Postdocs and researchers are responsible for allocating their time appropriately. Vacation time is meant to be used to support work/life balance, and as such, you are expected to use it throughout the year and will not be compensated for unused time at the end of your appointment, unless you track your time throughout your appointment according to University policy. Note, because of funding restrictions, not all postdocs will be eligible for payment of vacation time at the conclusion of their appointment. Specific policies relating to your individual appointment will be stated in your offer letter.
