The Executive Recruitment Board

By transforming the mechanism of recruitment and change in the employment status of faculty members of universities and research centers, the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution approved a bylaw in 2007, through which it defined a new structure for the recruitment of faculty members. The aim of the Council, in addition to profiting from the abilities of educated, competent, pious and revolutionary graduates as well as recruiting young and committed workforce from home and abroad, was to create unity of procedure in the recruitment of faculty members and reduce bureaucracy.

In the new structure, three levels have been created for the recruitment of faculty members, each one on top of the other. At the top of this structure, the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution has set up a board called the Supreme Recruitment Board of faculty members of universities and research centers, which acts directly under the supervision of the Council and is located within its Secretariat. Below the Supreme Recruitment Board there are two more boards in the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology as well as the Ministry of Health and Medical Education called the Central Recruitment Board of faculty members, which are responsible for supervising and coordinating the recruitment of faculty members and changes in their employment status. Executive Recruitment Boards of faculty members are below the Central Recruitment Board. In all universities and research centers, these Boards are responsible for assessing the academic and general qualifications of faculty membership applicants and those faculty members who request a change in their employment status.
