Officers of Instruction, Officers of Research and Postdoctoral Officers whose appointments end on June 30th are considered to be “on cycle”. These individuals are renewed annually via the Roster Process.
Postdoctoral officers of research may be appointed for full- or part-time service for a term of up to 12 months, for up to a total period of service in any postdoctoral rank of three years. Further extensions of an appointment in this rank may be granted only to complete a research project and require the prior permission of the Provost. These extensions are granted on an annual basis up to a maximum of five years.
