It should cause less grief with editing! All you have to do is read the instructions.
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 letterstenure trackAssistant Professor62/13/20141) Note that a recent posting on Texas A&M job board lists closing date as 12/12 in two separate places. The link to the job website still says 12/19, but you might want to confirm that - hate to see someone miss out because of some messup on the other side. 2) rejection email 2/21. (x5). 3) Don't feel bad rejectees. (third-hand from inside source) It was decided at some point that this position, advertised as a "broadly defined" wildlife management position in which wildlife-human interactions was the seventh out of seven possible areas of research, was actually a wildlife-human interactions policy position in which a lot of solid scientists were dropped because they, let's all say it together... "weren't the right fit." 4) well, this is what "management and policy" is about after all. 5) it's about being misleading? 6) That is one very narrow definition of "management and policy" but I suppose they wanted to get the applicant pool numbers up by wasting the time of those buying the "broad" definition. 7) From the inside (inside UCB not the SC), based on the candidate list this search certainly did become a very narrow search which could/should have been advertised as "Large Carnivore Conservation." Only small hints of "wildlife management" or "policy" have turned up so far.

3-5 namesttAssistant/Associate Christian liberal arts college associated with Mennonites 1). I recently interviewed for this position along with one other person. The new president declined offering a contract for either applicant as neither of us would teach creation science. The faculty have since filed a greivance against the president. Meanwhile the president is conducting his own faculty search outside of the science faculty. Just a heads up if you decide to apply. 2) WHAT.THE.FUCK.(x3) 3) carefull people, i'll bet god checks this wiki. and he probably doesn't even post updates... that asshole.

Does anyone know what happened? 2) Offers were made, but unfortunately they all ended up elsewhere. If you applied last year, please re-apply! 3) it's not clear what they want for letters (page just says "See Special Instructions", but nothing is mentioned about letters in the special instructions...) Anyone know? 4) "Three letters of recommendation should be submitted through the automated MAP/COMPASS web site." but uploading reference info did not automatically send them reqeusts. I can't figure out how to send the request. 5) Hang tight, we're looking into it and will report back ASAP. 6) @4 Search committee member here. Did you actually finish and submit the application and not just save it? The system should automatically request letters once your application is submitted. 4) Hi. I see. I did not submit the application yet. I will tell my letter writers to hold on now until I submit. Thank you for the infromation. 7) Thanks for the info, search committee member-- I came on here specifically to see if anyone had insight into the reference situation for this position. Just submitted my info, and it looks like my references received their emails. 8) Weird how the deadline on the dept page says 11/1 and on the MSU page says 11/3. Which date is right? 9) @8 Committee member here again. Turns out 11/1 is a Saturday, so we will start making our first pass in the days after 11/3. You might want to submit your app a few days earlier though, to give your letter writers a few days to get their letters in. 10) Really only 3 letters? The site let me upload 5 names? Emailed and never heard back. 11) @10. SCM here. Sorry for the confusion. I haven't talked with the chair about this so this is just my opinion. If the COMPASS system (under HR control, not ours) lets you request 5 names, then we will get 5 letters, but 3 are all we need and are completely sufficient. I wouldn't worry about it one way or the other: it's hard to imagine how those 4th and 5th letters will have any new info we can't get from the rest of your package. 12) Thanks for all of the helpful info, SCM. in a world where applicants get such little feedback on searches, it's great to know that someone cares enough to check the wiki site regularly and answer questions. keep us posted :) 13) Emailed my representative publications on Thursday evening as requested and got a bounce back Saturday evening saying the inbox is full - scary! 14) x2 for number 13. 15) SCM: Sorry about that. The chair's been informed, hope it's better soon. Update: we got a bigger quota for that mailbox, so try sending your papers again if they bounced. 16) Long list of 20 candidates made 11/17/2014 (contacted by Search Committee chair) 17) ditto 16 18) x7 Super nice rejection letter (opposite side of that 20 candidate list).

They also have a similar position in Wildlife Bio (posted above), don't know anything about timing on that. 3) Seems like a nice department, but small startup packages. Teaching would be 50-60% online in emergency preparadness/management. No opportunities in area for family, so removed myself from consideration. 4) maybe they will stagger down the list to me. :(

3 namestenure trackassistant professor31) Anyone have any insight on this position? How firm are they on invert focus? 2) Any updates? 3) Got a phone interview invitation 4) congrats! 5) Anyone heard anything post-phone interview? 6) Post-phone interview... no contact from St. Ed's (1/12/15) 7) Me neither. 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)

I'm not sure how many others they're interviewing. 2) Has anyone heard anything about the other positions (animal physiology, systems biology)? 3) I have a Skype-type interview this week for animal physiology position. I don't know how many people they are interviewing. 4) any on-campus interviews scheduled yet? 5) I interviewed on campus for the animal physiology position and know they have now finished interviews for that position. I believe they are still interviewing for the evolutionary biologist position. 6) great - thanks for the update! (7) Are there on-campus interviews scheduled for Evol Biol? I was told we should hear about on-campus interviews around 3/6, but still no news either way 8) same here. 9) Any one know what position they're interviewing right now? (in the on campus interview column it says they are doing interview 3/16-3/27 but doesn't say what postion these interviews are for) 10) #5 here again, I believe they were interviewing for the evolutionary biologist position 3/16-3/27 and that is the last of the interviews for the 3 positions (last I heard). 11) Bummer.

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/

Do a google search for FSU + layoffs. Potential junior faculty need to do their homework on the university. 2) But the follow up is that the fired faculty sued collectively, got their jobs back but by then had better jobs. It was largely economy driven, not an outlier in 2008-2009, oceanography and anthropology were closed and maybe other departments. 3) Rejection email 2/27 (x3)

How important is the religion deal? 3) Yep, thats the problem. The upper administration are still very churchy and are ultimately the ones that have the pull. It seemed like the faculty were hit or miss as far as bringing up the religious stuff. In the past, the associate vice president point blank gave me the history of the founder (young harris) and what a great christian man he was. Then I was asked how I would honor his legacy and if I was a christian. The head of HR also inquired about my denomination. I was done after that! 4) WORST APPLICATION WEBSITE EVER! Worse than community colleges!
