AR 2:5 Appointment, Reappointment, and Promotion in the Research Title Series [PDF]
The University has continuously expanding requirements for scientists, specially-trained investigators, and other highly-qualified personnel to meet responsibilities in research and other creative activities, especially those responsibilities related to projects which the institution operates under contracts, grants, or other designated funds. To fulfill these requirements more effectively and to be more competitive in attracting and retaining needed professional personnel, a research title series for appointments and promotions without tenure has been established.
