I applied for a postdoctoral position, and I got an email from hiring committee :
"Thank you for applying ~ positions. All positions have been filled. But we have been authorized to fill a Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) position starting ~. If you are interested in being considered for this new position, please let me know ASAP."
Is this a gentle letdown? Or is it means that there's a high chance for me to get an offer for VAP?
