Initially, job and postdoc listings that specify international
relations as one of the target fields will be posted here. Currently we
have a IR
Fellowship List Fall 2005 post and a Fall
2006 post as well as an IR
Job List Fall 2006 post. Please note that this is not a
clearinghouse; jobs are primarily from the APSA
ejobs list. If you have a job listing that we don't have that is
NOT on APSA ejobs, please email us or leave a comment on that post. You can subscribe to the IR Rumor Mill Atom/RSS
feed and thereby find out about IR jobs and postdocs throughout the
year. Once shortlists are generated (and we are informed about them),
those will also be posted as individual entries and linked from an IR
Job Rumors Fall 2006 post (not created yet).
You can see the how the process works in the IR
Fellowship Rumors Fall 2005 post, which we are currently updating
as rumors come in. Please contribute!
How can I contribute?
If you have a rumor regarding job or fellowship offers that have been
made already, post a comment to the appropriate Rumor entry, e.g. the IR
Fellowship Rumors Fall 2005 post. If you have information about a
fellowship or job that we don't have on a list, post it to the the
appropriate List entry, e.g. the IR
Job List Fall 2006 entry. If you have more specific information on
a job or fellowship already posted (what a particular department is
looking for, the makeup of the search committee, etc.), e.g. you know
something about the Adelphi
University job, post it to that specific entry. You can also send
email straight to IRRumorMill AT gmail DOT com.
What are the comment posting rules? How can I be anonymous?
Please keep your comments short and informative. The idea is to post
information, not opinions. Got a strong opinion? Great! Start your own blog
and link to the entry if you like. No profanity, please. We'd like to
keep the comments open to all, but if the comments are abused, we'll
have to limit them. Anonymous comments are the default! However,
some participants have chosen to use persistent
pseudonyms instead of submitting anonymous comments so that the
community can get a better sense of the veracity of the rumors. Just
select "Other" when you leave your comment and type in your pseudonym.
Even better, create an account on blogger.com (owned by Google, so you
may want to grab the namespace in any case!) and your pseudonym
will be password-protected.
Who are you guys, anyway?
