Applicant FAQs

How do I apply for a jobs at Tulane?

Go to Tulane.edu/jobs and click the blue “Search for Jobs” button to get started.  Please review this presentation for more details about the Tulane Jobs site, how to search for jobs, and how to apply.
Faculty and postdoctoral fellow positions are also posted on Interfolio.com.  This is a third-party website that requires registration.

What if I don't have a resume or CV to attach in iRecruitment?

You can apply without one.  There is a section of the application that asks for details about your experience, educations, and licenses/certifications.  You can type this information directly into the application.

Do I need to attach a cover letter and references?

To apply, a cover letter and references are not required.  However, a cover letter gives you the chance to communicate your goals and skills more effectively, so it is encouraged.  References are not required on the application, but you may be asked by the hiring manager for references if you advance in the interview process.

If a position I saw on Tulane Jobs is no longer posted, can I still apply?

If a job is not posted currently on Tulane Jobs, we are not accepting applications for it.  If a position closes in the near future, and you encounter technical issues submitting an application, please contact us and we should be able to assist.  If you see a Tulane job posted on a third-party website (except for Interfolio), it may not be a current posting.  The most current postings are on Tulane Jobs.

What is the status of my application?

After you submit your application, your application status will be visible in your Tulane Jobs/iRecruitment account in the Job Basket section.  The status is updated in real time.  “Under Departmental Review” means that the department recruiting for the position has your application and is reviewing it.  They will reach out to you directly if they want to have an interview, so please ensure your contact information is current.  If you are not selected for a position, the status will read “Not Selected.”

Where are Tulane Medical Center jobs posted?

Tulane Jobs will have a variety of medical positions posted, but since Tulane University and a separate company named HCA co-own and operate Tulane Medical Center, other medical jobs (for employment with HCA, not the university), will be posted on HCA’s careers website.

Does Tulane assist with relocation expenses?

Depending on the level and type of position, the department hiring for the position may have the ability to offer a relocation package to candidates moving to New Orleans from out of town.  If you are offered a position, your hiring manager can provide details.

How long does the hiring process take?

Because different departments with different functions and schedules recruit and interview, the timeframe for a decision and hire varies significantly.  Our goal is for the process to be thorough but not take longer than is necessary.

I require a visa or work permit to work in the United States. Can I be sponsored?

Tulane regularly sponsors workers requiring visas or work permits, but these are decided on a case-by-case basis.  All international and domestic workers will have to successfully complete the I-9/E-Verify process upon hire to confirm eligibility to work in the US.

Where can I find information about the University's Equal Employment Opportunity responsibilities?

You can view this information here: EEO is the Law and Supplement.  Tulane does hold federal government contracts and is subject to the relevant EEO stipulations.  You can also learn more about Tulane’s active work toward maintaining EEO and internal equity by visiting the Tulane University Office of Institutional Equity website.
