7.1.E. Identification of Candidates, Diversity Considerations

Instructor positions are not normally subject to the posting and search procedures required for other exempt appointments to the University staff. Candidates currently affiliated with Stanford in some other capacity (e.g., Postdoctoral Fellow) are often identified as potential Instructors. Other candidates may emerge as a result of networking conducted at peer institutions.

In their identification of candidates, departments are expected to keep in mind Stanford’s commitment to diversity and to the recruitment of women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
