Postdoctoral Scholars must complete their Ph.D. prior to their appointment start date. The appointment length can be from one to three years and may not exceed a total of 60 months of postdoctoral experience. Because this is an academic title, it requires Dean's Office approval prior to hire. If you would like to hire a postdoctoral scholar, please fill out and submit the below postdoctoral request form to gsadmin [ a t ] uw.edu at least two months prior to the appointment start date. If a visa is needed, the processing time may be longer, depending on the visa type.
If you would like to grant early computer and email access to a senior fellow, please send an email to gsadmin [ a t ] uw.edu to let them know that you would like this and we can set this up through our payroll system. This is the preferred method for granting early access, as opposed to sponsoring an account through UW IT.
