IR Job Rumors Fall 2006

A reminder to readers: all content in rumor entries comes from submissions; without comments or direct emails to irrumormill at gmail dot com, we can't post anything useful.

This post will be updated as rumors come in, but will not necessarily appear at the top every time a new rumor appears; a permanent link to this post appears in the sidebar for easy reference.

Got a rumor on which school have invited candidates to interviews or have sent out job offers? Post a comment here. Names of candidates are not necessary, but can be useful.

Please include some information on the source of your knowledge that will allow others to evaluate your information. Are you a member of the department interviewing? A friend or colleague of a candidate? Please be as specific in your information and sources as possible (while maintaining anonymity if you wish).

Want to see a list of jobs? See the IR Job List Fall 2006 entry.

Note: The Institution links will take you to the original job posting; the Interviews/Job Talks and Offers/Accepts links will take you to the Interview or Offers postings. New postings are added when substantive information (e.g. a list of interviewees) is received; dates are updated when new rumors appear. The table is sorted from most recent to oldest rumor.

New: [C] appears next to dates when additional posts appear to confirm an initial rumor. If you have independent confirmation of an interview list that does not have a [C] or a list of candidates, please post a comment.

New: If you have complaints, comments, or suggestions (about this blog), please post a comment on the IR Rumor Mill Discussion post rather than here. If you would like to complain or discuss the job market itself, please post a comment on the IR Job Market Discussion post rather than here.

Third person....Susan Hyde accepted an offer from Yale.

Anonymous said...

If true, then congratulations and all credit to Susan Hyde. By making a quick decision, she's increased the chances that other schools that wanted to hire her will consider hiring other candidates. The market really gets screwed up when a "hot" candidate prolongs a decision, keeping several schools waiting.

It *is* true that Steven Wilkinson will interview at Ohio State; he is currently up for tenure at Duke.
