Researchers working in lab

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral fellows enrich the robust research enterprise at the University of Michigan Medical School. We place a high value on your deep expertise and the contributions you will make while you train with us.

The Office of Postdoctoral Studies is housed in the Medical School and connects you with the abundant resources at your disposal to become a successful, independent research professional.

From exploring various academic and industry options to enhancing your marketability with valuable skills in communication, ethics, and teaching, we offer a wide array of career and professional development opportunities while you are here.

We work closely with the U-M Postdoctoral Association to serve as a voice for all postdoctoral fellows on campus as well as in university and nation-wide policy discussions. Together, we create a dynamic and supportive postdoctoral environment where our research fellows can thrive.
