No, but you probably have to hide 2 of the 3 articles you *did*
publish from the senior faculty interview. ;-)  At least that was my
experience when I interviewed at MIT....

Haha :-)

Did you get the job?

There is an interesting anecdote about Einstein.

When he applied for a position at Bern University, they rejected the thesis he had submitted with his application.

In those days, you needed a PhD from the university you were teaching in order to be a professor there. Einstein had a PhD from Zurich, but that was no good in Bern. It was thus customary to submit a new PhD thesis along with applying for a professorship at another university. The University of Bern rejected the first thesis, so he had to submit another one, which was then accepted.
