What is a non-tenure track position?

These types of full-time faculty positions are called by a variety of names at different universities so you might see them advertised as non-tenure track, fixed term, limited term or contract positions and they carry the academic rank of lecturer, instructor or, occasionally, visiting assistant professor. Often these positions are advertised with specific responsibilities included, for example, coordination of a multisection course such as introductory psychology.
