Assistant Professors are eligible for multi-year 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 base salary range for this position will be: Assistant Professors MD $10,586 - $15,880 per month ($127,041 - $190,561 annually), Assistant Professors Non-MD $10,000 - $13,333 per month ($120,000 - $160,000 annually), commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination.

These positions are officially designated as “without tenure by reason of funding (WOT)”, as are most appointments in the UW School of Medicine (and all CGIDR faculty).  Faculty appointed WOT do not hold tenure because all or part of their annual University-administered salary is derived from sources other than regularly appropriated state funds.
