Post Doctoral Recruitment

Post-Doctoral Associate and Fellow Recruitment Process

Supervisor Training is Highly Recommended Once Every Five Years.

Under Federal regulations, without exception, ALL recruitment searches must be processed through ROCS.

LARFs are not required to recruit Post-Doctoral Associates and Fellows!

Prior to entering ROCS, initiators must have available the following information/items: a prepared justification letter from the Chair to the Dean indicating the need for this search; obtain the necessary account information which will fully fund this position; a detailed posting summary; any educational or special requirements you may want to indicate in the posting; the names and email addresses of each search committee member, and the individual designated as the Applicant Reviewer (having the ability to modify the status of applicants in ROCS system); indicate period posting will remain open (note, there is a two-week minimum posting period at which time the expired posting will automatically close) unless you have indicated 'Open Until Filled'. Please remember, an EEO Approval email is required for each candidate who is selected for an interview. Once the Selection Committee has completed its search, and all other applicants have been dispositioned, the Applicant Reviewer will now select the “Finalist”. Upon this selection, an email will automatically be generated to UHR signaling them to begin the background investigation process.  Once the background check has been completed, UHR will email you a certification so you may proceed with the hire.  The Initiator will then notify SEBS-HR to change the status of the posting to 'Closed/Filled'. The Department’s administrator can proceed with an offer only after ensuring the required documents listed under the Post-Doctoral Appointment Process tab have been collected.
