This is for a US R1 institution.
About 2 weeks ago I had an on-site interview for an assistant professor position, and last Friday the department wrapped up interviewing candidates. Today I got an email about having a follow up meeting with the Associate Dean for Faculty Development to discuss my future research goals as well as how I plan to use the resources at the university. Does anyone know if this is a normal part of the hiring process, because I've never heard of a follow-up interview like this before? Also, I already met with the the dean of the college during my on-site interview, and this is a different person.
