UNMC provides a wide range of postdoctoral training opportunities in different areas of biomedical sciences including: cancer biology, nano and regenerative medicine, with an emphasis on translational research.


The Office of Postdoctoral Education aims to ensure that our Mentors have all the tools available to them to be successful in their mentoring of our Postdocs. On November 14, 2018, we held our first Mentor Workshop with presentations by Linda Cunningham (UNMC HR) and Dr. Iqbal Ahmad (Associate Dean, Office of Postdoctoral Education). We plan to continue offering this workshop to all Postdoc Mentors and interested Administrators.
