Weel - the interview is over. Kind of weird, snowstorm hit and the university was closed, but they still held the interview. so i didn't get to meet many people outside the 2 faculty interviewers, and I had a teaching and research talk each to just those two member. oh well. at least its over. I think they liked me, but i am really iffy about them... I like them well enough, but the school seems to be in so much transistion, and they are expecting me and the other new search candidate (they are running 2 searches) to give them direction, create a minor, promote a program, teach a 3-3 and have a stellar research program. I fear the amount of service work will make it very difficult to get the research done needed for tenure, not to mention they had a faculty member not make tenure 2 years ago and leave and the university is trying to change the tenure process. To top it off, it seems that the salary will just be median, where I was hoping it would be a little higher to cover the increased COL. Anyway, we will see - I won't find out for over a month, but that is a good thing actually becuase I have other job apps out that haven't even been reviewed yet.
