Positions should be advertised and nominations for them solicited in ways that will ensure appointments of the highest possible quality and that the appointments process will be consistent with the University’s goals of open access and diversity. Usually a search will include widespread advertisement, such as announcements in appropriate professional journals, on-line job lists, and newsletters, and at professional meetings, as well as contact with relevant departments and schools, either by letter, e-mail, or telephone. It is a Federal requirement to have at least one print advertisement in a professional publication. Departments are expected to take steps to ensure that whenever possible, the persons contacted for nominations and the candidate pool include women and members of underrepresented minority groups.

POSTDOCTORAL SEARCH - SAMPLE AD
The Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics invites applications for the YCAA Postdoctoral Prize Fellowship in Astronomy and Astrophysics, to be awarded to a young scientist of exceptional ability who will have received her/his Ph.D. by June 2011 in observational, theoretical, or experimental astronomy or astrophysics/cosmology. The Fellowship is for three years (renewed annually subject to performance), and offers competitive salary ($60,000), benefits, and research funds. Conveniently located between New York City and Boston, Yale offers a lively intellectual environment and access to world-class astronomical facilities, including the Keck, WIYN and SMARTS telescopes, and to Chilean telescopes through collaboration with the Univ. de Chile. Yale is an institutional member of the SDSS-3 collaboration, and the Fellow will have the opportunity to develop projects with these data. The Fellow will also have access to the High-Performance Computing facilities at Yale. The YCAA Prize Postdoctoral Fellow will be free to carry out his/her own research program, although preference will be given to research interests that align with those of the Yale astrophysics faculty (see www.yale.edu/ycaa/membership.html). Active research at Yale includes solar astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics, astrometry, star formation, stellar evolution, galactic structure, black holes, local group galaxies, high-energy astrophysics, multiwavelength surveys (QUEST, GOODS, COSMOS, MUSYC, SDSS), active galaxies and blazars, galaxy evolution, galaxy clusters, large-scale structure, gravitational lensing, dark matter, dark energy, and cosmology. Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, bibliography, and a brief description of the anticipated research program by November 12, 2010. Email submission as a pdf is strongly preferred. Candidates should also arrange for at least 3 letters of recommendation to arrive by November 12. Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for any open postdoctoral positions at Yale in their fields of interest, unless they ask to be considered only for the YCAA Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship. Yale is an Affirmative Action/ Equal Opportunity Employer, and we particularly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups.
