Research Appointments

Information for Administrators

The different types of research appointments, and the processes and policies specific to each, are outlined in the FAS Appointment and Promotion Handbook.  SEAS-specific information for these appointments, to be considered in conjunction with those in the Handbook, are outlined on the research appointment category pages.

A high proportion (approximately 70%) of SEAS academic hires and appointments are foreign nationals, and require that we work with the Harvard International Office (HIO) to secure the proper visa.  To ensure a smooth transition to the SEAS appointment, it is important to begin the visa process as soon as possible.  Contact the relevant Academic Appointments Manager for more details.
