New Appointment on the Investigator Track

FSM faculty appointments require approval by the FSM Dean, FSM APT Committee (if applicable), and NU Provost.  For appointments of tenure-eligible Investigators (Assistant/Associate Professor ranks), those approvals are typically obtained before the offer letter is sent to the candidate, but for tenured Investigators (Associate/Full Professor ranks), those approvals are typically obtained after the candidate has accepted the offer.

Now that your finalist has accepted your offer, follow these steps to complete the paperwork needed to obtain appointment approvals (if applicable) and to finalize the appointment in FASIS, generating the netID and NU email address.
