CSAIL Human Resources

Welcome to the CSAIL Human Resources wiki page. Here you will find information about your CSAIL Appointment. If you have questions that are not related to CSAIL appointments please see below for links to various Human Resources topics. Still can't find the answer? Contact us here.

Before Starting at CSAIL

Before starting work (paid or unpaid) in CSAIL or using any of the laboratory's facilities, everyone must officially check in with the CSAIL Human Resources Office and complete the necessary registration forms. This includes visitors. We try our best to make this a quick process.

In accordance with MIT Policy, all visitors, whether paid or unpaid, international or domestic, must be formally appointed when they come to MIT to research and collaborate for longer than two weeks. All visitors are here at our discretion, and anyone occupying MIT facilities and using MIT resources must have a formal connection to the Institute.

  • For domestic visitors, one to two month's notice gives us enough time to make the process go smoothly for the visitor when she or he arrives.
  • For international visitors, the MIT's International Scholars Office requests a minimum of four months notice before arrival.

There are benefits affiliated with a visitor appointment. If CSAIL HR is notified far enough in advance of their proposed visit, we will be able to process the appointment form in time for the visitor to be able to get an MIT ID card, even if they will only be here a short time. This ID card provides conveniences such as:
  • Library privileges
  • After-hour access to CSAIL and other MIT buildings
  • Ability to purchase a parking permit (space permitting) and/or gym membership.

Before Leaving CSAIL

All staff, visitors, and students must return all CSAIL keys, equipment, and identification cards. Students, visitors, and postdocs should check out within the week prior to leaving the laboratory. Paid postdocs and visitors should give Human Resources three weeks notice if they plan to leave before their scheduled end date. All staff and visitors who leave CSAIL will be asked to complete a formal exit form upon departure.

Per MIT's Policy Manual (section 6.4.1), at least two weeks notice of termination by Support and Service Staff members and four weeks notice of termination by Administrative and Sponsored Research Staff members should be given to the department.
