Do people on here know if, in general, the statuses of two positions in different areas (e.g., clinical vs. neuro; developmental vs. social) at the same university are correlated? In other words, if University A states that they have interviewed or made offers on a position in clinical, but nothing has been updated for a neuro position, can one assume that the University A neuro position probably did something similar? Or are the positions and search committee timelines different?
On the one hand, faculty members are busy and may only want to have one "season" of interviews. On the other hand, faculty are busy and might divide up the work (you take clinical and I take cognitive), so they have two search committees that could have very different timelines.
