* University of New Orleans - Oct 20 (received generic rejection email stating an offer has been extended). This is quite confusing. On Oct 20th, second-round candidates were interviewing. We received an email notification for a second round of interviews on Oct 13th. So, it's kind of disconcerting to believe that an offer was made the same day we were asked to interview in front of the search committee. Not saying the person who added this is not being truthful, but I do wonder if an offer was actually made??

General Discussion, Questions, and Inquiries

List NEW information at top. Please post "Have you heard?" questions above, under Word on the Street

  • Q: Can someone clarify which position the Georgetown rejections above refer to? The TT Georgetown position hasn't closed yet, right? Thanks. R1: I am curious, too. If the two rejections are indeed referring to the Modern & Contemporary Latin American TT position, I'd like to know when did they submit the application. R2: Check this: https://jobs.chronicle.com/job/375984/provost-s-distinguished-faculty-fellow-and-assistant-professor-of-afro-caribbean-afro-latinx-studies/
  • Hi! Any former applicants that know what generally committees look for in linguistics: NS vs NNS, young vs old people, male vs female, etc? Also what’s the succeed rate in your experience? Thx! R1: Each dept. will have their own needs, that is, if they already have a lot of NS professors in linguistics and they are looking for a diverse perspective on second language acquisition, hiring a NNS with near-native proficiency might suit their needs best. This could also be true for male vs. female and young vs. old, etc. All in all, the hiring process will first start by considering each candidate's achievements and materials, and then from there the effort to diversify the department could come towards the very end when they are speaking about the outcome of the 9-12 candidates included in the Zoom interviews or the 2-4 candidates invited to the on-campus interviews. However, know that academic achievements definitely outweigh gender, age, or native status... if you are not very good, but have a lot to offer in diversity, they will not hire someone with an empty CV. Thoughts from anyone else? R2: My two humble cents are to second what R1 said above, especially regarding the particular needs of a program or department. Sometimes it's hard to gauge this from the side of the applicant, especially when the ad reads like a wishlist more than an actual person, but hey, I've been told that sometimes committees don't know what they are looking for exactly either. R3: I do not agree with R1. Sometimes committees do not consider academic achievements first, but rather they look for a specific profile in terms of gender, age, native status... and then they select their candidates for the Zoom interview based on that. I know first hand that some committees have not even considered male applicants from the beginning, despite their achievements. If the committee's priority is to hire a diverse candidate, that will be their main criteria and they will choose the best candidate among those that have the desired "personal" profile (by personal I mean non-academic). I am not saying that this is what always happens but it does happen sometimes.
  • Anyone else worried/wondering why there barely seems to be any linguistics jobs? R1: Totally. I am VERY worried about this. Is this even normal? R2: I agree that there seems to be a lot more literature/cultural studies positions this year compared to linguistics, but please know that this is not the only website where jobs are posted... R3: I've noticed that too, and I'm very worried. I've been looking daily at other websites (MLA, Chronicle of Higher Education, etc.), but the Hispanic/Spanish Linguistics jobs that are available/posted are few.
  • Hello users! I modified a line on the "Rejection" category to reflect the number of rejections for the UNO position (I was rejected too) rather than adding individual lines for the same rejection. This helps with readability as we don't have to scroll infinitely to find new/updated info. Similarly, when adding new info, please list the newest info above any existing line. Thank you and I hope it helps!
  • Does anyone know if there is a place other than this site to monitor the application process of other applicants? It's my first year applying for a faculty position and I am really scared of the whole process. I would love to have other people to talk about this and share our experience. R1: The less you know, the better for your peace of mind. Send your applications, wait 3-4 weeks, and if by the end of them you haven't heard anything, you're most likely right in thinking that they won't contact you and just move on. R2: Thank you for the advice, 3-4 weeks after the application closes or after you send it? R3: After the application period closes. That said, some universities take their sweet time, so don't be surprised if you hear from some schools even later - you never know! I've had multiple interview requests way after the fact - so late, in fact, that I had already accepted a job elsewhere. It happens more than you'd think. R4: I agree with R1. Committees are strange beasts and knowing who applies to what ultimately leads to comparisons which is awful for mental health during the job market cycle. Surround yourself with other people who are currently on the market, but, more to your point, here on the wiki we are competing against each other (to some degree). I can answer a question here and there but I def don't want to talk to you about a strategy for potentially landing a job. Others might disagree with this approach but this is my humble view. And yes, as R3 said, 3-5 weeks after the deadline closes. A committee ideally will wait until all apps are in before reviewing & contacting 1st round interviewees. R5: I understand what you mean R4, however, we all know how toxic academia is. If I got to know some of the applicants and how their processes go, I’m sure I’d feel empathy for them. For sure I’d rather get the job myself, but we are all on the same boat and we can all find our place hopefully. I wish everyone luck (including myself). R6: Not to forget how toxic the wiki gets once some people start getting frustrated about not landing a job. Not to discourage OP from checking out the Wiki, but even this page can be detrimental to your mental health.
  • Beware about the position at Ashland University: their website states that they're not accepting any new students for the B.A. in Spanish-Spanish Ed, which probably means that the position is as temporary as it can possibly be, in spite of being labeled as "Assistant Professor". Also, read this.
  • Does anybody know why Berea C is looking again for the same position posted last year? Is another TT position? I remember receiving an email that the position was filled. R1: It's not the same position. Last year's was a generalist. This year's is Latin American. My guess is that they hired someone and now they are looking for someone with complementary interests. Q: Anyone else notice they're requiring "native Spanish"? Typo? R2: The more "woke" the more conservative they end up being... wouldn't be surprised if they are tokenizing while looking for some whiter flesh.
  • CORNELL UNIVERSITY: Just a heads up for everyone applying for the Cornell job, the Spanish section is super toxic. It's bleeding professors and grad students for a very good reason. There are multiple Title IX's against the DGS (she's on sabbatical this year supposedly).
  • Has anyone heard anything from the Stirling Lecturer position? Mucha suerte a todos!
  • Hi all! There are TWO jobs in Jacksonville: one at Jacksonville University (private) and one at the University of North Florida (public). An editor got confused and tried to merge the two entries on here. Just want to make sure everyone knows that these are two separate opportunities, both open specialization, so be sure to apply to both if interested. I put in the not duplicate language to hopefully prevent a second well-intentioned person from deleting again. R1: Thanks for the info!
