[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.
