Several posts are advertised with open or very mixed specialties; seems a good idea to list them somewhere centrally rather than on each individual 'specialty' page.

University of Central Florida[]

  • Assistant or Associate Professor in Digital and Public History beginning in August 2011
  • Expanding their offerings in new media
  • Deadline: November 26, 2010
  • They are not interviewing at AHA, but will conduct telephone interviews in January. Applicants have not been contacted yet. 12/23/2010
  • January is almost over....has anyone heard anything from them? (1/26)
  • Nothing yet (1/28)
  • Sent an email to the search committee chair. He responded with, "Because of search guidelines at UCF, all I can say is that the search is still going on." I am not sure what his statement means. Has anyone heard anything that might clarify his statement? (2-16-2011)
  • I don't have any information about this search, but would interpret that as a coded statement that the search has bentil an offer has been made and accepted.en narrowed. Some schools (including another one in Florida) are not allowed to give applicants who are no longer under consideration ANY information about a search until an offered has been made and accepted, which of course can be months after an initial long list has been generated. (2/23)
  • UCF sends out the most offensive form rejection letters. The faculty in general are incompetent interviewers and seem to have little understanding that interviewing and jobs talks actually involve asking questions on their part.This school claims it is the 2nd biggest in the nation--as if that makes the school a player in academia--NOT. As long as its faculty act like a small-time circus in dealing with candidates, they will stay small-time. good luck with actually becoming a player. anybody thinking of getting a job here--consider how many faculty are actually professors despite being at the school for years and years. something like 3. do they ever promote anyone to professor? guess people like staying associate professors for 15 years.
