Reappointing Research Scientists

(revised 8/4/2012)

The materials needed to reappoint research scientists are:

  • letter from the department chair or center director requesting the reappointment and briefly describing the incumbent’s current research and responsibilities in the context of the criteria for appointment
  • a current copy of the research scientist’s cv (peer-reviewed publications should be listed separately from other publications; publications not yet accepted should not be listed; the candidate’s role in grants should be clearly stated; information about grants should include the dollar amount and length of the grant)
  • an activities statement that outlines the research scientist’s’ duties, responsibilities, and plans for future research
