Postdoctoral Programs

Each faculty laboratory is made up of some combination of postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and technical staff. Attracting highly qualified postdoctoral collaborators is an important goal for each of the laboratories.

Three kinds of support are available for postdoctoral fellows:

  1. NIH Postdoctoral Training
    The training grant "Transport Processes in Biological Systems" is within the department of Physiology. more info...
  2. Faculty Research Grant
    Applicants should address their request directly to the individual faculty members of the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology.
  3. Individual Postdoctoral Fellowships
    These include NIH National Research Service Awards, NSF postdoctoral fellowships, and fellowships from a number of private or public foundations (e.g. the American Heart Association).The stipend for postdoctoral fellows who have just received their Ph.D. degree or M.D. degree is in accordance with the NIH postdoctoral stipend scale, and is increased with the number of years of relevant experience. In addition, the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology provides coverage for health insurance.
