Managing Implicit Bias Required Training
As part of UC's commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, the Managing Implicit Bias Series was created to increase awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact at the University. 

The Managing Implicit Bias Series is a six-course online training series that complements UC San Diego’s existing equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. It is especially important for hiring managers and search committee members to be aware of implicit bias and how it impacts the way we work, interact with others, and make hiring decisions.

Executive Recruitment Services provides comprehensive, national search firm services for high-level recruitments. The Executive Recruiter works with the hiring manager and search committee to get an in-depth understanding of the department needs and provides specific search elements to build a strong candidate pool.

Posting Advertising Options
All jobs are automatically posted on the UCSD Job Bulletin, UC Jobs, Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), Diverse Jobs, and America's Job Exchange (AJE). Your HR Representative can provide additional paid advertising options and prices.
