Asst ProfTenure Track10/23/21 18:32They ran this search last this another position? Because it seemed in the comments like someone had been hired. 2) I applied and they said the job is filled, needs removed. AP) Plenty of people at Carleton are tweeting about this position in the last 24 hours, so it seems open. 2) I was just emailed less than an hour ago "You most likely discovered this post through a 3 party website. Unfortunately that position has been filled. Please keep an eye on our “Employment Opportunities” page for up to date job postings in the future." 4) Strange. I saw the posting because it was shared by a Carleton biology professor. The job ad comes from the University. 2) @4 yeah, super weird. Their employment opprotunity page shows no jobs, the job shows a recent date and the email I got in return makes me wonder where this communication breakdown is occuring. Update: I emailed back the person who told me the job is filled with the link to the post so it can be removed if it was uploaded in error. 5) Looks real to me? 6) Canadian post-doc here, I have seen several Carleton profs post this to their twitters, I have a hard time believing it to be a mistake. Plus, it says specifically in the add that this is part of a 'multi-year cluster hire', so it's likely not just a 'reapeat' of the search last year

They had similar search last year. 3) Can anyone offer insight on the department/college, with respect to how likely they are to hire someone who is in an E&EB subfield and doesn't work on marine systems? It seems like the Biology Department is very micro & human health oriented, and then the Marine & Environmental Sciences department offers for instance a BS in E&EB, but it seems super geared towards marine systems. x1 4) Would working across multiple EEB subfields be considered "cross-disciplinary" here? The 'prompts' are pretty specific, so wondering if it's worth spending the time revising all of my statements. 5) Any insights into the Review Date or timeline? 6) @4 I did not revise my statements - they are pretty close to their promts, but not exactly. I am guessing they will toss me on account of not being early career enough (despite never having had a permanent Asst Prof position) anyway, so wasn't going to invest a huge amount of time in revision 7) Does anyone know if reference letters are requested automatically when you apply? 8) I don't think mine were auto-requested when I submitted (I usually hear right away from one of my recommenders if something unforewarned shows up)5

Instead, it has an extended contract system which is more similar to tenure than it is to "fixed term". At WWC, you are on annual contracts for the first three years, then you get a 3 year contract after a successful 3 year review, followed by 7 year contracts after that. This position is a full-time, junior-level position in that extended contract system.

Asst ProfTenure Track10/22/21 13:233 letters due at time of submission 1) Welp, then not applying. x2 2) If I heard a postdoc say they weren't applying over that, I'd yell at them to pull up the cv and stand over them until they submitted. As annoying as it is, don't self sabotage. 3) As an Asst. Prof looking at moving, there is a subtle cost for every letter I request from a current colleague. So if I was on the fence, that actually would be enough to dissuade me from applying. Agree that as a postdoc, it probably shouldn't stop you ever. 4) Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I agree that asking for letters up front definitely stops me (a postdoc) from applying. Say a job gets 50 applicants and requires 3 letters each, thats 150 letters.. maybe ~10 get phone interviews and 3 get in-person interviews.. so as a hiring committee you've now wasted that time of 120-140ish people in your field. Multiply that by candidates applying for multiple positions.. that's not part of a system that I'm willing to contribute to2
