NOTES:

  • Didn't they do a search for a VAP last year? Internal candidate anyone?
  • these sorts of paranoid comments are really annoying. yes, it's a bad market. no, not everything is a conspiracy. a TT faculty member just left; this search will replace that person. +!
  • There were plenty of schools last year that didn't hire the "inside candidate." Sometimes the candidate gets a job elsewhere.
  • For what it's worth, the VAP there just did a job talk of sorts at another school as part of a target of opportunity search, so there's another reason not to assume that this is simply an internal hire.

NOTES:

  • Also posted at Medieval 2017
  • The Interfolio link here does not work.
  • I think you have to apply through the regular university employment site first, and then you will be emailed the correct Interfolio link for the other materials. Hopefully, someone else has already applied and can confirm this [10/29]
  • Applying through the regular university employment site doesn't work either: the page at which you're supposed to upload documents doesn't allow any documents to be uploaded. Anyone have suggestions?
  • I didn't have any trouble with the university website, but I remember having a hard time finding St. Lawrence U on Interfolio. If you start a new delivery and search for it, I don't think that the job comes up. But *I think* (I'm no sure) that I searched for an "early modern" job or "Global English" and Interfolio found the correct link for a free submisison. Perhaps getting in touch with the department assistant might help?
  • Again, I *think* you fill out the basic info. at the HR employment site and then you are *emailed* the Interfolio link that allows you to actually upload the documents. At least that was how another SLU search was reported to work on another page. Perhaps it's worth a try? It is a bit irksome that they don't give a specific contact for questions ... the Interfolio link provided through the MLA job announcement is broken (as above), but that's not the case with all the other positions they are advertising in other fields. [11/1]
  • I just corrected the Interfolio link above; it worked 2 minutes ago. [11/3]
  • Thank you!
  • Interfolio link to send letters works but the employment page part is still broken; no way to upload the remaining docs (cv/cover letter/sample syllabi). Anyone know what's going on?
  • As I understand the instructions, the docs only need to go through Interfolio. Their own page does not require them, just the formal application.
  • The Interfolio link is not working again today, but I found it by searching "Early British." [11/15]
