5.4.B Terms & Other Conditions of Appointment

Adjunct appointments may be for a single quarter or for a period of time up to three years and are renewable. Appointments may be full time or part time effort. The determination of the length of the appointment and the percentage of effort should be based on programmatic need and budgetary considerations. Individuals holding these titles may be compensated or they may choose to volunteer their services.

Appointees may, but are not required to, have primary professional involvement in business, industry, or government during their Stanford appointment. These positions should not be used for individuals who are involved directly in: the execution and design of research, assisting in goals of a sponsored research project, preparation of proposals or reports or authoring research results.  Research activity at this level of involvement requires a separate research appointment.
