Postdoctoral trainees apply directly to the Core Faculty with whom they wish to work, and they are appointed through the sponsor’s department. If interested, please submit a cover letter and a curriculum vitae to the faculty of interest or to Lili Gonzalez, PhD . The application process includes an in-person visit and seminar presentation. Postdoctoral fellows are typically appointed for one year, which may be renewed for a second year. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. Postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to seek independent support (e.g., F32 NRSA) to extend their training beyond the two years.
