PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE EDITING THE WIKI
Always attempt to start from the latest version of the wiki. If you see any notifications (located in the upper right hand corner), make sure that you are editing the correct page.
WHEN ADDING UPDATES OR MAKING CHANGES PLEASE DO NOT DELETE PRIOR TEXT. Simply add an update or bullet.
To edit a specific school, click the edit button next to the name of the school.
Also, I am copying the guidelines from the Humanities and Social Sciences Postdocs 2011-12 . I think we can all agree that we should strive to keep this page as easy to read as possible to maximize its usefulness.
1. Please place new positions in alphabetical order. Note that "University of X" should be alphabetized by U as first sort, and X as second sort within the U listings.
2. Please mark the title of the position using the H3 header.
3. Please include the deadline and a web link to the ad/website; PLEASE follow the format of other entries.
4. For logging comments or updates, please begin your entry with a bullet point. Each entry should have a separate line.
5. For substantive comments or updates about status, interaction, etc., please include the date at the beginning of your entry so that users can scan the info quickly for new entries.
6. Please do not post names in "Accepted Offers" until an offer has actually been accepted. Do not post a name if an offer has merely been extended, as this is not fair to the candidate's students, or to the candidate him/herself, who may need to negotiate with his/her current institution, etc. Ideally names will only be posted on the wiki by the candidate him/herself, after accepting an offer, or by a third party with some corroborating evidence (university press release, link to successful candidate's website with announcement, etc), but I know that's not always possible since people hear things through social media or word of mouth. If you want to post a name of a pianist that you know has accepted an offer, please include something about the source of the information (not just "gossip" or "the grapevine").

- Skype interview conducted last week
- Any news?
- 4 finalists on campus through February and early March
- They hired the internal, so Happy Fake Search everyone! Make sure to talk about it at MTNA this weekend.
- And in this case, the internal had a strong advantage from the beginning. They liked him and had already decided the job would go to him unless he completely bombed the interview. Sometimes the accusation of Fake Search does not reflect reality, but this time it probably does.
Dear Car X Man: I totally understand and feel your frustration. As one of the four finalists, I was disappointed, frustrated and saddened when I knew that they hired the internal candidate. But Here are my thoughts: first of all, the internal guy must be a strong candidate, too. It's also unfair to totally ignore that. Secondly, the faculty members there are wonderful musicians and good people, too. It shows how nice they are to offer the job to him and not to kick him off the ship. If there are things to blame, it's the stupid law!!! Such a waste of time and energy for some many people.

Boy this page has been dead this year. Doesn't anyone bother editing it anymore?
- I don't think anyone is leading this page anymore. There are quite a few missing jobs, such as Carnegie Mellon and Sam Houston State, and very few posts about filled positions.
- I know, where has Car X Man been this year?
Come on people? We need a new adm!!
- Rattle, rattle, thunder, clatter, boom, boom, BOOM, fellow pianists. Look, I had a lot of concerts this year and was super busy, okay? Most of this stuff is already on FB if you even have 3 pianist friends. Kent State - Andrew Le; University of Houston - Andrew Staupe; UMKC - Karen Savage and the guy from Texas Women's University whose name escapes me; Boston University - Tanya Gabrielian. The peak search cycles in terms of numbers were 2014-2017; since most of those TT positions were filled, I doubt that there will be many new openings for the next few years. It sucks, but the market truly does fluctuate.
