The Rochester Postdoc Partnership advances the research and academic careers of Deaf and hard of hearing (Deaf/HH) scientists. Our program aims to develop a diverse group of highly trained biomedical scientists to address the nation’s biomedical workforce needs. Offering up to three years of postdoctoral experience, we rigorously train and support the career advancement of our scholars, preparing them for independent academic careers that support the biomedical research enterprise.
Our program provides ample teaching opportunities and rich biomedical research training that provides trainees with the skills they need to manage their own labs. Learn more from our program faculty and alumni.
