Please use the Postdoc appointment form to submit your request for approval. This form will route to the appropriate individuals for review. You will receive automated emails throughout the process as well as a final approval once all
review has been completed. Once you have the final approval you will send the draft offer letter to the candidate as the official offer.
The funding source determines your Postdoc’s classification. If the Postdoc is funded on an NIH T32 grant, their status
will be Postdoc Trainee. Postdoc’s funded under any other source will be appointed with the Postdoc Fellow
A postdoc position is a temporary and mentored training-focused appointment. Postdoc positions vary in length. After a Postdoc has been here for four years, the mentor will need to provide the IDP and an outline of the Postdoc’s progress
and projected career track timelines.
Business Operations will send you an email notifying you that your candidate has been approved. Once you send the
offer letter and receive a formal acceptance, you will move forward with the appointment in Workday, using the quick
reference guide provided by Business operations.
If a postdoc moves between classifications, this requires a new approval. Please fill out the postdoc approval form with
as many details as possible. Please note that the benefits will follow the classification.
