Research Titles and Staffing

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


Processes related to research personnel that will be initiated, routed and completed in Workday include: create position, hire, change job, add additional job, request one-time payment, and request compensation change. Most of these requests require approval from department heads and deans before the Vice President for Research approves them. Please send documentation of department- and college-level approvals via email to Select the Sample Memorandums link below to find resources you may use for obtaining approvals.

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.
