Endodontist Assistant Professors are untenured faculty who are on the tenure track. The probationary period or tenure clock normally lasts five or six years for Assistant Professors recently graduated from doctorate programs, though recently hired professors with teaching or professional experience may have years in other positions credited as part of their probationary period. During probation, most Assistant Professors undergo a third-year or pre-tenure review, during which the university evaluates whether they have demonstrated adequate progress toward tenure to be awarded a second three-year pre-tenure contract or their contract will not be renewed.
