Postdoctoral scholars are appointed for one year periods and must be re-appointed every year on their anniversary date if they continue in training. The department personnel representative or mentor will notify the OPE that a re-appointment letter should be generated through the OPE during the month prior to the yearly end date. The re-appointment letter will be signed by the Associate Dean of the Office of Postdoctoral Education, the mentor, and the postdoctoral scholar.
If the mentor does not intend to re-appoint the postdoc for another year, the mentor must notify the postdoc in writing three months prior to the re-appointment date. Following the first year of appointment and in subsequent years, if it is apparent that funding will no longer be available or for any other reason, a minimum of three months notice prior to termination must be given to the postdoc in writing by the mentor. The 3 month notice would start from a mutually agreed upon date.
