How can I follow up on a submitted application?
The majority of the positions require a two week posting period before applications can be reviewed. In most cases, the review process takes several weeks, if not months. After the department begins reviewing applications, they will contact applicants of interest directly for telephone screening and/or an in-person interview. While most applicants are initially contacted via telephone, they may also be contacted through e-mail. Make sure to check your spam folder as in some cases e-mails can be filtered by your service provider.
How can I find the hiring manager or lead recruiter on this posting?
For a variety of reasons, including privacy protection, we are not able to provide that information.  If you would like to address your cover letter, you can address it to “Dear Hiring Manager” or “Dear Hiring Committee.”
