7/7/77777/7/7777At the risk of duplicating effort and dividing the userbase, I tried making a new google spreadsheet. The main improvement over 2014-15 is that the first 3 columns are protected, so it should be harder to mess up (add new jobs with a linked google form). I'm a total hack so I can't guarantee its functionality! Please leave feedback so we can decide what to use.

This is great. A big thanks to the user that built this. I suspect people will migrate over relatively quickly. 2) Agreed. I like this layout. by protecting cells and displaying warning messages before sorting, etc., it should cut down on catastrophic events. 3) OK I added a lot of jobs to it, so let's start using it.

4/13/20157/2/2015Clemson University (SC)Assistant Unit Leader (Wildlife), SC Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit5/15/2015RGEGS-12/Assistant Professor57/2/20151) This really belongs in the permanent non-academic or in the non-tenure track list. These folks don't get tenure. Also, the advertisement says GS 12, not GS 14. 2) BTW, these coop posts are horribly competitive. Just about every current phd who is qualified applies, then, lots of tenured profs. most go to peope with a ton of experience and very very long cvs in my experience. 3) Though it varies from unit to unit, for this particular position, the hire will have a full faculty appointment with the university (i.e., not adjunct/visiting), can directly advise graduate students, and teach graduate-level classes. So while not traditional TT, is more academically-focused compared to other federal research units based at universities (e.g. Forest Service research station scientists generally are only adjunct, and therfore can't directly supervise their grad students students, and aren't expected to teach). 4) In response to the OP, the posting reads weird, as it indicates the next level is GS 15, but you also see mention of GS 12 too. Odd 5) In research grade positions with USGS, every four years you go through a research grade evaluation (RGE). In the RGE, you are evaluated by your peers (i.e. other USGS scientists) and they decide your fate regarding GS level - increase, remain the same, or possibly even decrease, although decreasing a GS level is extremely rare. New research grade scientists typically start at GS-12 - I would think you would have to have at least four years experience as a tenure-track professor with a stellar publishing record to even be considered as a GS-13 hire. 6) all you got to do to decrease is not produce to the level that USGS expects you to produce.

3 namestenure trackAssistant Professor31) Has anybody heard anything about this position? 2) nadda 3) Does anyone know how this search is going? (01 December 2014) 4) Deadline is March 15, 2015. Spoke with a faculty member who I know and they said the HR department released the advertisement earlier than the department wanted. With such a late deadline I can't see how the search will take place before the end of the academic year. Awfully late for a July 1, 2015 start date. 5) So the two job ads were the same position posted twice with different dates? 6) Yea, I emailed the search chair and she indicated reviews would not start until March 15 7) rejection letter feb 18th 4 again) How can a rejection letter have been received BEFORE the end of the application period?!?! I've just gotten word that the interviews are wrapping up and it's only March 20th!!! 7) Interviews for a DIFFERENT position at St. Mary's have wrapped up. Review of candidates for this position has just started. 8) Well, applications for THIS position were due 5 weeks ago (as of 4/22/15). And, there has been nothing but crickets. Anyone heard anything? 4) Nothing yet. I plan to phone my contact next week for an update. 4) SC meeting soon and July 1 is still the intended start date. 8) I heard the SC met sometime around April 27 or 28. We are two weeks out from that; surely the short list has been created by now. Since I haven't been contacted, I think the writing is on the wall for me on this one. :-(  *** May 20 - short list was approved by Dean last week, and interview offers have been sent.  If you have not received an interview offer, you can consider yourself rejected. ***

Not sure if they're just slow or have moved on without those of us frequenting this wiki. I remember the SC saying that they expect to do campus interviews in Jan, though. 8) Same here, during the phone interview they said campus interviews would be Jan/Feb., but no word yet. 9) It's March. Did they interview anybody? 10) I have heard nothing since the phone interview last fall 11) #7 here. Sounds like none of us have heard anything since the phone interviews. Anyone tried to contact the SC to see what's going on? 12) Rejection email 4/24/15, search canceled. 13) Hmmm, I was one of the phone-interviewees, but never received any rejection email as of 5/6/15. 14) Try contacting the SC if you want confirmation/rejection. 15) Now it's a 1-year VAP position (posted 5/15/15)

4 namesTenure TrackAssistant Professor111) This position was just re-posted to the Texas A&M job board on 1/20 with a close date of 2/21/2015 2) I second the deleted post that there appears to be some major incompetence associated with this search 3) e-mail from chair to see if I was still interested in the position x4. 4) Out of curiosity, are the people contacted by the chair ornithologists? I fit this position pretty well with the exception of the ornithology bit, so I'm really curious about who is on the shortlist. 5) Is this actually indication of a short list? 6) From the email it was unclear whether this was a short list but it was individually addressed so was likely not sent to everyone - I suspect they are putting together a "long list" at this stage; in response to 4 - I've worked with both mammals and birds 7) wow, still nothing? 8) haha, I was just thinking, "wow, I haven't heard anything on this for close to a month" 3/24 9)They seem to be in no hurry, which is a little suspicious. They did call my references on 3/16 so I expected them to move on this position. 10) They contacted my references too and I'm hoping they get things worked out before interviewing would mean missing three days of fieldwork to interview with the few people that might be around campus over the summer. 11) anyone hear anything? I got an e-mail on 30 April asking if I was still interested then NOTHING- again. weird. 12) this has 'stay away' written all over it (13) I know someone in wildlife/fisheries who is very happy with the dept 11) do they know anything about the reason why this posting has dragged on for 5 months now? I seem to get contacted every 2 weeks to a month, just after I have decided to cross it off the list, then NOTHING (14) heard through the grapevine that this was filled but I haven't been contacted outright to tell me directly

I had a contact in the department (not on the SC) and the impression I got was that they are also one of the many underfunded state schools with low pay (because low cost of living), high teaching loads, and additiohal MS level research expectations.7) High teaching loads with expectations for research and pubs that are not realistic. Plus, associate profs are making 54k and asst. profs start around 44k. I know it is low cost of living, but that is poverty level! 8) hate to admit it, but I would take that salary,

Is there no movement since then, or did the 2 wiki users on the short list miss out on the short-short list? 2) Has anyone been invited for campus interviews yet? 3) It appears somone deleted a lot of comments re. this position 4) Too bad and not a good sign as that is usually done from the inside 5) well, we can't have that, now can we. Arise from the ashes, true thoughts on this position! [1) Here we go is this different than the mammalian biology position advertised last year and never filled? 2) Herps, birds and fish aren't mammals.... 3) Cast the widest net faculty fishing....sounds like they don't know what they want. 4) It is the mammalian biologist position that went unfilled although two offers were made (inside source). 5) Any news folks? 6) I picture the SC sitting in a room for the past month trying to decide how they define an Integrative Biologist. 7) Yes & no, there was an additional faculty retirement, so this would have been the mammal position redux, but they're now casting a wider net. With any luck, they'll manage to hire two people! 8) Or maybe they'll pay one person two salaries and get them out of the 8th percentile of salaries for PhD granting universities. 9) Its both mammalian and avian positions they want filled. Phone interviews happened in Dec. 10) What a lousy position announcement - no where does it indicate two positions. How are potential applications supposed to figure out is separate mammalian and avian positions? 11) It makes the "you just weren't the best fit" argument a lot easier for them when nobody (including them) knows what they're looking for. 12) Unless they actually do know what they're looking for ...right? 13) Wrong. They are talent fishing, but can't attract top talent given the Missoula scenery tax. That is why, in part, the last two offers made for this position were declined (inside source). 14) and there is disagreement between what biological sciences and the wildlif bio program want out of this position, good luck satisfying duel masters. 15) How many failed searches (or delayed failed searches = when someone accepts and then leaves 2 years later) does Montana need before they realize they aren't the most attractive option and there are a lot of applicants outside the top 0.1% who would love to work there. They would save enough money on searches to offer a slightly more reasonable salary.] 16) I wonder who got the offer in John Krakauer's favorite town 17) I heard through the grapevine that they had someone in mind for the position and invited them to apply, then offered this person the position. Not sure if they accepted.

Scheduled week of Jan 26 x2
Set for Feb/March (x3)
offer made (3/13/15) - declined
Declined (4/8/15)
1. Date extended to 12/5/14 2. phone interviews expected to be scheduled in January, 3. I got the same message 4. Me, too. I guess everyone did! (but I'm Catholic, Ha!) 5) #4, that makes 2 of us!! HA HA! ;) 5) I didn't get an email regarding short list, so I assume I'm not on it? 6) I think it is technically a long list. It was asking candidates on that list of 15 to make sure that their letters had been sent. It wasn't a presonalized email and seemed to be to everyone. But I don't know if those who did get all letters were sent the email. They noted that they will schedule phone interviews in Jan and campus interviews will follow in Feb. 7) About a week or less before that time, one of my references had contacted me with a note that he missed the reference request. I am pretty sure I told him that oftentiems the automated reference requests get spammed out. So, it is very possible that everyone was notified in response to my comment. I know I did not get the above email, but it was sent to you guys literally within a day or so after my correspondence. 8) emailed today by search chair asking if I'm still interesed in the position. What is this all about? If I applied I'm interested! x3 9) #8, they always do this because you might hae accepted a different position. Myself, I'ld jump at Dayton if offered. BUt, I was not! :( 10) Got an email noting that it might be a week or more until phone intereviews are scheduled (email said it was addressed to 14 candidates). Long process but appreciate the updates. Not every search chair/committee does this! 11) Are the two campus interviews here an error? I thought they were just doing phone interviews next week. The chair has been very communicative abotu that. 12) Hmmm don't see campus interviews scheduled. I know that i have a phone interview this week.13) Received official rejection email 1/27/2015 14) same here, claiming it was an amazing field of 161 applicants. 15) x6 16)x7 Moved additional comments to venting

Also, the advertisement says GS 12, not GS 14. 2) BTW, these coop posts are horribly competitive. Just about every current phd who is qualified applies, then, lots of tenured profs. most go to peope with a ton of experience and very very long cvs in my experience. Interviews are completed.

moved to discussion; 3/24 email "We have decided at this time to cancel this search due to a number of factors unrelated to the quality of the pool of candidates" 2) As noted in the discussion about this place late last year, there were quite a few red flags here, so someone dodged a bullet. Did anyone on the Wiki get an interview? How did the place seem? Any more details on why the search was ended? --> I'm not sure if there was an error on this wiki or something was pasted and ended up in the wrong place, but this (mammalogy at UMaine) search was NOT ended, and I don't think these comments apply? An offer has been made and is in negotiations.

Is there no movement since then, or did the 2 wiki users on the short list miss out on the short-short list? 2) Has anyone been invited for campus interviews yet? 3) I was short-listed but have not heard back since then. (1/24 update - I made short list too, and Chair informed me that Jan 12 the search committee approved the interview list, but the faculty still had to approve, then the Dean before anyone gets contacted) 4) It's Feb 9...has anyone been contacted to schedule an interview? 5) Yes, I was contacted on Feb 6 and invited to interview 6) Last candidate interviewed 3/16-17. Search committee met on 3/20. No word yet on offers. 7) 4/1 - does anyone know if an offer has been made yet? 8) I'm pretty sure it has. I was at a conference this weekend where one of the speakers was announced as starting as an Asst Prof at UC-Davis in the fall...her focus lined up perfectly with the job description 9) Yea, I heard a rumor on who it had been offered to - only a rumor but it was a woman which matches with 8 10) I'm really curious who got this position. I went to all 5 talks and they were excellent. 4 of the 5 candidates were women, so this doesn't narrow the options much.
