The University’s 2016 winter closure holidays and time off schedule has been announced.  There will a University-wide winter closure period starting Wednesday, December 21, 2016, through Tuesday, January 3, 2016.

Please note the following guidelines regarding postdoctoral scholars:

Postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to talk directly with their PIs and department administration about the operating schedules for the research activities within their areas. As in previous years, areas with critical responsibilities and many laboratories and research activities continue to operate during all or part of the closure period (i.e., clinical units, lab animal facilities, some research labs, Lane Library, etc.).

In accordance with this holiday and closure schedule, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) will be closed at noon on Tuesday, December 20, 2016, through 8:00 am on Wednesday, January 4, 2017. If you have questions about the winter closure schedule, please contact the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs via HelpSU (select "Request Category: Central Office Issues" and "Request Type: Postdoctoral Affairs), or your Human Resources administrator.
