Postdoctoral Training Program

Postdoctoral researchers drive discovery in fundamental and use-inspired research in each of the 6 departments in the College of Science at Northeastern University.

The COS Postdoctoral Research Program is personalized for each postdoctoral researcher’s needs and aspirations. Postdocs receive supportive mentoring and guidance in building scientific skills, setting and achieving goals, and project development. In addition to rich research experiences with our faculty members, our postdocs have comprehensive professional development support for a variety of career paths.

Postdocs interested in teaching are supported by the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research (CATLR) at Northeastern, which assists with developing skills in scientific teaching, and developing mentored teaching experiences. For those interesting in exploring a career in industry, the Northeastern LEADERS program provides a series of coursework and internship opportunities with trade, government, and non-profit partners.

Our Postdoctoral researchers are supported with competitive salaries and full benefits including vacation and wellness days, health, dental and retirement.
