Deadline: Mar. 2 '''SUNY-Binghamton''' (one-year renewable; visiting position) Deadline Mar. 15 Request for phone interiview 3/25 (by phone and email) '''University of Louisiana - Monroe (18c w/some expertise in 19c)''' Deadline: Feb 27 *Phone interview scheduled (around March 10) '''University of Nevada, Reno''' (two-year visiting position) Deadline Apr. 1 '''University of Wisconsin-Madison (Asst. or Assoc.)''' :Application acknowledged by snail mail (rec'd 1/24) ::Anyone know if they already have someone in mind for this position? :::A: they have at least one person on the radar, but it's not a foregone conclusion. ::Q: anyone know anything more about this search? i.e. are they going to do phone interviews or go straight to on-campus interviews? Why did they post the ad so late? :::Allegedly have already made plans for a visit. ::::Argh! What is the source of the info, if you can say? Thanks either way. :::They definitely have someone in mind, and a visit set up. Not sure what else is happening. ::::This isn't surprising. I did my undergrad at Madison, and the campus is well known to people in the city for posting positions (faculty, administrative, etc.) as a formality while having candidates already lined up. :::::Nevertheless, an advertised search is an advertised search. Meaning, they are obligated by it to run a good-faith search. In the process, anything can happen. From what I understand, the search isn't just a formality nor is anything lined up other than a visit. Congrats to that person, though, for getting that visit. ::::::Well, they're obligated to advertise, I guess. But good faith is something else again. ::::::So long as they do bring more than 1 competent individual to campus, that is good faith. There are so many cases in which there's a candidate favored at the outset by one or more people on the committee who doesn't end up w/ an offer. Time will tell. :::::::If only they would invite more people for campus visits! ::The Chronicle ad for this position says that the deadline is March 15th. :::If memory serves, some of the fall-season jobs assembled their MLA lists on/before their stated deadlines. (ex: Angelo State called people on the day of their deadline). I don't think deadlines count for much. :Sometimes deadlines are soft deadlines, but sometimes not--be careful. Request for ws and references via email (2/2) * Does anyone have any news re: the status of this search? (2/18) * A: Just that they won't be making a decision about an offer until mid-March. * Thanks for the info. Do you happen to know if they're waiting to set up interviews until then or whether they're interviewing people now and are just waiitng until mid-March to decide? They're bringing 3 people to campus, and those interviews are already set up. * Thanks for the info. Do you happen to know the level of the invites? (i.e. beginning assistant, advanced assistant, associate?) * If they already set up 3 interviews, a month before the deadline, it would have been forthright to say: "review of apps begins immiediately." *Has anyone heard anything about this one? Do they still have the line? *Yes, they do. *Evidently an offer was made at the associate level, but it might fall through because of spousal hire issues----which means the search will probably be postponed until next year. *Is the "probably" in the previous post based on inside knowledge or pure speculation? *A: Er, it sounds to me like the person who posted the info about the asso. level offer knows what s/he is talking about, does it not?
