Faculty Position Recommendation Guidelines

1. Make sure I know you well enough to write a letter before asking.

2. If you do want me to write you a letter, you will need to ask me by August 15.  If I say yes, then I will need electronic copies of ALL of your information by September 15. If I don’t have all the information, I can’t write a letter and you will have to find someone else.

3. Once I have agreed to write a letter, please email me (no paper versions please) by September 15th the listed items below, preferably in a single email unless short deadlines would make that less useful.  If you are applying to multiple places, please give me all requests at once if possible.

a. Your C.V.

b. A sample coverletter

c. Your research proposals (a draft is okay)

d. Short summaries of past research

e. A master table of all the schools to which you are applying in the format below. Make sure to list the applications chronologically with the earliest due date listed first.
