Benefits for Postdoctoral Scholars
- Base pay for Postdoctoral Scholars is set by the Dean of the Graduate School 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.
