Staff Scientist Track

Suggested Guidelines for Appointment or Promotion to Senior Rank

The Staff Scientist Track is a non-tenure track reserved for members of the Einstein Faculty who have obtained a high degree of skill in research and play an important supportive role in the conduct and reporting of research. Staff Scientists generally do not pursue careers as independent investigators and are not expected to obtain independent funding.

Recommendation to the Staff Scientist Track is made to the senior rank of:

  • Senior Staff Scientist

One can be appointed as a Staff Scientist (comparable to an Instructor) or Principal Staff Scientist (comparable to an Assistant Professor) on this track at the discretion of the chair. Appointment or promotion to Senior Staff Scientist (comparable to Associate Professor) requires recommendation by the chair and is subject to review and approval by the Committee on Appointments and Promotions.
