This is your opportunity to participate in the interview process. In case you are unable to attend the vision talks, each will be video-recorded and made available after all candidates have a chance to present (after May 31). Details are provided below.

Candidate materials will be accessible via the recruitment webpage. Please do not share candidate names, CVs or video recordings outside of the UC Santa Cruz community.
