Faculty Hiring

The faculty hiring process at the University of Utah is supervised by different offices to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations and recruit diverse pools of candidates. For academic departments and programs that are not part of the health sciences, the Office for Equity and Diversity provides oversight for faculty job posting and advertising, recruitment and position offers. The Office for Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action ensures that federal and state reporting requirements are met. The Office for Faculty provides oversight for the faculty appointment, hire, and tenure processes. For the School of Medicine and other health science academic departments and programs, oversight is provided by The Office of Faculty Administration in the School of Medicine.

The Office for Equity and Diversity strives to meet three goals in faculty recruitment:

  • Provide information to help departments recruit diverse pools of candidates;
  • Ensure that federal and state regulations are followed in recruitment and job offers;
  • Provide information and resources to assist departments in attracting and securing outstanding candidates.

For detailed information on the faculty hiring process, please review the Faculty Hiring Presentation and contact the appropriate office listed at the right.

The Office for Equity and Diversity in conjunction with University Human Resources and the Office of Faculty and Academic Personnel for the Health Sciences Campus will be launching a new online faculty recruitment and application system in the fall of 2011. We have contracted with PeopleAdmin, a vendor who specializes in higher education. All faculty, staff and student job postings and applications will be processed using PeopleAdmin beginning fall 2011. PeopleAdmin is accessed through the University’s Campus Information System.
