Your Help with Data Collection

1. Think you missed your chance to complete the Postdoc and Research Scientist Info Form? Nope!

Each year, Stony Brook is asked to do an accounting of all our postdocs and "non-faculty researchers" to NSF for their annual Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates. To help us with our data collection, we ask you to complete the Postdoc and Research Scientist Info Form, where you can, for example, let us know if you're not a postdoc.

We always need your up-to-date data, so you can still complete it!

The link to the form isHERE.

Thank you!
