    3. Sorry that I was ambiguous earlier: do you know if that's for the inorganic or open search? I'm on Future PI Slack but I can't seem to find the present application spreadsheet, just the 2020-2021 sheet.

  23. Any word from Vanderbilt or George Mason?

    Replies
    1. It looks like George Mason is doing onsite already. Only already TT candidates. But I may be wrong as this assumption is based on their seminar calendar.

      Delete
    2. I know it is too late for a hope for this school, but I cannot find any candidate seminar from their calendar. The search was open for asst., so I thought current schedules are just for regular departmental seminars. Couldn't find any info. more.

  24. anyone heard from the Baylor biochem search?

  25. General comment here:

    You know someone in your group is applying to the same pool of schools as I am. I received multiple interviews last cycle so it's not that I am not qualified, but I barely received any interview this year probably due to peer competition from the same group.

    Now they received multiple offers this cycle but did not accept any of them and will apply again next year.

    Any suggestions?

  28. How long after the last interview for a position does it typically take for job offer(s) to be made?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. People from my last interview told me that it would take around 4 weeks for them to send out the first offer after they interview the last candidate. Although I believe this strongly depends on different universities.

      Delete
    2. There is insane variation in my experience. At one institution I interviewed, the last interview was a Friday and they made the first offer the following Tuesday. At another institution I interviewed, the last interview was early December and they notified me last week that they are still deciding. So the range is 3 days to almost 2 months...

      Delete
    3. With the above comment in mind, a really good question to ask during your meeting with the department or search chair is what timeframe they expect for the offer. You can also reach out after the interview to the search chair to ask this question.

      Delete
    4. A candidate declining an offer can take 1 week to 1 month as well, further adding to the ranges listed above. The inquiry 4:09 suggest is fine, but know that chairs can be cagey in their response (if they respond). They want to keep the other candidates interested, but not obliquely state they didn't get the first offer.

  29. There are three people on the Arizona seminar schedule who might be in-person candidates for the chemistry/biology interface position.
