Joint Appointments

The Joint Appointment Program at Idaho National Laboratory is designed to enhance research collaborations between INL and university staff.

Joint appointees develop or conduct research and development at both INL and their host institutions. Joint appointment agreem?ents are negotiated between INL contracts and the partner university.

The Joint Appointment Program:

  • strengthens INL’s strategic objectives;
  • increases and diversifies opportunities for universities to collaborate in research and development; and
  • provides opportunities to participate in specific proposals that might be unattainable without a lab and university partnership.

Two Types of Joint Appointments

  • Incoming: A university employee is requested to work on-site at INL. Professors work with INL researchers on collaborative projects.
  • Outgoing: An INL employee is requested to work at a university. Laboratory employees conduct research or teach at partner universities.
