Post-Doctoral Training

Highly-talented and dedicated post-doctoral 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 post-doctoral training programs, contribute to the consistently high success rate of NIH K award applications submitted from our Department.

Our Department is home to seven federally-sponsored research training programs for post-doctoral investigators. Information about these programs can be found on our Training Programs webpage.

A robust support system exists for post-doctoral 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.
