Postdoc Policy


The BWH Postdoc Policy provides guidelines and minimum expectations for all BWH Postdoctoral Fellows and their PIs, including guaranteed paid time off, annual salary increases and career conferences, and responsibilities for mentoring. Please refer to with questions about specific policies.

The postdoc policy was last revised in May 2022. The revised document, including the Postdoc Annual Career Conference form and instructions, can be accessed here (pdf file).

For your convenience, we have also included here a Word version of the forms in the appendix, which includes the following items:

  • Annual Career Conference Form & Instructions
  • Reappointment and Salary Review Form
  • Appointment Extension Request Form (complete 4 months in advance of 5th-year service mark)
