2. Be sure to fill out all of the information required on the eForm as completely and accurately as possible. Faculty appointments begin July 1, September 1 or February 1, and terminate effective February 1 or July 1; if any other start or end date is to be considered, chairs should consult the Dean of the Faculty.
3. In each case it is necessary to specify a basic FTE salary, even for those individuals who are being appointed for less than the full 9-month academic year or less than full-time. The percentage of duty time of the appointment for the term of appointment or for the academic year should also be indicated, and the actual salary to be received should be consistent with the indicated FTE salary and duty time. If any fraction of the salary is to be charged to accounts other than the general departmental account, please indicate the accounts and either the dollar or percentage amounts of salary to be charged.
4. For those appointments for which departmental approval is required, please indicate the date of the meeting at which the appointment was discussed, the total number of individuals actually attending that meeting in person, and the vote tally; abstentions refer to faculty members in attendance at the meeting, but not voting.
5. Please be sure to specify the resources needed
in as much detail as possible and to confirm with the Dean of the Faculty and Provost if there are any unusual or large resource requirements. The resources for an appointment must be approved before an offer can be made for a new appointment.
Please note that a search form, evidence of successful completion of a background check, verification of degree and/or proof of PhD must accompany all appointments for which a search is required, regardless of length of appointment or duty time. The only exceptions to these requirements are for (1) a visiting appointment, and (2) a current member of the University’s administrative staff, a professional librarian, a professor researcher, or a professional specialist.
