Faculty Associate & Senior Faculty Associate

Reference: Faculty Handbook, Ch4

The title of faculty associate or senior faculty associate may be conferred on a few individuals who have high professional attainments and who would be expected to make a substantial contribution to the Institute's research program. All appointments with this title will be without additional stipend from the Institute, will be for a definite term not to exceed three years, and carry no implication of tenure. These appointments will not be extended beyond a total of five years without review by the faculty of the Division concerned. All appointments of faculty associates will be recommended and approved by the procedures used for research professors. Faculty associates may hold research grants only with the approval of the Division Chair and Vice Provost, and if the grant proposals are cosponsored by a member of the professorial faculty. JPL senior faculty associates may use resources from such grants to offset their normal JPL salary only.
