Thanks for gathering this info, Marcus!

One trend I've noticed over the past couple years is that a greater proportion of posts are not TT. Moving forward, it'd be great to see if the larger number of posts (if it holds) reflects a larger number of TT posts or also the adjunctification (post-docification?) of the profession and universities more generally.


I also noticed that many of the August postings were for positions that begin this academic year (22-23). Does this year’s total include these jobs? (And do the totals for the earlier years?) Thanks!

Marcus Arvan

@22-23: I sorted the searches by job ads posted during August each year, regardless of when the jobs actually begin. So, the same types of jobs should be included each year, though they obviously jobs with different start-dates may vary significantly across different years. The update I plan to provide on October 1st should provide additional clarity on how this year's market looks for jobs beginning next year!
