The typical appointee was recently awarded a PhD. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D.) in an appropriate field; the appointment involves substantially full-time research or scholarship; and the appointment is viewed as preparatory for a full-time academic and/or research career; and the appointment is not part of a clinical training program; and the appointee works under the supervision of a faculty mentor; and the appointee has the freedom, and is expected, to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of the appointment with the assistance of the faculty mentor.
At Augusta University the Senior Postdoc title was created to allow hiring units greater flexibility in staffing and the ability to differentiate between new graduates and experienced researchers. In essence the Senior Postdoc is a postdoctoral graduate researcher with more experience than a recent graduate. Therefore, the minimum qualifications for this position are a PhD. in an appropriate science field and 3 or more years of post-degree experience.
