Specific advice on preparing applications for the different levels of the promotion round can be found on the following pages:
You should carefully plan your application, taking the time to ensure you are providing enough information for a fair assessment to be made. You are required to create statements containing a narrative and evidence to support your claims and then upload each section of your application to the online system: https://acapromo.massey.ac.nz.
The online system will consolidate your application, and you will be able to view a draft before submitting.
If you have had a significant period of absence due to paternal leave, illness, or any other reason during the period being considered, ensure that you briefly outline this under the absences section of the online application system. The committees will take this into consideration when assessing your application.
The brief overview must not exceed two pages in total (please do not adjust the fonts and margins which are preset in the template). It should contain a succinct summary of the context in which you work, provide a compelling overview of your case for promotion, and highlight your contributions across your nominated fields. It is important to note that the Committee will be reading all of your application in detail, so your brief overview is an opportunity to highlight to the Committee your case in a concise form.
Applicants are encouraged to provide all relevant information so a fair assessment can be made of their application. In this section you can attach additional relevant information, including any appendices. This section must also include an applicant’s Job Description or link to Job Description. Please ensure you include only what is necessary, and are careful to not duplicate any information you have in your CV or in other areas of your application.
Your CV should be accurate and up to date. Think about the relevance of the information you are providing, and who your audience will be, ensuring that someone from outside your discipline can understand the format and information you have provided. Ensure the reader understands the order of authors in your publications as this can vary between disciplines (whether it is alphabetical or in order of contribution). Your CV should help to demonstrate a sustained level of performance and should contain a list of your qualifications.
