If Voldemort was able to curse the DADA teaching position, why didn't he (or wasn't able to) curse the headmaster position? that could have helped him get Dumbledore out of his way for applying for position once again next year.

  • Maybe the headmaster's position somehow had more magical protection, which Hogwarts couldn't afford (or didn't bother) to give every member of staff? – Rand al'Thor Jan 27 '16 at 12:28
  • I think this would answer your question scifi.stackexchange.com/a/42993/54568 @rand al'thor you even edited the answer :P – Vanja Vasiljevic Jan 27 '16 at 12:31
  • @VanjaVasiljevic Aha! I was sure it was a duplicate, just couldn't find the other question! – Rand al'Thor Jan 27 '16 at 12:33
  • Pure speculation, but it might only be possible to curse a job position that isn't currently occupied. – Harry Johnston Jan 29 '16 at 11:37
