Evidence of attraction of research funding as principal investigator also play a role. The candidates must provide credible evidence of their ability to create and lead a research team at KU. Teaching experience at undergraduate/postgraduate levels should be commensurate with the years of experience.  The ranking of the PhD institution as well as the current employer standing are also factors that will be considered in the evaluation.
