The Office of Human Resources (OHR) requires that all active SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty position openings be posted with the State’s minimum requirements and, as appropriate, any additional position requirements listed by the hiring department. OHR also publishes a job listing of open SHRA positions under active recruitment.

The SHRA Permanent Job Postings List serves as a recruitment tool and satisfies State and Federal recruitment requirements. It is published every Wednesday, and is posted at the Office of Human Resources, Administrative Office Building, 104 Airport Drive, Chapel Hill, NC. SHRA and EHRA-NF postings are updated nightly on the OHR website. The University’s Academic Personnel Office posts all Faculty openings with position details on-line.

Within OHR, Employment & Staffing collaborates with schools and departments regarding the utilization of Graystone Advertising in relation to the external placement of all SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty permanent and temporary advertisements on behalf of UNC-Chapel Hill.

Upon request from schools or departments, Graystone Advertising also places external recruitment advertisements for Faculty employment opportunities. When advertisements for Faculty are to be placed in advertising venues other than the University’s own website, the proposed advertisements must be attached to a copy of posting in PeopleAdmin.

Common advertising options for Faculty and EHRA Non-Faculty positions include national or regional professional journals and newspapers, letters/announcements to schools, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and Diverse Issues in Higher Education. In addition, the EOC Office has purchased a membership subscription to the National Minority Faculty ID Program.
Publication dates for national and professional journals will need to be considered to ensure the application deadline is 30 to 45 days after the print advertisement appears.
