The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will engage in full-time advanced research training under the supervision and direction of a faculty sponsor in the sponsor’s research program. Postdoctoral research fellows are supported by the College and, as appropriate, by the sponsor’s grants. The successful applicant must relocate to the sponsor’s location (Omaha) for active participation in the sponsor’s program of research and to take advantage of the many interdisciplinary scientific opportunities afforded by the University.
Program goals focus on accelerating the trainee’s entry into a research career and include: 1) beginning implementing of a program of research; 2) the acquisition of grantsmanship skills such as written and oral communication, preparation of grant applications, and administering funded grants; 3) interdisciplinary collaboration with scientists from other fields; and 4) training in scientific integrity.
If you would like to be considered for a postdoctoral position, please contact faculty members directly, or apply through formal announcement on the UNMC Employment Opportunities site.
