Research Associates are full-time or part-time term appointees who primarily conduct research with no formal teaching duties. Appointments of Research Associates are governed by Policy AP4 – Faculty Term Appointments (pdf) formerly Policy #42). This title is available only to those persons who hold the PhD degree or other equivalent qualifications or work experience in their field of research. Such appointments do not lead to a tenured appointment.
An appointment as an Honorary Research Associate appointment may be made in recognition of services rendered to a faculty, department, or school. No salary is provided.
Other classifications of research staff are available for those not meeting the eligibility requirements of a Research Associate. Please contact your Human Resources Advisor/Associate for more information.
