Anyone know if UVA has made an offer yet?

texas state

Texas State hired someone already (announced on facebook), sorry!


Has UVA made an offer yet?


Cornell 2-year postdoc at the Sage School has made an offer

mmmm, sweet success

Just got a fun email from Emerson's Marlboro Institute telling me that I recently interviewed for their one-year position (I didn't get an interview) and asking me if I wanted to adjunct a few classes for them. It's always cool to know that you're totally not good enough for a job but totally good enough to do the exact same job for almost no money, benefits, or respect.


Any more news about Guelph?


Any news about Bristol Mind and Language position?


Any news about the Emory VAP (ancient)?


Any news on Teaching Assistant Professor in PPE at UNC Chapel Hill?

on the trail

Interview request for Oregon Institute of Technology's one year thing: https://philjobs.org/job/show/20402

not my year

Seemingly personalized PFO from the Geneva/Antwerp joint postdoc on emotion stating they have selected a candidate.

Leeds again

Leeds: Lecturer in Political Theory (ESLPO1071) PFO.


CSU San Bernardino (ancient) has made an offer

More Than My Twenteith PFO

PFO from University of Twente.


Any word from Utrecht after the initial round?

agnes scott

Agnes Scott postdoc has contacted short list

no more PFOs

PFO from Colorado State University (TT, Phil.Sci). They say they ended up hiring someone already on a TT track.


PFO CSU San Bernardino (ancient


Wednesday night I received a PFO from Texas State that said that I made it to the "second round" but that they went with another candidate. I'm not sure what the "second round" of their process involved - just not thrown in the trash, or given a serious lookover? So, I'm not 100% sure what to do with that information. But I thought it was a nice thing to say.

not my cycle

@no more PFO's was this after an interview and/or flyout?

I haven't heard anything from Colorado State since I applied, including a PFO. Obviously, I didn't get the job, but I'm curious why I didn't get a PFO either.

Wake Forest

Wake Forest Character Postdoc has made an offer


@Wake Forest which postdoc?

Chula NoVista

Any word on the position at Southwestern Community College District? Up until today, my application was showing 'in progress,' but now it has entirely disappeared from the site. There's no archived version of my app; in fact, there's no evidence that I ever applied.

Wake Forest

@ anon: This one --


no more PFOs

@not my cycle, I had no interview with them at all.


Re Wake Forest, I received an interview request last week for the other one (Pre-Law) https://philjobs.org/job/show/20134

PFO texas state

@PFrickO I received the same thing from Texas State. Not sure what it meant either.

Another Texas State email

@PFrickO, @PFO texas state, I got a similar email but with slightly different wording, saying I was in the top 10% but was not among those selected as a semifinalist. I also did not interview with them so was unsure what to make of it


First round interview request for Clark College.


@Another Texas State email: thanks. That indicates that being in the second round is probably closer to "not thrown in the trash" than it is to "given a serious lookover." I still thought it was somewhat helpful.

Sisyphus again

Any news about the UC Boulder three-year Instructor position in philosophy (i.e. the one with the May 6 deadline)?

Roaming Buff

CU Boulder three-year Instructor: I was told about a week ago that the search committee hoped to have a shortlist (of at that time undetermined length) by the end of this week. Hope that helps and good luck!


Anyone heard from RISD, Memphis, Harvard's Martin Postdoc, Louisville, Georgia Tech, or Cincinnati?


Informed earlier today by Worcester State (my second application to them after their job was seemingly re-posted a couple months ago) that the "search has been discontinued and this position will not be filled."


I was offered the University of Virginia, General Faculty position today. I expect to take it.


Any news on Vienna's university professor position or Bristol's political lecturer position? Thanks :)


any updates on Guelph - have they made an offer yet?


@philiousmonk I interviewed at Memphis two weeks ago and have yet to hear back. They said they are waiting for HR.


@philiousmonk Sorry, I was referring to Memphis.


Interview, Yale Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities

WF update

Wake Forest offer for postdoctoral fellowship in Leadership and Character has been accepted.

not my cycle

PFO from Cornell/Sage School postdoc indicating they had offered the position and the offer had been accepted.


Alvernia Future Professor Fellowship has been offered (not to me).


Anyone heard from Harvard (Martin Postdoctoral Fellow)?


Any news on aarhus, center for science studies (philosophy of data science)? It has been 6 weeks

Out in the first round anyway

PFO from Guelph, they said they've made an offer to a candidate and the candidate accepted


Pratt has made an offer for their Tenure Track Environmental Phil position, and it has been accepted (the position went to their current VAP).


Colorado State PFO (Phil Sci AOS) stating that they hired someone who already had tenure but was willing to ('temporarily') give up tenure to take the position.

Valuable information.


Anything from Houston Clear Lake?


Any information on Bellevue College?


PFO from IE Madrid (Ethics/Epistemology/Political) (TT) https://philjobs.org/job/show/19517

Bellevue College

Bellevue College requested interviews in late April,; interview dates in late May and early June.

not my cycle, but also maybe not not my cycle?

Offer received for a one-year postdoc from Antwerp center for philosophical psychology, which I will likely accept. I believe there were multiple positions, though, so if you applied (and were interviewed), my getting this offer doesn't mean you won't get one.

In other news: still no PFO from Colorado State.


Does anyone know anything about the chicago state position?

end of the trail

Received an informal offer from Oregon Institute of Technology for their one year visiting post. Unsure if I'll accept.


Has Agnes Scott made an offer?


Bristol Mind and Language Lecturer (permanent) position PFO today.

Unique User Name

Anyone have any update on the Great Books humanities Teaching Assistant Professor job in the Herbst Program at UC Boulder?

A More Unique User Name

Any news on the UC Boulder 3-year instructor position in philosophy? It's been almost a month since the application deadline.


Bristol socio-political phil. lectureship - interview invitation.


PFO from US Coast Guard Academy

UVA bound

The University of Virginia general faculty position is now filled.

ain't got no rocks to roll

@A More Unique, invitations to interview for the CU Boulder job have been sent, or at least some have been.


Anyone heard from Harvard's Martin Postdoc?

Curious applicant

Anyone have any idea who Geneseo hired?


I applied to US Coast Guard Academy and haven't got a PFO or an interview invite. Anyone out there know anything more?

Heading to Texas Tech

The visiting assistant professor job at Texas Tech has been accepted.


Any news about Agnes Scott?


@chicagoan Did you respond to the email asking for citizenship clarification / put your last name in the subject line? It was very weird and disorganized.

stop watching the job board, Joe

Interviews for Missouri S&T's one year VAP are scheduled for this week.


@Coastie Yes I did respond to that citizenship email and received a response to that. Since then I haven't heard anything.


@chicagoan Hmm, that's weird! Well, then I would take it as a good sign. The way these federal hires work, HR refers it to the hiring agent, so if you haven't gotten a PFO, I would imagine that you've advanced to the next stage. Fingers crossed for you, friend!

No Moravian

I am pretty sure that Moravian's offer (TT) was extended and accepted by someone. But has anyone received an official rejection after their interviews?


Any news from Cincinnati VAP, Harvard Martin Postdoc, U of Louisville VAP, RISD, or Northern Arizona?


Any news about the Georgia Tech postdoc?


Anyone knows what happened with Bristol (AI) and Aarhus (data science)? Usually from Uk and northern european institutions pfos come at the phase of shortlisting (which I'm sure already happened)

Georgia Hopeful?

@GT I had an interview two weeks ago, I believe they all took place that week. I haven't gotten an update since then.


Received an interview request from Cuyahoga CC by phone this morning for a 1 year gig.

Northern European


Usually, but not necessarily. For example, Utrecht had two jobs recently where they shortlisted many weeks before PFOs went out.


PFO from Pratt Institute this morning.


Interview invite from Newcastle (lectureship in political philosophy & theory).


Any news about Vienna's professorship in modern philosophy?


@Northern European -- so do you have news from Utrecht by any chance?

O Me-o, O My-o, O Cleveland, O-HIO

First interview request (Zoom) from Case Western Reserve (TT, Bioethics). The interview invite email arrived June 8th; I’m posting late.

Northern European


Yes, PFO in the past week. Didn't post it, because someone had already said that Utrecht went out for interview weeks ago.

disposable VAP

Offer out for Missouri S&T's VAP. Sounds like it won't be accepted.

Missing Positions

Does anyone know what happened with Princeton's open rank ethics position?

Or (if this can be shared) why UNC-Chapel Hill cancelled their open rank PPE search?

Arizona dreaming

I know the soft deadline was June 1st, but has anyone heard from NAU? The posting says they want someone to start in August so it has to be a pretty quick hiring process...


Interviews scheduled for the NTT teaching job (Philosophy + Computer Science) at the University of Toronto

Helplessly Hoping

@philoniousmonk: A friend of mine was offered and accepted the VAP position at Cincinnati.


Interview request (via phone) from trident technical college (state of South Carolina).


Has anybody heard back from Bristol after the interviews earlier this week?

how come?

Still no news about Harvard Martin Postdoc??

re: Princeton

@Missing Positions, the Princeton position was offered to someone (that person is at a near-ish tenure career stage, so maybe they are undergoing the tenure process or are otherwise negotiating between their home institution and Princeton; no idea if they are accepting the job and I suspect we won't hear for a little while).


Anyone heard from the LSE fellowship in Philosophy (moral/political/business ethics) after the interviews earlier this week?


LSE: I saw someone (a moral/political philosopher) post on twitter today that they had accepted an LSE fellowship. Given the timing I'd say there is a reasonable chance it's the same job you are referring to, but I could be wrong.

LSE and Me


There was also an LSE fellowship in logic/philsci that was advertized a bit earlier.

A Pirate

Bristol (phil of AI) is scheduling interviews.


PFO from NAU.

yum yum

PFO from Toronto (teaching stream)
