corecore

any news from MIT (metaphysics) or NYU (M+E)?

Caldwell annoyed.

The college of idaho news is frustrating. They had a due date exactly six weeks ago. It is a general position so I assume they had a lot of applications. To have zoom interviews “Almost a month ago” means that they sifted many applications within a few weeks. Where are the PFOs?

history

Any news about Yale (Post-Kantian Continental) or NYU (History)?

Bucknell

Bucknell: "I’m writing to inform you that we are shortly beginning our interview process with other candidates. It remains possible, however, that we will make further interview invitations"

Hooray Bovay

Interview request for Bovay Chair and Director (Cornell Engineering) https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/21732

Bucknell 2: Electric Boogaloo

I also received Bucknell's note from Bucknell. Anyone who applied there care to state whether or not they also received it?

Third Time's a Charm

@Bucknell 2: Electric Boogaloo I applied to Bucknell and got the same letter.

bucknellllllll

I also just received the same notice from Bucknell.

Rice info

Zoom Interview request for Rice (history of modern phil)

Howard

Any news about Howard (https://philjobs.org/job/show/21386 )?

snoopin'

@OK UBC was that for the political science job?

KA

Just got a PFO from NCSU's logic search.

Wondering

Does anyone know if an offer was extended by Utah Tech?

OK UBC

@snoopin' — This was for ethics and moral philosophy https://philjobs.org/job/show/21930

SLAC TT

PFO Morningside University

Bob

Zoom interview with Rice (history of modern)

Pitt

Pitt Open/Open longlist interviews

Anon

@Wondering Utah Tech extended an offer, candidate accepted it

Curious to know

Question (apologies if they should be in the discussion thread): if institutions haven’t extended interview offers by this Friday would that mean they would wont likely do so until the new year? Assuming they haven’t sent out PFOs etc

sad to know

@Curious to know, nope that's not for sure. I know for a fact that one committee will be meeting between xmas and new years to make interview requests.

NCSUPFO

PFO NC State

Hopeful King

Has anyone heard from Kings College London? Their deadline was Nov 6

updates

Interview request Missouri S&T

anon

Anyone heard back from Macalester or Toronto (Mississauga campus)?

Nope

PFO Samford

good ol Southern Baptist here

Samford email "requesting an extension" (lol) and promising to have a list of 10ish to interview by Monday 12/19. (A prior email had said they either would have interviews ready by 12/16 or would wait till the New Year.)

anonymouse

PFO Simon Fraser (History of Philosophy) - over 250 applications

simon says

PFO Simon Fraser history of philosophy

pfo no

@Nope Did Samford really send a PFO? You didn't get this weird email requesting an interview extension?

RH

Also got the Simon Fraser PFO

Third Time’s a Charm

Seton Hill University on campus interview request.

long shot

@anonymouse Did Simon Fraser say whether they've contacted people about interviews yet? Haven't heard from them either way.

Caltech?

Caltech TT info, anyone? Since it's now been a month

Yep it's a nope

@PFO No Directly from the email, "I am writing with the unwanted news that, after the search committee met yesterday to identify folks for interviews, we are no longer considering you, along with 80% of the other candidates, for the position."

No Holidays in Academia

@Curious to know: Nope. It’s possible. I had an interview request on 12/22 last year, and they only gave me options to interview on 12/26 or 12/27. They weren’t flexible with scheduling despite travel days, time zone differences, poor internet connection, or short visit/plans with family that I had to cancel to be available. Maybe that’s a one-off, but who knows. So, plan to pack your blazer/outfit and interview prep materials if you’re planning to travel during the holidays!

Curious

It might be early for some of these, but any news from the following?

Trinity (TX)
Oregon State
Bridgewater State

long shot

@Junyeol Kim I too didn't receive either the PFO or any request for interview/flyout from SFU

anonymouse

Samford zoom interview request

not exactly shocking

PFO Yale (ancient, open rank)

yale

Yale notice of campus interviews

WANTJOB

@not exactly shocking and @yale: so I'm assuming that receiving nothing suggests that I'm on some uninvited long-list? Or are the invitations still being sent out?

Ct

PFO Yale (Post-Kantian Continental)

not exactly shocking

@WANT JOB, it is hard to say. The Yale (ancient, open rank) search chair says only that they are inviting candidates and that I am not one of them at this time. So it’s hard to know what that means for you.

Drexel?

Has anyone heard anything from Drexel? They have a couple of different deadlines listed on their ads but also said they will be evaluating candidates to find a "suitable pool" as they come in

Waiting

Any news on Hopkins, Davis, Florida, UCLA, or Miami?

ohno
