The “other” ways to classify postdocs varied widely, including “employees-in-training,” “scholars,” “visiting postdoctoral scholars,” and “students in training.” One national lab used three categories of fellow, depending on funding source. Many titles were variations on the two commonest classifications —“fellow” and “research associate”—but a few seemed to indicate a desire for a more functional definition: “guest researcher,” “academic professional,” “trainees—irrespective of funding source,” and “someone receiving further training in the laboratory.”
