Faculty Hiring Manual 2023–24
Section 5: Offer, Pre-Employment Screenings, and Onboarding

Unit Chairs must consult with their Dean to verify that the candidate and the financial terms the department seeks are satisfactory. At Rutgers, formal offers are typically extended to candidates by the Dean, who should ensure that the salary level and any start-up costs are consistent with what is being offered in similar units at Rutgers and comparable universities and made in accordance with applicable collective bargaining agreements. If applicable, the Dean should also consult with the Chancellor to obtain final approval to extend the offer.

The Rutgers University Faculty Hiring Manual is intended to support efforts in Rutgers departments, colleges/schools, and other academic units across our chancellor-led units. It outlines university policies, procedures, and best practices for identifying, selecting, and hiring exemplary future colleagues whose research, teaching, and service will advance the university's mission.
