Distinguished Senior Scientist Recruitment Program

A committee of prominent faculty members has been assembled to assist with the faculty recruitment process.  The committee solicits candidate nominations from academic unit deans, pan-University institute directors, and science, engineering, and medicine department chairs and faculty members.  The committee provides evaluations of nominated candidates, including a thoughtful description of the potential impact of each candidate’s research on University programs.  For more information or to submit a nomination, contact Jeff Blank.

Working with the President, the Provost and Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies will narrow the list of candidates to those identified as top priorities for recruitment. 

Every effort will be made to identify and recruit female candidates and candidates from other under-represented groups.

The Provost and Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies will develop recruitment packages in collaboration with the academic units that will house prospective faculty members.  

The President also will participate in candidate identification, evaluation, and recruitment, and approve all offers before they are tendered.
