HR Processes

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research is responsible for the oversight, review and approval of all "research faculty hiring" on the Boulder Campus. We hope that the following information will facilitate ease in working with already-established, as well as upcoming, campus policies and procedures. Boulder Campus Research Associate Faculty Series (referred to as “Research Faculty”) include the following titles:

  • Professional Research Assistants (PRAs)
  • Sr. Professional Research Assistants (Sr. PRAs)
  • Research Associates
  • Sr. Research Associates

They are employed by tenure-track faculty who serve as PI’s (Principal Investigators) for their research grants.

The Boulder Campus Research Faculty and the Research Professor Series (Research Assistant Professors, Research Associate Professors and Research Professors),  proposed by Bruce R. Ekstrand, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in June 1985, was approved by the Boulder Faculty Assembly (BFA), the Boulder Campus Administration, the University of Colorado President and the Board of Regents, and implemented in June 1986.
