Sample Offer Letter for Postdoctoral Positions 

The Student/Postdoc Advisory Committee (SPAC) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has drafted a letter to be used by PI’s as a template for postdoctoral position offers. The SPAC recommends that the letter includes:

    • the salary/stipend the fellow will receive
    • the source of the funding
    • time limits for initial funding and for the length of the postdoctoral position
    • whether or not a fellow is required to obtain outside funding to remain in the laboratory
    • any specific requirements and responsibilities of the fellow that must be fulfilled to ensure satisfactory progress
