Salary Levels for Postdoctoral Research Fellows
In 2009, the school formally adopted the NIH/NRSA stipend guidelines http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-12-033.html as the minimum salary for HSPH postdoctoral research fellows. These guidelines are based on years of postdoctoral experience. In order to offer competitive salaries, departments and PIs are encouraged to pay postdocs and other researchers as generously as they are able, beyond the NIH guidelines. Salaries for postdoctoral fellows must be adjusted annually to continue to meet the NIH guideline levels.
