IR Job Rumors Fall 2006 (March 2006 Comments)

[2006-03-06] Please restrict postings here to information on interviews, offers, and acceptances (or queries for information). For general discussions of the job market, including salaries, please use the IR Job Market Discussion post (see sidebar). For discussions as to the merits (or lack thereof) of this blog, please use the IR Rumor Mill Discussion (see sidebar) thread.

[2006-03-06] Participants are requested not to post rumors regarding how and why individual candidates or departments have made decisions, especially containing personal information; if you wish to discuss these matters, the IR Discussions blog may be a better place.

[2006-02-06] To prevent too many comments from building up, periodically a new post that summarizes all the comments will be placed at the top of the blog; to view old comments, see the posts from [October 16-November 17], [November 18-December 17], [December 18-February 06], and [February 07-March 05], which contain old comments.

[2006-01-28] Additional rumor mills have been independently started, for American and Comparative Politics as well as Political Theory and Public Law. Cross-posting of CP information is probably a good idea, since a significant fraction of CP and IR jobs overlap (unlike CP and AP or IR and AP).

[2005-12-17] New column added to list whether a job has been filled (and by whom if the information exists).

[2005-12-03] An increasing number of Comparative Politics posts are being made. While only posts that refer to jobs in the IR Job List Fall 2006 will be added to the master table below, contributors should feel free to post information about CP jobs, since there is substantial overlap.

[2005-11-20] To prevent comments being lost, please post all rumors here rather than on the individual rumor postings. Comments have been turned off on these postings.

[2005-11-20] Please use discretion when posting rumors of offers or acceptances; if possible, only post an offer if it is public knowledge.

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 Rumors link will take you to the rumor posting. If there is a link but no date in the Rumors column, no substantive information (e.g., a list of interviewees) has been received; dates are updated when new rumors appear. The table is sorted from most recent to oldest rumor.

[C] appears next to dates when additional posts appear to confirm an initial rumor of interviews. If you have independent confirmation of interviews being conducted at a university that does not have a [C] or a list of candidates, please post a comment. A [?] appears if information disputing a rumor of interviews has occurred.

Why this obsession with Slantchev and his offers or lack of offers thereof?

Anonymous said...

Press is the big deal in the Dartmouth situation; he's probably the best junior "hard security" person out there. Lind is his wife, so they're trying to make it a package deal.

Anonymous said...

If true, Press and Lind are also the strange part about that Dartmouth rumor. For those of you unfamiliar, Press *left* Dartmouth last year to go to Penn because (from what I understand) they wouldn't make an offer to his wife. Not sure what could have changed so dramatically in one year. Never underestimate the inefficiencies of the academic job market. . .

Who care. Tell us more about Slantchev.

I heard Dartmouth gave up all their draft picks in 2007 for him. Slantchev is clearly a blue chipper who really wowed at the combine.

Slantchev had great time in the 40 and had a top score on his Wonderlich test. He has the explosiveness and power to be a franchise player.

But one Committee who studied his game film remains unimpressed--his great workouts didn't seem to translate into points on the field.

UCSD got a good haul of draft picks in this deal and will improve the team by surrounding starter Phillip Rivers with some young talent.

Anonymous said...

Actually, I heard that he flubbed the Wonderlich the first time he took it.

Anonymous said...

I heard that one of the 'superstars' on the IR market this year scored a 6 on the Wonderlic. Although the person gave a fantastic job talk in early January (outperforming two other candidates from a UC school), a score that like makes you wonder about their ability to continue to produce in a more complex system. Seems risky, to me.

Anonymous said...

I heard that Slantchev is on steroids. With the ISA starting to crack down with random testing at the annual meeting, he's going to have to lay low on the juice for a while. I wonder how that will affect his work. Suspicious eyes have also been cast at Schultz, Koremenos, and Baum. Seems that there was a southern cal ring in operation for the last 5 years. Makes you wonder how this young crop of IR scholars is going to be viewed in 20 years…

Re: 12:02 comment, this begs the question "if one did not do IR would one do another type of political science or something else entirely". the answer may say something about the division in the field-- i.e. policy vs. science approaches.

On pre/post docs, to the best of my (relatively well sourced) knowledge, Olin, Belfer, Cisac, and Yale have not contacted successful applicants yet. Olin is expected to do so next week and cisac in a couple of weeks. Belfer normally doesn't happen till well into April. No idea on when Yale is likely.

Sort of a random quesion, why is the cost of living so high in Fairbanks, Alaska? CNN/Money posted a list of the most expensive US citites and Fairbanks is higher(more expensive) than Chicago, Philadelphia, and Seattle. Based on a "moderately affluent lifestyle", you would need about 167K in Manhattan, 116K in DC area, and 104K in Fairbanks (Chicago is 103K). The full list is at

http://money.cnn.com/2006/03/14/pf/couple_cities_coli/index.htm

Anonymous said...

I'm no economist, but I assume Fairbanks is expensive b/c of the costs of transporting goods there and the cost of home heating. Also, since Alaska is pretty sparse for population, the labor cost that goes into locally produced goods (homes, etc.) and services may be high. Any Wal-Marts there may actually have to pay a decent wage.

Anonymous said...

anyone know if olin offers have been made

Anonymous said...

Re: Fairbanks
Do not forget to factor in the oil dividend if you are serious about trying to figure out if you can make it financially in Alaska. Each year every qualified (lived in Alaska for at least one year) citizen gets a check from the state that shares the oil revenue. In past years it has ranged from $800 to aomost $2000. So do the math, if you have a wife and a kid, $2400- almost $6000 to supplement your salary. Combine that with no state income tax and the sticker shock is ameliorated a bit.

Dartmouth just hired Jennifer Lind and Darryl Press.

I heard this from a current grad student at Penn, who heard this directly from Press, so it's not just a rumor.

Dartmouth also still has an offer extended to Slantchev. They now have something like 8 IR people. Didn't they hire Bridget Coggins this year, too??

About Towson: why on earth do they require of applicants an UNDERgraduate transcript? Many of us are 30+ yrs of age and UG is a distant memory. Is it a screening tool? (i.e., I won't be able to complete my application to Towson unless I am willing to contact my UG institution and pony up the money for an official transcript to be sent to Towson -- so I really must be into Towson if I've bothered to do so?) I know that Towson's not the only school that does this (maybe Shippensburg too? can't recall), but it is rather unusual.

Re: 5:27 PM, March 04, 2006 (why are UCSD faculty leaving)?

The response was that it's because UCSD is a top department (which it is) but it's not like Slantchev and Gleditsch are being poached by Harvard or Rochester. You have to worry when Dartmouth and Essex steal your faculty and you're a top 10 department.

Anonymous said...

Didn't Gleditsch have personal reasons for leaving, wanting to be with a spouse? It may not have anything to do with how the Department is being run. Horse-race and knee-capping of Departments certainly can go too far. Oh, the Department must be terrible because a couple of people left. Whatever.

What's amazing is how many good people are at Dartmouth? It's in New Hampshire, 2 1/2 hours from Boston and no grad program!!!!

Anonymous said...

While the previous poster is correct to recognize that the sky is hardly falling, I think the implication is that UCSD has not made much of an effort to retain top junior faculty and has, on occasion, snubbed them in ways that eliminate good will.

This is speculation based on previous posts. Olin has offered a post-doc to at least one person ...so it probable that they have have offered acceptances to others (notification can't be time intensive since their are so few). CISAC should be notifying successful applicates this week or next. Belfer sometime in the middle of April. No information on Mershon.

olin don't do second rounds so if you haven't heard you haven't got it. i'm almost certain that all the offers are made the same day. Rejection letters usually go out around now.

by the way, the benefit in knowing names for olin is to see if there are any patterns to the offers. for instance, there seems to be a chicago, harvard, and columbia slot most years. if this holds it impacts on what you may think your chances are in the future. i also don't see the downside in an offer being revealed.

This discussion, while important, belongs in the Rumor Mill discussion thread--not here on the job rumors thread. So can we move it over there, please?

Is it too early to ask, who are the hot prospects for next fall?

Regarding the post at 4:14, since few if any people will have a clue as to everyone who will be on the market next year, let alone their relative merits, I propose we just let hiring committees make those evaluations since they will have the most complete information. Moreover, unless evaluaters are identified so that we can attach levels of credibility to the evaluations, I wouldn't put much credence in any predictions here anyway.

What does it mean by a *NEW* offer? Does it mean Ahmer Tarar declined the Chicago offer?

"If the CU Boulder candidate has accepted, can you tell us his/her name?"

While I am uncomfortable giving a name without this person's consent--A little detective work and you can figure it out on your own. SUNY Binghamton has two IR candidates on the job market (both have now been placed) and one of the candidate's has her placement listed on her homepage.

as far as i know it just means that tarar's offer has only now really become an offer (admin approval etc). before there was a vote, not an offer.
