No idea - but you could do worse than network at upcoming conferences, and feel things out through the grapevine. The school where I presently have an offer is a job I heard about (as a possibility) about 6 months before the search was announced, through a casual conversation at a poster session. I'm not sure that information helped me secure the job - but I definitely had it on my radar well in advance.
This is the original poster. Yeah, hard to know .. I'm just excited about what jobs are going to be out there. Then again, I realize most departments don't even know until the start of a new academic year.
When do the job ads start being posted? Some will come early summer, yes?
Same poster as 12:12 - I think the job ads come earlier and earlier every year. Some of the early deadlines (i.e., the ad would have come even sooner) were in September, which meant the ads were already being posted in the summer. So jobs are posted in the fall, or winter.
Last year I reset the wiki on June 1st because a few job ads for the next search cycle had already been posted.
