They have invited ~30 shortlisted candidates (across all disciplines; presumably only those located within N. America) to a workshop @ Yale the week after Thanksgiving. The workshop is for them to present their plans for the new college, as well as for potential faculty members to contribute to discussions about the curriculum.
No idea about how many people applied (bear in mind it's not just 1 or 2 positions—they're starting a new college, so they're hiring many faculty from all disciplines), nor whether those invited to attend the workshop were mainly junior or senior people. Here's an excerpt from their email: "We expect to have about thirty potential YNC faculty members in attendance, in a wide variety of fields and at all career stages. Close to twenty Yale and NUS faculty and staff will also participate."
