Important Notice: Additional Screening Requirements for Research and Research-Related Support Positions

As part of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of research integrity and security, we adhere to Louisiana Revised Statute 17:1826.3, which mandates additional screening for certain applicants.

This applies to everyone applying for employment in a research or research related support position, graduate assistantships, or visiting researchers that are funded by a grant, gift, or contract. The state is requiring the University to screen for:

1. Non-U.S. citizens who are not permanent residents.
2. U.S. citizens or permanent residents with any affiliation with an institution or program in a foreign country of concern.
3. Individuals with at least one year of prior employment or training in a foreign country of concern, excluding employment or training by a U.S. government agency.

Please note that these provisions apply only to institutions that receive state appropriations and have annual research budgets of ten million dollars or more.

As part of this process, foreign applicants must submit a copy of their current passport and the most recently submitted Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application, DS-160. All applicants must provide a complete resume and curriculum vitae, detailing their educational history, employment since turning 18, published material, current and pending research funding, and non-university professional activities.

The University has established a policy for the proper screening of all individuals subject to this Part for research-related support positions. This includes verifying all attendance, employment, publications, and contributions listed in the application.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. This process is essential to ensure the integrity of our research and the safety of our institution. Please note that all requirements must be completed before any offer of a position can be made.

Thank you for your interest in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. We look forward to reviewing your application.
