Short Description

Long Description

Use this when an individual is --

At Will

At Will

Appointed at will. 

All SAAO positions (and all postdocs) must be at-will.   Adjunct faculty, and federal personnel with academic rank, are the only faculty that are appointed at-will rather than with either a contract or permanent tenure.

Tenured

Tenured

Faculty who have been granted permanent tenure.

<9 Month-renew not anticipated

Less than 9 Month-renewal not anticipated

Appointed for a contract period of less than 9 months, and the hiring unit does NOT anticipate that the individual is likely to have a subsequent appointment immediately following the current appointment.  In other words, “One and Done.”

<9 Month-renewal possible

Less than 9 Month-renewal possible

Appointed for a current contract less than 9 months, but you anticipate that a subsequent appointment is likely - or at least reasonably possible - to follow immediately.  For example, an individual provided a 6-month contract based on current grant that is set to expire in 6 months, but it is anticipated that subsequent funds are likely to be forthcoming that would allow for subsequent appointment of the individual.

9 Mths-renewal not anticipated

9 months-renewal possible
