Faculty "Job Coach":


  • Anyone know what's going on with West Point? I assume they must've sent out interview requests along time ago if they haven't canceled the search or something.
  • I moved the Bard/Berlin position to the adjunct/part time categories since they're paying per class, rather than offering a proper salary for a full-time position. Nothing about the ad itself suggests the positions are full or part time, but paying per class suggests this adjunctory.
  • Taking every liberty to subvert this page by calling attention to the inability of these employers to return the basic courtesy of their applicants. Really, the humanities should be better than this. Universities, you should let your unsuccessful applicants know they're not going to the first round, never made the longlist. It's a short email that would acknowledge the effort it takes to apply in the first place. A template would begin with something along the lines of 'Dear Applicant' and end with a parting word that encourages one to keep on. In these times, it is literally the least you could do. (x4) (🤬) --> AMEN!!!
  • Why the heck is Furman the ONLY place that is requiring dossier delivery? I know this is relatively normal, but search committees need to do better and not make applicants pay to apply to their contingent position.
  • The Kafkaesque lack of transparency with these searches (weeks and weeks after people have had Zoom interviews and campus visits) is a joke. Damaging and dystopian. We are human beings.
  • Having been on the job market for two years in a row and returning from a 3-year hiatus in a fixed-term position, I can tell you that a lot of what you're experiencing here is common place. You shouldn't think that, simply because they're institutions of higher education, that they regard you as little more than sacks of meat capable of providing pedagogical labor. I mean, sure, the folks within the hiring departments see you as more than that, but the institutions overseeing them and the hiring processes for these positions do not.
    • Just because it's commonplace doesn't mean we shouldn't critique it. Many of us have been on the market for years, and it's dehumanizing to say the least. I'm also not convinced that search committees/people in hiring departments *do* see us as more than our labor. If they did, they'd send rejection emails, follow up after interviews, keep us informed on the progress of the search, etc etc. The humanities can and should do better.
  • Per an email I received from the search committee chair for the Knox position, "This is a longstanding visiting position we've had at Knox. In that regard, yes this is renewable and we've enjoyed a few visitors staying several years. However, both AAUP guidelines and our own faculty handbook indicate that full-time faculty must be provided an opportunity for review and promotion to associate professor with tenure on the same schedule (6 years at Knox). In the past, administration has not committed to a second tenure-line. So that's a long way of saying, yes, it's absolutely renewable, but these renewals have been limited in the past. " He also sent a separate email extending the application deadline and extending the focus of their search.
  • Have known a couple of people at this position. True the admin will not commit to a second tenure line or more than one year contracts.
  • ^^^ that’s disgusting! Somebody needs to step up and speak out!
  • ^^^I agree, but that could be said of almost every position (outside of TT) on this list. It depends then on whether there are limits or you have a supportive department/admin. Neoliberal university and an over- saturated market.
  • Per an email exchange with the search committee chair for the App State position, I confirmed that the position is renewable and moved it to the renewable positions' section.
  • Position at Duke moved to term-limited, as it is a 1-year renewable with a threshold of 3 years (i.e., no more than three years)
  • Position at Princeton moved to term-limited, as it is a 1-year renewable with a stated threshold of 2 years (i.e., renewable only one additional year; term-limited contingent on enrollment and departmental need)
  • Solidarity with everybody waiting to hear back on things. This year has been brutal even with a decent number of positions available <~ sending warm thoughts & good luck your way! And, yes.
  • Hallihallo, does anyone know if the new Centre College TT listing is "aktuell." I saw via a social media post a couple of months ago they had hired a TT position, and was wondering if the listing might be an administrative thing. Danke!
