Academic Jobs Wiki

Ok, how about 2010-2011 search?

What's out there? 2008-2009 Applications Back to AcademicJobSearch Home


  • If you are applying for academic jobs in dance during the 2008-2009 school year, this wiki is for you. Since dance departments do not always do a good job of notifying applicants about the status of their search, this wiki allows job applicants to share their updates with each other. Through this collaborative effort, job searchers can provide the latest news on the dates and status of phone interviews, conference interviews, campus visits, job offers, and acceptance of job offers. As we work together, we can help keep search committees more honest.
  • Our goal is to list below all known open searches. Please check the below job listing web sites frequently and add new searches as they appear on the Internet.
  • When adding news about a search, place three equal signs before and after the name of the school, and finish your note with the date in parentheses. Please start each new sub-entry with a "star." This keeps entries easy to read and makes development over time more clear. Thanks!
