SPRING 2019 JOBS[edit | edit source]
TENURE-TRACK FALL 2019[edit | edit source]
- Looks like a rigged search. I was notified 3 weeks before the application deadline that I wasn't selected for the job. (10/23)
- [11/9] It is not, I was invited for a skype interview in late October. It seems like they read applications as they come in as I was invited shortly after sending in my file.
- Invited for a Skype interview. Good luck to everyone.
- (Dec. 13) Any news post-Skype interviews? Nothing here since skype interview in late October.
- (Dec. 13) Nope, no post-Skype interview news on my side.
- Preliminary online interviews scheduled for Nov. 8-9. (10/31)
- Informed that shortlisting will be done by end November; campus visits in January. (11/8)
- Invited to campus visit, second week of January (11/21)
- Rejection email, 2 months after campus visit. (3/1)
- (12/4) Invited for Skype interview
- (2/7) After two denials from HR, search committee chair finally admitted that I was not chosen for interview. Total fiasco.
- ^Wait, they refused to tell you whether or not you were chosen for an interview? Do you think it was lack of communication between HR and the SC, or just not a very professional search? Might be a blessing in disguise...
- HR twice told me not to worry, my candidacy was still active, the dept will contact you, don't contact them. I did contact them and the SC chair said they were now intervieweing finalists and I'm not among them (duh); accompanied with what seemed to be a sincere apology for "the unwieldiness of the system." So I think, yes, lack of communication probably.

Had a skype interview on Dec 7. (Dec 17)
- [8 Nov] Invited for Skype interview. Good luck to everyone.
- (29 Nov.) Any news about campus visits for anyone?
- any news? got a skype interview a month ago, haven't heard back yet! (dec 13); same, interviewed in early November and haven't heard a thing since.
- campus visits invited
- [12 Nov] Invitation to interview.
- [8 Feb] Any news about this? I see someone was invited to interview in Nov; my application status is still "under review by department." I sent a query to HR, who in turn referred me to the SC chair. Awaiting their reply.
- [8 Feb, me again] Chair says: "Our job postings remain open until a position is filled. Once that has happened, applicants are notified by email." Sounds like legalese for "we have someone, but we can't tell you yet until they accept our offer."
- [30 Apr] And... rejection email arrives.
