Associate Track

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 have obtained a high degree of skill in research or teaching and play an important supportive role in the conduct and reporting of research findings. The Associate faculty generally does not pursue a career as an independent investigator nor is expected to obtain independent funding. The Associate faculty member must have, at a minimum, a Master's Degree or may possess a doctoral degree. Individuals who serve the College of Medicine primarily in the areas of research or teaching may be considered for appointment in the Associate track.

Recommendation to the Associate Track is made to the ranks of:

  • Senior Associate in...
  • Principal Associate in...
  • Associate in...

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.
