Application Process for Faculty Positions
Applications are accepted for posted vacancies only. Applicants interested in adjunct teaching positions should contact the department of interest directly. Applicants for a specific job posting must apply online at www.tntech.edu/jobs and complete a Tennessee Technological University application and electronically upload all required documents to be considered a viable applicant for the position. Hard copy and/or faxed materials will not be accepted unless specifically requested in Special Instructions to Applicants. Submission of these materials is the applicant’s responsibility. APPLICATIONS WITHOUT ALL REQUIRED MATERIALS ARE INCOMPLETE AND WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
Each section of the application form should be completed; type N/A if not applicable and/or 'see resume' if requested information can be found on your resume. It is a Class A misdemeanor to misrepresent academic credentials. (T.C.A. Sec. 49-7-133) Faculty positions normally have screening dates rather than firm deadline dates. Applications are ensured full consideration if received by the screening date listed on the job announcement. Applications received after that date may or may not be reviewed depending upon the progress of the search.
Applicants applying for different positions must apply separately (applications are stored online) and a separate set of documents must be electronically uploaded as required in the application procedure on the job announcement for each position. All application materials become the property of TTU and will not be returned.
The university is required by federal/state employment reporting regulations to maintain a record of applicant demographic data including gender, race, age, disability, and veteran status. Submitting this information is optional.
APPLICATION REVIEW PROCESS
After the application screening or deadline date, an appointed search committee will review the applications to check for completeness, determine which applicants possess the minimum qualifications, and will then select applicants for interview. Applicants who do not fully meet the qualifications will not be considered. Meeting the minimum qualifications does not assure applicants of an interview. Applicants selected for interview will be notified by telephone and will be interviewed by the search committee. All applicants will be notified by email when the position has been filled. If circumstances require searches to be extended or delayed, applicants will be notified of the status.
