I'm not positive what others are receiving, but I started with a large amount of PTO when all accounted for, between sick, personal, holiday, vacation, etc.
This varies from advisor to advisor to advisor, but mine lets me take considerable time off, provided I am reachable.
You start with a bank of 170 hours of vacation. You get 4.5 days of personal holidays + federal holidays (9) + 22 vacation days.
Was offered nearly a whole month off, plus holidays as a postdoc.
It depends on your advisor or boss. It varies highly from one professor to another.
The amount of vacation and personal time is generous and available at the start. No build-up over several years!
The worst thing about this is that it is lab to lab and department specific. There isn't a university wide policy on this.
For full-time year-long academic staff, there is over 20 days of time off in addition to some paid holidays and flexible time off. Some departments are very small, so it can be difficult to take a bunch of time off in a row.
Great vacation benefits. I always had much more time off than friends working in the private sector
Lots of time off offered.
