ECOR Elections

Each year two MGH faculty are elected to ECOR to represent faculty concerns and issues. Elected representatives serve a 3-year term.  To ensure a balance of continuity and renewal, terms are staggered so that two seats are up for election every year.

For 2016, the open faculty positions are Assistant Professor and Associate Professor.

Who can nominate

  • You may nominate yourself or another person.
  • All nominees this year must hold the faculty rank of either Assistant Professor or Associate Professor and be primarily engaged in research at MGH.
  • All MGH faculty with an academic rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor, and who are primarily researchers, are eligible to nominate and vote.

How to Nominate

Review Process
The information you provide will be used by the Nominating Committee to review the nominees.
