One of the primary responsibilities of the laboratories at the Center for Infectious Disease Research is to train the next generation of researchers. It is our goal to cultivate postdoctoral scientists and infectious disease fellows in laboratories focused on the world's most devastating infectious diseases. The path to freeing the world of infectious disease will be long, and it will take generations of scientists to reach that goal. The free flow of ideas, the constant cross-pollination with neighboring labs and the open environment of the Center make it a great place to develop those minds.
Postdoctoral training at the Center lasts between two and five years working with leaders in the field of infectious disease research. At the end of this program, these trainees are the scientists of the future, ready to work in academia, research institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, government agencies and the medical profession.
