PhDs Struggling in a Difficult Job Market: Don’t Apply to THIS Job! | Leiter Reports

Philosopher Daniel Weiskopf (George State) calls my attention to a quite startling ad for a job in English at Colorado State University, which requires that applicants have earned the PhD since 2010! As the linked post notes, given the state of the humanities job market, everyone knows there are lots of very good candidates with PhDs from 2009, 2008 and, horrors, even 2007 who still haven’t found suitable appontments. This ad promises to consign them to the discard pile without even looking at them. Hopefully we won’t see such ads in philosophy.
