The 2018 Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) was developed by Provost Jayanth Banavar, based on proposals from faculty and academic leadership, and in consultation with the Provost’s Deans Hiring Advisory Committee and the seven-member Provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee. It authorized tenure-track faculty searches for the 2018-19 academic year. As of mid-April 2019, 41 tenure-track faculty had been successfully hired through efforts related to the 2018 IHP.
Highlights of the 2018 IHP included synergies around creating or enhancing strength in data science and analytics, human health and neuroscience, business, positions in the new Knight Campus, and interdisciplinary approaches to social and humanist issues. The plan also reflects the university’s ongoing commitment to established clusters such as Genome Function, Neurons to Minds, and Volcanology.
