Compensation for Postdocs
Information about Postdoc Compensation Minimums and relevant salary policies can be found here.
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
Make sure you consider the different postdoc titles.
