This will be a 0.8 to 1.0 FTE non-tenure track position as an Associate Professor in the Clinician Educator track.

Associate Professors WOT (without tenure due to funding) hold indefinite appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off. The anticipated start date is April 1, 2023, or as soon as possible.

The full-time base salary range for this position will be: $5,753 - $13,000 per month ($69,036 - $156,000 annually) to be pro-rated based on FTE and commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination. This range is inclusive of base salary provided through the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan, in addition to base salary provided by the University. Please note that only compensation provided by the University is included in University benefit determinations and calculations. Compensation provided by the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan may provide eligibility for separate benefits offered by that organization.
