Has anyone heard anything about the Cornell social search? It was due October 1st and there are no updates on the main wiki page.
I spoke with people at Cornell about this 2 weeks ago. The department is doing 3 hires this year and the social group have lower priority than other areas because of recent hires. That's meant that the social group hasn't been able to move forward on their search until things are more settled with some of the other plans for hires in other areas. I found this pretty enlightening given how much time had passed. I'd just assumed they would be further along in the process than they could be, giving the balancing act between different hiring committees.
