1. Nominating Letter - This letter should describe not only the merits of the applicant, but also - very importantly - the resources and support that the Department/Institute will provide to the applicant and how the applicant's area of expertise supports the Department/Institute's strategic plan. For Assistant Professors, the letter should include a statement about how the Department/Institute will provide crucial mentoring for the nominee. The letter should also describe the recruitment process - e.g., feedback from formal research seminars and chalk talks by the nominee.
2. NIH-style Biosketch - 5 pages maximum including all other support.
