Part-Time Adjunct Hire

Are you looking to hire part time adjunct staff* working less than 20 hours per week? You're in the right place!

*Please note:
  • Adjunct Staff working more than 20 hours/week are required to go through the posting approval process in PeopleAdmin.
  • If you are hiring someone for short-term work, i.e. for a weekend or a single event, those should generally be processed as a stipend, honorarium, additional pay or even paid as an independent contractor depending on the person's existing relationship with the university as well as the duration and nature of the work. HR can help you determine the right path forward - contact Recruiting and Onboarding.  

Please gather the information detailed below and select the Submit a Request button to complete the hiring form.

If the information provided on the part time adjunct staff hiring form is correct, new hires take about 10-15 business days (the extra time for processing new hires is dependent upon how quickly the new employee completes their hiring paperwork and the timing of the background check results). A new hire cannot start a position until the background check and form I-9 is completed.

Be prepared to attach approval documentation: Sponsored Programs (SPA)/ Research Administration (STAR) approval is required if grant funded, otherwise Unit Head/Dean Approval. Positions with split funding should have all associated approvals.
