Postdoctoral Training

Our postdoctoral program supports the career development and research training of postdoctoral fellows.

At NYU School of Medicine, postdoctoral scholars are a vital part of our research community. Our postdoctoral program supports your career development and training in research, promotes collaboration with our renowned investigators, and encourages your contribution to important scientific research.

If you have completed a PhD, an MD, or an MD/PhD in the past five years, you are eligible to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship. A postdoctoral position at NYU School of Medicine can advance your work as a researcher and prepare you for a career in academia and beyond.

We aim to shorten the amount of time you spend in training, while giving you a comprehensive view of the current job market. Many of our postdoctoral fellows finish their appointments within two years.
