LBNL Postdoc

Postdocs need to contact their department's CSS HR partners on UCB campus.

LBL DOES NOT PROCESS POSTDOC FORMS.

You are considered a Postdoc only if you meet all three of these criteria:

  1. You are not paid by UCB.
  2. You have a formal, recognized postdoc position either at LBNL or another institution but you are located at LBNL.
  3. You are "sponsored" by a UCB Faculty Member, meaning that the UCB Faculty Member works with you in your postdoc role - that is, you could be called a "UCB Faculty Sponsored Postdoc".
