Postdoctoral Researchers Annual Performance Review


Starting in 2023, postdoctoral researchers will be included in the College's Annual Performance Management Cycle for employees in the Fall of 2023 in Success Factors. 

Important dates: 

  • Oct. 16, 2023 - Postdoc self-evaluation launch – Oct. 16
  • Nov. 1, 2023 - Postdoc self-evaluation due date – Nov. 1
  • Dec. 15, 2023 - Manager ratings, discussion, and overall due date

The Postdoc Self-Evaluation Planning Worksheet lists the postdoc performance competencies. For mentors, helpful tools from Human Resources, including the Manager Guide and Rater Bias Guidelines, are located on the Staff Performance Management pages.

The Annual Performance Review focuses on the evaluation of the work performance aspect of the postdoctoral researcher’s role. It is also expected that each postdoc develops an Individual Development Plan specific to their career goals to guide their research training and career development, with annual (or more frequent) discussions with their primary mentor and others for feedback and support.
