Word on the street Edit

  • Suspicious: Does anybody know if the U. of Chicago job is for real? They have a postdoc right now who  does pretty much exactly what they are requesting in their job description. What's the word on the street?
  • A: I think you answered your own question. Also interesting that the deadline is so early - the day before the MLA list comes out (when most people start looking). Alas, that is how these things sometimes go, and jobs are so hard to come by that it is hard to begrudge any postdoc the possibility of their position turning into a job, though Chicago certainly could have been a little more discreet in their designs. Also good to keep in mind that things sometimes don't shake out as planned - departmental politics and other factors can intervene, so who knows what will happen. 
  • A:  I absolutely agree with you. It is not really about begrudging the postdoc. But targeted searches prevent applicants from getting their hopes up and from going through the whole application process. Very strange indeed!
  • A: I cannot speak for U. of Chicago, but I've been in a U that has had to conduct searches ahead of the regular calendar due to limited personnel available to conduct the search during the fall semester.  Job postings appear in Inside Higher Ed and Chronicle year round, and the MLA should seriously consider doing the same, or else post only searches conducted through their own conference.

General Discussion, Questions, and Inquiries Edit

  • "Miami University will not sponsor for H1B work authorization for the 2017-18 year." WTF?!! A1: Thank the executive order that eliminated the prime that made the H1B processing more expeditious for employers nationwide. They will employ you under J1 though.
  • Wasn't the MLA Job List supposed to be released yesterday (Sept 11)? The jobs that are posted now have been there for a while. 
  • List below was just updated with 9/11 MLA JIL jobs ... there were ~half dozen new jobs in the MLA List. Expect more to be added on Fri and through Sept.... If you don't see a position here, please feel free to add it. (9/12)
  • Thanks! I'm just surprised to only see 50 openings this year. So depressing already. LOL?
