How to Apply for a Faculty Position

Your Curriculum Vita

Duquesne University selects applicants based on their knowledge, skills, and abilities and the correlation to the requirements of a particular position.

  • The curriculum vita is the main source of information concerning qualifications.
  • Because it is not possible to interview all applicants, be as specific and as thorough as possible in your letter of interest, curriculum vitae and/or employment application.
