Non-student Personnel Hiring
If you are planning to hire non-student personnel (this includes, for example, post-doctoral fellows and professional staff) to support your research, please contact Julie Novack in HR to start the process.
If the funding for the position is from an external funding source, HR will coordinate with the Controller's Office to set up the hire appropriately.
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.
