Asst Prof5/5/2017long list of 12 determined (from 171 applicants) (2) were those selected notified? no (3) It seems like they are taking longer than expected - the first job talk appears to have been scheduled for this Thursday (10-27), and now is canceled (4) invites sent (5) Looks like only 3 were invited? (6) It looks like only 3 have been scheduled so far but perhaps they do not have all the titles/abstracts yet. (6) 5 candidates have been invited for interviews (7) hmm, looks like some assistant professors might be in the running? (8) yes, there are 2 assistant profs on the short list, but one withdrew (9) Notes recovered from November 22nd backup (10) received notification that they are making an offer to an alternative candidate (12/14) (11) rejection received x6 (12) does "alternative" mean someone from outside the search, or just another candidate besides yourself? 13) It probably just means it was offered to someone that wasn't you. 14) Rejection received 12/20 15) Has anyone else that applied for this (but not interviewed) NOT received a rejection letter? I haven't and it's making me wonder if I never actually got my application properly submitted 16) Did you receive an e-mail confirming that they received your application? - Just looked back in the archives and I did - perhaps it's just taking a few days for HR to get rejection letters out.16) I received a rejection email today (January 9.2017). I wonder why the rejection notices were staggered by weeks. 17) Sometimes there's a first screening (by HR or one of the SC), early rejections are sent out, then other applicants don't hear back until a final decision is made. 18) Offer formally accepted. ** M.

Assoc Prof4/19/2017Any updates for this one? 2) I haven't heard any word yet (x3), 3) Is there an update here? The date for latest update reads 4/6 but no new information has been entered in the comment box. 4) I applied for both the Water and Ecosystems position in the Engineering school and the onoe in the Eco school. Just heard back from the Engineering school, "We had an exceptionally large number of applicants, which the committee reviewed and discussed thoroughly. However, the decision was made not to extend an offer this year. We hope that a new announcement for this position will be made in the coming months for a position to be filled for next academic year."2

Asst Prof4/8/2017Dead link, job seach canceled? 2) Still posted on Uottawa job page 3) go to and click on "faculty of science," then click on "Science-Tenure track position." 3) Apparently they had some server issues and emails were bouncing, but they should be resolved. 4) Apparently the server issues were not resolved and some applications were never received. But, short list made already. 5) Does the 'short list' info come from someone whose referees were contacted for a letter? 6) I checked in with them regarding the status of this search and found out they had not received my application (due to server issues). They said they were already shortlisting people. 7) That sucks #6. Did they say they would review your app anyway? Wonder if they ever got mine... 8) #6 here - sometimes pays to check (but sooner!). I am surprised they are moving as fast as they are given how slow other searches are going but there you are! I am not sure if they will review it or not. 9) Just got an email telling me that they'd lost some applications due to server issues, I guess including mine, and that these applications would be forwarded onto the committee. Probably worth checking in if you applied and never got a confirmation 10) I'm confused. When you say they're shortlisting people, does that mean they've already been contacted? 11) Hmm, I received a confirmation but am now concerned they didn't get my app based on above comments. ;P The confirmation stated "Selected candidates will be contacted around mid-January" - has anyone been contacted? I haven't heard anything here yet. Idem here: I haven't heard anything here yet (Feb 21, 2017). I just heard that they are currently interviewing candidates.2

Full Prof3/28/20171) Received a letter today saying: "The University has made a strategic decision to suspend the current search, with a view to re-advertising in the near future with a significantly modified mandate". So failed search I guess? 2) Does anyone have more information on this, and whether they will be re-advertising -- maybe opening up to junior faculty????
6/17/2016University of TexasTexasIntegrative Biology8/31/2016
Asst Prof2/14/2017Wonder if applicant pool is smaller this year due to concealed firearms in classes. 1) I doubt so. This is a very attractive position. 2) Gunz is helthy fer lernin #icanhazfirearm 3) Interview dates are reserved on department seminar schedule for November 14-December 7th...should be a pretty fast turn around from submissions! 4) Nope - they had >200 applicants. Any updates? Anyone heard anything about this search? 5) Not me... 6) Their nwaterext faculty meeting is 10/11. They'll likely have a vote there on the short list since they are scheduled for a month from then. 7) Any word? 8) I have no info, but we never have a departmental vote on shortlists at our place, so I'm not sure I agree with #6. 9) Spoke with a faculty memeber who is not on the search committee- she has no idea if interview requests were sent out. Definitely not discussed at faculty meeting. 10) I've never heard of anyplace having the dept. discuss who gets an interview, much less vote on it. Not saying it never happens. But ordinarily it's entirely up to the search committee to decide who gets an interview. 11) I don't know, places that I am familiar with usually circulate dossiers of the short list to the department for comment (though the final decision is still made by the committee). 12) makes sense. any word on this one? 13) invited for campus interview 10/26 14) Six names are on the seminar schedule now, there are 7 candidates total. 15) 3 candidates had interviews, and there are 3 more. They try to make decisions before Christmas 16) offer has been made (apparently they might be hiring 2 people from this search) 17) Hey folks - I didn't apply for this job, but I work at a public texas school - apparently a hiring freeze was announced yesterday. Haven't had time to investigate it, but you should check it out 18) Yikes! I hope these people who got offers can squeak without this impacting them: 19) Possible, but this article suggests that universities are exempt because they receive very little state funding anyway (<30%) 20) I work at a University of Texas branch campus and unless the money for the position is coming from soft money, it will not be filled until at least September 2017. ...unless they filled it prior to the freeze.36

Asst Prof3/13/2017So where'd all the info that was here go? If someone is going to delete all the prior info, I expect some sort of heartcrushing update. XX)--> I downloaded the xlsx so here is what was deleted: Is this different from the job posted last year? 2) Yes, last year was an ecology position and they filled it. 3) Last year's search netted nearly 500 applications 4) holy moly! 5) Wow!!! 6) Odd that a small school isn't asking for a teaching statement! Just noticed that as I was prepping my app 7) I was surprised by that too -but it does state it's a research-focused position 8) should probably incorporate undergraduate teaching and mentorship philosophy into research statement 9) I asked the search chair, and she said to put it into research statement & cover letter - hard to do given the page limit! 10) If you had to read 500 applications you'd be strict about a page limit too. 11) Prob the most difficult application I've completed yet! 12) Heard this search got ~400 applicants 13) 11/3 letters requested (x9) 14) Were letters requested from applicants or did you hear from your letter writers? Email sent from chair to applicants. 15) Anyone know how many people were long-listed? 16) 400*8/31~=100. 17) Lol, that'd be quite the long list! 18) Just got an email requesting letters today on 11/10 x4 19) <--seems odd that some candidates were contacted later. any ideas why? 20) Skype interview on 11/22/2016 (x4) 21) Skype interview request on 12/1/2016 22) there must be two different groups working on this? Werid. 23) Any news? 24) campus interview scheduled 25) I had a Skype interview but no campus interview (or rejection for that matter) (x3).

I heard they sent emails if you were not being considered at this point.

Asst Prof1/27/2017Anyone notice the "This job is no longer available" on the job ad? Is the search off, or do they just close the ad early? <- I don't see this statement on the ad 3) , I also saw this when I applied, but it still went through, so not sure what's up 4) any word on this? 5) I don't know if it applies to general biology, but Stanford apparently will pull jobs if they don't like the list of applicants (i.e., the quality of the applicants - because this determines whether the school deems it a tenure-track or research appt. At least it is what they do in the medical biology end of things). 6) re "This job is no longer available": I've seen this on a bunch of ScienceCareers ads at various places. Probably just means the ad expired. 7) 3 here - I saw it like that before it expired though... at least before the deadline 8) Why don't one of you jsut email the admin person and check? Seems like a lot of discussion could be easily cleared up. 9) I emailed the admin person and she said that the search committee is still working on finalizing the short list (12/19) 10) Rejection email (1/12) x4 11) Invited for an on-campus interview (1/12) 12) Haven't heard anything, I see from the other position (below) some rejections take months to be sent out, any idea why? 13) occasionally searches dip back into their long short list if after the first interviews they don't converge on a preferred candidate. Some places (like mine) won't issue any rejections until candidate has accepted offer. Also-- are those the job candidates seminars listed on their website?17

I see one person at the right career stage on the seminar list, but no one else listed in the month following. Would be strange to schedule just one interview and it isn't uncommon to have postdocs in a seminar series normally. 4) Invitation for campus interview received (12/3). <~~ congrats!! 5) rejection email x 9 (12/5) 6) Rejection email.

Asst/Assoc Prof5/4/2017See "General Discussion" tab for discussion on this position. (i.e., too controversial for this "Notes" section since they withdrew an offer for the same search last year...). 2) Interestingly, reference letters are due on Nov 1st. 3) where does it say letters due Nov 1? I only saw Sept 15 in the advertisement. 3) one of my references sent me the email that she got as a proof. It defenetly says Nov 1st. 4) Applications are due the 15th but they'll accept letters of rec until Nov 1st. 5) I saw the Nov. 1 date on the letter sent to reference writers as well, as find it confusing because the ad explicitly states letters should arrive by Sept. 15. N) I'm tired of continually moving stuff from this posting -> put this type of stuff (e.g. 5 and 7) in the UPitt discussion in the General Discussion tab. 6) ex-5&7 moved Just received an affirmative action form? So I guess something is happeneing? 8) I received one as well x5 9) Actually, I didn't get a form attached in my email x5 10) It was a mass email - my initial email was blank but a follow-up email arrived, with form attached 11) I fail to see a 'submit' button, any one else got one on their form? 12) email in upper right corner of window in adobe acrobat 12) Nope, don't have a submit button nor any email link 13) Fill out form and digitally sign then e-mail to: 14) At least this year they sent out the form earlier. Last year they sent it prettynear when they invited the first candidates. 15) At least some interview invites sent x3 16) Wow, short-list is already determined? 17) 11 people being interviewed for the 3 positions. Interviews happening mid Nov- early Jan, decisions to be made end of Jan-ish. 18) Strange that letters were due after interviews scheduled.19) Have interviews started yet? 20) yes 21) Are interview seminars listed in their website? 22) no. 23) Rejection letter received 12/16 (x7), 300 applications 24) Offers have been made (for the 2 E&E, not sure for S) 25) Offer was made for S in Dec 25) 2 E&E offers accepted34
