How do I apply for a position?

The majority of the faculty positions require that you apply using Interfolio. Application instructions will be clearly listed on each job posting.  Follow the instructions listed.
Positions using Interfolio will not have an Apply Button.  Simply click on the URL listed on the job posting under Application Instructions to be directed to Interfolio.

 

What is Interfolio?
Interfolio is an online recruitment platform used to collect scholarly application materials for faculty positions.  There is no cost to apply using the system.  See image below for details.

 

 

Do I need to create a UMBC PageUp account?

If you are applying for a position using the Interfolio system, you do not need to create an account for the UMBC PageUp applicant tracking system (the log-in button on the Current Opportunity web page).
Positions such as Librarians will apply using the UMBC PageUp system and therefore, will need to create an account in order to apply.

 

How often are the position listings updated?
