Grievance Process for Postdoctoral Scholars

Postdoctoral appointees should be made aware of the options that are available to resolve problems that might arise between the appointee and the mentor during the period of their appointment. Although the types of remediation available to employee and stipend-funded postdocs differ in some respects, the first course of action should be to attempt to resolve the conflict locally via discussions with: 1. mentor, 2. department chair, and 3. the divisional dean. If these efforts fail, the next step would be to contact the Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
