Because our system does not allow you to set up an account, you must complete the application process in a single sitting.

The application consists of four pages. On the first page, you should ensure you've selected the proper position, and designate the rank(s) (Assistant, Associate, and/or Full professor) for your application (you may select multiple ranks if appropriate). The second page contains fields for your contact information. Fields marked with an asterisk are required. Take your time and check your entries - - there is no spell checker or field validation, so check your spelling and accuracy thoroughly!! The third page is OPTIONAL EEOC data collection. All of the data you typed on the second page is displayed at the top of page 3. CHECK YOUR ADDRESS INFO NOW, and go back to page 2 if you need to correct any errors! All EEOC questions on page 3 are optional. You can choose whether or not to leave page 3 blank.

Page four is where you'll upload your application materials and provide names and email addresses for your letters of reference. There are upload fields for "Cover Letter", "CV", "Curriculum", and "Other". Each field permits ONE attachment only. PDF files are strongly preferred; maximum 5MB per pdf. "COVER LETTER" and "CV" are self-explanatory. Upload your Job Market Paper to "CURRICULUM". If desired, use "OTHER" to upload one combined PDF file containing optional documents (such as additional research papers, teaching or research statements, teaching evaluations, etc).

We require a minimum of three and a maximum of five names and email addresses for reference letters. An email requesting upload of your reference letter will be sent automatically to each of your references upon final submission of your application. The reference request email will be sent from the email address: "". Note: Unique email addresses are NOT required. If an administrator will be submitting your recommendation letters, please enter the FACULTY MEMBER's name into the first and last name fields, and use the administrator's email address for as many of the recommendation letters as is appropriate. If you want to be notified when recommendation letters are uploaded, CHECK THE BOX requesting notification of reference letter uploads BEFORE you click on the SUBMIT button!! (If your letter writers don't appear to receive a request to upload your letter, please have them check their JUNKMAIL, SPAM, and TRASH folders.  The upload invitation email might have been incorrectly identified as spam or a phishing message!)

WARNING! When you click the SUBMIT button, your application is submitted to USC. There is NO secondary submission confirmation request to allow you to back out, make changes, and submit again. Be sure all of your data is correct and complete (especially the email addresses and uploaded documents) BEFORE you click on the Submit button.
