Roxanne-

At Bates- Maternity leave is a short term medical disability leave.  The
specifics are outlined under

http://abacus.bates.edu/acad/pubs/FacHB/benefits.html#6.

Yes it is paid. We have no specific policy for maternity leave.
I was paid by the NIH on my postdoc grant and by my faculty advisor as a grad
student for my two leaves.

Six weeks is a very reasonable request- the NIH only pays for four on the NRSA
awards...


Congratulations!

Paula
