Postdoctoral Appointments

UNH uses three types of postdoctoral appointments:

  • Postdoctoral Research or Teaching Associate
  • NIH Postdoctoral Trainee
  • Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral appointees are pre-professionals who hold the Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree and come to the University for a limited period under the guidance of a University of New Hampshire faculty mentor to further their professional development by engaging in independent or original research or teaching, or an advanced training program.

Paid Time Off:
  • UTime Leave Benefits - Personal Time, Sick Time, Family Care, Bereavement, etc.
  • Kronos Workforce Dimensions - Effective July 1, 2020, all Post Docs track accruals and usage of their paid time off through Kronos.
    • Exception:  If you work in COLA, COLSA or CEPS - until 10/17/20.   These colleges also migrate to Kronos on October 17th.  Until then you will use the Exempt Leave Record - FY21 to track your accruals and usage.  This form is also located in the Time & Leave section of the Forms page.
