Postdoctoral Fellows at the University of New Mexico

A postdoctoral fellow is a person engaged in a period of special study and/or research at the postdoctoral level. The postdoctoral fellow is a trainee, which is a unique category of employment at UNM, distinct from staff, faculty and students enrolled in a degree-granting program. Being a trainee, each postdoctoral fellow must have an identified faculty mentor (advisor). It is the responsibility of the institution, college, department and faculty mentor to supervise, encourage and foster the education of the postdoctoral fellow in a manner consistent with postdoctoral fellow's career goals. Postdoctoral fellows will be appointed through the Faculty Contracts Office.

Postdoctoral Biomedical Research

Biomedical research at the UNM Health Sciences Center draws upon the collaborative interdisciplinary efforts of faculty in the School of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and others to promote significant advances in the basic sciences and to support translational research programs that are focused on improving healthcare. The UNM-HSC has made tremendous strides in expanding multidisciplinary research programs resulting in rapid growth of sponsored projects.
