Faculty Hiring

The Office of the Provost (OtP) facilitates tenure-track faculty (TTF) hiring at the University of Oregon using the processes and programs below. TTF hiring follows the University of Oregon’s Institutional Hiring Plan.

Non-tenure-track faculty hiring is overseen by the schools, colleges or institutes who employ them.

The Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) guides tenure-track faculty hiring at the University of Oregon. The IHP timeline process begins in the fall with a call for proposals, and includes several stages of input and review before the provost announces the final IHP in the spring.
Under a partnership between the Office of the Provost and the Division of Equity and Inclusion, we are providing this advice and guidance to administrators about the recruitment process for tenure-track faculty.
Now updated with the TTF hiring process for the 2021-22 search year. 
The TTF Contingent Offer Letter Term Sheet is a resource for units to use when hiring new tenure-related faculty. Developed in consultation with the schools and colleges, the term sheet develops a customized summary and contingent offer letter based on data entered by the unit.
OtP offers academic units and offices with resources to support dual career partners.  The dual career liaison works individually with the partners of TTF and senior officers of administration on their on- and off-campus job searches and career transitions.
The Target of Opportunity program has been developed to allow the university to expedite the hiring process of exceptional faculty members with established records of excellence.
