Research Appointments

Welcome to the Research Appointments website. 

This site has been created to assist University of Windsor faculty with the appointment of grant funded research personnel.

Beginning in January 2015, administration of grant funded research appointments transitioned from the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic to the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation. Since then, there have been some changes to the process for hiring research personnel using grant funding. Please read the information provided on this site carefully to ensure proper and timely processing of your request for a research appointment.

Below you will find links to the information and forms you will need to hire Post-Doctoral Fellows, Research Assistants and Associates, Visiting Scholars, and other similar research personnel using your grant account.
