Rank Open4/11/2015Rejection stating they have a long short list of 33 out of 343 applications received (x7). 2. No rejection = long list? Email or snail-mail rejections? Email rejections - my lab mate got theirs several hours after I got mine. I got one on the morning of Sept. 29 (x1), morning of Sept. 30 (x4), afternoon of Sept 30th (x4). They sent out the email requesting letters from the short-long-list this morning (Oct 1) Began evaluating letters of rec on October 12. Some interviews are beginning to be scheduled. Interviews are scheduled. Rejections sent to short-long-list folks who didn't get interviews (Oct 31). 11/09 scheduled campus talks available on department website ( 4/11 - heard through the grapevine that an offer was made. Failed search.

Asst Prof4/4/2016I thought interviews were scheduled for this position? why was it deleted? 2. I believe they want to complete on-campus interviews by Thanksgiving. 3. Has a short-list been developed then? 4. I am going to interview (x2). Based on my information I think they are interviewing 4 people (interviewing 8). No phone interviews. 5. First job talk was on 10/20 6. Is there a list of who is interviewing anywhere? 7. WHO INTERVIEWED FOR THIS JOB??? 8. Even the people who interviewed don't know! 9. Come on internet. Someone must have super internet skills/know someone at Penn who has this info. 10. Any info on when the offer is going to be made? 11. Why do you need to know so desperately? 12. I interviewed for this job and was told the faculty would vote in the first week of December. I haven't heard a peep, so I assume they've offered--to someone else :) (x2) 13. Anyone accepted this position yet? 14. Position accepted.2

Asst Prof5/5/20161) Does anyone else think it's strange that a teaching statement is not part of the application package? 2) I thought the same thing. I still plan to apply, but that would be my first question when they ask "do you have any questions for us?" I would want to know their teaching priorities -- 3) Focus on the research statement and how to integrate undergrads into your research I think denotes the importance of that aspect; teaching/mentorship are part of that. 4) Received an inviation for a Skype interview on 11/13/2015. 5) No longer under consideration on 12/9, but they are starting to contact candidates for interviews. 6) How'd you find this out? Email? 7)They contacted me on 12/7 for a skype interview on 12/8 or 12/9, and requested additional materials. A little confused about how #4 received an interview request so long ago though? 8) Hmm, that's curious. I posted number 4 and 5. I did the Skype interview in November, but recieved the email today (12/9) that they have begun contacting candidates for an on campus interview (I am not one of those candidates). Perhaps they did an initial round of Skype interviews, weren't satitisfied with the pool and went down the list. 9) on campus interviews just wrapped up 10) offer made (2/11) 11) Received email that position has been filled (5/5)10

Asst Prof12/24/2015Cluster hire: 2 positions. 1) Any updates on this one? 2) Does anyone know if this has moved forward? 3) I want to know too! 4) Paper letter today saying all searches across all depts were cancelled b/c of budget before interviews. So I was short listed for an interview but the search is dead. FML. x2 5) Sorry to hear that. This is one of the jobs with the earliest deadline. 6) same letter although not sure that had anything to do with a shortlist. 7) You're mean the schools are just lying?? Why would they bother? 8) I think #6 means that his/her letter did not indicate if he/she was in the shortlist. The letter I have received did not indicate anything about short list either. Our letters may be different with the letters #4 have received, which may suggest that the university has sent out different letters to the ones in the shortlist and the ones not. 9) I see. Mine was from chair and said they hope to reopen search, but assume I will have a job before then lol.6

Asst Prof10/21/2015Expect to make a junior hire, but outstanding senior applicants will also be considered. 1) This search ran last year. Anyone know why it failed? 2) They offered it to the first choice and gave them a lot of time to give an answer. The person who it was offered to declined (and ended up at Princeton) but the deans office told them it was too late to offer it to the next choice. 3) Poor Michigan never had a chance. That's what happens when you put all your money on a candidate with a dozen other options. They won't be the only ones searching again this year. 4) All the candidates they interviewed were amazing, but at least 2 of the others had other offers so they're now off the market! 5) Don't think for a second that will keep them out of the applicant pool for this job again. 6) Maybe, but the ones I'm aware of accepted at places at least as desirable as Michigan (at least by my judgement). 7) Short list of 10 candidates was made, interviews will start in November. 8) Were people on the short list notified? 9) No, they will come up with a list for interviews in the next few days. 10) Thanks for asking about that #8! ("So you're telling me there's a chance.") 8) Exactly my thoughts! I think it is worse knowing that a list exists, but not knowing if you're on it. 11) Anyone get an interview? Or hear if interviews were scheduled? 12) Yes 13) #12, you got an interview? Congrats! 14) Is there a list of who is interviewing anywhere? 15) List is up on the department website. Looks like they are interviewing a couple of people who were already there as postdoc/faculty fellows... 16) Two from same institution? Seems fishy, pardon the pun. 17) "internal hire" seems very, very likely. 18) Good. Maybe they will actually put a "museum person" in a museum job. 19) first in seminar gets the prize 20) Offer made. 21) internal candidate?5

My name was on that list too, but I suggest we act like mature adults and move on. What could possibly be gained from raising a stink about this?

I wonder if these are faculty candidate talks? 13) Yes. 14) Congratulations to the faculty candidates! 15) are these all the interviews for all 3 positions or sc is still deciding on the rest? 16) Dec 21. I just got an email telling me that they are reviewing applications for this position, so I assume there will be additional interviews beyond the ones already listed on the web site (??) 17) I got the same message and assume it is mostly geared towards getting us to fill out the affirmative action form—I did not interpret this letter as though I am on some short list (ie better chance we fill this out now, before we get the rejection letter). 18) Got the same message. Probably wants us to fill this out before official rejection. 19) So funny -- I was just about to post the same update, with the same interpretation as #s 17 and 18. 20) #17 here. I already marked the email as spam without filling out. 20) This leaves a bad taste in one's mouth. 21) Happy holidays from Pitt! Can you fill out a form? tyia. 22) Will you give me job? 23) Let's talk about that in a bit. Could you please fill out some forms for HR before we talk about that? Also, don't look at our upcoming seminar schedule. TYIA for all of your help.24) (16 again) I don't think it means a short list, but do you really think they are only bringing in 3 people for 3 positions. At least on the talk schedule I saw, only 3 of the talks are non-Pitt grad students. 22) Fair point. I remove Pitt from my 'door-has-closed' list. . . . for now. 23) still not filling out forms until they give me a job. 24) Agreed! when they give me the offer I will give them the form. 25) That form is dead to me. 26)  Still so little info on this position that really bares on status?  They are doing a search for 4 positions! 27) Interviews are happening now. some seminars are listed on their website. 28) Rejection received 2/26 x10 29) If only I would have filled out that hiring questionare! The regrets begin... 30) Anyone else that didn't have an interview not get a rejection yet? 29) Oh weird.. I gave up on this a while ago.

I was forwarded the letter request and they did spell "Reference" wrong in the subject line..... 9) Did anyone not receive a request for letters? 10) Really?? Everyone received letter requests? Damn. Maybe there was a mistake. 11) anyone ever get to the bottom of this? 12) Contacted SCC about updating my application.

Anyone know more? 14) No x2 14) rejection 12.8 (x7). 15) ditto- received request for letters a while back, and then official rejection today, 12.8 (x4). 23
