Postdoctoral Scholar Hiring

Postdoctoral Research Scholar Recruiting

Postdoctoral research scholars, please contact Kristin Judd in the Business Office for information or questions.

Postdoctoral scholars are individuals who have recently completed a doctoral degree who are continuing with a full-time program of advanced academic preparation and research training under the guidance of a supervising faculty mentor. Postdoctoral appointments are by their nature temporary and may be funded through salaries, typically from a supervisor’s grant, training grant or fellowship stipends.

Postdoctoral scholar appointments may be renewed annually on a fiscal year basis for up to four years, so long as the postdoctoral scholar is within five years from receipt of the doctoral degree. Any further extensions must be approved by the Office of the University Provost. Appointments may be terminated prior to the end of the contract year based on unsatisfactory performance or when funding is no longer available. For more information on postdoctoral research scholar appointments, see the Guidelines for Postdoctoral Scholars and the Conditions of Postdoctoral Scholar Service.
