Prospective Scholars


Thank you for your interest in pursuing postdoctoral studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. UNMC offers an environment that is intellectually challenging and conducive to research that will prepare you for an independent career. UNMC is an urban campus that is home to a global community of leading scholars and scientists. UNMC is home to the nation’s largest biocontainment unit and treated the first American Ebola and COVID-19 patients. UNMC is in the top 100 biomedical institutions receiving US Patents for the fourth consecutive year and received nearly $175 million in external research funding in 2020. The university recently announced a $2.6 billion dollar expansion called Project NExT which will "improve the readiness of the nation’s civilian and military health system to partner to respond to a catastrophic disaster such as another pandemic, accident, or overt attack." The Project NExT campus will be served by Omaha's newly announced street car line that will connect it with the Blackstone District and Downtown. Since 2017, our postdocs have written over 500 first-author publications and have secured independent careers in hospitals and universities, industries, and government agencies around the world. With top-tier facilities, faculty mentors, competitive salaries, and professional development opportunities. With all this in mind, UNMC is an excellent choice for your postdoctoral education.
