Research Career Ladders for Research Associates & Professional Research Assistants
  • On January 1, 2021, the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act went into effect, which requires that people performing the same work get the same pay. It’s about time! To support the implementation of this new law, and to provide transparency and clarity around research faculty positions in ICS, a broad group of people have worked on creating ICS' new Research Career Ladders.
  • The ladders describe career progressions for Professional Research Assistants and Research Associates.
