Postdoctoral scholars are integral parts of MIT’s dynamic academic and research community. Our more than 500 postdocs pursue programs of research and training under the direction of an MIT faculty member.

We support our postdocs through programs that we hope will highlight the next steps to take on their career paths. Because MIT is a sustaining member of the National Postdoctoral Association, your MIT affiliation allows you to join the NPA for free.
