Looks like a job talk has been added to the schedule, although the candidate has been an assistant professor at other institutions for almost 10 years. Anybody know if the department has decided to hire at the associate level instead of going for an assistant professor as advertised?

There is a searchable "scheduling" link on their News and Events webpage.
Aside from the colloquium on the main calendar, the searchable schedule also lists meetings with faculty, grad students, etc. over a two day period. Sure looks like a job interview.
Note that the person in question is already an Associate Professor (since 2009) at a very highly regarded university. Maybe Wisconsin is interested in hiring him, but it could just be a visit (i.e., not a job interview). For example, my department has a person coming this week who is giving a colloquium and has several meetings with various people, but it isn't for a job interview.
yep…though if it is a candidate, the bar is pretty high…wonder if any of their other searches have made progress.
I agree. Wouldn't read into this as though it's related to a job. This person was invited for a colloquium by a faculty member. I think it's very unlikely to have anything to do with the position advertised.
Reasonable assumption. Question is whether there is a dean on the schedule. If so, then it is likely an interview, if not, likely not…
Still nothing new on the department calendar, although there's no guarantee job talks will be listed there. (In fact, according to info in another thread, Wisconsin has made calls to clinical candidates, suggesting that they aren't posting job talks on the calendar.)
Three job talks are now posted on the department calendar. Based on the talk titles, looks like they decided to go in a neuroscience direction.
From looking them up, I wonder whether the second and third candidates are interviewing for the psychopathology/clinical position rather than the cognitive position.
I don't see who you are talking about … all I see are weekly brown-bag types of talks and one department colloquium of a senior person.
Looks to me the Interviews calendar is password-protected. (i.e., http://glial.psych.wisc.edu/interviews/)
