Advertising Guidelines

Advertisements of vacant positions for both tenure stream and term appointments must be placed widely. This is particularly important if in the end the successful candidate is not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada.  As per section 3.3 of Policy HR11 – Employment Advertising (formerly Policy #20) procedures tenure stream positions must be posted in four places.  Note that placing on multiple UBC sites is considered one placement.  For term appointments we recommend posting in a minimum of three places.

For Lecturer positions note that at the Head’s discretion the position may be posted internally only if the appointment is filled by a candidate who is currently a Sessional Lecturer in the unit (see Article 12 of Part 7, Conditions of Appointment for Sessional Faculty Members).  Otherwise the posting must be placed externally as per Policy HR11..
