What is the new minimum salary for postdocs?

As outlined in Section 5 of the Postdoctoral Regulation 10.10.08, all postdocs must be compensated at a rate that is at least 60% of the minimum starting salary for an assistant professor in the appropriate/corresponding discipline as published in the University’s approved faculty salary ranges established by Human Resources. As an example: if the minimum starting salary for an assistant professor in Entomology is, according to HR’s faculty salary ranges, $64,000, then the required minimum starting salary for a postdoc in Entomology is $38,400 (60% x $64,000).
 
Furthermore, the University recommends hiring all incoming postdocs hired at 1.0 FTE at the annual salary minimum of $47,476, as recommended by the Fair Labor Standards Act and supported by the National Science Found and National Institute of Health.
 
Departments should hire incoming postdocs at either the minimum annual salary of $47,476, or 60% of the faculty salary range, depending on which salary is higher.
