Paying Postdoctoral Fellows
The School supports the National Institutes of Health Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Health Resources Services Administration’s “National Research Service Award” (NRSA) minimum stipend levels for postdoctoral fellows. The table of stipend levels is found within the National Institutes of Health’s website available at: http://grants.nih.gov/training/nrsa.htm
All postdoctoral appointees must receive at least the recommended NRSA stipend for a postdoc with 0 years of experience. As of September 1, 2009, postdoctoral stipends have increased to $39,000 per year and will increase to $41,000 per year September 1, 2010. Annual cost of living increases of 3% annually are anticipated beginning September 1, 2011 and in subsequent years.
In order to remain competitive in today’s market, it is recommended that a postdoc‘s salary be brought to the recommended NRSA level commensurate with their years of experience.
It is the faculty mentor’s responsibility to pay appropriately for postdoctoral appointees who have obtained additional postdoctoral experience before coming to the School. This amount is to be determined prior to the postdoc’s initial appointment.
If a mentor wishes to pay more than the NIH minimums to postdoctoral appointees, internal equity in the lab should be considered when making these decisions.
The School will monitor that postdocs are being paid, at minimum, according to the NIH entry level based on their time here at the School.
