Any Wyoming updates? (2/2)

Anybody heard anyting from Buffalo or Wyoming? A: Only that they both got huge dumpings of snow...

Has anyone heard anything from the New Brunswick (Canada) job? Deadline was October 3rd, but the positing has been deleted?

-Received response from College of Wooster (12/19) indicating that they've moved on to the next phase of the search.

--- [to the Wooster poster above] Do you mean you got a rejection, or that you contacted them and they told you they'd moved to the interview phase? A.: Unclear if they've moved on to interviews specifically, but it sounds like they have a shortlist (i.e. I wasn't on it).

--Anyone know anything about the UT-Austin literature and theory after 1650 job (it is not listed here or in C18)? The department has held the campus visits.
