NOTES:

  • Kent.edu job site ad requests a "Reference Document" with the application: does anyone know what this is? It's not listed in the above description. Thx
  • I haven't looked at this app yet, but it's pretty common for jobs to ask for a document that just lists your recommenders and their contact info. Would that make sense in context?
  • I did wonder about that--and it makes sense--except there is no place to upload letters from a dossier service, which they do ask for, so I wondered if one should do the copy and paste of the letter doc's email that would prompt Interfolio to send them....?
  • I thought they wanted the application submitted 2x, once electronically (with a list of references) and again by hard copy with the actual letters. There is an Interfolio account set up for this posting.

NOTES:

  • What's up with their doing campus interviews in November? Seems improbable. Insider candidate? They're asking an awfully lot from applicants if that's the case...
  • Many smaller universities do early searches before MLA. It gives them leverage because their candidates have to accept or decline before they have offers from other schools. It keeps the university in question from having to compete as much by minimizing the potential for a given candidate to have received multiple offers (since most interviews haven't yet happened). As more schools ditch MLA and move to Skype interviews, this will probably become more common.
  • Although it's hard to believe these schools would believe the multiple-job-offer scenario is much of a risk -- considering there are about 10 jobs in this field per year for hundreds of candidates.
  • Well, it happened several years ago at a school I was VAP at. Top two candidates took jobs at other institutions and the third flamed out in the campus interview. Called in a couple more from the short-list, but ultimately the department determined it was a bust. It seems nuts, but it happened.
  • I'm also at a small, 3/3 university. The first year in my current job, I was on a search committee, and we ended up hiring our fourth choice after MLA interviews. One candidate couldn't make the campus visit and dropped out, one candidate was rude and annoying, and another candidate (the one I'd initially really wanted) crashed and burned in his department presentation during the campus visit because he couldn't manage his time (he had clearly memorized lengthy answers that didn't fit the time allotted, and when asked to adjust for time, couldn't).
  • The Jesus statement narrows the firld considerably I'd've thought.

  • Isn't this kind of a strange timeline for a junior search? Why the rush? It's not as if there are so many big jobs in the field this year.
Dear applicant:
Thank you for your application for the Assistant Professor position in British Romanticism in the department of English at NYU. The committee is currently reviewing files and will meet on Tuesday 8th November to select candidates for first-round interviews via skype. These interviews will be held two days later on Thursday 10th November between 9am and 6pm. I am writing to advise you now of what will I am afraid be a very short turn around for those selected. We will contact those shortlisted via email on the evening of Tuesday 8th; this compression means that I am afraid I must ask you all to keep Thursday 10th November in mind as the date of our skype interviews. The dates we are scheduling for campus visits for those on the final shortlist are Tuesday 22nd November, Tuesday 29th November, and Thursday 1 December.
Please feel free to contact myself or Patty Okoh-Esene with any questions about this schedule, and thank you for your continued interest in our department.
Warm wishes,
Juliet Fleming
  • ^Did everybody receive this email? I did not--just wondering what that means. Also, please post if you received an interview request!
  • ^^I didn't receive the email either. Unfortunately, I assume it may mean we are out of the running, though who knows.
  • I need to register the particular cruelty of this search. The ad requests applications from the most vulnerable people in academia, and requests that we highlight that vulnerability in the cover letter, so we compose narratives that incorporate what may be a very painful history into a trajectory that leads to this position. Then they email everyone to ask us to set aside an entire day for interviews -- no small task for many of us -- just in case we make it through the first round. They tell us that the first-round decision will be emailed the evening of election night, when those same vulnerable populations encouraged to apply are waiting to see if we can expect to retain even our current modest legal protections under the coming administration. No email comes and we are left to interpret silence as rejection as we come to terms with the fact that we will, in fact, not be safe; neither will our friends and loved ones; neither will our students. We cannot take a starter job at a rural school or in a red state and flip it for something better, because we are not safe outside cities. And the glimmer of hope that we had that this position, in a major city, at a school that seemed to value our perspectives, might offer a lifeline turns out, of course, to be fantasy. All job applications involve a level of self-delusion, the ability to cast oneself into an unlikely future in the hope that such casting might conjure such future into being. But this application, the level of investment required by the structure of the search, and the timing of the decisions, is mind-boggling in its callousness, and undermines whatever commitment to diversity the call aspired to communicate. (x3this is beautifully said)
  • Not the OP of the above: Does anyone mind if I forward this to the search chair? Otherwise they will never see it?
  • I am the OP, and please do forward -- thank you.
  • Still no word on interviews? There is clearly something strange going on with this search.
  • I believe campus interviews have been scheduled for this search and are occuring in late November.
