What do you expect from an institution that licenses its name to the Apollo Group?
*giggle* I have found so many errors in job ads that it's almost not funny. Between not actually giving me an address to send the application to, spelling "technology" wrong, and one that signed me up onto their mailing list only to forward me a virus, I'm going to be lucky to make it through the market without saying something somewhere about how generally awful job ads are. Also, if you are looking for somebody in professional communication, you better gosh darn tooting make sure the letter you send me thanking me for my application submission is in proper block format or something close.
My Grammer died (again) last week. Can I have an extension?
Wasn't Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. from the fair state of Indiana, where, as he wrote, people communicate "like a band saw cutting through tin?" I see his point now. ;-)
I once snorted a grammer of something. I can't remember the substance or the two weeks after I snorted it. Heck, I only realized that I had snorted it because of the third degree burns in my nostrils...Mathsquatch out.
Ok, I am the ignorant one here. Why do the accreditation councils allow this stuff? Like renting out names?
@ ResidentBecause they are whores, the colleges are whores, and everybody running academia needs forty years of gulag living in the Siberian permafrost zone.This ad is the tip of the iceberg; "Academic Jobs Wiki" has a zillion stories in it's "Universities to Fear" section of people who were snubbed at conference interviews, of college tours where the search committee acted like bickering children, and endless waits for reembursments, rejection or exceptance letters, even a chickenshit phone call from Prof. Muckymuck of Fill in the Blank U. http://www.academicjobs.wikia.com/wiki/Universities_to_fear
