Postdoctoral Policies

Postdoctoral appointments afford recent Ph.D. (and equivalent advanced degree) recipients a period in which to extend their education and professional training. The opportunity to carry out postdoctoral studies in a research environment such as provided at Weill Cornell Medicine can significantly broaden an individual’s expertise, provide a period of more independent scholarship, and help define future career paths.  The breadth of the academic community, together with the physical resources in the libraries and laboratories, make Weill Cornell Medicine a particularly rich environment for postdoctoral training. In addition to deriving individual benefits, postdoctoral appointees make important contributions to the research mission of Weill Cornell Medicine.
