Video Series: Applying for Faculty Positions

In this video series, we describe how to strategically position yourself as a competitive candidate for faculty positions. First, we introduce the types of faculty positions in the U.S., the basic elements of the application package and the steps of the hiring process. Then, we describe what faculty hiring committees are looking for in applications and how you can present your strengths in your application materials. We use the Academic Career Readiness Assessment (ACRA) Framework, a tool developed with the input from faculty members who have been on hiring committees at diverse types of institutions.
