Brown just announced they are suspending new hiring for this year and for the next fiscal year (faculty and staff, seasonal and temporary hiring). I imagine lots of other schools are / will be making similar calls. So that's fun.

it hasn't popped up there yet but I assume this message will soon be posted to the "Communications" section of the Provost's web site (in case folks want a link to something instead of going off one person's tweet)

Sorry for freaking out all of Academic Twitter with this news, but I had a similar reaction and figured the info was worth sharing on here. Some folks asked specific q's about this decision: I have no info beyond this message. And yep, I'm also looking for my next job🙃

Not all. This isn't an accurate rendering of what they wrote.

Among all the other stressful and scary things, this is a hard time to be on the job market (to say the least!)
