I am applying to a faculty position. The application announcement says they require a cover letter, CV, research statement, and teaching statement, but does not mention letters of recommendation. Should I request that my references send letters anyways? Would the search committee ask for them later in the application process?

    Welcome to AcademiaSE. You should specify the country. Many European countries, for instance, do not have the concept of Letters of Reference. – damian Oct 26 '16 at 21:51
  • Sometimes, LORs are only required for shortlisted applicants. – The Guy Oct 26 '16 at 23:38
