An assessment is made of each candidate's career experience, this being explored further when interviews and tests are conducted. These interviews will be conducted between 16 May 2021 and 10 June 2022.
    • Official communication of the results. The selection committee (formed by the vice president for teaching and learning, the vice president for strategic planning and research, the faculty dean and the UOC Personnel department) decides who should fill the vacancy. The selection committee may seek external advice if this would be particularly relevant. Official notification of the outcome of the selection process will be given by means of an email sent to all the candidates. This notification will be made around 22 June, 2022. The selection committee's decision is final, and will be emailed to the applicant.

    You may not apply for more than three vacancies during the same recruitment period. Once you have selected the fields of study in which you would teach, they cannot be changed. Once you have applied for a position, the status of your candidacy will be shown as "applied". It will only be updated to "in process" if you progress through the pre-selection stage. The status of your candidacy will be shown as "finalist" or "declined" once the selection process has finished.
