How to Apply

1. View current openings.

View a listing of academic faculty UNLV job announcements on HigherEdJobs.com. Select the position of interest to view the full job announcement.

2. Use Consensus to apply.

At the end of the job announcement, click on the "Online Application Form" link to apply. This will take you to UNLV's online application system, Consensus.

3. Create a user ID and password.

In Consensus, you will be asked for a user ID number and password. Select any combination of letters and numbers up to 20 characters. Once you have successfully entered your ID and password, your information is registered with us whether or not your application is complete. Please keep this information in a safe place as you may use the same log-in information to apply for multiple positions.

4. Enter your personal data.

After you have created your user ID and password, you will be prompted to enter your personal data. Please provide the best phone number and email address that we can use to contact you concerning the status of your application.

5. List your degrees.

You will then be asked for information about your educational background. There are spaces to list up to three degrees and an extra space to enter other relevant education, credentials, and certifications. Even if this information is in your resume or curriculum vitae, it is helpful to repeat it here because it is presented to search committees in multiple formats.

6. Enter your work history and attach required documents.

The next screen will ask you to enter your current and past two positions. Enter your information and attach a letter of interest, a resume/curriculum vitae, and a list of references. Please ensure all three documents are in either MS Word or Adobe Acrobat format and that your file names have either the .doc or the .pdf extension. Please note that you will need to attach these documents each time you apply for a new position.

7. Enter demographic information.

After you have attached the required documents, the next screen will ask for your demographic information. Any information provided is used by the Office of Human Resources for affirmative action tracking purposes and is not released to the search committee with your application materials. Disclosure of your gender, ethnic group, or eligibility for veteran's preference is entirely voluntary.

8. Submit your application.

When you are finished, click the "Submit" button.

9. Read the Pre-Employment Declaration.

After clicking the "Submit" button at the end of the application process, a pre-employment declaration screen will follow. Read the employment declaration information and enter family and conviction information if applicable.

10. Sign your application.

Type your digital signature and click the "Accept" button. You will then receive an applicant identification number that will help us track your application.
