Postdoctoral scholars in the Department of Pharmacology play an integral role in the research programs of our primary faculty members. Individuals seeking postdoctoral training in our department can also avail themselves of opportunities to contribute as educators in the classroom and play a role in service as members of departmental or institutional committees. Our goal is to work with faculty mentors to make postdoctoral training a highly individualized experience that optimally prepares postdoctoral scholars for the next phase in their career progression, whether that be in academic research, teaching, industry, regulatory affairs, or other settings. Supplemental resources to support the professional development of postdoctoral scholars at the University of Minnesota are offered through the Office of Biomedical Graduate Research Education & Training (BGREAT). The UMN Postdoctoral Association also offers numerous events and career development opportunities throughout the year for postdoctoral scholars.
