Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications
After receiving a fellowship offer, postdoctoral applicants must complete an online application and submit the appropriate supporting materials. Each department's requirements are a little different, so postdoctoral applicants should contact their respective department for details. All postdocs are required to submit transcripts showing the completion and award of their doctoral degree.
Post-docs planning to study in the U.S. under a J-1 Scholar Sponsorship should be aware of new English proficiency requirements.
