Rumor Mill 2023-2024 is up and running!

Update Oct 10, 2023 – We are aware that the wiki pages are displaying some errors and folks are not able to login or edit. We are actively working on resolving this. In the meantime, it looks like the content is still all visible. You are welcome to use the comment section of this post for any time sensitive rumor mill updates.

The Rumor Mill ready for the new season is now up and running: Postdoc and Term and Faculty and Staff. The archives from previous years remain available.

As a reminder, here the AAS Policy on Postdoc positions:

The AAS Council has passed (1988) and reaffirmed (2003) a resolution stating that no postdoctoral position should require a candidate response prior to February 15 of each year. This policy applies to postdoctoral positions whose recruitment cycles follow the normal academic search timeline (offers in early spring to begin summer or fall of the same year). The text of this resolution is available on the Council Resolution webpage. Employers should take this policy into account in their recruitment process.

Prior experience shows that the rumor pages are 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 the Rumor Mill.

Finally, remember, even if you find disappointing news on the Rumor Mill, please remember that you still do good work and are probably absolutely crushing it in your current position. Your research is cool!
