Request for additional materials: 28 Nov — not sure if this request went out to all applicants

--- Response to OP: If it was a request for letters of recommendation, then some over on the 19thC British page also received this request. It seems that the Interfolio application for this position was not evident to all applicants, so some were asked for letters after the deadline. Others applied through the Interfolio link and included the letters there, so did not get this request.

NOTES:



  • Did this position get filled? There's nothing on their website. Does anyone have information? 
  • What's this about being sent in error? (Request for additional materials 11 Dec.)?
  • I'm curious about being sent in error too. I was able to upload my letters via Interfolio per the instructions in the email.
  • I was sent a request for the letter dossier but no follow-up email. (x3) When did your follow-up email arrive?
  • I went into the Interfolio application and was able to upload letters of recommendation under "additional documents." I think the "additional documents" might have been added after I received the email requesting the letter dossier. 
  • Yes, I asked for clarification and that's what we are supposed to do. Don't know anything about a "sent in error." So far everything seems fine. 
  • When I wrote “sent in error” I was referring to the erroneous instructions to wait for another email. Sorry for any confusing (and potentially terrifying) wording. 
  • Ha! No worries. 
  • I tried to add my letters to the "additional documents" section after reading these notes, but I don't have the option to edit the application, only to review it. I thought they wanted LORs by 12/16?
  • REQUEST FOR SKYPE INTERVIEW (12/19)
  • Very similar search was run a couple of years ago; see Theory 2017. Did that earlier search fail? 
  • My understanding is that they offered the job to someone who declined it and the follow-up candidate didn't work out either. Not entirely sure though. i
  • Any word yet on campus interviews?
