Wow. That's some wish list. They want to hire you for one year, so they're not looking for someone who is TT. But they also want you to have PhD in hand and a minimum five years of full-time teaching experience. That's far more than most TT jobs require. So, ABDs and many freshly minted PhDs need not apply for this 4/4 delight in scenic Denton, Texas. (To be fair, I've never been to Denton. It might be really nice.) It kinda goes against the conventional wisdom that it's not an asset to be a serial VAP. You'd almost have to be one for this job. (I like the part about "earned PhD" too -- none of those Cracker Jack PhDs they give away, Bub!)
