B. Coverage

These provisions apply to all individuals holding postdoctoral research training appointments administered through the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience. These individuals will normally hold the title "Postdoctoral Fellow", "Postdoctoral Trainee", or “Postdoctoral Researcher”, and the conditions of their position must meet the definition of a postdoctoral appointment described below (see Section C). The exact source of stipend funding (e.g., NRSA award, faculty research grant or contract, foundation grant) does not matter, only whether the funds are administered through the department. This policy does not apply to a postdoctoral appointment whose primary purpose is clinical training.

This policy also applies to all Faculty Mentors of Postdoctoral Appointees covered by the policy, regardless of where they hold their primary faculty appointment.
