounds like it is aimed more at junior-level applicants but I guess considering the current state of the job market they'll take the highest possible qualified applicants.

Had you written to them? (I also applied, but have heard nothing...) (x2)

University of Hawaii (SLA)Edit

Deadline: December 31, 2011

Field(s): Second Language Acquisition

Department: Second Language Studies

Rank: Assistant Professor

URL: http://www.hawaii.edu/sls/sls/?page_id=1590

Additional info:

Assistant Professor, with specialization in second language acquisition, two positions (position numbers 82418 and 82462), University of Hawai’i at Manoa College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature, full-time, tenure track. The Department of Second Language Studies offers a BA, an MA and a PhD in Second Language Studies as well as an Advanced Graduate Certificate. The University of Hawai’i is a Carnegie “very high research activity university” with a strong orientation to the Asia-Pacific region. The University supports interdisciplinary initiatives within and across departments and colleges and places high value on extramural funding.

Duties and responsibilities: The Department seeks to hire two faculty members at the assistant professor level in the area of second language acquisition to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the area of SLA, with opportunities to teach in other areas of the Department’s curriculum as appropriate.

Of particular interest are candidates whose research focuses on one or more of the following areas:

  • acquisition of SL phonology
  • bilingualism in social and cognitive contexts
  • cognitive, sociocultural, neurological and ecological perspectives in SL learning
  • heritage language learners
  • identity and SLA
  • individual differences in SLA
  • instructed SLA
  • multilingual literacy development
  • technology and SLA
  • young learners.

Minimum qualifications: Doctorate in second language studies, applied linguistics, or closely related field by August 2012. Demonstrated ability to carry out research in the applicant’s major areas of specialization, as evidenced by publication.

Annual 9-month salary range: Commensurate with qualifications and experience

To apply: Send cover letter describing research and teaching interests and experience, a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement (including a list of courses taught), sample publications, and a summary of teaching evaluations. In addition, letters of reference should be submitted directly by three recommenders. All application materials should be sent as email attachments to: slschair@hawaii.edu. Please do not specify position number; application for one implies application for both.

Notes:

Applied: (x3)

I applied on 12/31, but have not received confirmation. Has anyone received confirmation?

  • R: I applied on 12/23 and received confirmation on 12/26.
  • R2: I sent my materials on 12/27 and received a confirmation on 12/28. I'd give them a couple of days to catch up from the holidays.
  • 12 Jan: Recieved request for missing recommendation letter indicating that the rest of my application is in hand.
  • Applied 12/2 and received email confirmation on 12/18 (1/13)

Received an email from their EEO office to provide voluntary applicant race/gender information for administrative purposes. (1/13) x4

Received a second email confirmation that my application was in. First one came on 12/18. Another one today on 1/19. Strange. x5

Feb 4 have not heard anything more than the 2 confirmations.

Feb 4: Me either. It's been over a month and no official word. Strange. Most places start scheduling interviews within a week or two.

  • Not strange at all to me. In this crazy dry market right now, a tenure-track SLA gig at an R1 university in a tropical paradise is the sweetest job on the planet, and they have _two_ of those open along with another in SLEd. They are probably innundated with hundreds of applications, and each poor search committee member can only read but so many while still getting regular work done. I'm surprised they're even managing to move as fast as being able to host campus visits possibly at month's end.

Feb 6: I contacted the dept. asking for an update on the search schedule. They responded that they anticipate inviting finalists to Hawaii for campus visits late Feb early Mar. As far as I know, said finalists have not yet been notified. Just wanted to put this info out there for those of you trying to organize yourselves and figure out where the timing of this search might fit into whatever else you've got going on this season. Good luck!

Feb 15: I heard they are conducting phone interviews over the next couple of weeks.

  • Do you know whether they have contacted those being interviewed yet?

Feb 20: Any news? Has anyone been called for phone interviews or campus visits? Feb 23: Anybody?

Feb 26: I know someone who had a phone interview already but I don't think they've made any decisions about campus visits yet. That phone interview only happened the other day.

March 16th: Rejection email received.

12/14: Received phone interview request (x6)

12/22: Had phone interview on 12/19. They said they would be contacting candidates for campus interviews later in the week. No word yet either way.

12/26: Received notice that I didn't make the shortlist

12/26: No email received yet

12/27: Received an email stating that I am on the alternate list for a campus interview x3

Does this list even mean anything? Who would consider alternates if there are already 3 highly-qualified candidates in the short list?

A: Sometimes candidates look a lot less interesting and impressive once you get them on campus in person. Or, if the candidate is so highly-qualified, they might get multiple offers and turn a few down.

details from the email received 12/19: "They hope to hold phone interviews with 9-12 candidates during the third week of January 2012. If the committee would like to schedule a phone interview with you, hopefully you will be contacted no later than Friday January 13th."

1/15: still no word beyond the email saying they would hopefully contact us by 1/13 x4

1/23: Anyone heard anything?

1/23: I had a phone interview over the weekend. They said they plan to come up with a shortlist within the next week or so. x2

2/16: from the looks of their website , it looks like they have made their shortlist. there are 3 "syntax search" talks and sample lessons listed, and they had told interviewees that the shortlist would be a 3-person list.

2/18 Does anybody know if these "syntax search" talks are actually happening? (One should have already taken place this week, by the schedule.) No rumours concerning the shortlist, no rejection emails, and the talk listings are anonymous. Very strange stuff.

2/27: rejection letter (snail mail) indicating 3 people have been invited to campus

3/13: I heard they are going for the same person as another syntax search...

4/02: At any rate: http://whisc.blogspot.com/2012/04/andrew-mckenzie-goes-to-kansas.html -- this is not the same job. But both have indeed been offerred and, if I'm not mistaken, accepted.

4/08: The syntax position has been offered to and accepted by Jason Kandybowicz (at Texas-Arlington). Andrew McKenzie has accepted an offer for a separate semantics position.

University of Manchester (UK) - General LinguisticsEdit

Field(s): General Linguistics

Department: Linguistics

Rank: Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor)

Additional Info: Candidates with a research specialism in any area of Linguistics are encouraged to apply. A specialism in psycholinguistics and/or child language acquisition may be an advantage.

Notes:

This is a permanent position: unlike in the US, tenure is confirmed upon a satisfactory third-year review. The search is truly open and applications from all subfields are welcomed. The salary scale can accommodate those already having several years of junior faculty experience, and a portfolio of 4 top publications or expected publications between 2008-2013 (for REF submission) is likely to be looked on favorably. Average teaching load is 2:2 with 11-12 teaching weeks per semester.

Notes:

This search is for THREE permanent faculty members all in English Linguistics (broadly defined). Same conditions as above. Candidates may apply for both the English and General positions. There will probably be a (university-level) objective minimum requirement of 2 publications (incl. co-authored) for shortlisting.

I'm pretty sure they have a shortlist now. I'm not on it, but I've been told that someone else is. Not sure what other people's experiences were, but they didn't even get as far as asking my referees for references.

UK departments normally don't ask for references for people they are not going to interview, and I've heard they had several hundred applicants - imagine reading through all those references in addition to everything else!

Notes: Has anyone heard anything?

Dec 2: Not yet.

Dec 2: received request for long-list LSA interview x4

Dec 8: received acknowledgement of receipt and affirmative action survey. I guess they just wanted to tease those of us who didn't get asked for LSA interviews? (x8)

Dec. 19: received e-mail saying I'm not on first-round interview list, but my name is still of serious interest...any ideas what this is supposed to mean?

I'm guessing that means they might interview you if they don't like what they get after LSA

Yes, I'd second that. Sounds like you're an alternate. Nice of them to say something, rather than leaving you in the lurch, as they do to most alternates.

12/20 In the lurch x1

Dec 21: received email saying I'm no longer under consideration for the position x3

Jan 2: received email saying I'm not on the inverview list but that I'm still "under consideration" x3

Jan 17: received invitation for campus visit.

Mar 3rd: There's a 'Past Event' on Feb. 17th, 2012 marked: "Recruitment Colloquium-department speaker - TBD; 04:00PM - 05:30PM"

To above - as I understand it, that was a colloquium that was taking place during *student* recruitment. The campus visits had already concluded by then. (according to a friend who was on the short list)

Mar. 24th: Offer accepted, see HERE.

March 27: The blog post linked to on March 24th was for a different position. As far as I know this search is still open.

-- It's a little more complicated than that: after the campus visits concluded, they petitioned their administration to make two offers, one to their preferred Phon candidate, and one to the person mentioned in the link above (who is more of a neuro-/psycho-linguistics person). That request was approved, but their original Phon candidate chose another offer over them. So on the assumption that the Phon position still exists, this search is not over.

They have determined that other candidates are a better match based on job requirements and department needs. ") x2

Those of us who read the wiki were already rejected in the third person. I'd say getting rejection letters out within a week of scheduling interviews is better than most. At least they didn't send out affirmative action cards this late.

I didn't even get a rejection email (or an interview invitation). Anyone else? (12/15) x5

Seems like it could be good (maybe you're on a long list of potential candidates) or bad (are you sure all of your materials made it in on time?).
