Grant Tenure

A Grant Tenure Track/Grant Tenured appointment refers to an academic appointment without term where funds to support 50% or more of the salary for the appointment come from an external source. 

Procedures for Appointment

Grant tenure track positions proceed exactly as tenure track positions do--they only difference is that the funding is from an external source. Normally these will be non-advertised searches, as the candidate will normally come to us with their external money, looking for a professional "home". However, these candidates should be put through a normal tenure track hiring procedure (even though non-advertised) as they will be evaluated by their peers in the same was as tenure-track people. The point being that, even if you are bringing your own salary, you still go through the same hoops (salary review, contract renewal, tenure and promotion consideration) as other tenure-track appointments. The major difference is that, if the funding runs out, the position can be eliminated.
