The sitting US President can nominate and appoint, with the "advice and consent" of the Senate, as many justices as necessary to fill vacancies that are open during his (or her) term(s) of office.

The US Supreme Court has one Chief Justice and eight Associate Justices; all receive lifetime commissions.
