Recruiting and retaining talented faculty in research, teaching and service is one of the most important functions of the University. Universities are increasingly competing for the same highly accomplished faculty candidates. This Academic Search Portal provides information, resources and discussions to help search committee members, and indeed the entire faculty and administration, to be conversant with the broad spectrum of research and best practices that are proven to attract the best and most diverse faculty candidates. It also includes information on best practices for dual career candidates.Information about how to mitigate implicit bias in the search process is also included. An important element of any search is to welcome the new hires when they come on grounds.
Parts of this portal were originally created by UVA CHARGE and funded by the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Grant #1209197. We thank other ADVANCE grantees for some of the information on this site.
