TENURE-TRACK / FULL-TIME Jobs
- The Bi-College Department of East Asian Studies at Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges invites applications for a full time, beginning tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Chinese literature and culture at Bryn Mawr College to begin July 1, 2013. A Ph.D. prior to the appointment start date is required. We seek candidates with excellence in teaching and scholarship. The successful candidate will teach Chinese literature and culture and will teach annually an advanced Chinese language course. The ability to teach the visual culture of China is desirable. Teaching load is 5 courses per year at the undergraduate level on a two-semester system.
- Submit as a single pdf document a cover letter, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a research statement, and a writing sample to East Asian Studies Search Committee c/o Billie Jo Ember, firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent via email. Applications received by November 30, 2012, will receive full consideration.
- Acknowledgement received by mail. (12/13)
- Campus visit invite made 12/18
- If applications were only due on 11/30, and acknowledgments weren't sent out until 12/13, it seems unlikely that a campus visit would happen within 2.5 weeks, unless there was a 'favorite' candidate already.
- Though the academic job process might lead you to believe otherwise, search committees can sometimes work very fast indeed, especially if they're at a small school competing against bigger schools with bigger budgets. If they wait until mid-late January to make decisions or hold Skype interviews they'll already have fallen behind most other schools, which decreases their chance of nabbing a good candidate. It also helps if they're well organized and working with the same goals in mind. This one definitely happened fast, but it's not impossibly anomolous and it doesn't necessarily mean that there's a favorite candidate. After all, if one believes the wiki, there's a 'favorite' candidate for each and every job that's ever been posted.
- Also, the 12/18 date seems to be the date the invite was extended, not the date of the actual visit.
- Rejection recieved. 3/1
