Tenure-Track Hires, 2013-2014

Each of the past two years, ProPhilosophy has accumulated hiring data for Ph.D.-granting departments, which has then been analyzed by Carolyn Dicey Jennings (UC-Merced). This data has outstripped that collected by the Leiter Reports hiring thread by over 100 jobs. This is not surprising, because whereas all Leiter has to do to collect data is open a comment thread, we had to send emails to the placement director and department chair of every Ph.D.-granting department we could think of, and then send a couple of follow-ups to those who didn’t respond. This was a lot of work, but we think it’s worth it.

This year, we would like more help. Please encourage your placement director and department chair to email a list of people who got TT jobs or postdocs to Please also go over to the 2013-2014 TT hires page and follow the link to the Google form, filling it out for any TT hires not on there that you are certain of. At the end of the hiring season, the data will be published on the 2013-2014 TT hires page, organized by Ph.D.-granting department, and analyzed again by Prof Jennings.
