HERB 2(20): How to Recruit Internationally and Live Happily Ever After

In this issue on international faculty we explore the challenges and best practices which come with a worldwide search for the best scholars.

Though most discussions focus on the recruitment of internal faculty, the desire to build strong long-lasting research teams has brought the issue of retention into the limelight, and this brings a new set of challenges, both in terms of how to create effective and meaningful collaborations and how to solve administrative issues arising from differences in legal systems and research support practices in different countries and institutions.
