Great Lakes Hopeful

First-round interview request from Northland College.


NTMZ, I have it on good authority that a candidate was selected for a flyout but declined, and that the department will not be hiring anyone for that line this year.


@ Jacob Hus I got it but not sure if the same happens as that to @another Moravian


has anyone heard back from Fairfield after first round interviews?


Anyone have news on the following?

- Worcester State
- UMass Amherst
- SUNY Genesee
- Swarthmore
- Wittenberg



Duke is scheduling flyouts

hopeless academic

Did anyone hear a confirmation that UCLA Phil & Law Fellow sent out interview requests? Also did anyone hear of Emory TT choose finalist for campus visits?


Leiden (theoretical/logic/AI) informed a long list of 10.


Writing sample and letter of recommendation requested for Dominican open rank, open AOS/AOC.

san ber'dino?

I take it that there is still no word on second-round interviews at Cal State San Bernardino (ancient), yeah?


Leeds has a longlist. Asked for further material to come up with shortlist.

ark of kansas

Anyone hear from Arkansas yet?

Reserve Labor

UBC Okanagan sent an email to their long-list asking them to submit letters of recommendation.


PFO from Emory moral injury post-doc.


Dominican: Is that Dominican as in Ohio Dominican U? Any other details?

Dr. Waiting

SUNY Genesee contacted about first-round zoom interviews. Anyone hear about second round for Seattle University?

so many dominicans

@Hopeful, FYI, Dominican (TT, open rank and AOS) and Ohio Dominican (TT, asst/assoc, open AOS) are two separate jobs.




Leeds hopeful

@Leeds - which job is this for? They had one lectureship in moral/political philosophy and two open (grade 7 and 8)


@Hopeful: not Ohio Dominican, just Dominican. Don't know any other details unfortunately! But the deadline was less than a week ago so I'd imagine it'll be a bit before any more news.


@Leeds hopeful I'd imagine it will be the open positions (although I can't be 100% as it looks like I didn't make the longlist...). The social/political had a lot of materials to upload with initial application, the open teaching jobs had very minimal initial materials. I'm also aware that they have completed longlisting for the open positions.

delco dreamin’

Widener (TT, open) has sent out first-round interview requests.


Harvard Safra has requested letters of rec, it seems.


Has anyone heard about SUNY Brockport or Clemson flyouts?


Haven't heard back from Brockport yet. I was told second-rounders could expect to hear something around the 19th (today).

Brandeis info?

Has anyone heard back from Brandeis yet since the first-round interviews?

UBC Okanagan follow-up

@Reserve Labor:

Uh oh. Just to clarify, did UBC Okanagan contact letter writers directly or applicants?

Reserve Labor

@UBC Okanagan Follow-up: applicants (or at least on applicant, to be careful). Sorry if that’s bad news.


any news from Syracuse about second-round?


Leeds was for social/legal/political Lecturer.

Too Bad

Received PFO for UCLA tenured position


Virtual fly-outs were sent for University of Alberta AOS: Social Epistemology and AOC: Indigenous Philosophy.


Does anyone have any news about second-round for:

- Colorado State (phil sc)
- University of Georgia (ethics, data, etc)


Second round for Trinity College (CT) TT position


Warwick (logic/phil math) has a longlist.


@C'mon: Nothing yet on Georgia for me. I know they were still doing interviews last week, though, so it wouldn't be a surprise if they're still deliberating.


Is the UCSC search legit, or are they just seeing who’s out there?


PFO from second round at SUNY Brockport.


I heard from a good source that UCSC has made their initial decisions, but they are waiting for approval from administration before contacting people. So it should be any day.

UCSC which one

@posted_postdoc and @Waiting to be clear are you referring to the Philosophy department search? or to the Hist Consciousness search?


@UCSCwhichone Philosophy: https://philjobs.org/job/show/17838


What's happening with the Irvine job?!? (Philosophy of cognitive science, linguistics, etc)

Gannon wtf

still nothing from Gannon about the second round?!

postdoc hopeless

PFO from McMaster: "We received 127 complete applications for this job, many of which were extremely strong. I believe I can speak on behalf of the whole search committee when I say we were both impressed and humbled by the quality of our applicant pool this year. Many excellent applicants failed to advance. Thank you for providing us with the opportunity to learn about you and your work, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavours."

PFO aficionado

PFO from UMass Amherst


PFO from UMass Amherst


...anyone still waiting for their UMass Amherst rejection?

PFO Collector

@ugh I heard it was a PFOthirsty slaughter, with no one left standing, Apparently,they ran out of names and had to start send them to applicants from other departments too.


any word from the emory bioethics postdoc?

amherst long list hopeful

@ugh I still haven't received one. it could mean anything but if we haven't gotten anything in a few days including an interview invite I would surmise we made the longlist


University of Mary has contacted interviewees

I'm still here

Still waiting on my UMass PFO. This is exciting.


According to the phil jobs posting, UMass Amherst is still accepting applications until Feb. 1st (hard deadline), so that could place constraints on notifying people who have not yet been rejected.


@PFO Collector Thanks for brightening my incredibly stupid and pfucked up day.

Not PFeeling Hopeful

Also no word from UMass on my end. I'm hesitant to make anything of it, though, for (at least) two reasons:

1) The exact same thing happened to me about six weeks ago with Wisconsin; it turned out my rejection was just delayed by a day

2) There are too many of us reporting no PFO vs how many normally report getting an interview to make me think we're all getting one.


Has anyone gotten positive news from UMass? Please reveal yourself


LPS is scheduling interviews!


@LPS Just to be clear, you mean London School of Economics and Political Science? Thank you in advance!

brandeis oh no

@KTF they almost certainly mean Irvine-LPS.

Brandeis is scheduling fly outs.


@ KTF: I meant the LPS of UCI, thank you @Brandeis! Also: best of luck to you!! This is harder than winning a lottery methink and hope you get it in the end :).


Anyone know if MIT make an offer for their ethics of computing and technology postdoc?

@MITtie: They did make an offer, yes. I'm sorry.


PFO from UMass, a day late. Ah, well


Just received UMass PFO (a day later).

I'm no longer still here

Finally got my UMass Amherst PFO


I just wanted to say I appreciate all of you who post job market reports here! It's a crappy experience on the market, but this thread makes it a little more manageable.


@Anon Oof. Can you say a bit about this, if it's your interview? (When they contacted you, etc.?) I know it's probably pointless to keep hoping, but a guy can dream.


Has anyone still not gotten a UMass PFO / has anyone gotten positive news from them?


has anyone heard from UC Santa Cruz since the above update?


@MarketBooodbath I don't have a lot of info, just that I got an email on Friday (1/21) afternoon; looks like they're scheduling interviews for the first 2 weeks of February. They didn't indicate number of slots though, or a timeline. Sorry.
