Feel free to keep others updated with any news about this year's job market.

[Bertrand here: let's reserve this thread for on-topic discussion of this year's market. I'll moderate from time to time and move any off-topic posts to the overflow thread.]

The Kansas State formal philosophy job just got taken down from PhilJobs and HigherEdJobs. The deadline was Nov 18. Anyone know what's up?

Philippa: the funding failed to come through. (Which isn't that much of a surprise, since Republican governor Sam Brownback's tax cuts several years ago fucked the state's finances up so badly that the Republican state legislature rebelled and reversed them.)

Had two interviews within the last week - Oregon and SDSU.

I got a rejection notice from TT job at Trinity College, The University of Dublin, AOS: preference for language. The email seems auto generated. So if you have not heard anything, you might be shortlisted!

Just wanted to say that I appreciate people noting specific schools that they have heard from, especially since the Phylo wiki is defunct.

Auckland has an offer out.

According to PhilJobs, Durham just hired someone doing Post-Kantian European philosophy. Does that mean their TT search for Post-Kantian philosophy is already concluded? (The deadline to apply was Nov 10...)

I don't have any inside information, but my guess is: mostly like not. The person announced being hired on his blog back in February, while the application was just posted in September.

St. Norbert College has now scheduled Skype interviews.

Gettysburg made their preliminary cut last week.

Pythagoras

Did they send out PFOs to people who did (or didn't) make the cut?

Huang

They asked for letters from the references provided. So, many will probably make that cut and not know it. Likewise, many won't make it and won't know they didn't. My admin just told me they were requested.

Thanks!

Huang

but how do you know they did not request everyone's letters?

I read the job ad.

I am Huang, sorry.

I'm on a search committee looking through applications, and I have to say: it's amazing how many 'experts' in feminist philosophy have materialized all of a sudden!

Gaston

I'm an applicant looking through job ads, and I have to say: it's amazing how many departments are interested in feminist philosophy to the exclusion of broader philosophical interests all of a sudden!

Gaston

I read the job ad.

for fuck's sake, let there be one useful thread here, and do your whining somewhere else...

Toby

Any other interviews scheduled?

Gaunilo

61 day(s) ago

It's still a little early, although I'd expect to start hearing back from search committees soon (for the November 1st deadlines).

Betty

I wish someone would just maintain the wiki. It was a nice resource.

Judah

56 day(s) ago

The wiki appears to be largely operational anyway. Its coverage isn't as complete (yet) as in years past, but plenty of jobs are listed there, and being updated.

Hermann

52 day(s) ago

PFO from University of Kent.

Hsi

50 day(s) ago

PFO from UC, Colorado Springs

Nathaniel

50 day(s) ago

Don't get too disappointed everyone, but Nazarbayev University has sent out interview requests. So if you haven't heard from them, you can probably give up on your dream of moving to Kazakhstan.

Luigi

49 day(s) ago

Acc. to Phylo, Notre Dame has scheduled interviews.

Susan

48 day(s) ago

PFO from Gettysburg.

Ended with this gem: "It is moving to see at close hand what the coming generation of philosophers has to offer!"
