Yes, See... in academia you never call ahead of time.
I did not want to sound pushy by calling them. I was just assuming that like in academia, they take all the CVs that they get, and make their selection based on their requirements, then make a short list, get some people for interviews... and so on. It turns out that I also have to learn how to apply for the jobs not only the job itself. People in academia are sometimes, how should I say... "autistic" in their interaction to the rest of the world.
