Graduate students and postdocs should normally be entitled to vacation leave equivalent to university holidays and an additional total of fifteen (15) working days in the year. Funded students and postdocs with fellowships and research grant stipends taking additional vacation leave may have their funding reduced accordingly.
In this section, faculty and staff will find the information required to work with postdoctoral fellows and research trainees. Departments should be aware of the different classifications of postdoctoral researchers as well as the eligibility requirements for each designation and the division of responsibilities between researcher, supervisor and unit.
