Request for Extension of Employment of a Postdoctoral Research Associate
In accordance with the Policy on Professional Research Staff, postdoctoral appointments are limited to a maximum, inclusive
of all postdoctoral service at the University, of three one-year terms. With appropriate approvals, an extension may be
granted. Documentation must be provided to justify that the nature of employment continues to be training-related and that
an extension is beneficial to the postdoctoral research associate, the faculty mentor (principal investigator/supervisor), and
the University. If the extension is approved, the maximum duration of the extension is two additional one-year terms. In
unique circumstances (e.g., illness, family leave, discipline-specific factors contributing to career development, etc.), extensions
may be granted beyond five years. Prior to submission of this form, it is expected that the faculty mentor and the
postdoctoral research associate will have met to discuss training- and career-related goals. The faculty mentor and the
postdoctoral research associate also are encouraged to complete an individual development plan (IDP), though it is not
required as part of an extension request. A sample IDP may be found at www.virginia.edu/vpr/postdoc/career.html. Upon
completion of this form, it should be submitted by the appropriate dean/vice president (or designee) to postdoctoral
programs, in the Office of the Vice President for Research, by messenger mail to P.O. Box 400882, by fax to 434-243-2140, or by
e-mail to postdoc@virginia.edu. Requests should be submitted, no later than, two months prior to the expiration of the
current appointment. Decisions may be expected within 10 working days from the initial date of receipt.
