Appointments and promotions for Mayo Clinic faculty

Current faculty in the Department of Molecular Medicine will adjudicate and decide on administrative appointments and promotions, granting of academic rank, and requests for joint appointments.

Mayo Clinic faculty members are simultaneously classified according to four different systems; each represents a separate aspect of service and has a different protocol for promotion:

  • Administrative appointment (associate consultant, senior associate consultant, consultant)

    These board-approved appointments are unique to Mayo Foundation, and determine salary. Promotion through the administrative ranks is initiated by the candidate and the chair of the candidate's home department. Criteria and expectations for administrative appointments are available on the Research Personnel Subcommittee web page on the Mayo Clinic intranet.

    Note: Research and Education Academic Information Management System (RE-AIMS) formats Mayo Clinic faculty CVs in a standard manner. Information on the RE-AIMS format can be found on the Mayo Clinic intranet.

  • Academic rank (instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, professor)

    Academic rank represents an endorsement and certification of experience and expertise within a discipline of science or medicine. Academic rank is based on criteria that do not imply participation in any particular department or program. Academic rank in the Department of Molecular Medicine does not reflect or imply participation or membership in the department but affirms credentials and experience in these fields of study. Faculty interested in obtaining academic rank in molecular medicine should contact the department for additional information on the guidelines.

  • Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences privileges

    The privilege of participating in graduate education (both formal teaching and supervision of graduate students) requires formal documentation of credentials and certification. Contact the department for more information.

  • Joint departmental appointment

    A request for joint appointment in the Department of Molecular Medicine reflects the desire of a faculty member to engage actively in the academic, administrative and educational life of the department. The merit of requests for joint appointment is determined by the department chair, vice chair and executive committee. Faculty members typically hold a single joint appointment outside of their home department.
