Guidance for Postdocs
Brown remains open, but research activities are being shifted off campus as much as possible. Only essential personnel should report to work in person. All community members who can telecommute, including graduate students and postdocs, are expected to do so. Postdocs who are not required to be on campus for critical work should plan to remain off campus.
Supervisors have been asked to work with each of their student and postdoctoral trainees to develop a telecommuting plan that allows each of them to conduct research remotely to the fullest extent possible. For postdocs who have been identified by their mentor as “essential personnel,” these individuals should only stay in the work area for the minimal time necessary to carry out the critical work outlined in the lab’s minimum maintenance plan. All non-critical, on-campus research is now restricted to essential activities.
