Human Resources

Human Resources provides support services to the faculty and staff of JHU. HR services include:

  • Administration of payroll and compensation
  • Recruitment/hiring
  • Benefits
  • Training and education
  • Career management
  • Organizational development
  • Employment issues
  • Performance management
  • Policy development/implementation/interpretation

The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering combined Human Resources staff provides information and consultation in all of these areas to the faculty and staff of both schools. Please contact us for support in the areas of salary/salary equity, benefits, hiring, performance evaluation, coaching/mentoring, training, career development, organizational development, and policy interpretation. In addition, the HR staff handles research appointments for postdoctoral fellows and research positions.

There is also an Office of the Vice President of Human Resources, and each division of the university has its own divisional office. Many of the individual schools of the university also have separate human resource managers to serve the HR needs of the individual school. You can find a listing of university human resources programs and offices on the JHU HR website.
