Project Scientist and Specialist Review Committee

The Project Scientist and Specialist Review Panel (PSSRP) is a standing committee that reviews appointments, accelerations, promotions, and non-standard cases for Project Scientists and Specialist. The Role of PSSRP is to serve in lieu of the Committee on Academic Personnel (CAP) as the final recommending body for these actions. 

Divisions should monitor file submission progress and regularly report file status to APS. Delays of longer than a few weeks beyond campus deadlines must be discussed with APS and may be subject to approval.

Appointment files should be submitted for review with ample time prior to the effective date to allow campus reviewers to evaluate the file thoroughly. Files submitted after the “deadline for files to be submitted to APS” listed below may be delayed to the next PSSRP meeting. Files submitted are expected to be committee-ready; files that are not committee-ready will be returned and assigned a meeting date following its subsequent submission.

Please be mindful of the terms and conditions of appointment for represented Project Scientists and Specialists per Article 2 of the Memorandum of Understanding between academic researchers and the UC.
