We write to reassure you that postdoctoral researchers will receive their scheduled Spring Quarter pay as planned. We understand that these unprecedented disruptions are challenging, and we want to assure you there will be no interruption to your pay.
We expect that our research activity can continue, even as most people on campus shift to remote work. You should be in touch with your Principal Investigator, faculty supervisor, or Lab Director about how you can advance projects remotely. You can also reach out to your unit’s postdoctoral administrator. We are posting updates, additional resources, and planning tools at researchcontinuity.uchicago.edu regularly.
Thank you for your commitment as we work together in these extraordinary times.
