At Brown, Postdoctoral Research Associates receive a salary, while Postdoctoral Fellows receive a stipend. The minimum pay standard is similar for both.
Brown generally requires that postdoctoral compensation meets the NIH minimum pay scale, regardless of the source of funds. Occasional exceptions may be made in consultation with the relevant dean or in cases where the majority or entirety of a Postdoctoral Fellow's compensation is paid directly to them by an outside funding source. Departments and PIs are welcome to pay postdocs above the NIH pay scale in consultation with their dean's office.
