During

PFO Pitt Ancient

Philonous

Does anyone know whether it is very common to have a "waiting list" for campus visits? And how long could it take to know whether one will get an invitation for a campus visit? And how many candidates are normally put in a "waiting list"? This is my first time on the American job market. Thanks!

Shut Out in Slow Motion

Anon, is the Berea job you're referring to the one at Baldwin Wallace?

anon

PFO Pitt Ancient.

anon

Shut Out In Slow Motion, I'm referring to the Berea job in Kentucky. Hope that helps!

Waiting

Did anyone out there who made it to the interview phase with Memphis hear anything back yet? I was told we'd hear back in 2 weeks. It has now been 4, though.

Anon

Any news on Pitt HPS?

Anon

Rejection from Brown Political Theory postdoc.

anon

Pitt HPS has long-listed but will only interview fly-outs.

Another Anon

Anon, thanks for the update on Pitt HPS. Have the candidates on the long list been notified or will only the interviewees be contacted?

Job seeker

Philonous, I'm afraid I wouldn't get too hopeful. My university, for instance, has us put all of the first round interview candidates who would be competent hires (so, usually basically all of them) on the waiting list, because we can't hire anyone who has been taken off of it. I don't think that we've ever had to invite a second round of fly outs, though. (And if we did, it would be after all of the first set of fly outs had either visited and been judged unhirable or visited, been offered the job, and turned them down in sequence. So, months.) Sorry :-/

anon

@Another Anon, candidates on the long list have been identified.

ANON

Anon PHD: I applied to Lehman and still haven't heard anything.

Anon

@Arsene: the Amherst College position is still open (the PhilJobs appointment posts regarding the VAP is incorrect and is just meant to refer to the visiting position for 2018-19).

anon

Arsene: P.S. I was assuming you were referring to the Amherst College position, but my apologies if you meant the UMass Amherst job.

anon

@dlewis: this psychology jobs wiki -- http://psychjobsearch.wikidot.com/ -- says campus visits to Merced for their cog sci positions listed on PhilJobs have been scheduled

paranoid

I have a question: say that X job has sent out interview requests according to the blogs on Wednesday. Then, I get an interview request from X job two days later on Friday. Does this mean I was a backup? Or could they have sent out the interview requests in stages?

I know this is really speculative and probably unhelpful, but any thoughts on this matter is appreciated.

anonymous

Paranoid: don't worry about it! That happened to one of my students in a recent search that I happened to have inside info on, and it was just that the search chair had staggered the requests (so, they were scheduling each interview before contacting the next person). It could be this and one of the first people posted it on the wiki. Or it could be someone from the search committee who posted, but they hadn't actually contacted anyone yet. It could be anything. (But more importantly prudentially you shouldn't worry about this because there is no point even if you are a backup, I know that part is easier said than done...)

hopingforBoston fool

I hate to add another one of these questions...but has anyone heard of BC reaching out to people yet?

Anon

“has anyone heard of BC reaching out to people yet?”

I saw someone on fb say they were contacted. I think they said they were invited to campus but don’t remember for sure.

Georgia southern pfo

whyamianonymous

Cornell College pfo

anon123

There are two schools to which I applied that have scheduled interviews/flyouts and sent out PFOs, but I have not heard from them (and there isn't anything from them in my spam folder). What does/could this mean?

anon

whyamianonymous: Out of curiosity, aprox. when did you submit your application to Cornell College? I haven't heard anything from them yet and I'm wondering if they're rejecting applicants on a rolling basis.

Marcus Arvan

anon123: hard to say—but it is possible you have not been ruled out. Sometimes search committees have alternates in case none of the people interviewed or flown out are judged satisfactory to hire.

anon

Marian University has started to schedule first-round interviews.

Michel

anon: I know someone who applied on the deadline, and has received their rejection.
