What is Interfolio?

Faculty searches are a balancing act for institutions. Interfolio designed Faculty Search to facilitate an easier and more transparent search process for everyone from committee members to administrators, diversity officers to the applicants themselves.  This online applicant tracking and recruitment system allows you to collect, view and discuss application materials securely.

Important notes:

UTK faculty positions that are required to follow the OED academic search process, including tenure-track or department heads/directors, should be created in Interfolio by the department or college respectively, using the position type “UTK Tenure Track Faculty”. To post all other positions, including UTK Non-Tenure Track and all UTIA faculty positions, contact HR to post the position.

Workflow in Interfolio at the steps of Creating a Position and Closing a Position take the place of the Request to Search and the Request to Make an Offer forms for UTK Tenure Track searches. A new process for the Narrative Summary has been developed. Click here for detailed steps to complete the Narrative Summary Online Form and the Narrative Summary Interfolio Report.
