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.
