A thread on VAPs has been requested. I've never had one. Don't think I ever applied for one. But, you know, I live to serve, dear readers. And 'tis the season for VAP applications.
I would think, but can't verify, that VAPs have gotten pretty competitive, just like TTs and post-docs. And I would think that the dossier is more or less the same as it would be for any other teaching-oriented job. How does the interview process differ? How does the timing differ?
So, questions, comments, advice on VAPs, VAP-seekers, VAP-applying, etc.? Rack 'em up.
