Can I fax, mail or submit a hard copy of my resume?

All applications must be submitted online through the UC San Diego job site

How long are jobs posted on the UC San Diego website?

The length of time a job is posted depends on several factors. Is it an internal or external recruitment? Does the applicant pool have a sufficient number of applicants and does it reflect the diverse population of Health Sciences?
Internal recruitments are posted for a minimum of 7 days and external recruitments are posted for a minimum of 14 days.

If any recruitment does not have a reasonable number of qualified diverse candidates, then it may be left open with an extended deadline. However, a hire for any recruitment can be made at any time after the original closing date even if the extended date has not been reached. 

How can I check the status of my application(s)?

Access your applicant profile at, then go to 'My Jobs' and see 'Current Status'.

What happens after my application is referred to a hiring manager?
