NOTES:

  • - Seems this might be an internal hire? One of their VAP's interests match the job description pretty closely...   
  • Wouldn't worry about internal hires too much. At least two 18th century jobs last year seemed to have strong internal VAPs, and both schools hired externally. 
  • Also posted at Renaissance 2017
  • Can I just say: having been through the market pummeling more than once, this is by far the most thoughtful acknowledgment of materials I've seen, including even a timeline for review! They deserve credit for that.

NOTES:

  • Also posted at Romanticism/Victorian/19th 2017
  • This is a VERY specific list of desired expertises, and, lo and behold, they've got a non-tenure track visitor who meets all the criteria. 
  • I typically discourage this sort of worry, given the actual record on "inside hires," but the specificity of this posting is truly unlike anything I've seen in eighteenth-century jobs in past years. Certainly not your typical "subspecialty" category language here.
  • Yes, I'm usually skeptical as well. But the reason I pointed this out is that it's so egregious. The listing on higheredjobs doesn't contain the specialization language (that's practically taken from a dissertation title). I don't know if they had second thoughts or whether the version we have here was tampered with. There might be an earlier version up on highered that I missed. I think we should apply anyway.
  • This seems like a genuine inside hire. Few really ever are, even if there is an insider. Most times inside hires fail. Everyone should apply.
