SciVal Perspectives - Aligning Research Strengths For Informed Recruitment
While recruiting individuals to fill department head positions has always been considered a serious undertaking, universities today are finding that interdisciplinary research and global networking have created a larger, more diversified pool from which to choose.
By analyzing the research competencies of the Women’s Health faculty from a public, American university, the institution has a clearer picture of the specific research areas in which they are currently global leaders as well as fast-growing research areas where they have potential to hold a leadership position. In addition, we identified several institutions with whom they have established partnerships and several universities with whom they may want to consider a relationship as this group of institutions could be very attractive when looking for potential candidates. This analysis will hopefully provide guidelines to university leaders preparing for recruitment and eventually help them to make better informed hiring decisions.
