UNC hiring search firms to help fill several top academic jobs

The search for the next vice chancellor for research is under way, joining several similar searches throughout the University.
The search committee charged with filling the position — now filled by Barbara Entwisle — met Monday to revise the position’s leadership statement, set dates for future interviews and consult with the firm conducting the search.
Entwisle has served in the role on an interim basis since Aug. 1, taking over for Tony Waldrop, who left the University to become provost at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
No candidates have been announced. The committee approved an advertisement Friday to be placed on career search sites and the University website.
“I’d like to send applicants to a University search site so they have access to more information than they would from just the position site,” said Jean Dowdall, senior vice president of Witt/Kieffer, the executive search firm consulted for the process.
Dowdall was present at the meeting via conference call.
