Postdoctoral Training

The Stowers Institute offers scientists who have completed their doctoral studies the opportunity to conduct advanced research in a culturally diverse and scientifically vibrant community. Our goal is to develop scientific leaders who will advance scientific understanding through rigorous scientific experimentation and go on to lead the next generation of scientific trailblazers.




Intense collaboration between our accomplished faculty members and postdoctoral researchers provides an unparalleled experience and opportunity to obtain the necessary skills novice scientists need to advance their careers.

Technology Access

Postdoctoral researchers train in state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with the latest technology. Generous resources, unmatched scientific support facilities staffed by leading experts and a tight-knit community of researchers enable postdocs to take advantage of outstanding interdisciplinary expertise to expand and accelerate their own research.

Professional Development

Critical career-related and professional development opportunities abound at the Institute. The Research Development Support department at Stowers offers workshops and events focused on competitive fellowship and grant writing and the submission process. Other workshops and seminars covering skills such as oral presentation and effective manuscript writing are offered through the Stowers Crossroads organization.


Interested candidates can email their curriculum vitae and bibliography, along with a cover letter outlining their background and career objectives, to the principal investigator whose area of research matches their academic interest.
