The seminar went tolerably well. Better than the Edinburgh seminar, though not as well as the Manchester one.
Some further intrigue about all this. I am one of two shortlisted candidates (the other is a genetic algorithms chap from Harvard), which is a bit on the short side for a lectureship. The reason for this is that these interviews apparently aren’t for the advertised lectureship (the OMII post), but as some sort of ‘special post’ (Eternal Leader’s words). I can’t work out if this has improved my chances, or if I’m being used as a stalking horse to enable the school to headhunt someone else.
I really am a ‘glass half-full’ guy, aren’t I? Oh well, interview tomorrow morning at 10.30.
