Please include a link to the job when adding it to the list.

If possible, include names and dates when offers are made and accepted, since this helps to differentiate wrong rumors from right ones. Use boldface to indicate when a position has been accepted. 

If a rumor you put on keeps getting removed by someone else (and that rumor is not about you) please respect that person’s wishes—they might have reasons to keep it private and/or your rumor might be wrong.

Prior experience shows that the rumor page is not 100% accurate.  If you need to make an important time-critical decision based on the status of a job opening, we strongly encourage you to get your information from the official search committee, not this page.

We have chosen to adopt a hands-off policy for the Rumor Mill; however, you may contact @Astrobetter for technical difficulties. Please logout to edit the page anonymously.
