For those who had additional materials requested, would you mind sharing if you're applying at the Assistant Prof. level or the Assoc./Full Prof. level?

I can summarize what the academic job market is telling virtually every one of us: leave academia. And actually, it's good advice.

  • That's a little pessimistic, don't you think? What is unreasonable about having to already have a tenure-track job, a book under contract, a superstar advisor, and an Ivy League Ph.D. just to get an interview at a regional directional university?

  • I've been on the market for seven years. I've received rejections anywhere from two days to eighteen months after searches close, and of course (too) many departments never send a formal noification.

  • [13 Jan 2019] Wait, two offers accepted for one job? What am I missing here?
  • [13 Jan 2019] It's uncommon but not unheard of. R1s with deep pockets will sometimes let departments make an extra offer if the dept chair can make a compelling reason to the dean. In addition, Pitt tries to hire rockstars who are often juggling multiple offers or might leave after a year or two so there is likely some 3-dimensional chess going on here. Rather than make just one offer and potentially lose out on both your 1st choice, who is playing you for a counteroffer at their home institution, and your 2nd choice, who already has an offer in hand and needs to make a decision, make offers to both and let the chips fall where they may.
  • It is very common for departments to ask for two candidates to be hired in searches where there is either extrodinary talent or extrodinary need or a combination of both. Some searches are also priority hires for the university.
