Across various Centers, Institutes, Programs and Departments, the Medical School provides excellent opportunities to continue recent PhD students' postdoctoral training. Research in the Medical School ranges from investigating the innermost workings of cells to analyzing health data at a population level. Faculty researchers, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars thrive in an multi- and cross-disciplinary research environment where teamwork is valued, encouraged, and rewarded and diversity is embraced.
In partnership with many biomedical and health science specialists across the University, we are excited to have our postdoctoral scholars receive mentorship from our faculty as they collectively work together to untangle today’s biggest medical challenges and understand the underlying mechanisms governing the life sciences.
