The NIH has issued the new salary scale related to experience level stipends for postdoctoral scholars for 2016.  The new scale provides for increases that are approximately 2 percent per experience level over the current scale. UC will adopt the new scale effective Feb. 1, 2016, per Article 4 – Compensation of the collective bargaining agreement in effect between UC and the UAW.  Please note that any postdoctoral scholar who is appointed or reappointed on or after Feb. 1, 2016, should be paid in accordance with the new salary scale. 

For Kirschtein Fellowships, the minimum applies to all awards made on or after Oct. 1, 2015.  

Accordingly, the Academic Salary Scale, Table 23, Postdoctoral Scholar is revised effective Feb. 1, 2016.  A copy of the issuance letter and the revised scale are available online.
