Terms of Appointment/ 1.6 Notice of Termination

If a postdoctoral appointment is terminated by the faculty mentor prior to the end of the appointment, the appointee must be notified in writing at least three months in advance.  The exception is for appointees who are terminated because of poor performance.  In such instances, the Office for Postdoctoral Affairs should be consulted.  If the departing postdoctoral appointee holds non-immigrant status (J-1, H-1B, TN etc.) and resigns prior to the end of the appointment, the department must notify the Office of International Students and Scholars.
