Faculty Recruiting System

The Faculty Recruiting System (FRS) is Northwestern University's system for managing faculty searches. Northwestern requires that applicants to full-time faculty positions (on the Clinician-Educator, Investigator, and Team Scientist career tracks) apply online through FRS, which also has an administrative interface for accessing and tracking applications. Faculty search committee members have access to this system by default, but Feinberg recommends treating FRS as an administrative system used only by department administrators and staff who assist the search committee with its duties.
