Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

The goal of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Postdoctoral Research Program is to help doctoral graduates acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct independent research and become a successful academic scientists / physician-scientists. Postdoctoral fellows will ultimately be able to independently generate a hypothesis and then design and conduct experiments to test the hypothesis under the mentorship of our faculty.


A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is typically a three year commitment, but can take more or less time depending on your specific experience and education. For more information on how the program is structured, how to choose a lab and mentor, and other expectations of the program, please review our Basic Science Research Fellows’ Handbook.
