Has anyone heard from the Johns Hopkins mental disorder postdoc?

I heard from a grapevine that the Johns Hopkins mental disorder post doc will likely have a short list by the end of the month.

JHU postdoc

@xmas spirit thanks so much for that info! Do you happen to know how they plan to narrow down the shortlist at that point, e.g. one round of interviews or two?

Irrtum

Sam Houston (Race/Science) is scheduling first-round interviews.

circling the drain

I know this has been asked before a couple of times, but had anyone heard anything about Carleton University?

anon

Supermercado, would you mind sharing how you heard that from UNC PPE? No worries if not!

anonymous person

Carleton University has scheduled virtual flyouts.

doe

Anyone else not heard anything yet from UNC-CH/PPE? Are they sending out rejections manually?

you be see

UBC (ethics) news?

Ubc2

You be see - nothing yet, they said they’ll contact longlisted people again mid January. Waiting too!

Lottery player n

@doe: nothing yet for me. I assume they contacted the shortlist for fly outs and are contacting those who’ve not made an initial cut now, with people in between remaining in limbo. Of course it’s possible that they’re contacting everyone not on the fly out list with rejections and just taking their time. Past rejections from them on my end have been done manually by the search chair in the past, and the above note about the thoughtful rejection above suggests that this has not changed. Good luck either way!

you be see

@Ubc: Thanks!

lottery player n

PFO, brown university.

also unc ppe

@doe @Lottery player n
I received a PFO from UNC PPE, too. IT was a kind, personally-addressed kind of note. My guess is he's taking his time sending them.

philosoloser

Anyone heard anything about the Leiden job (university lecturer practical philosophy)?

anon

Macalester has sent at least one invitation for virtual flyouts.

anon

Checking in again: anyone out there heard anything new or different from Florida Gulf Coast?

Any idea if they moved on to campus interviews?

@anon, did Macalester just get in touch with you today?

anon FGCU

still nothing from FGCU either

Macalester

@anon also interested to hear when Macalester reached out. Anyone else who interviewed hear from them either way? I haven’t heard anything

Mac

@Macalester I’ve also yet to hear anything one way or another.

AnonF

Nothing from FGCU for me neither.

Homer

Has anyone heard anything from Bard?

Anon

Rejection from Washington & Lee, saying the position has been filled.

Norway

Has anyone heard anything about the Oslo postdoc in the New Frontiers of Speech project?

circling the drain

Nothing from Bard yet, here.

Anon

Has anyone who interviewed with UW Evans School for the ethics and justice position been contacted yet? As I recall, the plan was for them to let us know one way or the other by mid-January.

anonanon

I'm another person that hasn't heard anything from Macalester.

Mac

For those of you who interviewed at Macalester and haven’t heard anything either, are you assuming it’s a rejection at this point?

Buscando

Had anyone heard from Dartmouth regarding their TT position?

MacAnon

Macalester scheduled virtual campus visit 2 days ago

emanon

Dartmouth Society of Fellows is scheduling interviews

yíkes

@Anon I bombed my interview with the UW Evans School for the ethics and justice, but haven't heard from them either (one way or another) if that helps.

Macalester

@Mac I’m assuming it’s a rejection and that they’re waiting to send a rejection email until they get confirmation from their initial invites. Would be happy to hear reason to think otherwise though!

Anon

JHU

Have people already been notified if they’re on a long list for the JHU mental disorder post doc?
