External referee solicitation letters - template update (11/1/11)
Academic Personnel Services provides templates for departments to use in preparing solicitation letters to external referees. these templates have been updated, and new templates have been included for three additional series (LSOE/LPSOE, Academic Administgrator, and Academic Coordinator).
These templates contain the preferred descriptions of appointment and review criteria for the various series; lists of points that external referees should cover in their letters; brief instructions for submitting these letters; and the required UCSD confidentiality statement. Using these templates will help ensure that procedural requirements are met and that referees' responses meet reviewers' needs, thereby preventing delays in the appointment and review processes.
The templates are available on the Forms and Examples
page on the APS Web site.
