Word on the Street[]

Anyone hear from Dean College?

Any offers received yet for any of the University of Toronto Mississauga positions? x 2

  • Also, wondering what it takes to qualify for an interview by University of Toronto? I am not Canadian nor permanent resident and I applied as an ABD. Unsurprisingly, I received a rejection.
    • Sounds like they actually have really supportive structures for new hires to get permanent residency pretty quickly (compared to US processes) and much of their faculty is not from Canada originally. The hiring committee is required to justify why they're hiring a non-Canadian, though.
    • I saw on Twitter that someone accepted an an offer as assistant professor (mid/late march)

Has anyone heard from Samford University? https://www.higheredjobs.com/faculty/details.cfm?JobCode=177345127&Title=Assistant%20Professor%20of%20English%20%289%2Dmo%2DTT%29
