Discussion[edit | edit source]

  1. Re: Kalamazoo C.: just FYI: https://www.thekzooindex.com/german-faculty-denied-tenure-students-and-alumni-voice-concerns/. This is not here to discourage or encourage anybody either way, but these are the circumstances under which the position is available.
    • Re: Kalamazoo C: FYI: The internal candidate is the department co-chair's partner. Not to discourage or encourage anybody either way.
    • Update: the supposed internal candidate did not receive this position.
  2. U of Puget Sound position: inside candidate
    • Same can be said for many of the others as well
    • Having been the inside candidate somewhere last year, I can tell you that I was still not the first choice for the new hire.
    • Same here. Definitely don't assume the inside candidate has the job. Now, is it ethical for departments to hire people for visiting positions and then not into the TT job? That's another question. But that isn't on us as candidates. Apply for everything. You never know.
    • Senior academic and frequent search committee member here. Can only second what previous posters have said. This trend for anonymous Wiki warnings about "OMG, inside candidate!" is stupid and harmful. Yes, many hiring institutions will already have a visiting person. No, that doesn't mean the person is a lock for a job, or even necessarily that they have an advantage over anybody else. New lines don't fall from the sky, especially not in this economy. They usually only become available when a current faculty member retires/leaves, and that doesn't always happen on a predictable schedule. If it's too late to run a full-blown search for the following year, institutions are forced to hire a visitor to cover the gap. Visiting searches draw FAR fewer applicants than TT or long-term searches do and oftentimes are governed by different criteria than long-term searches (for example: can you cover exactly those courses we were already forced to put on the books for next year?). Do you really think a university is not going to conduct a rigorous and impartial search the following year, simply because the current visitor was one of the lucky few to apply the prior year and now it would be "unethical" not to employ them beyond the bounds of the original contract?
      • Yes, we all know that, but it would be nice if senior faculty (many of whom would not at all be competitve in the current job market) would acknowledge that this system of thankless one-year positions and the expectation that people have the ability to uproot their lives every year for several years, only to be passed over for a shiny new Ivy league grad (don't even get me started on the blatant classism of academia), is pretty darn "stupid and harmful." 
      • I fully second the above. Also, to the "senior academic:" thank you for your insight, but there is a way to communicate what you did in a more productive manner. There is really no need for the lecturing and partially bitter/aggressive tone you employ in your response. This Wiki page is there to support those who have been and continue to be on the job market - we do our best to be highly aware of all situations (unpredictable schedules, budgets, Dean/Provost/President politics re: budgets, department politics, the alignment of stars needed for a new TT line to come in, etc.) and do understand that there are colleges/universities who conduct rigorous and impartial searches. However, we have also seen our fair share of "blatant classicm" and "choosing the internal candidate although internal candidate's research credentials and teaching are weak" first-hand. 
      • It might also be worth adding that not all inside candidates are the same. If someone was hired this May, and the institution is now doing a search for a sort of similar sounding position, all bets are off. If someone was hired several years ago, and the search is weirdly specific in its wording, it really might be worth considering whether you want to take the time to apply. In this sense, it is certainly helpful when we use the wiki to share knowledge of inside candidates. We are all competent enough to know how to weight that in our decisions of whether to apply. Similarly, the ethics depend on timeline. The responsibility a department has to someone hired in May is different than to someone hired in January. Unfortunately, some departments violate MLA guidelines by hiring short term people on a tenure-track search timeline. If such a decision is made, those departments absolutely have an ethical responsibity towards those candidates. Senior faculty should not act as if they can do nothing but play the hand they've been dealt. We all know there are all kinds of constraints, but there are also possibilities, even risky ones, for resistance.
  3. Just as a reminder: if the institution features the name of the state where the institution is located, the addition of the state abbreviations next to the institution's name is redundant and unnecessary, which is why it is typically removed.
    • Before adding a job, please also check to see if it is already posted in one of the sections.
  4. Anyone know if the NYU position is a replacement for Avital Ronell?
    • No it is not. 
  5. Please note: "WHEATON COLLEGE is an evangelical Protestant Christian liberal arts college whose faculty and staff affirm a Statement of Faith and adhere to lifestyle expectations of the Wheaton College Community Covenant."
    • Here's a link: https://www.wheaton.edu/about-wheaton/community-covenant/  If you're wondering whether you could work at this institution, just take a glance. Many colleges are religiously affiliated, and what that means varies tremendously. There are institutions with similarly worded requirements that ultimately just say something vague about faculty leading a life "open to the spiritual". This case is very different, but you can't know that without doing a little more than noting what is plainly written in the job ad.
    • Who cares. Every other job requires you to be feminist and pro-LGBT, are you that upset by a single exception?
    • I don't think whoever posted this statement expressed any sort of judgment or that they were upset about it. It seems they were just making it known so that potential applicants can accurately judge whether they would be a good fit for this particular institution because a requirement like this is the exception. Of course, we have every right to be upset. This institution's religious views are explicitly anti-LGTBQ+. As a private institution, this is not illegal, but absolutely immoral and goes against everything higher education stands for. I find the tone of the previous reply deeply offensive and aggressive.
    • I am offended by your desire to outlaw moralities that differ from your own. I find it rather aggressive, dare I say violent. Needless to say, I hope you'll be boycotting this application.
    • To the person directly above this comment: The previous commenter was not advocating to outlaw moralities different from their own. They simply offered up their own view/moral compass, specifically writing that (in their opinion) "the institution's religious views are...absolutely immoral" and that they go "against everything higher education stands for." Nowhere did they write that Wheaton's approach should be outlawed. Also, every "other job" does NOT REQUIRE you to "be feminist and pro-LGBTQ+" - when one has to write a DIVERSITY statement, one writes about an overall philosophy that includes everyone (including working with conservative/orthodox Jewish students, for example, if that is the case for someone). The fact that there is more emphasis on feminism, LGBTQ+, African Americans, etc. is because certain groups have experienced and continue to experience unbelievable hardship.
    • The respondent who posted #2 and #4 is being needlessly rude and aggressive. But it is also the case that there's no need to single out Wheaton or similar schools with special explanations like the one posted. It's the applicant's job to know the schools they're applying to, and the wide range of what a religious affiliation might mean should be well known to anyone on the market. Wheaton doesn't hide its commitments. The initial warning does actually suggest its writer holds some problematic views about religious/evangelical schools. Is a department home to a serial harasser? In that case (which we've seen before), then sure, a tip can be useful here, since that's not readily apparent information. But we don't need a special note to let us know that Wheaton is serious about its religious mission.
  6. Has anyone heard anything from/in regards to the Emory TT position? Last year they exhibited similar radio silence so I'm wondering if it's the same this time around.
    • I haven't heard anything, either. It says in the posting that they plan to hold first-round interviews in the second week of December, so I imagine they will extend invitations for interviews within the next week.
  7. Anyone out there heard anything from Georgia Tech post-interview? I was under the impression that they'd contact us a couple weeks after Thanksgiving or so. Perhaps not hearing back yet re: a campus visit is a bad sign and I need to give up hope of anything materializing from the agony that was the Fall 2019 application season. Thanks.
    • Also had a virtual interview and heard nothing. I assume no news is bad news. They actually told me they would be reaching out BEFORE Thanksgiving (I guess only to the successful candidates, though they sort of made it sound like they would notify everyone?). 
    • Thank you for letting me know, and best of luck with the job search. I hope they found the candidate they were looking for. Wishing you much happiness and success in 2020! 
    • Yes, the on-campus interviews are scheduled. I am not among the finalists, but I know two people who are.  
  8. Has anyone heard anything about the UCLA position? No one in any language seems to know anything about it. Thanks!
    • Nothing here, but it's kind of like last year when there also seemed to be barely any information about the two positions for the same program.
  9. Does anyone know if the campus visit request from U of Arizona is real? 1/11 seems strangely early and contradictory to an email I received from them that same day. Thanks for sharing any information you might have to gauge at what stage they are.
    • I know for a fact they have been scheduling campus interviews over the past few days and the 1/11 date is real. I'm not sure if you heard from them in the meantime, but in either case: wishing you the best of luck. 
  10. Has anyone heard anything about Iowa State? They held Zoom/first-round interviews in early December but I haven't heard anything since then. Thank you to whomever knows/is willing to share information.
    • I updated the status. Campus visits were last and this week.
    • Thank you!
  11. Hallo! Has anyone heard anything on the Oklahoma or Salzburg positions. Much appreciated! Danke!
  12. Hello all, I am wondering if anyone here has more information about when the search at Stanford might be continued. I see that an email was sent out, presumably to someone who had already applied with this information. Any information you give would be of great benefit. Many thanks again - best wishes.
  • The email only said that the search is postponed (due to the coronavirus situation and hiring freezes) but that applications will stay on file and they will reach out to candidates when the situation is resolved. No new due date or any other specifications were given. I will update the information here as soon as I hear anything else. 

13. Tried to update, then undo update under NTT listings. Not sure how to clean up. SORRY! -- Luddite

14. I just moved the Iowa State lecturer position to term-limited positions and then back to renewable. Sorry about the confusion. Can't help but wonder how anyone is supposed to teach seven (7!) courses part-time.

15. The Iowa State position is 6 courses. It is designated as "part-time" by the university, but is a 3-3 load with full benefits. (Someone with knowledge about this position)

  • Thanks for claryfying! The job posting says "The teaching duties include six courses in beginning language and culture and an advanced course in language and culture", though, which would be seven courses.
  • Working to fix this!
  • Okay, the language has been updated: "The Department of World Languages and Cultures at Iowa State University is seeking a Lecturer in German to teach introductory and intermediate courses in language, literature, and culture. The teaching duties include six courses: in beginning language and culture and advanced courses in language and culture. This position will also have the opportunity to participate fully in the scholarly and professional life of the department. The successful candidate will have the ability to communicate effectively in English with students, faculty, and staff."
  • Great, thank you!
  • No problem. Also, the due date is now 5/22/20
