Find faculty whose research interests match your own
The most important element for a successful postdoctoral experience is finding the right mentor – one whose research interests align with your own and one with a mentoring style that works for you.
First, you need to identify BCM researchers conducting research in your areas of interest. There are several paths we encourage you to explore to identify faculty whose research interests match your own and then to learn more about that investigator.
1. View the list of faculty with keywords who have indicated an interest in hiring a postdoc soon. This list is updated regularly.
2. See the training programs that support postdoctoral associates (e.g. T32)
3. Browse the faculty bios by research area in each of our interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs:
- Cancer & Cell Biology
- Chemical, Physical & Structural Biology
- Development, Disease Models and Therapeutics
- Genetics & Genomics
- Immunology & Microbiology
