Someone just updated the wiki to say that UC Santa Cruz has posted a list of job candidate talks openly on their website. Does anyone know of other institutions with searches currently underway who have posted such lists? It would be interesting to see who's getting interviews.

Here's a thought. Go to the websites of the schools you where applied.
I have been keeping an eye out for this for the cog jobs and haven't seen any… :-/
In a way it can be nice when you see who is getting the interviews, but I know such listings often backfire when the person already has a faculty position elsewhere. Someone in their current department always ends up seeing the name listed and ratting them out! It can cause really hard feelings, and can even hurt the person's chance of getting a fair counter offer. So I think most places don't do this any more. Departments seem to do it mostly so the faculty/grad students know when the talks are going to be… I don't see why they can't either use a private calendar or just handle this via email and within-department postings. Of course, some states and universities have weird rules/laws about advertising jobs and job candidates, so maybe they have no choice sometimes?
My name is definitely listed for the talk I gave recently at one university. Not really much I could say to them and, to an extent, given the reputation of this place I suppose it could end up being a positive if the places I have offers from see this, but it sure seems like a problematic move for universities to do this. Just seems like it introduces the possibility that information will exchange hands that probably shouldn't.
Looks like UC Santa Cruz took down their list. Like I said, I think it can be problematic to make such lists public information.
NYU posted 4 candidates for the perception job (psych . nyu . edu /events/colloquia . html) at the bottom of the page
perhaps things are different now, but once upon a time all postings were made on the departments website. But really, unless you're somehow scheduling your interviews when you don't have a class to teach, and are not getting a letter of recommendation from your existing department people in your current department know you're leaving regardless of how secret squirrel you're being.
Will someone please direct me to the list of job talks posted for the Johns Hopkins position? Found the NYU but no luck with the Johns Hopkins.
