I have a manuscript that is under review in a major journal which is a main result out of a few recent years of my research. When applying for faculty positions, I would like to send the draft as a part of my writing sample. But since the material is not yet published, I am not sure if it is a good idea.
What are the foreseeable disadvantages of sending an article in review to the faculty search committee?
My area is neuroscience / biomedical engineering.
Update: The paper got into a high-profile journal, and I got a job at a different place which did not require a writing sample.
