with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series.

e. An appointee in the Project (e.g., Scientist ) series does not usually serve as a principal Investigator. See campus
policies for Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator status. For titles that do not automatically qualify as Principal

required or expected for an appointment, merit increase, or promotion. The designation as Principal Investigator does not
in itself justify an appointment to the Professional Research series.
