  • 12/31: Any word re. the Tulane Professor of Practice of Expository Writing job? Not sure why this keeps getting deleted but would be interested to hear any word
    • I have still not heard back on this one. I think the deletions are a by-product of formatting screwiness; the visual editor is giving a lot of people trouble.

    • Same here

    • any campus visit updates?
    • Arkansas is doing a second round of campus visits.
    • Just a heads-up to be mindful if you're considering Arkansas State University. If you enter into contract with them, they will ask you to complete a "Restriction of Boycott of Israel Certification." The head of the search committee was also very disrespectful to the original candidate they offered the job to--there's little to no room to negotiate the offer.
      • Thank you for providing info like this. I'm not in the running for this position, but I'm curious...what exactly does a "Restriction of Boycott of Israel Certification" mean? Are they asking you to certify that you won't join or organize a boycott of Israel?
        • They are asking you to comply with Arkansas Code Annotated § 25-1-503.
          • In other words, yes, they are asking you to certify that you won't engage in a boycott of Israel. It's due to a state law, not a university policy, but the outcome is the same.

My previous contact with them was a 2nd round Zoom interview the first week of January; I'm unsure why the timeline was so lengthy, but the committee chair seemed frustrated with it so I believe it was either an admin issue or an offer that fell through.

      • I felt weird about being the only person to have contributed to the salary page, so I took mine down. Happy to add it back up if others contribute.
        • I'll be posting mine (continuing track NTT) soon; I only just accepted the verbal offer and the contract is not yet finalized. As soon as mine is posted, I'll add another note here letting folks know. Speaking of which--how do others feel about a new salary section for these NTT positions that come with longer contracts and rank, like Teaching Asst. Professor? There have been more and more of them posted, and they don't really fit within the tiers that are currently listed on the salary page. Just a thought.
  • 3/4: Request for Zoom interview, U of Pittsburgh (NTT, Teaching Assistant Prof of Public and Professional Writing).
    • Be aware of a toxic culture in that department. The department has also had a recent exodus of Black faculty members. The pay for NTT faculty members is abysmal.

  • 3/4: Request for interview for Georgia Tech (Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship) x2
