Faculty Hiring Plan

The Faculty Hiring Plan (FHP) is a list of the faculty positions your department intends to conduct searches for in the upcoming fiscal year. It is prepared in the spring and is due at the time of the department's budget.

In FY20, we will continue the practice of including only a subset of Clinician-Educator positions on the hiring plan. Your final hiring plan will include: 

  • Full-time Investigators (including those paid 100 percent by an approved affiliate)
  • Full-time Team Scientists (including those paid 100 percent by an approved affiliate)
  • Full-time Clinician-Educators, if any one or more of the following conditions are met:
    • Feinberg salary is 10 percent or higher
    • There are Feinberg commitments beyond salary (e.g., start-up funding)
    • The Clinician-Educator would fill a leadership role
  • Positions that already have search numbers and you intend to keep open (even Clinician-Educators that don't meet the conditions above) so that the Provost's Office knows we aren't closing them
