Postdoctoral Scholar Salary Scale

Pursuant to the Postdoctoral Scholars’ Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the University of California and the UAW union, Article 4, Compensation, the University salary scales for Postdoctoral Scholar salary/stipend minimum rates have been adjusted in accordance with the newly revised fiscal year 2018 National Institutes of Health Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award stipend levels.

These new minimums apply to Postdoctoral Scholars, who are newly hired, reappointed, or whose anniversary date falls on or after June 1, 2018. Current Postdoctoral Scholars with anniversary date before June 1, 2018, will continue to be subject to the December 1, 2016 minimum rates until their reappointment or anniversary date after June 1, 2018.

Please note that Postdoctoral Scholars who earn a salary/stipend amount that is below $455 per week ($23,600 per year) are classified as non-exempt.  Postdoctoral Scholars in non-exempt titles newly hired, reappointed, or with anniversary dates on or after May 20, 2018 should be subject to new salary scale. The new salary scales are attached and also available on the AP Website.
