Rice University Faculty Policy No. 203-97

 

FACULTY APPOINTMENTS - ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

APPLIES TO ALL RICE UNIVERSITY

Assistant Professors originally appointed for multiple year terms contingent on receiving their Ph.D., who do not receive the degree before November 1 of any academic year, will be appointed as Acting Assistant Professors for a one year term effective July 1. He or she may be considered for reappointment in the usual process as are other Instructors or as a new appointment to Assistant Professor.

The evidence for completion of all requirements of the degree should be a certification by the Dean of Graduate Studies or a similar general university official stating that all requirements have been fulfilled and that the award of the degree is automatic. Equally satisfactory, of course, is the actual award of the degree itself.
