  • Nope, but I am mashing refresh on their seminar pages to see if they've started scheduling job talks yet. Alas, no news.
  • References checked late January, but nothing since then. Many job talks in several categories are now up on the seminar page.
  • Yes my references confirmed that, at least for the experimental fluids positions, the references were checked in January with the review to begin on Feb. 5. So far none of the talks going up seem to be experimental fluids except for a few that are professors elsewhere already, which would be unfortunate, given that the ad was looking for junior faculty. Oh well.
