Thank you for choosing UNMC for your postdoctoral studies. Please take advantage of one of the two orientation sessions, which will familiarize you with various aspects of activities and requirements related to your training, in addition to orientation given to you by Human Resources. According to Diane Klotz, the former director of NIEHS Office of Fellows Career Development, “The single most important thing for postdocs is to have a plan that highlights what their ultimate goal is and delineates steps for achieving this goal.” To facilitate this important activity, UNMC requires that you have an annual evaluation with your mentor using this user-friendly form, which should not take more than 15 minutes to complete. This and the fulfillment of Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR) requirements are essential for your reappointment. Please visit the Postdoc Handbook, which contains important information on salary, benefits, leave of absence, grievance resolution, etc.
