The UMass Boston Social Psychology job's advertisement listed Nov. 15 as its deadline; then today I notice the Wiki has been updated to have Nov. 12 as the deadline, but if you go to apply it says the position has expired. What gives?

Yeah, there was a change in the date on the ad on a different site to Nov. 12. The wiki main list also was updated, but the ad in the forum was not. I have no idea the reasons.
Was the intention to trick people into not applying?
Even if they changed the deadline to Nov 12, why not then, you know, allow submissions on Nov 12?
I have no idea. They also announced another position in the honors college in social neuroscience that appears to be on Nov. 15. So I doubt they are trying to get people not to apply. I guess you can try to contact them regarding the deadline change? I'm not sure of the best protocol in this situation.
