Postdoctoral Training

The Department’s active research environment provides postdoctoral scholars with exceptional mentorship and resources to prepare them for the next step in their careers. Postdocs in our program have a successful record of securing grant funding and publishing in well-respected journals. They help train undergraduate and graduate students, share their research in our workshop series, and represent our program at institutional and national conferences.

Our Postdoc Committee provides trainees the opportunity to build leadership skills and connect with peers. In 2021, the committee launched our Postdoctoral Seminar series, which serves as a forum for career development talks and research presentations by postdocs across the nation.

Interested Individuals can find Postdoctoral Scholar opportunities at Postdoctoral Jobs@UIOWA and are encouraged to send inquiries directly to individual Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology faculty.
