A ray of sunshine

Amid the doom and gloom of state budget cuts and fearmongering about (or perhaps just fearing) the look of the market in the fall, ODU has put out a TT ad looking to scoop people up before everything really gets going (due 9/15). Feels good to see it.

And hey, VA's for lovers so all you budding epistemologists out there hop to it.

Updated: Worth noting, I just saw the TT Southern Miss job for continental philosophers.

Your links are to dead ends. And they're to the Chronicle website, and after looking through that website, I can't find any jobs that fit your description. Nor are there any in the JFP.

Didn't ODU have a similar ad last year (and/or the year before)?

This is merely conjecture, but it seems to me that cases of searches that go unfilled and then get repeated the following year is on the rise. If this is true, I wonder what the explanation for this is exactly. Thoughts?

Does anyone know why schools would tend to hire for the Spring? It seems peculiar to me...aren't they shooting themselves in the foot by not getting the largest (/best?) pool of applicants?

ODU hired successfuly last year in phil. of mind. We have not advertised an epistemology position in the 10 years in which I've been here. The epistemology position starts in Fall 2010. Other questions can be directed to Prof. Pearson as per the ad. Cheers.
