this mill is as good as the rumors people post. which means either searches are proceeding slowly this year, or people are not disclosing. either way, it will all be over soon. fall where the chips may...

Anonymous said...

I just received a letter from Northern Illinois University, the relevant portion of which runs:
"the assistant professor search for which you applied has been closed and a new faculty search for an open rank position has commenced". The letter makes it clear that they prefer a senior candidate.

Anonymous said...

addendum to just posted (I hadn't read to the bottom of the letter yet):
If you applied for the assistant professor position at Northern Illinois, and still want to be considered for the open rank search (they haven't ruled out hiring at the assistant level), then you can be. So don't panic. But chances just got dramatically lower.

why is the rumor mill so slow this year? is nothing happening or are people boycotting?

And any word on MIT?

IR Rumor Mill said...

Fewer jobs. If you look at last year, there were a LOT of gaps in rumors. The effect of those gaps are magnified when there's less to report on period.

We have been less aggressive about emailing scholars at interviewing institutions, as that was time consuming and more often unproductive than not.

IR Rumor Mill said...

Yes, there is word on MIT... but posted on the older thread. Check the tally board.

Based on the wiki ~220 IR jobs last yr, ~40 this year (with some cancellations).

Anonymous said...

But the wiki this year is missing many IR jobs that were posted on APSA. So this year's wiki isn't very representative of the actual number of job openings.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone heard anything about the Harvard Academy fellowships?

Anonymous said...

10:04, I KNOW that last year the wiki was not rep either. So, just ballpark figures for both, but still a daunting dropoff, no matter how you look at it. Plus, we are all seeing this as at least a 2+ yr trend, so you add to the equation, many outside academia or 2-4 yr asst profs realize that this is a window of op to transition, adding more quality to the overall pool, and this is a 'perfect storm' working against all of us, but particularly PhD Candidates outside the top 12 (or 15) institutions.

Anonymous said...

I couldn't quite follow that last post. In particular, if the job market is so bad, why would this constitute any type of "window of opportunity" for junior faculty to move? If anything, junior faculty should be hunkering down where they are and praying they get tenure.

Anonymous said...

Maybe move this to "discussion"...but since there's few rumors...12:56 I know quite a few asst profs who would like to make the move now (half way to tenure), and are trying as this mkt probably won't get better for at least 2, probably 4, years. To my knowledge, the logic is that it's easier to make this transition prior to tenure (otherwise, other variables involved including higher pay), but maybe others more informed could comment. Many thus see this as the beginning of this downturn, and are trying to seize upon ANY opportunity to transition now (worst case, they still have a job). If the mkt was like last yr, there wouldn't be the pressure to keep dropping your eggs in every basket possible. Obviously, those at mid to top R1s may be better served strategically by doing as you suggested (staying and focus on tenure).

I got a rejection from Valpo saying that they'd narrowed it down to a long short list of about 10, which I was on, but that they'd invited other people on that list out to interview, and would likely offer the job to one of those people, but thanks for my interest and my good application ...

can you people please weigh in on whether it is NOW safe to assume that anyone who was ever going to be called off of a short list has by now already been contacted? not complaining, just need to try to get motivated to pursue the other options for next year.

of course one can always keep one's hopes up, past christmas, new year's, and well into the spring when rejection letters will start to trickle in, but when is it actually reasonable to assume this is over if one still has not been contacted??

my sense is that 1.5 months past the deadline is a decent rule of thumb...

Last year I had one phone interview in October and then nothing else until January. In January, I received a campus invite from the same place I had the phone interview (in Oct.). From Jan-March I had 5 invites for on campus interviews for tenure-track positions. At least two of these had deadlines in October.

So, don't lose hope yet!

well, if you are interested/have applied to policy programs (SIPA, NYU, U of Washington, etc.), then don't give up yet. i don't think these places have made calls yet. correct me if i am wrong.

Based on last year's market, I'd have to agree that it is not time to give up hope yet. I had a good number of calls for interviews or to gauge if I was still on the market in December and January after hearing very little in October & November. I even had a few schools contact me in February.

Anonymous said...

Harvard IS still hiring this year; up to three lines were given to the Govt Dept by the Deans because of "critical needs."

Lyall has one of these offers.

Anonymous said...

That is bad information about Harvard. See yesterday's Boston Globe:

"Department heads and professors have put in hundreds of hours of work for faculty searches - combing resumes, preparing reports to the deans, negotiating, and persuading colleagues of individuals' merits - only to see the positions disappear.

"To see all of this work, if not gone to waste, not coming to fruition in any foreseeable future is terribly frustrating," said Nancy Rosenblum, chairwoman of the government department, which had been slated to hire four professors."

Thus: Harvard is not hiring.

Anonymous said...

^ From the same article:

"The 720-member Faculty of Arts and Sciences was once able to pick off the brightest doctoral students from universities around the world without thinking twice. But now, Harvard's largest academic body, which grew by 13 percent in the last five years, will only commit to filling 15 of its 50 tenure-track openings for next year - strangling the core mission of the university and sending an insidious message across academia."

Maybe the Govt dept has a claim on 1 or more of those 15 slots?

Okay, everyone- it's pretty darn clear that Harvard is NOT hiring. Even if it were hiring, how many people really give a crap? That's one or two highly competitive jobs, open mostly to advanced, superstar assistants.

Also, for future job seekers, even though no one knows with certainty what the situation will be like next year, the following statement by Yale's President that was sent around on Tue via e-mail might be of interest: "[W]e will continue to recruit faculty. Authorized searches in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences will proceed, and the deans in each of the professional schools will work with the Provost to strengthen their faculties. We do not want to lose the momentum of recent years, and we believe that it will be to Yale’s long-run advantage to continue to recruit outstanding and diverse faculty. This said, we will need to be judicious in authorizing new positions and filling vacancies, and departments will have to make a strong case for searches that are not yet authorized."

In re: Lewis & Clark, I don't have any inside information but my sense is that this means they are re-opening the search and would at least like to allow for more files to hit the pool. Given the general state of the job market, they can expect a lot more high quality applicants at this point--not that they didn't have high-quality applicants to begin with!

Re: Lewis & Clark - check earlier comments in this thread. Looks like they had an offer out that was turned down, so are reopening the search.

RE: Lewis and Clark

I wasn't sure if the earlier comment on the offer was for Poli Sci or Intl Affairs- Much like the Puget sound info doesn't differentiate between the poli sci job and the separate IPE job. Either way, I figured the L&C thing was a budget issue. But who knows? If they're hoping for a bigger pool then that would mean the earlier applicants didn't make the cut in my mind.

The Wiki has Oregon State in the 'interviews scheduled' section. Any more info than that? The wiki is kind of hard to trust.

Info on Willamette is also useful (Oregon theme here).

Both Standford and Iowa State have canceled their searches.

Is that supposed to read "Stanford?" I applied for that job and did not receive notification of its closure.

RE Oregon State, are you asking for info on whether they actually are conducting interviews or whether they made a decision?

I think I posted this in the wrong place before...

The International Relations Department at Boston University has reopened its search for an IR position with an emphasis on negotiation. (One change: It is no longer "open rank," but rather tenure-track assistant professor.) BU has been hiring this year, so this is a real job! Please circulate to everyone who might be a good fit.

The Department of International Relations at Boston University invites applications for a position at the rank of assistant professor from International Relations specialists able to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in international negotiation. Substantive area of expertise is open and may include conflict resolution, trade, finance, and the environment, among others. Successful candidates will be active research scholars who are committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Publications and teaching experience required. Ph.D. must be completed by the time of appointment. The salary will be commensurate with record and experience. Please submit CV, graduate transcripts, samples of written work, and three current letters of recommendation to: Chairman, Negotiation Search Committee, Department of International Relations, Boston University, 152 Bay State Road, Boston, MA 02215. For full consideration, applications must be received no later than February 15, 2009. Boston University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

To !:15 on 1/23...where is the evidence in the job posting that this BU asst. prof job is Tenure Track?? Would love to know if you have confirmation that it is a tenure track posting or if you are just assuming it is b/c the language in the ad itself does not mention anything about tenure track.

What's going on with the 5 or so Yale offers?

RE Oregon State, I was curious if the interview rumour was true (it's listed as R on the Tally Board last I checked). If it is then if an offer has been extended that would be interesting information as well.

The Oregon State interview rumor is true. I don't know if they've made an offer or not yet. Source: Friend of candidate

Re OSU, no offer yet.
