Faculty/Librarian Pre-search Process

Faculty and librarian recruiting are handled through the Office of the Provost and the schools. To post available faculty and librarian positions on the Greater Chicago Midwest Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (GCM HERC) website along with available staff positions, these job openings need to be entered in the eRecruit application.

The GCM HERC improves member institutions' recruitment and diversity efforts by assisting dual-career couples in finding suitable employment at academic institutions in the same region. www.gcmherc.org

The electronic self-identification process in eRecruit simplifies the collection of EOA information from faculty and librarian applicants.


To use eRecruit for the search process you must:

  1. Contact the Office of the Provost for authorization.
  2. Take a training session (HRS251 Faculty-Librarian eRecruit) for eRecruit.
  3. Create the position and job opening.
  4. Send self-identification requests to applicants.
  5. For questions regarding training, please contact the FASIS Help Desk at fasishelp@northwestern.edu

For clarification of the security roles for the search process, contact the Faculty Records Office at facultyrecords@northwestern.edu.
