Hi Anxiety, Would you be willing to share where the UW Superior job was advertised? I don't remember seeing it (but perhaps I did and just forgot). Thanks in advance.


@anon Re: PFO Hecht-Levi: When did you get that? I have still heard nothing. Maybe they lost my app.!? Has anyone gotten a Hecht-Levi interview?

Also: Cleveland Clinic is still deliberating.

bioethics forever

Any news from NIH?


@Anon: I got the PFO from JHU Hecht-Levi yesterday. It was a form rejection from Interfolio. All it said was, "Thank you for your interest in the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics Hecht-Levi Fellowship Program. We have received an overwhelming number of highly qualified applicants this year, resulting in a difficult selection process. Unfortunately, we are unable to extend an offer for a position to you at this time for the 2021-2022 academic year of the Hecht-Levi Fellowship."

So, no indication here they've already made a final offer. They could still be deliberating, and I was just in the first batch of rejections.

Rene Rousseau

PFO from Penn State Berks...haven't heard from St. Bonaventure about second round interview


I too have not yet heard anything regarding the Hecht-Levi, so I doubt that they lost your (our) applications.

not throwing away my shot

Has anyone heard back from the University of Calgary ethics position?

circling the drain

I haven't heard anything from Calgary yet, but on Philjobs the deadline was pushed back untilearly March, I don't remember the exact date.


Thought I’d put it out there that my PFO from the UNC Chapel Hill post doc was actually filtered into spam by Gmail! So worth checking your spam if you’re waiting on them

blast from the past

PFO from Lawrence University of Wisconsin (https://philjobs.org/job/show/15702).


MindCore rejected me :(

superior search functionality

@Annie, the UW Superior post was advertised here: https://philjobs.org/job/show/16554

As maybe you know, PhilJobs lets users search for expired ads using the 'more search options tab' in the search bar on the left side of the screen when you're using the browse jobs ad.


PFO from NYU Shanghai

re: Calgary

Calgary wrote me this week to let me know they had added a document I sent separately (by email) to my file, so I'd guess they're still reviewing applications.

UNC PostDoc

PFO from Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity. (Fairly nice email, was sorted into spam so may want to check there if you're waiting on that!)



I didn't. Thanks for that, I'm grateful.


Has anyone who interviewed first-round for the Northeastern AI Ethics teaching job heard back about a second round?


@anon SBU, St. Bonaventure reached out for the second round of interviews on Feb 15th. Sorry.


PFO from Durham (Assistant Professor in Moral, Social and Political Philosophy)


Longlisted at Durham (Assistant Professor in Moral, Social, and Political Philosophy)


PFO from UNC-Chapel Hill (Asst Prof Position)


Has anyone heard anything from the MIT postdoc? (NC Ethics of Technology Fellowship)

Hey Nony

@Anon - I wrote MIT in early February and they still had not sent out interviews. They were hoping to make progress by the end of Feb. Not sure if they did or not, but I have not heard anything either.


Uninformative, form pfo from Durham philsci.

Pottery Lottery

Has anyone heard anything about Rotman Institute (Western Ontario) postdocs or timeline? e.g. has anyone gotten a request for letters? [https://philjobs.org/job/show/16142] Thanks!


I was long listed today for the Harvard Embedded EthiCS postdoc. It's unclear whether it was for the application due 12/31, or the application due 2/16.


Berman Institute’s (at Johns Hopkins) Hecht-Levi Fellowships accepted by two candidates. PFOs forthcoming.

recent phd

"assistant professorship in applied ethics, with a focus on technology, at the University of Twente" has scheduled interviews for longlisted candidates.


Has anyone heard from Oklahoma State? I think they said they'd be meeting the first week of March.
