Faculty/Librarian eRecruit

    Faculty and librarian recruiting is processed in coordination with the Office of the Provost and the hiring school. The myHR Faculty eRecruit process contains three main components utilized during the faculty/librarian hiring; access may be provided to one or more of these functions as necessary:

    1. Faculty/Librarian Pre-Search
      This process allows for a faculty or librarian posting position to be requested from the Office of the Provost. The approved posting position is then entered into eRecruit by the department's Faculty Data Coordinator, which allows the opening to appear on Northwestern's Jobs website, the Greater Chicago Midwest Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (GCM HERC) job board, and other advertising destinations via Graystone Advertising.
    2. Self-Identification Emails
      This function provides a means for hiring departments and schools to solicit applicant self-identification information, in accordance with federal Equal Employment Opportunity regulations.
    3. eOffer
      The eOffer page is a secure process to manage electronic tracking of negotiations and offer letters, including approval of offers by the Office of the Provost, Office for Research, and other required parties.
