The University of Washington uses Interfolio’s Faculty Search to manage competitive searches of academic personnel¬†including faculty, librarians, and other academic staff. FS is not used for recruitment of classified or professional staff.

A competitive search in this context is any search which you advertise and intend to solicit applications. Some academic personnel titles require competitive recruitment; others do not. Units should review the Academic Titles and Ranks page to determine whether the position they seek to fill requires competitive recruitment. Under certain circumstances, a unit can request a search waiver to exempt them from full search procedures. Regardless of whether a competitive recruitment is required, if you choose to conduct a search, it must run through FS.
