Please note that attorneys representing individuals are not authorized to file H-1B petitions on behalf of the University.

Jobs are added and removed every day, throughout the day. Job listings remain on Harvard Careers until the position is filled or the requisition is closed. If you can view a job listing, the hiring department is still accepting applicants. When searching for jobs, sort by the Date Updated field to find the most recently posted positions.

What are basic qualifications and what role do they play in the hiring process at Harvard?

Basic qualifications are the minimum qualifications that a candidate must possess in order to be initially considered for the position. When applying to a position at Harvard, be sure to clearly describe, through your cover letter and resume, how you meet the basic qualifications for the specific position. Applicants who do not demonstrate that they meet the basic qualifications for a position cannot be considered for that role.

We encourage all applicants to carefully review each position and job description prior to submitting an application. 

How long does it take to process my resume?

When you apply online, your resume and cover letter are instantly available to Human Resources. On average, the hiring process – from resume review to interviews and reference checks to final offer – takes around four to eight weeks.
