1. Create a user name and password

Visit RECRUIT, the University of California, Irvine, online academic employment system where you will be required to select a Username, Password, and then enter your First and Last Name, E-mail address, and select (from the drop-down menu) the position for which you are applying.

After successfully entering this information, you will be presented with your login information [you can print this page for your records] and a link to log into the RECRUIT system. You will not be able to continue until you complete the application form.

Please note, if you are applying for more than one position, you will need to go back and create a new username and separate application for each job.



2. Complete the application

Your application is considered complete once you have finished the application form, provided three references, and uploaded these required files: a letter of interest (Cover Letter), curriculum vitae (CV), representative preprints/reprints (publications). These documents are preferred in the PDF format.

If you do not have the tools to create documents in PDF, you can use publicly available tools such as www.ps2pdf.com or www.fastpdf.com.

All submitted documents must be under 2 MB. If you have files that are in special formats or larger than 2MB, you should host them externally and provide a URL address on the "Edit Your Application Information" page indicating where all your additional documents can be found for review.

You are welcome to provide a statement of research and teaching, but this is not required. You may upload this under one of the "Related Documents" heading in the "Upload and Manage Your Files" page.

If you do not have electronic versions of your publications or other related documents, you are welcome to forward them via US Mail to: Department of Criminology, Law and Society, University of California-Irvine, 2340 Social Ecology Bldg II, Irvine, CA, 92697-7080.

3. Provide at least 3 references

To submit your reference names, enter the 'Manage Your Reference List' section of the RECRUIT system or click on the '˜Name at least 3 references' link on the Application Information page. For each reference it will be necessary to provide contact information including an e-mail address.

It is your responsibility to contact each of the references and tell them how to submit a reference for you. The process is described on the page where the references are entered. Your letter writer will not be able to electronically submit a letter of support unless the email address submitted by you (the applicant) matches their login (email address) entry. You will be provided a "token'¿ (i.e, password) to be used by all your letter writers to gain access to the system. [The system will provide a sample of what you can send to your letter writers '“ just cut and paste this information into an email, including the email address you entered for each letter writer]. Once a reference has submitted a letter for you, a check mark will appear next to his/her name so that you know the letter has been submitted, but you will NOT be able to view the submitted document.
