Start-up Recommendations

Recommendations to make an offer are made to the Associate Dean assigned to the search and the Executive Associate Dean.  

At the same time, departments must specify the office and laboratory space the candidate will occupy. If renovations are necessary, the department must speak with Associate Dean Henrik Aratyn about the feasibility and costs of the proposed alterations. The Dean’s Office and department must come to an agreement on these matters before an offer can be made.

For candidates requiring start-up funds, the Executive Officer submits the startup recommendation developed in consultation of the candidate to the College. Items that might already be available or provided from other sources should be clearly specified. These and other costs should be submitted to the College along with other components of the offer letter (see Offer Letters). Candidates hired under the UFRP program are eligible for startup funds from the university. For departments in the natural sciences and Psychology startup costs are shared between the college and the department.
