I negotiated my job offer with the Psychology department at an R1 a little over a week ago. What is the typical wait time to receive a formal offer letter from a Provost/Dean?

you negotiated with the department/search chair? I guess it's different everywhere. In my experience all the negotiations get done with admin…
My offer letter from the Dean took about two weeks after negotiating it with the Dept Chair. It's no worries… just get used to working with slow administrative systems! My contract did not arrive for another month after that.
Thanks for that helpful info. I was just fearing the worst in these rough economic times. Yesterday, I had to cancel my remaining interview without having received the official offer letter. Good news is that I received an email stating the offer is "in the mail."
My offer letter has taken more than 4 weeks, but there are several departments involved, so that might be why.
