Terras Irradient: The Faculty Hiring Process

Host Andrew Rosin ’25 breaks down everything you’ve ever wanted to know — but didn’t think to ask — about how new professors are hired.

How do departments decide which new professors to hire? Who allocates these hiring slots? What happens when a job search fails? On today's episode of Terras Irradient, Host Andrew Rosin ’25 is joined by the professors leading their respective department’s search committees, the chair of the Committee on Educational Policy, and professors hired as recently as last month to discuss each stage of the faculty hiring process.

Edited and produced by Andrew Rosin ’25.
