Almost like they decided to change the application requirements at the last minute? 12/9: To the posting above, how long after you submitted your initial materials did you get the supplemental materials request? I think that means you got to a second round. I received a request immediately after submitting my initial materials (since I was now on the list of applicants) on 11/30 and emailed the department to check; they said this was only for "some candidates" since they started reviewing on a rolling basis. All the best! 12/10: Request for zoom interviews sent out on 12/09. (12/10): the ad states that interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis; to the post above, when did you submit your application materials? 1/5: Wonder what "a rolling basis" really means here. They no longer receive applications after the deadlines and they had their first screening and interview. Could there be another interview and if so why spread that way? Many people sent their applications and requested materials by 11/30. I am not sure it really depends on when they submitted it. 1/25 - Job talk scheduled. '''Rice University (Houston, TX, USA).'''
