Faculty Search Resources

UMass Amherst recognizes each faculty recruitment as an opportunity to better serve our mission and identify talent that propels us forward as an institution and advances our diversity goals.

Faculty Search Activities Guide

The Faculty Search Activities Guide serves as a single, comprehensive resource for search committees, academic administrators and college staff involved in tenure-track searches. This guide outlines how the search process proceeds, provides a description of the respective responsibilities of those involved, and serves as a resource for conducting a successful search. 

Partner Employment Program

We recognize the increasing importance of accommodating dual career families and the considerable benefit of such accommodation to the University in attracting and retaining faculty. When possible, the University is committed to an effort to facilitate such arrangements and has therefore adopted a Partner Employment Program. Learn about the Partner Employment Program.
