Postdoctoral Research at Rockefeller

J. Kipchirchir Bitok

The university has a strong commitment to the full involvement of postdoctoral scholars in all aspects of the scientific, educational and cultural activities of the community. Each year 300 postdoctoral trainees are associated with the research of the 78 laboratories, where they are encouraged to continue their scientific training and pursue their research interests. In addition, postdoctoral trainees typically participate in the many seminars and symposia held at the university. In many instances, candidates for postdoctoral training at the university obtain funds from a private or governmental granting agency. However, the university awards approximately 15 to 20 postdoctoral fellowships annually to young scientists who are in the early stages of their training.
