Benefits for Postdoctoral Scholars

  • Base pay for postdoctoral scholars is set by the Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and is competitive by following the guidelines currently stipulated by the National Institutes of Health.
  • Postdoctoral scholars are afforded medical insurance provided by the University of Texas System. Plans with additional medical coverage for family members, dental insurance, and vision insurance are available.
  • Postdoctoral scholars holding an employee appointment participate in a retirement program, whereas those paid a stipend (such as some fellowship recipients) receive a supplement in pay.
  • Additional benefits available include on-site child care, and discounts on public transit passes. Some postdoctoral scholars may qualify for a no-cost membership at the Bryan Williams, M.D. Student Center.
