Save section as a PDF

Research faculty (research professor and research scientist tracks), librarians, curators, archivists, and clinical faculty are not tenured. In some instances, however, research professors and research scientists may be eligible for bridge funding should sponsored funding lapse. See handbook section 5.M “Cessation of Funding for Appointments Supported by Grants and Contracts.” Librarians, archivists, and curators, who are included in the LEO-GLAM collective bargaining unit, serve a one- year probationary period. Research professors and research scientists may also hold instructional appointments, and if so, the portion of the appointment held in the instructional units may be tenured.
