Post-Doctoral Associate Job Description


RSP 100 Form

RSP no longer uses this form for new applications. Intake and endorsement processes are done in InfoEd.

Budget Template form

Budget development for grants, contracts and agreements (hereafter "sponsored projects") uses estimates of future expenses based on current and policy. Budgeted salary and wage increases are projections only, and do not guarantee an increase, even when awards are made. All salary, wage and fringe benefit levels are determined by university policies and are subject to change throughout the life of the sponsored project. UToledo employees funded wholly or partially from sponsored projects will follow established university policy in determining wage and benefit rates.

Budget Template (Excel)

RSP no longer uses this budget form for new applications.  The budget must be entered into the proposal endorsment record in InfoEd, with exceptions only allowed with grant coordinator permission. This Budget Template is an MS Excel spreadsheet with built-in functions and formulas to expedite accurate budget development. This form applies to all UToledo campuses. Effective: 10/9/2023

No Cost Extension

Principal Investigator(s) contemplating changes are strongly encouraged to contact their Grant Management Specialist (GMS), or equivalent personnel, as each funding agency may have different requirements and timelines for how these requests must be made.  NSF and NIH both allow a one-time automatic grantee approved No-Cost Extension (NCE) upon request. If an additional extension is needed, the sponsor needs to provide written approval and may require additional details to approve the request. 


Note: having unobligated funds at the end of a grant is not a sufficient justification for a no-cost extension per guidance from NIH and NSF. All programmatic reports must be up to date at the time of the NCE request.

PI’s responsibilities on sponsored projects can be found in policy# 3364-70-22.


NCE requests must be signed by an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) from UToledo before the proposed change can be submitted to the funding agency. Submit the form to begin your request.
