The Assistant Project Scientist title is given only to those who make significant and creative contributions to a research or creative project. Appointees may be ongoing members of a research team, or may contribute high-level skills to a specific project for a limited time. Demonstrated capacity for fully independent research or research leadership as required in the Researcher series are not required in this series. However, a broad range of knowledge and competency and a higher level of independence than appointees in the Specialist series are expected. Assistant Project Scientists may participate in University and/or public service depending upon funding source and duties of the position.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service.
