MOVING TO FRONT (originally posted Sept. 4)--updated
Since the fall 2014 PGR surveys, here are the major lateral moves with tenure that have taken place:
Paul Audi (metaphysics, philosophy of mind) from the University of Nebraska, Omaha to the University of Rochester.
Rachael Briggs (metaphysics, epistemology, decision theory) from the Australian National University to Stanford University.
Phil Dowe (metaphysics, philosophy of science) from the University of Queensland to the Australian National University.
Annalisa Coliva (philosophy of mind, metaphysics, epistemology, history of analytic philosophy) from the University of Modina to the University of California, Irvine.
Jonathan Kvanvig (epistemology, philosophy of religion) from Baylor University to Washington University, St. Louis.
Peter Ludlow (philosophy of language and cognitive science) resigned from Northwestern University in November 2015.
Ned Markosian (metaphysics) from Western Washington University to the University of Massachussetts, Amherst.
Tristram McPherson (ethics, metaethics) from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University to Ohio State University.
Charles Mills (social & political philosophy, philosophy of race) from Northwestern University to the City University of New York Graduate Center.
Alyssa Ney (metaphysics, philosophy of mind) from the University of Rochester to the University of California, Davis.
Jill North (philosophy of physics) from Cornell University to Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
David Owen (early modern philosophy, esp. Hume) at the University of Arizona will retire at the end of 2015-16.
Adam Pautz (philosophy of mind, metaphysics) from the University of Texas at Austin to Brown University.
Karl Schafer (epistemology, ethics, Kant, history of modern philosophy) from the University of Pittsburgh to the University of California, Irvine.
Timothy Schroeder (philosophy of mind, moral psychology) from Ohio State University to Rice University.
Russ Shafer-Landau (ethics, metaethics) from the University of Wisconsin, Madison to the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
Ted Sider (metaphysics) from Cornell University to Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
Josef Stern (philosophy of language, medieval Jewish philosophy) at the University of Chicago will retire at the end of 2015-16.
Jason Turner (metaphysics) from St. Louis University to the University of Arizona.
David Wallace (philosophy of physics) from Oxford University to the University of Southern California.
Jennifer Whiting (ancient philosophy) from the University of Toronto to the University of Pittsburgh.
All these moves can be expected to have some effect (sometimes substantial) on the specialty rankings from last fall. In terms of the overall rankings of the programs, the effects would be less dramatic. Among the notable likely changes: Rutgers would be solidly #2 by itself, with Princeton at #3; Cornell might slip out of the top 20, though certainly not the top 25; UC Irvine and Wash U/St. Louis would both push towards the top 20; Brown will remain even more solidly top 20 and USC even more solidly top ten.
In addition, a number of offers have been extended (or are in the process of being extended):
Sara Bernstein (metaphysics), currently tenure-track at Duke University, has been voted a tenure-track offer by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame; this would involve an accelerated tenure clock.
Matthew Boyle (philosophy of mind and action, Kant, German Idealism) at Harvard University has a senior offer from the University of Chicago.
Daniel Nolan (metaphysics, epistemology, philosophical logic) at the Australian National University has been voted a senior offer by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
