Interview scheduled: Video interview scheduled (by phone) with committee in late January (12/17, x 3)

Am not among those contacted for a video interview, but did get a letter dated 12/21 stating my candidacy is still under consideration. (1/7 - just back from holiday travels)

Rejection letter: snail mail, dated 12/21(x2)

What field(s), may I ask, are being considered for interviews? The search was pretty wide and I'm curious to have a sense of what they are looking at. (I'm a (rejected) medieval Mediterranean person.) Thanks!

  • I'm a rejected classical art historian/archaeologist. Also a bit curious about what fields were prioritized. (1/16/10)
  • I'm being interviewed next week (ancient)- from what others have offered in the other entry below, it looks like the candidate pool they've picked is still wide, ranging from Classical to Byzantine (1/24)

Offer: (3/23) Offer Made

anyone else get the automated message saying the position has been filled? Yup. (3/26) Offer Accepted by Matthew Canepa [and candidacy withdrawn from Hopkins' search in order to take the UMN offer; good luck to the other finalists there]

Could we possibly *hope* for a VAP to open at the College of Charleston in your wake? Pretty please?

  • The budget has been cut so much and so quickly by the state they didn't replace my position when I went on research leave this year, but I really hope so: Charleston is an incredible city and CofC has excellent undergraduate-focused archaeology, art history and preservation programs (my own move was motivated primarily by a strong desire to contribute to a doctoral program). I'll post it if I hear anything and it doesn't show up here on its own; definitely keep it in mind for next year- it's a great place to live and work and you'll find great friends and colleagues here.
  • (04/12) Good news, from asking my friends who were at the last dept. meeting, it looks like there will be funding for a VAP (and, thank goodness, it sounds like there will be TT search the year after!) job posting below (btw- I think they really want the candidate to cover one of the department's critical theory/historiography courses (ARTH 299) as well offer surveys/special topics in your specialty, you might include something to that effect in your application. I'm happy to answer any 'unofficial' questions best I can, though I'm obviously not on the committee or anything (canepam [at]; be sure to direct all official inquiries to the chair]

Lebanon Valley College

Deadline: December 1

Interview scheduled Received email that position has been offered and search is closed (1/18) (x6).

Seems abrupt, no? No kidding, I never even received an acknowledgement of my materials being received. Definitely smells like a pseudo-search.

Definitely not a pseudo-search - filling a slot of a Europeanist who left.

(1/29) I got the inside scoop on this one: they hired from within - a professor who had had a dual appointment with art history and another department. (1/29): Oh, so that explains how we all got rejected so fast without interviews, and how my rejection letter made clear that my materials weren't even read? Look, if you already know who you are going to hire, don't advertise a national search, okay?

So, a pseudo-search after all. Waste of our time and money.

Something tells me we should add Lebanon Valley to the "Schools to Fear" Academic Wiki...

Deadline: 1/5/10

CAA interview to be scheduled, request for letters of recommendation (1/15) x3

Can I ask if they contacted candidates directly to request the letters, or if your letter-writers passed on this info? I ask because one of my letter-writers made a comment in mid-Jan that made me think hu had been contacted for a letter, but here we are five days before CAA and it seems I am out of luck. All best to those with interviews (2/6)

    • On-Campus Interviews are on going (3.5.10) **

Comment: is it just me, or is this position unbelievably vague? anyone have more info?

[what  follows is only a rumor, take with big grain of salt and please do correct me if what I have heard is wrong] I've heard they have multiple open positions in Western art that they would fill in an ideal world, but given massive budget cuts they can only hire one body this year.  rather than choose which position to fill, they are casting a wide net and hoping to find one outstanding junior scholar who is a specialist in any given one among the open fields, and also willing/able to teach as a generalist.  I think [I do not know, but I think] the idea is that, as the state economy recovers, they would gradually hire more people in future years, so that whoever takes this job will eventually just be responsible for their own field, though they may still teach surveys etc. as needed.  [does that make sense?  I'm curious too, if anyone out there knows more.]

-- I heard a similar story!

-- The idea makes sense. But the ad for the position, as it is written, is terrible. They have not advertised for any intellectual field ("challenging the canon" isn't an intellectual field, by the way.)

-- It's an open field search (like many searches in non-Western art history). They don't expect people to teach outside of their own fields.

-- ok, but if you wish to compare it to many non-Western searches, those hires often *are* expected to teach outside their own fields, just not to publish outside their fields. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

Does anyone know what happened with this search at UCLA????

Maybe it was not filled due to the budget? Seems possible, right? Other CA jobs were canceled this year. -- I've heard an offer was extended within the past week or two, but don't know whether it has been accepted (5/18)

-- I think the above rumors about a desire by the department to open up several Western a.h. searches (due to many retiring faculty) are true, but there is a college-wide hiring freeze with no end in sight. However, there seems to have been one recent, junior appointment in Gothic art: a female scholar. Renaissance and Greek/Roman faculty might be next...(8/2010)

Any news here? (3/19) --I understand they were contacting references mid-March, but I haven't heard anything since (3/29).

Email requesting phone interview (3/30). Interview scheduled: Email requesting campus interview (4/6)

University of Louisiana at Monroe

Deadline: January 11, 2010

- Phone interview (3/3)

- Campus interview (2/9) - Any ideas why campus interviews were held before phone interviews?

I had a phone interview before the above-mentioned campus interview. They reposted the job the day I flew down for a campus interview.

Any further news? (4/2)

I had an email response on 3/8 saying that they were still 'in process', but nothing since that time.

Rejection letter received: 4/16 (x2)

University of Oregon (Clark Honors College)

History of Science and/or 'Historian of the Arts' (2 positions)

Deadline: October 15, 2009

Interview scheduled:

question: does anyone else think that this is a strange position?  do they want a historian or an art historian?  very mysterious.  good luck everybody.  I think they want both. ack rcvd (x3) 10/22

I spoke with a professor at the U of O in the art history department, and he said the Honors College is looking for an art historian (or music person I think) to fill this position, though I suppose they could arguably select two "historians of science" if they don't like the applicants for art history. And yes, good luck everyone.

Has anyone heard anything? The History of Science wiki say interviews are scheduled for the History of Science position at the Hist Sci Society annual conference, which is next week. Do you think they will do the Art History ones at CAA?

I haven't heard anything, and it's hard to say if they'll interview at CAA. Given the deadline, CAA seems too far in the future for interviews if they're already interviewing for the science position(s) next week. Maybe they decided against an art historian, or maybe they're waiting to review the art history applicants after the science interviews are conducted.

Email update from History Search Assistant (11/16/09).  Search being conducted in two phases.  Finalists for science search have already been contacted.  Finalists for Art History search to be contacted in first two weeks of January.  Wish all searches were conducted with this much consideration for the applicants.  (Though I'm sure part of the purpose for notifying us was to turn back the flood of emails they're receiving!) ha! I was thinking they must have sent out the email b/c they read the wiki! (x4)

Does anyone think there is the possibility for an inside candidate on this position? It just seems so odd. Ans: well there certainly is a possibility, but what is odd? the job or the extended timeline? I think they just want an interdisciplinary art historian - ie both art history and general cultural history, etc. There are plenty of people like that. It is a bit of an untraditional, interdisciplinary position, but i don't see why that indicates inside candidate. :) Res: I guess I meant odd that the job was as broad as possible. Perhaps odd wasn't the best turn of phrase. Thanks for the response though. Answ: It didn't seem odd to me, more unusual. Keep in mind that they could choose a historian of performing arts, not just an art or architectural historian. Or, of course, someone who can do a bit of all of those. I thought it sounded like an exciting opportunity, myself. ;) Actually, what I'd like to know is how this position will relate to the Art History and/or other depts outside the Honors College. - a good question to ask at the CAA interview if you get it.

--CAA interview scheduled. (1/11) x5

Was this via email or phone? Thanks!

Phone call with email follow up.

What field do you specialize in?

Rejection form letter email (1/15) x5

    • Update (2/13): Just returned from interview at CAA. Def. looking for someone to teach in a broad, global framework with subjects that appeal to both art history majors and those well outside the field like biology and physics. Certainly a challenging position, esp. since graduate school teaches you to be a specialist in a particular area/time period, and yet these jobs expect you to look well beyond.

Invitations for campus visits have gone out.

University of Tulsa

Assistant Professor of Art History

Deadline: Dec. 20th

No word, anyone?

Interview Scheduled: contacted by email (1/26) to schedule CAA interview x 3

Anyone who interviewed at CAA hear back yet? (2/25) Anyone have any follow-up information about this position? (3/16)

Does anyone know if an offer has been made and accepted? (4/5) Apparently so. Letter received 4/23.

Virginia Military Institute

3-year non-TT assistant professor position

Deadline: December 15

Interview scheduled: CAA interview schedule (1/20) (x5)

received email on 1/15 that they were in the process of reviewing applications to determine interviews (x4)

Anyone have a sense of why this is a non-TT position? Also, it doesn't appear to be adjunct since it is teaching 3 courses/semester and offers benefits, I think...

Be careful - there are no benefits for this position. Was contacted 1/15 to check whether I would still be interested even though it is an adjunct position. Chairperson clarified that it comes with no benefits whatsoever.

That is awful. If the what the above poster says is true and there aren't any benefits, why would anyone want to take this job? Does VMI not have enough money to ensure that its teachers receive health insurance? Are we not better off working at Starbucks? This kind of thing will continue as long as there are underemployed art historians willing to accept these kinds of working conditions. Shame on you, VMI. (grammar edited, snark removed: let's not attack each other, OK? this should be a supportive place...typos happen).

- (np) thank you editor. That comment has been bothering me all day. We are all in such a bind this year with the horrible job market, I hope that we can rise above such caustic and unhelpful attacks. (x2) OK, snarker apologizes, I'm sorry...but I get enough comments about Starbucks without seeing it here, so I was bothered too. I also have some sympathy for VMI; they are hardly set up to make our field a priority, so rather than shaming them for not being able to offer much I appreciate that they are at least trying to broaden their offerings in the while I will not attack other posters again, let's also not attack schools -- there's a wiki for that elsewhere.

I don't understand why they need to conduct a national search for such a position. Who could relocate for a position without benefits? For someone living in the area, it is definitely a step up from adjuncting on semester-long contracts. This is deeply troubling. Even VAPs have health insurance benefits. Are you certain that no benefits are associated with this position? I agree with poster above: why do a national search? It doesn't make sense.

Campus interview scheduled for next week (1/25) - BTW, it is depressing that this is technically a full-time position but offers no benefits(there are definitely none - chair clarified this). However, as noted above, my understanding is that there is an attempt to broaden humanities department. The professor who taught Art History is retiring and/or decreasing teaching load. And, there is the potential, based on budgets and the administrative gods that this will turn into a full-time TT position. Position involves only teaching (no committees, etc.)

Thanks for the info above -- can I ask, are you local to VMI? It seems odd to host a campus interview prior to speaking with candidates at CAA. Reply: yes, I am local - had choice of interviewing at CAA or in Lexington.

Anyone heard anything else since CAA?

I was offered the position last week but have not accepted yet. Still weighing my options. Will post when decision made. (2/24) Offer accepted. 3/8/10

Received odd rejection em (2/23), notifying that the position has been offered to a candidate. However, this e-mail also stated that I was one of a small group of individuals invited for campus interviews (which I was not).

--how strange! were you interviewed at CAA in Chicago? Could they really have conducted campus visits and concluded the search in less than 2 weeks after CAA?

In reply to your question, no, I was not interviewed at CAA, which made the e-mail even more odd.

Anyone else hear anything?

2/28 I interviewed at CAA and have not been invited to campus, but was under the impression that the search is still pending. I also interviewed at CAA, and have yet to hear anything. I was under the impression that we would hear one way or another by now. When you say that the search is still pending, do you mean pending as in not yet filled, or pending as in not certain that it is going to be filled at all? Thanks for any info or impressions.

Received application acknowledgment by mail 2/2

University of Massachusetts, Boston

Contemporary Art

Deadline: 1/8

Received application acknowledgment by post 11/15 (x2) said we would hear somethng by 1/26 at the latest.

semi-finalist notification per Email. Request for letters, syllabi, and CAA interview. 1/22 (x 4)

No news, really?

Has anyone received any word at all? They said at CAA they were going to make the decision "soon".... I'm assuming they've made their choice(s) and it's just not getting posted....

offer made 3/4.

I am not understanding why one person puts "offer made 3/4" and then someone else comes along and erases it without explanation. Why would that be?

People need to learn Wiki etiquette! Were there campus interviews scheduled for this position? Or did they just offer the job to someone based on a hotel interview? ;-)

there were 3 campus visits. Job offer made and accepted last week. Congratulations! Seemed like a fantastic position.

any idea who it went to ?

WIllamette University

Modern/Contemporary/American (generalist)

deadline: October 31, 2009

received application acknowledgment in the mail 11/7' (x6)

semi-finalist notification, telephone interviews on 12/4 and 12/11 (11/23)

Just wondering, was this notification via phone, mail, or email?  (e-mail) Wondering if more than one person received this notification.

Yes, I also (a second person) received the same email notification. It went out to eight semi-finalists.

Rejection letter received on 12/4. (x4)   I have to say that despite the rejection, I am happy to have received the news this quickly.  It sounds like this department has their act together.  Good luck to the semi-finalists.

I am one of the semi-finalists. Has anyone heard anything? Anyone make the final 3 for a campus visit? (12/28) Not so far (co-semi-finalist) (12/28)

They are taking a while to get back to us, hunh? Did they say they'd let us know in Dec if we'd been picked for the campus visit?

Three people have been chosen for campus interviews.

Could you specify how you were contacted for the campus interview? Email or phone? --Sounds like information straight from the horse's mouth rather than news from an individual candidate, but I could be wrong. (1/7)

Darn... Well, good luck to the other semi-finalists out there who also didn't make the cut. -- Likewise.

Semi-finalist received rejection letter 1/8. (x2)

Have any finalists received information about this position? Has an offer been made?

This search failed. Invited three candidates and could not come to a consensus. They are not filling the position. (This doesn't surprise me. They seemed to want a hire who could teach very, very broadly, which suggested to me they might not be sure what they want.)--Make that FOUR candidates (one who was brought in at the last minute, after the initial three campus visits). Definitely seemed to not be sure what they're looking for.--Wow, I didn't know this! Crazy.

My sense was that they wanted someone who could replace a retiring Modernist who also taught some American. However, they wanted this new person to be able to teach some contemporary too. But it is silly to speculate, I suppose. There is no way to know what went on with this committee behind closed doors.--It's shocking that this search failed in this (buyer's) market. 007, eh.

Interview Scheduled: on-campus interview scheduled. 1/20 Anyone else scheduled for a campus interview? (1/25)

Q: would you mind confirming that the on-campus interview was scheduled on Nov. 20? (in other words I was surprised they scheduled so early - typo?) A: so sorry, yes this was a typo.

Upcoming talks by the four finalists posted on department web site (2/4): YOU CAN'T POST NAMES UNLESS YOU ARE ALL 4 PEOPLE AT ONCE. 2/21: DanMarino, if the stress of the job market has resulted in a derangement of all the senses, you may not have noticed that your quarrel should properly be with the University of Toronto art history department which, in posting announcements of the four job talks, has publicized their speakers to the world. If you succeed in keeping their names off this wiki, congratulations in adding 30 extra seconds and one Google search to the amount of time that it takes any reader to discover their names through his/her own effort.

Dear Arthist030: perhaps you are new to the Wiki, but we don't post names here. It's not cool. If you are one of the 4, by all means reveal yourself and congratulations! If you are not, you should not be posting names. This is, perhaps, the one rule of the Wiki we need to follow. I, for one, do not want my name broadcast on the Wiki; that's why I go by DanMarino. There has been a long history to this problem, if you want to take this conversation over to "talk" page, I would be happy to explain some of the pitfalls involved with posting names. XXOO

DanMarino, thank you for your response; I will observe that it does not address the substance of my point. There is a material difference between revealing a name on the wiki, and copying onto the wiki information that is already published elsewhere on the web. If you refer to earlier wikis, they will confirm that names, once already public, have indeed been recorded on the wiki.

Getty Institute

Postdoctoral fellowship, "The Display of Art."

Deadline: Nov 1

Does anybody know why they chose the same theme two years in a row?  Does anybody else find the theme a bit disappointing? 

Ans: The GRI always carries its theme through two years--the need for it to be broad enough to encompass many individual's research often leads to rather colourless choices.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that this is the first time that the theme has been done for two years. The new type of theme and duration of the theme most likely reflects the new director's administrative and research goals for the GRI.

Someone on the Humanities Postdoc site said s/he received an offer for a postdoc on 2/5 and again on 2/23 There are two categories of postdoc funding, one for Display, one for PST. The offers are one each on this wiki.

Anyone heard about pre-docs? Do they notify by post, email, or phone?

- Pre-doc offer received by email.

Congrats ! When are the last notifications for predocs (does this mean it's too late for a positive answer in the 1st days of March)? And does anyone know how many predocs are awarded this year?

- Thanks. I was informed in early Feb. Not sure abt the date

Have rejection letters been sent to anyone?

Received rejection letter 3/19. It was dated 2/28.

Award Letter received, off the alternate list! (4/8) Congrats!

Interview scheduled for 18th/19th C. architecture & landscape position, Contacted em 1/28

(2/28) - I was told last week that they are still deliberating for the Renaissance position.

Have any interviewees received word on this? I was told via em after my interview that we would be notified in early March.

(3/4) - which position do you mean? My understanding is they have a different timeline for the 3 different fields. If you have been contacted for an interview, would you please indicate your field?

(3/8) I was interviewed mid-Feb for the architecture & landscape position and was informed that all candidates would be notified one way or another by early March. So far I have not received any word, though, admittedly, it is still early March. I too got the impression that the urgency of the hiring timeline differed by the position, but that all the searches were more or less moving forward on a similar timeline. If anyone has received an offer, I would appreciate knowing so that I can scratch it off the list of possibilities! Thanks.

3/18 I heard that an offer has been made for the landscape position. (3/29) Anyone know what's up with the other two positions? Interview scheduled for Ren/baroque position (4/20).

I also had a great interview on 5/17 (it sounded like a fantastic position), but I was told after following up that an offer was made the same week of the interviews.

Bryn Mawr

Medieval, Byzantine and Islamic

Deadline: November 30

Received e-mail from SC Chair, requesting writing sample and syllabi - no mention of interviews or stats (12/16) x7

may I ask - are your foci more western, Byzantine or Islamic? or a mixture? -primarily western (1/6) - also western, but I did emphasize potential links to Byzantium/Islam in my cover letter (1/6) - also primarily western, but my research and course proposals emphasize contacts between western Europe, Byzantium and the Islamic world (1/8). Any news there? CAA or campus interviews? (1/19)

Interview scheduled: email to schedule CAA interview, 1/21 (x4)

Any news? I know at least one campus visit has been scheduled for early March---sadly, it's not me.

Any news on this one? 3/25 Three candidates have been invited for campus visits; the last visit occurred about ten days ago. (3/26)

Offer made. And accepted

Congratulations! Would you identify your field, if you don't mind?

It's not me, but I heard it went to a fairly advanced Byzantinist with excellent cross-cultural credentials.

I think we'll begin to hear something starting next week.

Manhattan College


Deadline: January 15

Interview scheduled: email to schedule phone interview, 2/4 (x3)

Interviews for which field(s)? thx Medieval

  • I would be very curious to hear if anyone gets a response. They posted this exact same job last year, to which I applied and never received a response (nor did I get any feedback on last year's wiki when I asked if anyone else had heard from them).
  • Last year's position was offered to someone who declined it. Maybe that was the case all around. So don't despair -- the fact that it is reposted indicates to me that they seriously want to hire someone.
  • Last year's position was filled by modernist.

Postcard ackn. received (1/21) x7 Any news post phone interviews?? Nothing yet; they didn't give me a sense of their schedule and I didn't ask---never know if it's appropriate to or not (2/25) (2/26ish) Campus visit scheduled May I ask how you were notified (email, phone, etc.)? (x2, was told that they would be notifying people either way, so I'd also love to hear how the news was passed on if you are willing to share. BTW, thought it was incredibly nice that they would do that, very refreshing) A: I was notified by phone. They ARE incredibly nice. Campus interview (3/1) x 3 In the listing for Manhattan College under Ancient, it states that someone received a letter saying the search was closed. Is this the same position or a different position? Any news here? (3/26) I also received rejection letter this week stating that search is closed (yes, same position) -- they had around 100 applicants (3/26). Does 'closed' mean the position has been filled, or that the search failed? (3/26) Heard that an offer has been made (3/31) Any idea who the new professor is? Do we in fact know that the offer has been accepted? Also wondering what field since the posting was so broad. (4/7) I only heard an offer was made, not that it has been accepted (4/7).

Offer made and accepted (Ren)

Any news? (4/7) Offer was made in early March -- not to me, though, so I don't know the status. (5/05) I just heard the search failed and now they are scrambling- does anyone know if someone actually accepted the position or if this rumor is true? That's not what I heard! On good authority, an offer has been made and accepted, but not by me so no more details (5/18)

Position went to Christina Normore.

Am not among those contacted for a video interview, but did get a letter dated 12/21 stating my candidacy is still under consideration. (1/7 - just back from holiday travels) x4 (1/25 still no rejection, but i see many interviews scheduled: confusing!)

What field(s), may I ask, are being considered for  interviews? The search was pretty wide and I'm curious to have a sense of what they are looking at.  Thanks!

Offer: Offer made end of last week (3/14) uh, whoever posted that had an IP address in hong kong (!)- how do you know that's true? I heard they still have yet to meet to decide. I--a finalist--was contacted at the end of last week and told they had not yet made a decision (3/15). (3/23) Offer Made

3/25: Presumably accepted, as electronic system at UMN just sent a rejection note saying the position was filled. Would the new professor identify his/her field...? 3/26: Offer Accepted by Matthew Canepa From one of the other finalists, a hearty congratulations!

Wayne State University


Deadline: Review begins January 22 , open until filled

Not clear if they're doing CAA interviews - posting says that "representatives will be there to provide information."

  • I think that means they won't be doing formal interviews, but will set up a table for meet & greet - given the huge number of medieval jobs this year, perhaps this is their way to get a sense of the applicant pool and who is most interested in them...a nice idea, really.

Interview scheduled: telephone interview scheduled by telephone (1/28) x2 letter requested from recommender (2/9)

Are there only two of us on here waiting to hear about campus visits? Is no news bad news? (2/23) I am the other person - I also have not heard anything since the phone interview, except for letter requests from recommenders (2/23) I am a third person, and have also heard nothing except for letter requests (2/24).

What happened to the campus visit that was posted here?

  • Dunno. Did anyone else notice the department chair changed during the search? This could be why its being run so badly.
  • I hadn't noticed, but that would explain why the requested letters that had already been sent

Just had word from them that they've cancelled the search for budget reasons (3/4)

  • received letter stating same... rather a nice one, actually. (3/8)
  • Ditto about the nice letter. Very considerate. (3/9)

University of Chicago

Early Modern, 1400-1800


Interview Scheduled:interviews are underway

Any news here? CAA isn't too far off.... Anyone heard anything about this position? I fear it is canceled like their position last year.

I know they have asked at least one candidate (not me, I should say) for additional documents, so it seems the search is still on.

I think Chicago prefers to have substantial (often multiple) writing samples early in the process, so they may be requesting additional material from people whose writing samples were not substantial enough for them to get a good sense of the whole. I say this because two years ago I was asked for an additional writing sample for a different search and I do not think it was because I had made it to a second round. (My point is that people who have not been asked for additional documents should not necessarily assume they are no longer in contention).

Has this position been advertised several times prior to this year? I know I saw it last year as the person above mentioned, but I also seem to remember having seen it one or two years prior to that? Does anyone know if their searches keep getting canceled or is there some other situation going on?

Two years ago they searched for an early modernist and they hired someone who works primarily on early modern Africa (Cecile Fromont). I do not think they searched in early modern last year, though they did run two broad searches. It occurs to me also that the posting did technically have a December 15th deadline (review began October 1, full consideration for applications received by December 15), so they may also just be waiting until after then to make decisions.

Just a point of clarification on the above post: it's actually not just that "full consideration" will be given to applications received by December 15. Only those applications for which ALL materials (including the three letters of recommendation) are RECEIVED by December 15 can be considered AT ALL due to new university rules. And yes, not receiving a request for more materials does not mean you are out of the running. Applications are being considered as they arrive. Often applicants mistakenly believe they should submit published items merely because they are published, even if they are not the most representative samples of their work, so the committee will ask for something else. Or, the committee wants a second dissertation/book chapter to get a better idea of the project as a whole.

Given that the CAA conference is just around the corner, one wonders...

Well, they may be skipping CAA interviews and going straight to campus interviews. So they may be on a different schedule. Still, it would seem a strange choice, since CAA is in Chicago this year.

Any interviews scheduled?

The search is underway, but I am not permitted to give further info at this point.

pre CAA interviews took place via skype.

Visiting Assistant Professor, 20th-C Art

Anyone else having trouble finding this position on the jobs site? A: It's nowhere to be found on the job site. I emailed HR but have yet to receive a response.

It is on their site, I checked. Search under open faculty positions.

Job was difficult to find to say the least. Called the secretary on 3/25 to see what was up. She had no clear idea about the position. After checking with someone, she responded that "they were not accepting applications anymore". At the question "for how long was the position advertised?" she could not respond even after checking again.

When I applied, the deadline given on the Website was early March--however, I was able to upload my application a week after the deadline. I have not heard anything.

Offer made and accepted.

I thought that 12-20 CAA interviews were standard. No? A: No way. Most schools narrow their first short list down to 8-10 candidates. 17 is a *lot*. Be prepared for the committee to be very tired, and don't take it personally if they forget your name/specialty!

Usually 6-10 interviews is more normal. has anyone heard anything about campus visits? (2.25)

No, simply notified of "finalist" status, but decision on campus visits still pending, in my understanding.

Was that in response to your inquiry? Sounds a bit odd to send out such a notification, but maybe it's normal. Thanks
