Default NOC classification for post-doctoral fellow?

Hello!

I was wondering what the appropriate NOC classification would be for a
post-doctoral position in physics at the university of michigan.

From my reading, it seems as if 4122 would be appropriate. However,
the NOC website lists a mere bachelor's degree as the qualifications
for this job. Also, the duties described are fairly basic. ON the
other hand 2111 which is "physicist", and requires a Ph.D. has a job
description more inline with what I actually do. However, my position
title, post-doctoral research fellow, is exactly matched under the
4122 classification.

Any thots would be appreciated. Also, does it make a big difference
which NOC category you list.

Thanks
Kay

try to search in 41XX (4 being for educational institutions, 1 meaning
skilled)

here is the complete list and you can search for something that fits
you even better.

i went over it it seems that 4122 is the most fitting. but do go over
it for yourself.

yes 4122 is correct for that. noc is kept generic so that couple of
codes
can map to a vast list of jobs in the real world. if they start making
different codes of small differences in the job description then the
noc list will be too large to manage.

however according to the rules cic officials will not be taking into
the education qualification for the work experience part.

so what noc says as required education qualifications doesnt matter
anymore.

4122 is correct for you.

It is not your job title but your functional responsabilities that
determiine your NOC . Thus if your work is as a Phyicist by duties and
responsibilities then you should classify your self as a Physicist.

The NOC is classified by duties, according to what a post-doc is doing, it
must be scientific researches, so for sure you can say you are a physicist.
