Research Postdoc

The Biomedical and Health Informatics program offers a modest number of postdoctoral training fellowships, funded by the National Library of Medicine. These fellowships typically begin in the fall of each year, and are usually of two-year duration. Note that eligibility for these fellowships is limited to US citizens and permanent residents.

These fellowships are available to individuals from a variety of backgrounds who are interested in working with our faculty on their ongoing research projects. Funded NLM postdocs who are not also seeking a BHI degree have a set of coursework requirements, which include taking four of our eight core departmental courses. Please see details at the bottom of this page.

Prospective applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship should contact the program office in advance of the deadline to indicate their interest.

FAQ: Postdoctoral Fellowship Applicants

 

1. Is there a defined curriculum for the fellowship? What does a typical day for the fellows look like?
Postdoctoral fellows take four of our core BHI courses and lead and participate in our research colloquia during the two-year fellowship. As such, during an academic quarter, fellows usually take at least one course (two days a week) and a seminar (one day a week), and spend the remainder of the time working with a research mentor.

 

2. How do I apply for a degree-seeking postdoctoral fellowship?
Tuition coverage for degree-seeking fellowships is dependent upon funding availability each year.

 

3. Are there any prerequisites to apply for the program?
We strongly recommend that fellowship applicants have formal college-level coursework in mathematics, computer programming (two courses), and biology. See Q12 under the Graduate Program FAQ.
