Appointing a Postdoc

Resignation Policies

The University may impose corrective action or dismissal when the postdoctoral scholar's performance or conduct merits the action. Corrective action could be in the form of a verbal reprimand, written reprimand, suspension, or termination.

Notice of resignation: If a postdoctoral scholar resigns prior to the end of the appointment, he or she should provide a written two-week notice. Postdoctoral appointees must leave all research and instructional materials with the faculty supervisor to ensure continuation of the project or teaching assignment and compliance with relevant University and sponsor policies. However, at the discretion of the College/Department, access to these data and materials may be provided to the appointee.
