FSM Resources for Faculty Search Committees

Faculty search committees put a great deal of time and effort into identifying the most talented pool of potential candidates from which to choose. It is also a Feinberg and Northwestern University priority that faculty searches tap into the breadth of talent in groups of individuals who may not be as familiar with Northwestern, especially groups who are underrepresented in medicine and biomedical research. Creating awareness within these groups of the great opportunities at Feinberg, and specific faculty openings, can be a challenge.  Below are resources to assist faculty search committees.

Northwestern University's Resources for Faculty Search Committees

The Office of the Provost has developed resources that search committees may wish to review.  Please note that not all guidance is directly relevant to the medical school.
