3335-7-35 Term of appointment.

(A) Contracts will be for a period of at least one year and for no more than five years.

(B) Contracts must explicitly state the expectations for salary support and generally will require one hundred per cent salary recovery. It is expected that salary recovery/support will be derived from extramural funds.

(C) The initial contract is probationary, and a research faculty member will be informed by the end of each probationary year as to whether he or she will be reappointed for the following year. By the end of the penultimate year of the probationary contract, the research faculty member will be informed as to whether a new contract will be extended at the conclusion of the probationary contract period. In the event that a new contract is not extended, the final year of the probationary contract is the terminal year of employment. There is no presumption that a new contract will be extended. In addition, the terms of a contract may be renegotiated at the time of reappointment.

(D) During and until the end of the second and subsequent contract periods, research faculty appointments may be terminated for not meeting the terms of the contract (e.g. failure to obtain extramural support for the research). Appointments may also be terminated during a contract period for cause (see rule 3335-5-04 of the Administrative Code), or financial exigency (see rule 3335-5-02.1 of the Administrative Code), and the termination decision for either of these reasons shall result from procedures established by faculty rules. In addition, a contract may be renegotiated during a contract period only with the voluntary consent of the research faculty member. By the end of the penultimate year of each contract period, the research faculty member will be informed as to whether a new contract will be extended at the conclusion of the current contract period. If a new contract is not extended, the final year of the current contract is a terminal year of employment. There is no presumption that a new contract will be extended. In addition, the terms of a contract may be renegotiated at the time of reappointment.

(E) The standards of notice set forth in rule 3335-6-08 of the Administrative Code apply to research faculty appointments.
