Postdoctoral researchers represent an integral component of the scientific community. They bring a level of technical and intellectual support to the laboratory that is invaluable not only to their mentors, but to students and technical staff working with them as well.
The University of Kentucky Medical Center is committed to promoting and improving the postdoctoral research experience. The University of Kentucky College of Medicine Office of Postdoctoral Affairs was established in August 2002 to provide services to support and enhance the professional
experiences of postdoctoral scholars engaged in research training in the College of Medicine. It also provides information and resources to faculty and staff seeking to assist these scholars. Productive postdoctoral scholarship is critical to the development of successful scientists in academia and industry, and the college values this contribution to the research effort at UK. In addition, we value postdoctoral scholars' contribution to the cultural and intellectual diversity of our community.
