Postdoctoral Compensation Increase
Yale will raise its postdoctoral compensation for new and continuing appointments. The university will provide a one-time, one-year subsidy in the 2023-2024 academic year for Yale-funded postdoctoral trainees funded by grants or external fellowships to help offset the unexpected cost for individual research budgets.
The university has made significant recent strides to enhance benefits offered to Yale’s postdoctoral community. At the same time, the competition for their skills has never been greater. It is critical for the university to assess and adjust postdoctoral compensation so that Yale continues to attract the best and brightest members to our community. As such, Yale will raise its postdoctoral compensation for new appointments and will introduce a two-step scale that will also result in a compensation increase for continuing appointments.
