For Postdoctoral Scholars paid by stipend, specifically those on training grants or individual fellowships, the salary scale is set by the external funding agency. If the external funding agency's salary scale is lower than the  OHSU FY2017 minimum guidelines for years of experience, the principal investigator or department must supplement the postdoc's salary up to the minimum.
