NOTES:

  • Also posted at Early American 2019
  • Trouble applying? Some people have had difficulties because the system seems to require three extra documents besides those required (cover letter; current CV; statement of teaching philosophy; writing sample (20–25 pages); a copy of transcripts for each graduate degree held). Those extra spaces are NOT for recommendations (for those you simply enter the person's email). Rather, they are for optional documents. If you cannot finish your application without submitting in those slots, please just upload three blank documents. That will satisfy the system and the documents listed above will satisfy the search committee.
