New Non-Tenure HR Track for UNC Core Directors

For the SOM to have the strongest research infrastructure for the 21st century and beyond, it must attract and retain the best directors to manage its core facilities and cutting edge technologies.

This document provides the procedures and criteria that guide the appointment and promotion of non-tenure track directors of core facilities. The differences between non-tenure track Core Director positions and other non-tenure track positions mainly lies in the length of contracts available and the focus on the collaborative, managerial (of both technologies and people), and financial aspects of the core director position versus the research and teaching aspects of other non-tenure track positions. These differences are designed to provide more stable core facility services for UNC researchers, a more stable position for the directors of UNC core facilities, and a tighter focus on the important aspects of the position when it comes to appointment and promotion of Core Directors.
