Policy update

As of September 2016, University Policy 00-2, Position Definitions and Terms of Appointment For Titles Held by Graduate Students and Postgraduate Trainees, Section 4.0, Postgraduate Trainees, is being revised to change the number of years that a postdoctoral trainee's appointment can be extended without approval for an exception. The maximum number of years is now six, rather than three. The minimum annual FTE salary is $36,000.   

The relevant section of UP 00-2 is as follows:

4.1.6, The postdoctoral researcher position is a temporary position with a maximum term of three years. Appointments are normally made for a period of one year. Extensions beyond six years require prior written approval of the dean of the Graduate School or their designee.
