I was an applicant for a tenure-track opening in mathematics. I have a PhD in Math, and I have done the same job in the recent past successfully at a sister institution. The department that I applied to showed another candidate with a MASTERS degree in APPLIED STATISTICS as their first candidate to the Dean's office and I was shown by the department as the second best candidate. (i.e. We were short list candidates, and the two of us were their top two choices, although the majority of the department showed the other person as their top choice.) The dean wanted me, the department thought otherwise.
Finally, it was called a "failed search" by the Dean's office and nobody got hired. I was a great fit.
Do I still have a case or a shot at complaining to the EEOC for discrimination?
