Postdoctoral Scholars

"Advancing Research. Creating Solutions. Becoming Leaders."


Postdoctoral scholars are vital members of our academic and research community.  UCI is a campus where postdoctoral scholars are supported in their career development, applauded for their research contributions and encouraged to become leaders in their fields.  Whether you are a current or prospective UCI postdoctoral scholar, please take the time to browse through this section of the website for information about resources available to you.
