Throwaway Name

Waitinginvain: I checked my application, and apparently is is "no longer under consideration" or something similar. You might check yours too.

Has anyone heard *anything* about the Assistant Teaching Professor position at Wake Forest? Anyone reached out to the department?

Joe Bob

Throwaway Name: This probably isn't helpful but I haven't heard anything about the wake forest position and haven't reached out.

Recent Grad

I also don't have much helpful to add about wake forest, but I imagine they were inundated with applications and are taking a while to work their way through them. I expect it's a similar story with U-Mass Boston and Auburn. It's possible the search committees didn't quite realize just how desirable these positions are in the current market.


UMass Boston has scheduled campus visits.

Davidson College
Bucknell University
Middlebury College
Washington University in St. Louis


KA: Middlebury started scheduling skype interviews a couple of weeks ago.

PFO from St. Anselm, Memphis, and Smith College


anybody know anything about that assistant director of undergraduate studies position that UChicago advertised?


I also reached out to Chicago: "We won’t know for a while about this. We’re still in the early stages of the search."


@KA: Middlebury has made an offer

@KA: Auburn has also made offers for its instructor positions


Bucknell VAP has conducted interviews.

Anybody heard anything from U Buffalo for their clinical ethics job?

Hilarious PFO from Lynn University: "Dear #firstname#, Thank you for applying for the #job title# position at Lynn University...etc"

Recent Grad

Haha! I read the pfo and deleted it without even noticing. Shows how much attention I give them. What a refreshingly honest pfo!


Uninformative, form pfo from UC-Merced...


I contacted Wake Forest. They made the hire in May.


Hey all,
This thing appears to have gone dormant for the 18-19 job cyclce, but did anyone hear anything from Wichita State University? They posted a job ad really late for a assistant/associate professor position with a may deadline. Thanks.
