  • For full consideration: 1 Sept. 2023
    • Any news, anyone?
    • Not yet.
    • [Sept 25] still waiting... x7
    • [Oct 2] still no news x4
    • [Oct 4] A friend got an email requesting an interview a few days ago. They already had their interview last week.
    • so that's it then?
    • they didn’t request any other materials or references? Just went right to the interview? --> They asked for letters before the interview.
    • Just curious: how did they manage to interview "already" "last week" but received the request for an interview "a few days ago?" [Columbo voice]
    • English is not my first language... I know how horrible it is to wait for these emails, so I thought I would share what I know. I have no incentive to be wasting my time making things up. It's up to you whether you believe it or not. But why would a program set such an early deadline, one of the first in the season, and not have taken any action after a month…
    • I appreciate the information! But I don't think Sep. 1 is such an early deadline, and it's very common for searches to take much longer than a month to make initial cuts. I guess I'm struggling to see how, with an applicant pool of ~300-400 people, and assuming you give two weeks for reviewers to send in letters, a search would manage to have already conducted first-round interviews within a few weeks of closing applications. I'm not saying it's not possible! But it would mean narrowing down those 400 to 40 within a week, getting the committee to read 120 letters the second they come in, and winnowing those 40 to 16 within days...
    • [Oct 5] it seems pretty unlikely that they would skip the entire second round process of requesting letters and other materials and have already conducted interviews. Oct 4 poster, are you sure you are commenting on the right thread about your friend?
    • [Oct 5] This process is brutal enough. How lame if someone is just messing with this wiki.
    • [Oct 12] Anyone else hear anything about this? Get a letter request or an interview request? I would've thought there'd be at least one other person on this board to have their letters pulled...
    • I haven’t gotten any letter or interview requests either.
    • Same here, no word.
    • [12 Oct] I got an email this morning saying that the search committee "appreciated reading your application, but are now interviewing finalists".
    • Really? How come I didn’t get that email this morning
      • also didn’t get anything, either by email or Interfolio (possibly they didn’t appreciate reading my application, which, fair enough!)
      • Same. I've heard nothing [x7]
    • My email (from comment above) was sent through Interfolio. It's also possible that they are only cutting those people now who they know they will not contact in the event that they need to go back to the applicant pool?
      • Or maybe they're selecting one of the two positions first (for a particular subfield), moving through relevant folks fast (which is how they're already in finalist stage) and sending out rejections to folks that didn't make it the first round? Maybe just my wishful thinking.
    • My current working hypothesis is: poster above on Oct. 4 was (non-maliciously) mistaken about the position their friend applied for; a first cut has now been made and either a second cut will be made before letters are requested or letters will soon be requested. I don't mean to raise false hope; this is just a plausible version. (This kind of academic hiring Kremlinology is part of how I deal with opaque market chaos.) x2
    • [17 Oct] Received rejection email with same text as above. Sender acknowledged that "I am resending the October 12 email because some have communicated that the did not receive it." x7
      • Very odd wording in this follow-up email, complete with multiple typos and quoted text. Struck me as an exceptionally vague rejection (and I've gotten my fair share of them) because it doesn't actually say "you are no longer in the running" (or some variant thereof). I can't help but wonder if there's an inside candidate? How in the world could they be interviewing finalists already for 2 positions in under 2 months?
      • Yeah, it was weird and extremely curt.
    • [Oct 30] I heard the campus visits started today. So they really went through the process quite fast.
      • Wild! I'm very curious to hear how it turns out and if anyone has any insight into the process. Please keep us poor academic Kremlinologists in the loop!
    • [Dec 20] I received a really lovely phone call with a rejection after a campus visit in November. I was told that two offers had been made and accepted and that there'd been four of us total invited to visit campus.

    • Did you get a notification or just see your Interfolio update?
    • not op but I received an email then confirmed on interfolio
    • I just saw a request update on Interfolio; no email or notifications
    • I would assume that if they are actually longlisting you they would email or contact you directly; they probably opened up an additional document slot on the application, but are inviting specific candidates to fill it. So if you did not get an email, you're probably out.
    • Your assumption probably is incorrect (also somewhat toxic). Interfolio allows hire managers to request additional materials from only longlist/shortlisted candidates. Candidates who received a prompt request on Interfolio shouldn't just ignore it and automatically give up their application two days past the Oct 15 deadline.
    • Not sure if this is helpful, but I got an Oct. 17 request (Interfolio email) but also submitted my application really early. The deadline for materials is also Nov. 1st... So maybe they haven't worked through all of the applications or made all their requests for apps received closer to the deadline yet? Who really knows though. Anyway, good luck.
    • im not sure this ^ is true - I submitted my application the day before the deadline and received an email notification from interfolio.

[Nov 14] Request for further materials.

  • I haven't received any emails but my Interfolio becomes incomplete and said because I need to submit more materials, what does this possibly mean? [Nov 14]
  • Not sure. It could mean the e-mail did not go through or went to spam or whatever, or it could mean they opened up the additional sections in interfolio to everyone instead of just those from whom they requested additional material, which does happen more than it should and is confusing and upsetting. FWIW interfolio shifted to incomplete for me as well and I did not get an e-mail request for further materials. [15 Nov]
  • [15 Nov] Email received that there was a glitch in Interfolio. It says that every candidate individually will be notified in coming days about their status. I assume some will receive a request for additional materials, but the Interfolio glitch opened the system up for additional materials from everyone. It says to not upload the additional materials at this time until they send you an email requesting them specifically from you.

Additional positions will be in democracy and technology policy, politics, and governance broadly construed.

However, in other contexts they are essential contributors to democratic organization, participation, and institutional effectiveness. Successful candidates will both understand these challenges and think about paths forward in enabling democratic participation, governance, and efficacy.
  • We welcome applicants from political science, public policy, international affairs, computational social science, digital humanities, or related fields. Successful candidates will have demonstrated expertise in the intersection of technology and democracy, a robust research agenda, significant experience or commitment to teaching and a dedication to education innovation, and the desire and capacity to support the interdisciplinary mission of the college, university, and the experiential liberal arts. Candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive environments.
