Prospective Faculty & Hiring

One of the most important and potentially long-lasting decisions made at Wellesley College is the faculty that we hire.

We are committed to hiring the very best candidates for faculty positions, judiciously culled from a broad and varied pool of candidates. Broad, inclusive searches are essential to achieving faculty diversity.

This section is designed for potential applicants: We provide a list of tenure track faculty positions available at the College this year, as well as a brochure for prospective faculty. It is also designed for academic department chairs and search committees: We provide data on available applicants by disciplines and subfields, guidelines on how to conduct searches with broad outreach that meet federal and College requirements, and resources for locating a diverse pool of candidates.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact:

Kathryn Lynch, Ph.D.
Dean of Faculty Affairs
