There have been some rumblings on the main wiki about the VAP position at Union, but has anyone heard from any other visiting positions? Since it seems like many of the TT searches are dragging on, I suppose they will probably take their time…
Could you elaborate on where you got this info, cog? I know the ad says they are reviewing apps as they come in, but the ad also says that their final deadline is February 25th. Although I know this position is a long shot for me, I would be disappointed to have applied for a job a full month before the final deadline only to find out it was already filled.
yEvb0, not sure if you care about Colby College, but I know they are planning to bring people out for campus interviews at the end of February. I was told by the search chair that they are intentionally trying to wait to do their interviews until after most TT interviews have been conducted, so their candidates aren't forced to choose between a VAP and a TT job. Not sure if this is typical of other VAPs, but I think it makes perfect sense (and I appreciate it!).
I was talking about the cognitive position, with a Jan 15 deadline. I just realized there was a social position, and I know nothing about that one. I have personal knowledge of the cognitive situation.
