Faculty Search Resources
So that all of us can engage in upcoming faculty searches as ambassadors, bystanders, and representatives, we recommend reviewing the following resources.
- "Faculty Hiring - Effective Practices for Faculty Search Rubrics and Job Ads" by Joyce Yen, et al. (UW ADVANCE 2020)
- "Handbook of Best Practices for Faculty Searches" (UW Office for Faculty Advancement 2018)
- "Strategies to Improve Equity in Faculty Hiring" by Needhi Bhalla (Molecular Biology of the Cell 2019)
