NB. I’ve removed the Teaching Positions from the end of this listing as I’ve heard that many of them have been filled. I realise the Kent State on doesn’t say it’s closing til the 26th of Feb, so if you want it head back to my last deadlines post and you can see it there. (Rumour has it that interviews are/have been in progress.)

Other places to find yourself some deadly deadline action:
