However, interview at the AMA conference is neither a requirement nor a constraint for potential applicants. We will interview candidates using appropriate video technology at mutually convenient times. We are also willing to consider alternatives to the AMA conference interviews to accommodate confidentiality needs of current assistant professors. We will do everything we can to ensure that the specific mode of preliminary interview is not a factor in the evaluation of candidates. Our goal is to obtain a large, qualified, and diverse candidate pool.
