Tenurings and Hirings to Tenure by Discipline

THESE TABLES reflect almost 5,000 first-time hirings to full-time junior positions effective as of the '98-'99 academic year. The listings cover the liberal arts and sciences at six hundred universities and four-year colleges in the United States and Canada. They should be read as follows: The institution in the third column hired the individual in the second column to a full-time junior position. (It may not be the first junior position the individual has held.) The individual received his or her graduate training at the institution in the first column.

Though most of these hirings involve multiyear, tenure-track contracts, some are for one-year positions only.

All information about hirings has been obtained either from the hiring institution or from the individuals concerned. Information about graduate training, however, has not in all cases been double-checked with the training institution. "N/A" means this information was not available at press time. Where we have a campus reference (e.g., "Illinois, Urbana"), we use it. But institutions might also be listed under their general university name (e.g., "Illinois, U of").

LINGUA FRANCA goes to great effort to insure that our data is accurate and as complete as possible. However, we know that Jobtracks is, as we go to press, incomplete and still not free from all errors. Consequently, we cannot be responsible for errors and omissions, and readers are advised not to act on any of this information without verifying it.

HIRING INSTITUTIONS: If your institution is not fully represented, simply send us the name, title, and address of the person in your administration who, each August, can give us your new tenurings and hirings. We will send that person the appropriate form.

GRADUATE INSTITUTIONS: We will send you an early draft of our list so that you can add any graduate placements we have missed. Tell us the name, title, and address of the person in your graduate school who, each October, has the most complete list of your placements in the arts and sciences.
