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 http://jobs.ucsd.edu.

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 http://jobs.ucsd.edu, then go to 'My Jobs' and see 'Current Status'.

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

The hiring manager will determine which candidates will move forward in the hiring process.

How do I know if a position is full-time or part-time?

A 100% position is a full-time position equaling 40 hours per week. A 90% position equals 36 hours per week, usually consisting of three 12 hour shifts in a seven day period. A 60% position equals 24 hours per week. Most positions at 49% or below are Per Diem positions and are not guaranteed any hours. A Per Diem position is one that supplements scheduling in a department on a pre-scheduled or on an as-needed basis as determined by management.
