Please prepare a resume and cover letter.  Your cover letter should address why you are interested in the position as well as how your experiences and education relate to the requirements described for our “ideal” candidate.   You may offer references at this time, however, we will not contact your references unless you are offered an interview.  We will maintain your status as “confidential” until after first round interviews.  If you are invited to a second round interview, a larger number of our stakeholders will be involved and confidentiality will be difficult to maintain.   Those being interviewed will need to plan for their own travel expense.
