Job Market Calendar This institution has indicated that the position advertised will not follow the APA's recommended job market calendar. An explanation, if provided, appears below.

the question does not really apply because it's a postdoc. Moreover, it is an interdisciplinary center where more than half of the faculty are not in Phil.
