    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Indiana, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to IUP for a campus interview for an assistant professor position in my field. The backwater town and low-intensity of the school reflects in the faculty and students alike. For example, the questions faculty asked at my job talk didn't reflect more than an undergraduate understanding of our field and I had several meetings scheduled that faculty just didn't show up for. The meetings I did have left a bad impression - for instance one program director had drooping eyes and was struggling to keep her head up - seemed like she was on pain medication. When we went out for dinner after my talk I was given the check to pay for my own glass of wine! What's more, I was asked to purchase my own airfare and assured a reimbursement ... I'm still waiting for that check two and half months later. If you have serious career ambitions and ANY other option, I'd steer clear of this school.
