Searches for Full-Time Faculty

This page contains important documents related to hiring full-time faculty.  For complete policies, procedures and guidelines please refer to the Search Committee Manual.

Filling A Vacancy
When the chair of division or unit administrator, in consultation with the dean and the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) determine a vacancy in a department exists, the chair shall, with the dean and CAO's approval, appoint a search committee.  Prior to the search, the rank and salary range of the position shall be recommended to the CAO by the appropriate dean.  The CAO shall inform the division chair or unit administrator and the search committee of the range.  The division chair then submits to the dean a completed  Human Resources Action Form which is forwarded to Academic Affairs.  A search can not begin until this form is complete and has been approved by the CAO and Financial Affairs.

Advertising for a Search
Once a search has been authorized the Office of Academic Affairs will place a job posting on and the same posting will be listed on the JU "Employment Opportunities" web page.  If the department wants the job to be posted on a specific journal site the information must be sent to Academic Affairs.  Due to the extreme cost and limited exposure, ads will not be posted in the Times-Union newspaper.
