New Tool for Faculty Searches

Owl detail on column

A new tool, Faculty Search from Interfolio, was launched on November 1, 2020. This system is expected to deliver an improved experience for faculty search committee members, compared with the current system,RICEWorks. In conjunction with the imagineOne project, RICEWorks will no longer be used by Rice, starting in July 2021. Therefore, the rollout of Faculty Search will be in two phases: Phase One (November 2020 - June 2021): New faculty postings will be in Faculty Search; postings already live in RICEWorks will continue in RICEWorks. Phase Two (starting July 2021): All faculty postings will be in Faculty Search, unless a specific exception has been granted.
