The College of Arts & Sciences is committed to the proactive recruitment and identification of talented faculty, based on their ability to contribute to the college’s strategic goals and Georgia State University’s mission. We believe that innovative research and teaching develop in diverse, intellectually rigorous, and thriving academic communities. Faculty search and hiring processes are designed to build such a community in Arts & Sciences.
Please go to https://faculty.gsu.edu/for-staff/hiring for detailed information about faculty appointment types, faculty hiring procedures, and necessary forms. The College is committed to building a thriving, diverse, and innovative faculty through equitable and transparent search processes. As part of the faculty search process, the Office of Opportunity Development & Diversity Education (ODDEP) invites applicants to participate in the Confidential Applicant Flow Information Survey (http://odaa.gsu.edu/resources/forms/confidential-applicant-flow-information-survey/). Candidate responses are never forwarded to search committees; this information is collected so the university can confirm that search committees are actively pursuing diverse candidate pools.
The College of Arts & Sciences requires all search committee chairs to receive training before a job ad posting is approved and forwarded to the Provost’s Office. Trainings are generally offered once in the summer, once at the beginning of fall semester and, if needed, once in the spring semester. In addition, the Dean’s Office offers Search Advocate Training so that search committee members who have been trained to safeguard searches from implicit bias are available to committees throughout the college. This training is offered each year during the spring semester. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Posting Job ads: We commonly post ads in the following venues, as appropriate for the position. Individual departments should also post in venues appropriate for their disciplines
Applicant Clearinghouse, Black Doctoral Network, Chronical of Higher Education, department websites and social media, Latin American Studies Association, and Mellon Foundation (for humanities positions).
Thank you for considering the College of Arts & Sciences as your future professional home! Please feel free to contact Associate Dean Kathryn McClymond (email@example.com) at any time during your candidacy if you have questions that the search committee cannot answer or if you prefer to talk with someone privately about specific questions or interests.
