A NEWER permanent thread to share job info (5/27/16)

A lot of people in the comments seem interested in having space to discuss or request information about specific jobs. If providing information and if possible, please provide the source of your information.
Since you all seem to find it useful, here's our third permanent thread for this. (Big ups to our moderators!)
In the future, after this isn't at the top of the page, you can find this thread in the sidebar. Here's a picture, with the place to find this thread in the future.

So does anyone have a sense of whether it is now standard for hiring departments to go into radio silence after fly outs? I thought the standard was to send an email saying roughly "We enjoyed meeting you and getting to interview you. We have made an offer to another candidate, and/but will/will not be in touch again if they reject that offer. Good luck with your job search." But I haven't heard a peep from any of the places I had fly outs, and it's been 3+ weeks since the final fly out scheduled in every case.

I negotiated a TT offer in late 2015 for a spring 2016 start. I accepted the salary because the union already negotiated that. (In fact, between the time I was hired and the time I started, the union negotiated a 10% increase.) I asked for spousal hiring and moving expenses, but only got the moving. It's a community college district (and union), so no spousal hire. I'm happy.

8:05: My first market year I had one on-campus and they were in touch (but, the circumstances were such that they knew that I would know when they made an offer). My second year, I had five on-campuses (2 in the US), and I only received communication from the two (not in the US) that made me offers. My third year, I had one on-campus and I have not heard anything yet; it's not updated on the blog, so here I wait.

4:09 Wait, you had 5 on-campus interviews, received 2 offers, but you're still on the market? What?

Has anyone heard anything about the Wash U St. Louis PNP postdoc? I haven't seen it show up on the wiki or in any of the blogs.

Other mystery searches that are still on my list (but which I'm assuming have already made decisions) include: Radford, Cincinnati-Blue Ash, and CSU Fresno. Anyone news out there?

6:55: There are lots of people who get sub-optimal jobs that continue to be on the market, for various reasons. It is yet another reason that the market sucks.

I did an on-campus interview for a job that had already been offered to another candidate. I didn't find this out until after my interview. They were just interviewing me in case the other person declined the offer. So, apparently that's now a thing.

@ 4:49. Ugh. I can think of basically nothing worse than getting your hopes that high up and then finding out you never really had a chance.

I got a first round invitation for a phone interview with Radford yesterday.

Anonymous said...

at 4:49 - that's awful! I must ask: how did you find out? did they tell you?

Has anyone heard from Union College? Thanks!

@8:55 Well, I had a search committee chair indicate I'd get the job if I had sex with him, so there's that.

@ 6:08. I stand corrected. That is fucked.

@4:49 and @6:08: I think you should report your experiences to the APA. The actions of the SCs that you describe are violations of the standards of professional conduct.

@4:30, 6:08 here. Why? And, do you imagine that I wouldn't have noticed that? I didn't get a job this year either, so, see many of you next year. Good luck all.

I generally don't care about PFOs, and I especially don't understand why people pick apart every word and complain about insincerity etc. But at this point in the market, I really wish hiring departments wouldn't bother sending anything at all. Especially if they don't even include *some* interesting piece of information, like the number of applicants. I don't need to hear that I'm no longer being considered for a job I applied for on Nov. 1. I know. If anything it just gets my hopes up momentarily that I made a cut for a postdoc or visiting position. I actually just had a department send me an affirmative action survey, when I know they're far into their process and I've obviously been eliminated.

8:05 -- it is still common for SCs to say nothing until they have a signed contract from their hire. Three weeks is still within the range of possibility -- at many (all?) schools, the final decision isn't up to the SC or the dept chair. Deans and others up the food chain also have to approve the hire, which can take time. In addition, it is standard to give a candidate two weeks to respond to an offer. So after three weeks, I would not assume you're toast.
I've only once ever been told that I was the second choice, and could get an offer if the first choice declined. But I know of other people who have been told that as well, so it happens.

Has anyone heard anything about the WUSTL post-doc? I've heard nothing, and I'm pretty sure they sent out PFO's in early Feb. last year.

Anonymous said...

nope

Anonymous said...

10:08 - Do you mean the "modelling interdisciplinary inquiry" WUSTL postdoc? If so, I got my rejection a few weeks ago (3-4, IIRC). They said it was late because I'd made the long list, though not the short.
