Application Procedure

Those interested in postdoctoral research training at the CNRC should review the various research opportunities described under CNRC Areas of Research and Faculty and choose an area (or areas) of primary interest. Please submit the Application Form and all required attachments to:

Morey W. Haymond, M.D.

1100 Bates St.

Selection is based on applicant qualifications, appropriateness of the proposed research project to the CNRC faculty and objectives, and funding sources. CNRC investigators will work with accepted postdoctoral fellows to arrange a mutually agreeable research project.


  1. If you will be funded by individual grant support, contact that investigator directly. If a mutual arrangement is found, the postdoctoral fellow can be accepted into the postdoctoral training program with the commitment of both the PI and the fellow that they will fully participate in the postdoctoral education program.
    No application deadline exists when a postdoctoral fellow is to be supported on non-CNRC funds, such as an individual faculty member’s research grant.
  2. Funding by the CNRC: Application deadlines are April 1 and Oct. 1, for research fellowships beginning in July and January. Applications from qualified minority candidates are particularly encouraged. Applications from non-citizens or non-residents of the United States also are encouraged, however stipend support for these individuals is quite limited. Non-citizens or non-residents of the United States who are interested in the program are advised to also apply for local or international sources of stipend support.
