Leaving the Lorentz Institute

From the date your appointment ends at the Lorentz Institute there is a six-month period in which your credentials can still be used to access the workstations, your email, and the Xmaris cluster if you were granted access. This is done to facilitate any data transfers and backups that you might still want to do before leaving the Institute.

Upon termination of this `grace' period, you account will be `archived'. This means that you will be no longer able to access the Institute IT services and that any e-mail forwarding rules you set in your .procmailrc or using the account services will cease to exist. Should it be needed, please contact your Lorentz Institute supervisor to arrange for an extension of your account. Your supervisor, in turns, will have to contact the helpdesk and request the extension.

In preparation for your leave, it could be a good idea to inform your contacts of this change perhaps by setting an autoreply to your IL incoming emails. You can do so via webmail.

Your data will NOT be deleted upon termination of your appointment by the IL.

Research data

We do not erase or modify the data you produced during your stay at the Lorentz Institute. In fact, we advise you backup, in accordance with your supervisor, any data you have produced for your research. Although we offer storage space on both the workstations network and the xmaris cluster network, you are encouraged to maintain your personal backup of research data. The following disks can be used as storage upon leaving the Institute

Returning acquired hardware

Upon leaving the Institute, you are required to return to our offices (HL40[5-9]) any hardware acquired during your stay and which belongs to the University of Leiden. This hardware is usually marked with a University of Leiden sticker. For more info please read Hardware acquired using SAP organized funding.
