I am preparing for a short (15 minute) phone interview and am trying to force typical 3 minute responses ("tell us about your research") into 1-2 minute responses and it's coming off as vague and unfocused. I should mention this is for a full professor position, so it's summarizing 15 years of research. Any advice on this? Is it possible to just give the longer responses and if it goes over or they don't get to ask all their questions, so be it? Or should I be attempting to manage the time as much as they are?

It's for a full-professor position and they set up a 15 minute phone call? I suspect the call will go like this:
Search Committee: "Hello."
Search Committee: "Did you apply because you want this job or because you're hoping for a raise at the university you're currently at? We have limited funds and we don't want to pay to bring out candidates who aren't actually considering the position."
Candidate: "I actually want the job."
Search Committee: "Ok great! Let's set up an in-person interview."
Candidate: "Ok great!"
