Should we just put our names here? Please vote:
YES: x6 (People should feel free to add their own names but not the names of others, agreed x1) (ok only if publicly listed on dept website x3).
NO: x11 (why?) Confidentiality, obviously (why do you need that?).   Because the job search process is tricky and political, obviously.   Frankly, I don't quite see what good the names could do; if one is not among those invited, knowing who was is not going to change that (x8). I'm against putting down names, but I'd be in favor of adding links to job talk announcements.

Did I miss something? Are we posting status updates here, instead of under the heading for the specific job?

(No, they're also posted under the individual jobs -- this is more of a quick-glance summary)

SO MUCH EASIER to see by posting above than having to scroll through many posts that are not relevant for one's job search. I say to keep the short list. x5

I'm not crazy about it.  x3  The above list, which is in a fairly random order, has now gotten so long that it essentially duplicates the task of scrolling through the full list, which is in a transparent, alphabetical order.  What's the point of listing things twice?

Part of what has made the former list type so long is that people are often posting the *entire* job call onto the wiki. A simple link would suffice!  This is (or should be) an intelligence gathering site---not a job-posting site, per se. 

No longer in random order. [but only chronological order makes sense here. Now this useless list is harder to use!]

EXACTLY. CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES SENSE. OTHERWISE, WE JUST HAVE A DUPLICATED LIST (ONE SLIGHTLY SHORTER THAN THE OTHER). IT WOULD BE GREAT TO GO BACK TO CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER...IT WAS NEVER IN "RANDOM" ORDER.

This section is ridiculous. Do the people who think duplicating effort in this way makes sense not have a search function in their web browsers? If scrolling is such an effort then try searching.

Good luck to everybody with their search! Edit

Reed College Edit

Deadline: 01-Dec-2012

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Description: Reed College seeks applications for a one-year visiting position in Linguistics at the Assistant Professor level for the 2013-14 academic year, to commence August 2013. Applicants should have a strong teaching and research specialization in one or more of the following areas: socio-linguistics, bilingualism and language contact, historical linguistics, or the structure of sign languages. Candidates with research experience in quantitative analysis, experimental methods, and/or fieldwork on understudied languages or language communities, are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience in teaching and advising student research projects is also highly desirable. PhD or ABD in Linguistics required for appointment.

Reed is a selective liberal arts institution with a commitment to teaching excellence and scholar-ship. The appointee will join a small but comprehensive undergraduate linguistics department and offer five semester courses: two sections of our spring introductory course (Introduction to Language, Culture, and Society) along with three upper-division courses. The position also involves supervising year-long senior thesis projects on a wide array of topics within linguistics.

The Linguistics Department is using Interfolio to collect applications for this position electronically. Through Interfolio, please submit a letter of application describing teaching and scholarly interests, along with a CV and samples of scholarly work, and three letters of recommendation. In the letter of application, we encourage you to address how your teaching, scholarship, mentorship, and/or community service might support the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in the College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/). For more information and application instructions, please see the application URL.

All application materials must be received by December 1, 2012. For further information about this position, please contact Matt Pearson.

The Reed community values cultural and intellectual pluralism as essential to the excellence of our academic program. An equal opportunity employer, Reed College encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups.

Rank: assistant professor (tenure track)

Notes:

  • See linguistlist description for application email
  • Does anyone know if it is possible to live (in a *safe* neighborhood) within an hours drive (one way) from the campus on the potential salary?
  • Obviously yes.
  • Not so obvious. The Chronicle reports that the average salary for assistant professors at Stanford is $109,000. I wouldn't be surprised if linguists are on the lower side of that figure. When the cost of living is factored in I doubt a family could live on that salary in Palo Alto...let alone ever own a house. Oakland about 45 minutes away might be a cheaper alternative. Still, in Oakland that salary might only get you an apartment. To put it a bit more in perspective, a $109,000 would be almost twice the salary of some mid-western or southwestern positions at the same level, but once cost of living is factored in you would have far more disposable income and the purchasing power to buy a home and pay off students loans...while that might not be the case for the Stanford position given the relatively high cost of living in the Bay area. UCSD friends of mine have a very long commute and would certainly like to live in a *safer* neighborhood. Whoever asked this question should look at cost of living in the area…
  • Palo Alto is basically unaffordable on a young professor's salary; you'd want to go for something like Mountain View, Campbell, etc., which are much more affordable and all generally nice places.
  • LSA Interview (12/12/12) x6

URL: http://linguistlist.org/issues/23/23-3357.html

Notes:

  • Received email asking for clarification of Canadian residency status 11/14 (x6); 11/20 (x2).
  • Has anyone heard from York?    No  (01/07 x3) (01/09) (01/10 x4) (1/11 x3) (1/14 x3) (1/16 x4) (1/21 x2) (1/22 x2) (1/28 x1)
  • Is this position even being offered anymore? (1/22) - I think they're simply on a more relaxed schedule. Q: Then why was their application deadline so early? Anyone have any insight to the timeline of Canadian hires? A: I think we should expect some news in the next couple of weeks, as far as I know it can be quite a long process...
  • Don't forget that York is a heavily unionized university with quite a bit of Byzantine bureaucracy and procedures that Simply Must Be Followed. Also, the department tends to be a bit politically charged. Q: Politically charged in what way? A: Let's just say that there are more harmonious departments. 
  • I love the conspiracy theories being spun here.  York has already had some campus visits.  This site just isn't being very well updated this season for some reason.  (source: a good friend had a job talk)
  • That's useful info, thanks. Provided it is truthful. (Just kidding). 
  • Just had confirmation from the contact person, two candidates were shortlisted and one is being recommended to the Dean and Provost.
  • The preferred candidate accepted.
