Start a Search – Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) approved Tenure Track Faculty (TTF)

Steps to beginning an IHP TTF search include:

  1. Following release of the Institutional Hiring Plan, the Office of the Provost (OtP) will create a requisition in MyTrack for the approved tenure-track position. For more information about the workflow for launching a TTF search, see the 2021 IHP TTF Process page.
  2. The development of robust Search Plans with Active Recruitment Strategies (Search Plans) is required before searches may be advertised.
    1. OtP and HR have collaborated to create a Search Plan Template to assist units in creating search plans.
    2. Search committees are expected to use the search practices outlined in the Expected Practices for UO Tenure Track Faculty Searches document and outline their search plan in MyTrack
    3. Your Recruitment Consultant will review Search Plans as part of the MyTrack search approval process, in consultation with the Office of the Provost as needed.
  3. Build out the position announcement in the MyTrack system. See guidance for preparing the position announcement here.
  4. Following approval of the position announcement in MyTrack, the posting will be added to the University’s careers website.
    NOTE: If the search committee will be accepting applications through Academic Jobs Online or MathJobs, the search administrator will set up the search at this stage and will coordinate posting the AJO or MathJobs link on the University’s careers website with the Talent Acquisition Team.
