Postdoctoral Appointments

UNH uses three types of postdoctoral appointments:

  • Postdoctoral Research or Teaching Associate
  • NIH Postdoctoral Trainee
  • Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral appointees are pre-professionals who hold the Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree and come to the University for a limited period under the guidance of a University of New Hampshire faculty mentor to further their professional development by engaging in independent or original research or teaching, or an advanced training program.
