Postdoctoral Research

CSHL has long been recognized as a place for nurturing young scientists, with postdoctoral researchers being an integral part of the discovery process. The Laboratory's postdoctoral fellows work in the labs of Principal Investigators, who conduct research withing five areas—cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, quantitative biology and bioinformatics and genetics—in a very synergized and interactive way.

The collaborative environment at the Laboratory is further enhanced by its Meetings & Courses program, which annually brings over 11,000 scientists from all over the world to the campus. The ability to meet with visiting scientists offers a unique opportunity for our postdocs to broaden their scientific knowledge and to network. Additionally, as part of our weekly seminar series, our postdocs are invited to meet informally with speakers over lunch.
