I am considering applying for academic jobs with opportunities for clinical work as well as translational research. What is the typical time frame to hear back from the department after completion of a job application regarding the interview and a job offer after the interview, assuming the job ad is legitimate (not a fake formality job ad with a internal selected candidate already) and you do get the interview and the job eventually?

Obviously depends on many factors, but if they are actively seeking to fill a role, you may hear back about interviews right away if you have an outstanding application and they dont have a backlog of similar candidates. I found that the real drag was the period between bwing told they want to hire you and getting that contract in hand
Sometimes that can be 3-6 months.
