under construction and in draft form
A faculty search is usually initiated near the beginning of an academic year and concludes toward the end of Winter quarter, by which time a leading job candidate usually emerges and the search process gives way to a faculty appointment process (to be linked). But the search process is actually initiated in the preceding Spring, when--usually in April--the Dean sends department chairs and DLCL managers a memorandum regarding search requests, which typically includes a summary of the billets already assigned to the department as well as a search request form, for which a submission deadline is provided.
A sketch of the search request process is below. Further down the page, you can review a sketch of the search process itself, and faculty search checklists are supplied as downloadable documents.
Search request process
Because the DLCL'S Assistant Manager coordinates faculty searches, appointments and promotions at the Divisional level, he or she usually works with department chairs to coordinate search requests for all departments in the DLCL.
