  • Note that some job listings (especially on NCA's site) may expire after a certain number of days; this does NOT necessarily mean the job was canceled or filled. Be sure to save all listings you're interested in!

  • Not to mention the fact that grads of CNU or comparable institutions would not qualify to work at CNU!
  • Excellent point!!
  • (11-2-2010): A highly ranked degree might factor into employment consideration, but take a look at the faculty profile page: http://www.cnu.edu/communications/profiles/index.asp. Not exactly a collection of Ivy leaguers or top notch talent, at least judging by the same standards being imposed for hiring new faculty. I've also known people who have interviewed for CNU, one was even hired, and the school will take, at least in terms of the quality of applicants made available, whatever they can get. The article might be disturbing to some, but it's basically a marketing strategy to make CNU seem more important, prestigious, etc., than it actually is.

Area: Rhetorical Theory and Criticism, and can work with graduate students in interdisciplinary "Communication, Rhetoric, & Digital Media" program

Notes:

  • heard rumor looking for a candidate of color.
  • are they only looking for candidates of color? can they do this? (12/5) - yes, they can legally do it if it is explicitly stated in the job call and/or the hire is part of an official recruitment effort of minority faculty, etc.
  • I think if they were ONLY looking for candidates of color they would have said so (see UMN job/postdoc, for instance).
  • The school is looking for someone to contribute to a narrow area (Digital Rhetoric), so it's unlikely that they can seek only a "candidate of color."
  • perhaps a candidate of color who also specializes in digital rhetoric will have an advantage over others?
  • probably. It seems like most job calls have something about especially encouraging members of underrepresented groups to apply. My feeling on this is that improving faculty diversity is desirable everywhere.
  • Colleague has a phone interview (12/12)

Rank: TT Assistant or Associate Prof in Dept of Comm Studies

Area: Intercultural and Global Communication

Notes:

  • A person in this department told me that there is an extreme level of conflict between faculty members here. Just something to be prepared for. - I guess this comment is informative, but I also want to mention that many departments have conflict/drama among faculty. So, be prepared for that anywhere.- True, of course all departments have conflict/drama. The conflict in this dept is supposed to be extreme, though, and that's helpful to know if anyone interviews with them.
  • I have also heard this from a person who wasin this dept until recently. This person specifically said "I know all departments have their probems, but I have never seen anything like this before" and went into some detail that was pretty outrageous. I do agree that this is good information to have, for anyone who is interviewing with them.

  • I'm somewhat baffled by how they're conducting the search. I got the perception from meeting with them at the job fair that they want a very particular type of candidate and that it should have been obvious from my CV that I didn't fit that "type." Why bother screening applicants who clearly aren't a good fit?

Pepperdine University

POSITION 1

Link: Pepperdine HR website- http://seaver.pepperdine.edu/about/employment/faculty.htm#communication

Deadline: 1 November 2010

Rank: TT Assistant Prof

Area: Interpersonal, Organizational, Intercultural

  • Notes: The job announcement states that "The successful candidate will have a commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate level, a proven research track record, and will be actively involved in a Christian faith community." Question: Is it legal to require someone to be an active Christian to be a "successful candidate" for a job?
  • Yes, if it's a private university, then religious requirements of faculty are legal. I was told by a senior faculty member that, if I was unclear about what this meant, to e-mail search chairs asking them to explain further what "actively involved" entailed. For some Christian schools you have to sign a faith pledge of sorts, while for others you don't, etc.
  • I've heard that this means that you have to sign an agreement that you will instill Christian beliefs about the origin of humanity - i.e. evolution.
  • Do you mean creationism? How, exactly, would one teach creationism in a comm job?
  • If your understanding of Christianity is limited to creationism you're probably not right for this job.
  • My personal understanding of Christianity is by no means limited to creationism. I was simply looking for clarification of a statement made by above poster: '"I've heard that this means that you have to sign an agreement that you will instill Christian beliefs about the origin of humanity - i.e. evolution." This sentence makes no sense to me; I was wondering if they meant to say creationism instead of evolution.
  • It is not uncommon for a pledge signature. Many state schools require a pledge to uphold the state's constitution. It doesn't mean much. If you aren't right for the job, they will find reasons other than your signature on an oath.
  • This position specifically asks for "A statement indicating how the candidate will support the Christian mission of the University (http://seaver.pepperdine.edu/about/mission/)" (which is why I'm personally not applying).

Deadline: 15 October 2010

Rank: 2 TT Assistant Professors

Areas: health, media, culture/intercultural/international, political

Notes:

  • Had 400 applications. Doing phone interviews to narrow down short-list.
  • Did the above poster get such an interview?
  • A colleague received a phone call 10/24 (Sunday, seriously?) evening. I guess PSU is trying to be as proactive as possible, which is a good thing. Always better to be informed than not!
  • They narrowed the 400 aps down to about 20. They already did first round phone interviews last week.
  • This position requires the job recipient to position themselves to secure external funding. Actual acquisition is probably not required for tenure, but a solid application probably is.
    • That is not true, and I am thinking you are the one who erased the discussion. I know someone who got an offer in this department that required external funding to gain tenure. I am sure a solid application is necessary, but so is external funding. DON'T ERASE CONVERSATIONS AGAIN.
  • Please note that the person who wrote the above bullet point curiously erased two comments and edited at least two others which criticized the outside funding requirement. And the lame dig about a "solid application" was really not necessary. As this was very obviously the work of a PSU SC member, I'm now counting my blessings not to have been on its short list. Unbelievable.
    • I agree. It is unbelievable. If you don't want to read things, don't read them. This wiki site is not for people to police and erase. These are important issues to talk about.
    • I also agree with people protesting the erasure of comments. Search committees obviously have a lot of power during this difficult job market - making snarky comments about "solid applications" is not very gracious. The person who erased criticisms about requiring applicants to commit to securing external funding is not willing to accept the fact that applicants have the right to make note of (and critique) the hoops applicants are made to jump through to get a job.
  • Received rejection mass email 11/23. (x7)
  • Has anyone been invited for on-campus interviews?
    • Not sure. I did not apply for the job, but someone I know who did said the rejection letter was along the lines of "you were not selected as a finalist." (x3)
    • yes I know someone who was invited for oncampus interviews. they pay something like $40K, I think I'm okay with the mass rejection email I got.
    • according to a reliable source, on-campus visits have been scheduled for both positions, and are currently underway (12/5)

Deadline: will begin reviewing December 5, 2010

Rank: TT Assistant Professor

Area: Rhetorical Studies

Notes: This is a very fast turn around, and apparently they will start reviewing on a Sunday?

  • Agreed, this seems a bit odd. They do have several lecturers and visitors in the department so it may be an internal hire. On the other hand, they are only requesting a small number of materials (letter, CV, recommendations), so it may be a bit more feasible to get it done in a timely manner.
  • I wouldn't worry about an internal hire, it's my impression they were actively recruiting at NCA. I suspect they are hoping to move ahead early in the spring semester, and maybe worried about competing with other R1 rhetoric positions for the best candidates.

ONLY 1 POSITION AVAILABLE!!!

Deadline: 15 November 2010

Rank: Asst TT

Notes:

  • received request for reference letters 11/12 (X8). Was told that they have made a long/short list, like position below. Anyone know how many are on it?
  • Has anyone who has applied specifically to "position 1" received requests for additional publications and/or notification of the search being narrowed to a short/short list?
  • Requested additional publications, said I was on the short/short list 11/22.
  • Received rejection letter in the mail (12/7) (x8)
  • Also, I had emailed the chair Chandra Mukerjee -- it's ONE position that they are filling in either one of the areas. Poorly written description. (Well, pardon a non-academic moment, but that just sucks.) That's really lame and confusing. To me, it sounds like departmental/school politics-like they had to write the position two ways to satisfy various' individuals particular desires and demands.
  • received request for reference letters (11/12) (X5)
  • anyone have a sense of how long their semi-short list is (i.e. those who've been contacted for reference letters)?
  • The e-mail literally said "long/short list of applicants." I'm not quite sure what that even means.
  • In reference to the long/short list question above...I received the same email from the search committee chair and did a bit of searching around--seems a long/short list can be anywhere from 10 to 20 candidates.
  • Is there anyone who was contacted for an interview etc., not for reference letters?
  • I believe that positions 1 & 2 are the same -- there's one position with two possible ways that it will be filled. (The ad doesn't say that there are two positions.)
  • Ah, I hadn't considered that the advertisement was for only one position. One could certainly read it both ways. The only reason I am inclined to think there may be two positions is because the two fields are so dramatically different: the former specifies digital media with preference for Asian American studies scholars; the latter is more open-ended. After all, it seems like overkill to call for an Asian American digital media scholar on the one hand and then call for an open-ended race scholar when the former could address the latter.
  • Received request for additional publications from department chair (11/22) (X3). Do you happen to know if this request indicates a second level of long/short list, or is it unrelated? Were phone interviews mentioned in the request email? Yes, request was accompanied by notice of short/short list. Interviews not mentioned in request.
  • Did those of you notified of the short/short list apply to position one, position two, or both/either? I was notified of short list and only applied for position two. I only applied for consideration for the second position (if, in fact, it is a second position).
  • I applied for both, was on the long/short list, and received a rejection letter today (12/4)
  • There is only ONE position available!!! They are looking for someone for digital/networked media and/or race/ethnicity. (12/8) I wonder how much politics was involved in the writing and posting of these job ads. Why did they have to list two positions, and write the calls in a way that made it ambiguous as to whether there were one or two jobs??? Would have been simple enough to collapse 'the two postings into one description.
  • I interview in UC-San diego a few yrs back--Communication. Felt very badly treated--they did not even have a place/space for the candidate to wait in, between meetings etc...Nor did they take candidate to visit Dean. Faculty were unfriendly and uppity ....Don't know about other departments but from what I have heard, UC-Sd is not very collegial
  • I also interviewed there a few years ago and had the opposite experience. It's a long interview process, 1-on-1 interviews with individual faculty instead of group interviews, which makes for a long couple of days. Most of the faculty I met with were friendly, they all come from different disciplines so I'm sure there are internal factions. Grad students were intense, clearly play a role in dept business. I left the visit exhausted but also feeling like they'd read my work and had much to say about it. I also met with some faculty from other depts, got the feeling it was a very interdisciplinary place.
  • Any updates about campus visits? (12/12)

  • The individual offered the job declined. All applicants from last year were given an option to passively renew their application via email correspondence if they wanted to be considered again.
  • Good link, but are you sure this is accurate? If the deadline was 10/8, that's quite a quick turnaround to do all phone interviews and such by 10/19. ----I'm not sure about UGA's process, but in my experience on the job market last year, several R-1 universities did not do phone/NCA interviews and instead went straight to on-campus invites. I wonder if this is the case because qualifications for an R-1 position are generally a lot more narrow, such as the need for the candidate to have top pubs and a research specialty. Personally, coming from an R-1 myself I haven't heard of this. We always do NCA or phone interviews, and the other R-1 that I know is already doing on-campus interviews in the next few weeks did a round of phone interviews too. But, alas, the proof is in the pudding. Congrats to those interviewing at UGA, and best of luck as the process moves forward!
  • I heard from someone at UGA that the above link is not updated because campus invites have NOT been extended (10/21/10).
  • Also wanted to note from my experience (both hiring and being interviewed) that places don't always do phone interviews/conference interviews -- a lot of places go straight to on campus interviews but I would agree that it would be really unlikely that anything would happen in 11 days in a job search in academia -- would that it did so we could all get on with our lives.
  • unconfirmed rumor that invitations were extended for campus visits in early December (11/8). Anybody willing to confirm this?
  • Yes, three candidates have been invited for on-campus interviews in early Dec.

University of Iowa

Link: NCA

Deadline: 1 December, 2010

Rank: TT Assistant Professor

Area: Communication and/or Policy: Water Sustainability and Water-Related Issues

Notes: Search is being conducted jointly by 3 units within the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences: Communication Studies, Political Science, and Journalism & Mass Communication. Any faculty member hired will be appointed in one or more of these units, and must have a PhD by time of appointment.

  • - random comment: does anyone else think that this call is strange? Of course water-related issues are important environmental concerns, but I'm surprised that this is already an "area of research." Seems as if there will be few candidates who fit this call.
    • Position was created through a specific state grant to add a faculty member to the university who researches water issues. This was in response to the severe flooding that hit the area a few years ago.
    • Also, as an Iowa grad, I think it's a creative way for the university to actually secure faculty lines (which is difficult at the UI these days) by combining searches that draw upon the strengths in different departments and the needs of a state whose economy is largely agricultural. These are three historically strong departments, too. So, from a UI perspective, it's not that strange.

Notes: Have visiting professors already working there. Do not apply to waste time - but you can if you have time. I actually believe that they have more than one position and they are slated to be at NCA job fair...so I don't think this is an internal hire. Good luck then! I had a job interview last year there and they hired another visiting professors. the same job (for 2 visiting professors) was posted on last year! They just changed the search chair.

11/12 - Email rejection letter stating I was not a finalist. (x4)

I did an NCA interview. There were five time slots. Since then they have contacted my references.

Good luck to everybody with their search!
