Postdoctoral Scholar Annual NIH Salary Increase

Annually and for all new hires Human Resources will analyze and adjust the salary floors for 12-month postdoctoral scholars pursuant to the NIH schedule.  

Per the United Academics CBA, the minimum salary floor for Postdoctoral Scholars on 12-month appointments will be no less than the amounts set according to the NIH Postdoctoral minimum salary schedule and the floor will be adjusted each year pursuant to that NIH schedule annually effective July 1.

Please note that all time in a postdoctoral appointment is counted towards years of experience (this includes unpaid Postdoctoral Fellow appointments.)
