If you are planning on hiring non-student personnel (this includes, for example, post-doctoral fellows, and professional staff) to support your research, we recommend that you use the procedures outlined in this document to aid you in this task.

Please start by filling out the online Research Personnel New Hire Form.

After you fill out the form, this will generate an email to Human Resources for review. If the funding for this position is from an external funding source, then the information will be shared with our Grant & Financial Accountant.

Additionally, if any teaching duties are anticipated, then approval will need to be received from the Provostʼs Office after review of the teaching expectations. While this information will be shared with the Provostʼs Office in such a case, it would be helpful to notify the Provostʼs Office at the same time that you submit this form.

Once all approvals are received, an offer letter will be prepared with a signature from the Director of Human Resources, and if appropriate, with a signature from the Associate Provost. You will have an opportunity to review this letter before it is sent to the candidate.
