Appointment Requirements

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to institute procedures for verifying that a job applicant is authorized to be employed in the United States. A postdoc is required to produce the necessary documentation that he or she is either a US citizen or authorized to be employed in the United States as a condition of the appointment via completion of the government-issued Employment Eligibility Verification Form (Form I-9) no later than the first day of work.

Postdoctoral appointments are generally made on a yearly basis. However, the end date of your postdoc’s appointment may be affected by visa issues and/or the terms of a sponsored project.

Please refer to Faculty Handbook for further information.

 

These two checklists have been prepared to help facilitate the appointment of postdocs:

a. New Postdoc Arrival Checklist for Postdocs
