External/All Applicants - Includes positions that are open to all applicants, whether currently employed at UW-Madison or not.

Referral Priority Candidates Only - Open to individuals eligible for referral priority due to layoff of academic staff or university staff exempt or for long-term academic staff non-renewed for reasons other than performance.

Other Employment - Many of the Administrative and Academic Divisions have their own employment web pages, where they highlight employment opportunities available with their Division. Please be aware that many Schools and Colleges, as well as individual Academic Departments and Centers, have Career Development pages. These are intended for use by students and alumni of that specific Academic unit, rather than the general public; for this reason they have not been included on this list.
