Competition for named professorships

For the past several years, the Provost’s Office has conducted campus-wide competitions for vacant Vilas, Hilldale and “at large” Bascom professorships.

These professorships become available when an incumbent retires, leaves the university, or is appointed to another similar professorship. At this time no vacancies are anticipated beginning July 1, 2007, therefore this is to inform you that the Provost will not be seeking professorship nominations this year.If you have a colleague you wish to nominate for an award, you may want to consider any available department or college-wide professorships, or opportunities available through the Graduate School, such as the WARF Named Professorships, Kellett Mid-Career Awards, and Romnes Faculty Fellowships.
