Minimum Stipend Policy

Upon initial appointment, all Postdoctoral Associates should be offered a stipend of at least the current NIH NRSA scale based on their year of experience as a postdoc. The NIH NRSA scale listed below represents the minimum stipend scale. There is no set maximum allowable compensation, so Postdoctoral Associates may be offered stipends in excess of the minimum.

Effective January 2015, the NIH NRSA Stipend scale is as follows:

Years of Experience Stipend for FY 2015

0 $42,840
1 $44,556
2 $46,344
3 $48,192
4 $50,112
5 $52,116
6 $54,216
7 or More $56,376

Upon reappointment, all Postdoctoral Associates should be offered a stipend of at least the current NIH NRSA scale based on their year of experience as a postdoc. There is no set maximum allowable compensation, so Postdoctoral Associates may be offered stipends in excess of the minimum. Any exceptions to these guidelines must be requested by the Principle Investigator in writing and submitted to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
