Empowering Scholarship

At the Keck School of Medicine, postdoctoral scholars are a vital part of our research community. We have developed a collaborative and inclusive research environment where postdoctoral scholars receive the support and inspiration to successfully move on to the next phase of their careers.

The Keck School of Medicine’s Office for Postdoctoral Affairs is a hub of support and information for our postdoctoral scholars. The office aims to supplement laboratory training by providing career development guidance and additional research skills instruction, thereby upholding the institution’s reputation for recruiting and training the most exceptional biomedical researchers and future scientific leaders.

Understanding that each postdoctoral scholar’s path is unique, our office works with each scholar to determine a path forward and to keep them on course as they continue through this important journey.
