NOTES AND QUERIES:

does anyone have any ideas about what to do if your letters of ref are through an interfolio system? I.e. how can these letters be included as part of the single pdf? I can't see a contact email or address :(

I had the same problem. I called their Human Resources department and they told me to contact Edward Larkin: elarkin@udel.edu

Did Larkin respond to you? I also called HR and they told me to send the letters of rec to the Search Com Chair, Prof James Dean. I emailed Dean yesterday morning (3/26) to ask if this was correct and so far he hasn't replied. Their entire online application system is a disaster.

Sorry to break it to you, but a rather reliable source has infonrmed me that the position has been unoficially offered and accepted already. In other words, this search is nothing but a formality. The fact that it has been advertized so late in the hiring season, its absence from the JIL/Chronicle lists, AND the search committee's complete lack of cooperation -- all seem very suspicious. But then again, it's only a rumor so feel free to ignore it.

  • In fairness, as noted above, the position has been advertised in the Chronicle (though not, far as I can tell on the JIL yet). I do agree that the other factors mentioned could be red flags, however.
  • a rotten burgh. I'd withdraw my vote if only I didn't need a job.

Dr. Larkin sent me a very cursory response. When I followed up with him, he did not respond. The theory that the position has already been filled makes some sense. Either way, I agree that their application system is a disaster. Right now, I've submitted my cover letter and CV. I figure if they're at all serious about filling the position, they'll probably follow up at some point and ask for the rest, at which point I'll request further clarification on how to do this.

Other red flags: Any committee that is serious about finding a candidate will advertise on the JIL. Everyone knows that the Chronicle isn't the best place to look for jobs. Moreover, if you check out the other advertised position in the department (the Assistant Professor of English in Professional Writing), you'll notice that this one has a clear deadline with the usual rhetoric. So I agree with the OPs - something's not quite right. Perhaps this was a spousal hire?

I hate to chime in with bad news but I also heard that there was an inside candidate. I do not know if it is a spouse or a visiting or what. Nor do I know if the job has unofficially been offered but have been told its not worh my time applying. All I can say is that if they do bring people for campus visits who knows what can happen. I've seen inside candidates lose the vote in the end and the job go to someone else. So maybe its worth doing anyway. For those concerned about the application process the link above to the HR page provides clearer instructions.

Does their dean have no involvement in approving candidates? I am also wondering why the search is taking place so late in the academic year and long after MLA.

  • There are many reasons why a school may not advertise via MLA (a late approval of a line because of a pending budget decision, for example, or a last-minute retirement), and many schools skip MLA each year. Check this year's page, and you will see that many schools didn't use MLA and several advertised after it had happened. This is especially common with smaller schools that don't want to spend the money to send a committee to MLA. Interviewing at MLA is a job-market convention, nothing more.

Unfortunately, your bulleted response did not answer my question. In terms of "smaller schools not wanting to spend money," let me give you some perspective. I worked at a state university, mid-atlantic with approximately 15,000 students, that complained about paying to send committee members to MLA. I now work at a mid-size college, same region with about 8,000 students, that sent three of us to interview 6 candidates at MLA and 4 candidates via Skype. In my mind, it was clearly a waste of money as three of our final four were Skyped, and the one candidate that was interviewed at MLA accepted an offer elsewhere. Many schools advertised that they would interview via Skype, while some simply stated "not all interviews will be conducted at MLA," in order to protect themselves. This is the nature of our industry.

No VAP position appears in last year's listing. Something else to keep in mind is that even though there may be an inside candidate, they still must consider and bring to campus other candidates. I was on a search committee this year and the inside candidate did not get the job. It does happen. Has anyone heard anything recent on this posting?

Nope.

I heard that there has been an unofficial offer made to the inside candidate. The national search is universty policy. Heard from a good source its a waste of time to apply. But...who knows. The above poster is correct, sometimes things happen and the inside candidate does not get the job.

The least they can do is state on the ad that there's a preferred candidate. That happens all the time in the non-academic world.

NOTES AND QUERIES:

Any news on the status of the search? Have they done campus interview requests yet?

FYI, check out the salary range for this position. Apparently, their salaries have flatlined since 2000.

Where does one find that sort of information?

A: On the internet. FYI, salaries for many state universities and colleges are quite commonly disclosed to the public. See Chronicle, Glassdoor, state records, etc,.

Is this why the previous Victorianist left (in response to the below comment)?

A: No.

Anyone know why they are doing such a late review of applications?

A: I think their Victorianist *just* left.

A2: "Just retired," from what I heard.

Wow, I get the feeling that someone (above) HATES this school. My brother did his undergraduate degree in English at Valdosta State and loved it. He said that both the student and faculty communities (and the relationship between both) were great. It doesn't seem like such a bad school ***also -- shouldn't some of the above be moved to "universities to fear" rather than posting it here -- trying to freak out candidates?

  • What is more surprising to me is that as a scholar, you are not able to do your own research and make your own conclusions. Again, there is plenty of data online about Valdosta. I have also heard the faculty at Valdosta are quite collegial. However, if you came into this industry merely to make friends, you are doing yourself a disservice. If you can't find the data about faculty salaries at Valdosta from 2000-2012, I'd be happy to provide it to you. Finally, might I suggest you review postings for all of the jobs on this thread. Scholars do compete for jobs, but their greatest struggles are with administrators and governing bodies that fail to recognize how valuable professors are at creating and shaping their academic communities. Sadly, I do not anticipate this changing much. Best wishes to you all on your job search.
  • The Chronicle has an assistant professor at Valdosta State U making around $53,000 ("in the 19th percentile of MA institutions in the survey")
  • FYI, the Chronicle's "salary ranges" are not for entry level professors. They are an average of the high and low salaries for professors at a particular rank at a university/college. E.g., Let's say you are starting at 44 as an entry level assistant professor (1st full-time job), while a fourth or fifth year a.p. is making anywhere from 48-50. Averaging your numbers gives the salary provided by Chronicle. It is not a good way of estimating what you might "actually" be offered.
  • Just to jump in here : it will depend on the institution. I did a quick search and have to say that some are pretty close. I am referring to my own institution as well as few other places I interviewed with. You really have to talk to current faculty in the English department. Mind, you will will be told the entry salary during the campus visit, if not at the mla interview.
  • any news? anyone.... ? anything since the phone interview?

Q: While I was assuming that this position might skip MLA, I think I imagined there might be a round of phone interviews. Did they really jump ahead to campus visits? I'm bummed if that's the case...

Moving straight to campus interviews is actually a fairly common practice at Canadian schools (they tend to run searches closer to the UK model). Occasionally, some Canadian schools will do phone interviews (but almost never conference interviews); however, I'd say that's more the exception than the rule ...

12/15: Have any of the semifinalists had requests for further materials? I haven't, and I'm guessing that means I'm not going to make the next round, bummer.

12/1: (Don't know where exactly this should go) Rec'd word today that they'd made a semifinal selection, from 275 applications down to 33.

Do you mean that you were told today that you were one of those semifinalists, or do you have an inside source who knows such a cut has been made? Just wondering if not hearing this information today means that I haven't made the cut. (I'm guessing it does.)

A: I'm not the OP, but I did receive an email today, 12/1, telling me I was one of the semifinalists. (x4)
A: OP here. I was told I was a semifinalist & know someone else who was, also. Sorry for lack of clarity.

12/2 guess I didn't make it to the 33rd (sigh). Oh well... at least I've learned that these searches aren't really about merit, but being at the right place at the right time. It's all about fit.

A: Faculty searches really are all about fit. I was on a search committee last year, and in the end, our candidate list really depended on what the department needed because it had to approve whichever list of interview candidates we selected. I read some amazing files (including those of some friends), but if they didn't fit, there really was nothing I could do. Ideally, a job ad states what that fit will be (desired field and theoretical focus or desired secondary area), but sometimes, the ads are so general that it's hard to know what that fit is. Anyway, I also lost out on this one, but I heard that my book was recommended for publication today. You have to learn to focus on the good news and let the rest go.

For those of you who note that they asked for letters of recommendation, you do realize that those requests are facilitated automatically by the online application?

10/28 I echo the OP. Something smells fishy.

A: I am one of the two, above, noting the rec letters, and I did see that they they were generated by the online system. But I figured that I would chime in since my requests weren't generated right away, but rather a week or so after I submitted my app. Sorry to confuse -- perhaps you are right that it was done automatically.

Can anyone tell me why my application is still "Initial Submission" status? Are they all this status at the present moment or did I screw up something along the way...?

A: That question seems best addressed to the appropriate administrators in the Penn Provost's Office: LINK

A2: So, rather than asking other readers to contacdt Penn, why didn't you do it? You do appear to know who to contact.

I wasn't one of the two who posted about the LOR request, but I will admit that when the request was sent a week after the initial submission (as opposed to within a few hours, which is usually the case with these automated systems), I secretly wondered if it meant that someone had read through my materials and asked to have a look at the LOR's. So I suppose the relevant question is, did anyone NOT receive an LOR request within a week or so of submission? (Yes, this is a somewhat grasping-at-straws question, but it's early enough in the season that any hint of interest from a search committee would be morale-boosting!)

This is just part of the system. Many of the online systems do this now. They give applicants a window of time after they've applied when they can change things, update documents, etc. (the page states that's what Initial Submission status means), then they auto-send the letter request emails.

Thanks everyone. I've just removed my LOR request number from above -- seems clear that the request was automatically generated. So much for wishful thinking! :)

NOTES:

R. McRuer 12/15/11. It was a pleasure to be able to call candidates to set up interviews, but wrenching to have to again trim the field back from the 40 dossiers. Over and over, my colleagues and I were saying, "really every single one of these candidates is immensely qualified." I have now spoken with all 13 candidates we will be meeting at MLA (and we will most likely bring 3 of those candidates to campus in early 2012). We trimmed the number of interviews back slightly not because 13 was the number of outstanding files, but because going higher than that would have had us interviewing over 20 people. My very best wishes to everyone who has shown an interest in our position.

R. McRuer/CORRECTION: to accommodate a committee member's schedule, the meeting described below will actually be the morning of December 14. Everything else is the same--it's just moved forward two days.

Robert McRuer again 12/1/11. As I suggested in my earlier note, we solicited (exactly) 40 writing samples and dossiers. A committee of four faculty members is now reading those materials very, very closely. And they are so very good--there is really an amazing amount of interesting work being generated in the field. I am learning so much reading these samples. We plan to interview (at most) 15 candidates at the Modern Language Association convention in Seattle. The committee scheduled a meeting to generate that list of 15; that meeting will be held the morning of December 16. As long as we come to consensus (and I assume that we will be able to do that), I should be making calls to schedule interviews that afternoon (ie, sometime after 1 PM EST December 16). If for some reason we don't come to consensus and my calls are delayed, I will put an update here.

-- I'm not a candidate in this field or for this position, but I admire and appreciate the transparency with which you and the department are conducting this search. I think it represents the best of what this site can offer us bewildered and exhausted candidates wading through this process. Kudos, Dr. McRuer.

Note from Robert McRuer, Deputy Chair of English and Chair of this search committee--First, I hope I'm doing this right, as academic wikis did not exist last time I was involved in a search. Second, and most important, an overview: we have received more than 150 applications for this British Romanticist position. Although the department is interested in very expansive readings of the 18th and 19th centuries, we are indeed finding ourselves needing to center on the applications that are more solidly located in the Romantic period, despite numerous strong applications on the edges of Romanticism. Overall, I am amazed at the strength of these applications; I wish that we could hire many, many of you. As of today (November 8), we are very close to asking for writing samples and dossiers, but those requests probably won't go out until tomorrow at the very earliest, and then will roll through the end of the week and early next week as our office manager processes the materials the committee gives her. We probably will ask for dossiers/writing samples from 40 candidates. As those materials reach us, we will undoubtedly need a solid month to read before the committee convenes again to choose 12-15 candidates to interview at the MLA Convention in Seattle. I know that this process is very difficult for candidates and it can be so disheartening to never hear anything after sending away your materials, so I appreciate the ways that the academic wikis are building a bit more transparency into the process and hopefully encouraging those of us on this side of the interviewing process to be careful and ethical as we navigate our ways through the search.

  • Thank you for posting such a detailed and thoughtful update! (x5)

Rejection (no interview): what an idiotic rejection email. Lame form letter attached to an email that ends with "have a terrific day!" wow!

And the email itself just says "Please see attachment" (before the "terrific day" nonsense). Classy.

I liked the Comic Sans signature *almost* as much as the suggestion that I have a terrific day. Classy AND professional, and the clear sense of time put into the attached letter makes this the best rejection of the year!

Is anyone else having a bit of confusion over their attachment requirments and the online application page for attachments? In my interpretation of the online application, it appears that they want one document that consists of a CV and references; this would be fine except that the job ad specifically asks for letters of recommendation to be attached. Does this then mean they want a document that has three letters and a CV all together? That just doesn't sound right, nor do I have access to my confidential letters of recommendation.

Have you tried contacting their HR dept. for guidance? jobs@ucmo.edu

Yes indeed. I am awaiting an answer, but thought I should reiterate my query here in case someone else had already solved the mystery.

I'm concerned that the committee is already requesting additional materials before the deadline has arrived. Are they reviewing appliations as they are received, I wonder? (11/11)

I have no idea, but I can offer commiseration. This job (by my criteria) looks like the loveliest of the job season, so I was crushed when I saw that they'd asked for extra materials 10 days before their deadline.

They're still reviewing applications and are continuing to request materials.

NOTES:

I applied for this one a few weeks ago, and recieved no confirmation of my application. I went on the D'Youville website to see if I could find an email address through which to check in. The job posting is gone.

The ad at HigherEdJobs (link above) says "Position Deleted on 10/12/2011" and that the ad is "no longer active" on that site. Not clear, though, whether this means the job has been cancelled or they're just no longer accepting applications. It does not seem to have been advertised in the MLA JIL at all. The start date was early (January 2012), so perhaps the postition has already been filled?

11/9: guess not; see interview request above.

11/10: Anyone else invited to interview?

NOTES:

The MLA Interview date from Renaissance seems strange. It's not an MLA interview since that would be in January. Any thoughts?

A: It is most definitely an MLA interview. The date is actually "12/2" referring to the day it was scheduled. The style used above is common for someone coming from the UK or a Commonwealth country, where dates are usually written with the number of the day first, then the month. See more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_date

Q: Are we sure? I have it from a fairly reliable source that the committee hadn't met until this week. I'd not give up hope yet.

A: I am definitely sure at least one interview is scheduled in Renaissance; I have been told this personally by the interviewee, and have no reason to disbelieve it. Now, given that this search was so broadly defined, I think it is possible they are deliberating further on interviewees from other periods/fields, and that MLA interviews might be scheduled on a more staggered basis than is usual. That is just a guess -- I have no inside knowledge of their process. But I would agree that hope need not be abandoned just yet ...

I heard that they received over 650 applications for this position.

Q: I have a question about the request for LOR mentioned above. LOR were part of the originally required materials -- is this another kind of request?

A: They asked for sheet with list of contacts initially, and are following up with a request for actual letters

Q: Anyone have an idea why these positions are reviewing immediately and closing at no determined date? Is this some sort of flag that they already have someone in mind? Is it just me, or is this odd.

Q: Another one about the LOR request. Did anyone else get such a request?

A: When I originally applied their online form asked for a sheet with a list of contacts. Then in late Oct I received what seemed to be a mass email from HR explaining that they were about to start reviewing apps, and if we had not inserted into our applications the Interfolio-generated email addresses for referees, that HR could assist us in doing so. I provided these email addresses to HR, and the next day Interfolio got the request and sent the letters.

NOTES:

"3 additional workload hours of research release each semester": could someone explain this for me? Does it mean 3 potential hours of research release per semester, or what?

- I wonder if it means that the job is technically 3/3 but that for the pre-tenure years, you get releases that make it, in practice, a 2/2 job.

Q. Apparently some modern Brit folks have received the nod for MLA interviews. Did anyone doing 19th century get a contact?

A. Yes, I am primarily a Victorianist and was invited to interview at MLA.
