Suggested Guidelines for Appointment or Promotion to Senior Rank
The Associate Track is a non-tenure track reserved for members of the Einstein faculty who generally do not possess a doctoral degree or its equivalent. Individuals who serve the College of Medicine primarily in the areas of teaching or research may be considered for appointment in the Associate track. The Associate faculty member plays an important supportive role in the genesis, conduct and reporting of research findings.
One can be appointed as an Associate (comparable to an Instructor) or Principal Associate (comparable to an Assistant Professor) on this track at the discretion of the chair. Appointment or promotion to Senior Associate (comparable to Associate Professor) requires recommendation by the chair and is subject to review and approval by the Committee on Appointments and Promotions.
