Rehab Sciences Sector

Status-only appointment (at the rank of Lecturer)


Initial status only appointments are offered for a term of 1-3 years, from July 1st to June 30th. Activity reports are to be submitted to the Department Chair on an annual basis. To be considered for renewal of an active appointment, an activity report must be submitted.

Initial Status-only Academic Appointment

Candidates who currently do not hold an active status only academic appointment with one of the Rehabilitation Sciences Sector departments may submit an application for an initial status only academic appointment. A complete application consists of three (3) parts: an online application form, an up-to-date resume or curriculum vitae (CV)*, and 2 to 3 letters of reference. The reference letters will be collected by the Sector once an online application with resume or CV* is received. Instructions on how to submit these letters will be sent via email.

Criteria for an appointment can be found within the Sector Guidelines.

NEW! Annual Activity Report and Renewal of Status-only Academic Appointment

As of 2020, all faculty with an active Status-only Lecturer academic appointment held with one of the Rehabilitation Sciences Sector departments must complete an annual activity report. Appointments will be renewed every 1-3 years dependent on the end date on your letter of offer.

To request renewal of the Status-only Lecturer appointment, faculty are required to complete an online annual activity report. Submission of an activity report will be accepted as the appointment renewal application, unless additional information is required.

* Those holding an appointment that does not end on the upcoming June 30th will still be expected to complete an annual activity report to continue the appointment.

Please email with any questions about this new process.

Approval of Renewal Appointment:

Department Appointments Committee - Department Chair - Human Resources Review
