Research Titles and Staffing

The Division of Research administers research position titling and compensation procedures. 


With the implementation of Workday December 17, 2017, many processes related to research personnel will be initiated, routed and completed in Workday. The Research Personnel Action (RPA) Form is no longer needed. Processes initiated in Workday that will automatically route through the Division of Research include create position, hire, change job, add additional job, request one-time payment, and request compensation change.

Departments are able to post faculty-equivalent research positions through the Workday site or by directly working with the Division of Research to post a position on the Texas Workforce Commission’s website. See procedures below.
