Postdoctoral Training

Highly-talented and dedicated postdoctoral investigators are attracted to our Department’s rich mentoring culture and broad range of research areas, techniques and strategies. The first-class mentorship received by our trainees, combined with our excellent postdoctoral training programs, contribute to the consistently high success rate of NIH K award applications submitted from our Department.

Our Department is home to eight federally sponsored research training programs for postdoctoral investigators. Information about these programs can be found on our training programs webpage.

A robust support system exists for postdoctoral investigators who apply for mentored-research career development awards. Information about our support initiatives for our trainees can be found on our Career Development webpage.
