Postdoctoral Personnel


Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has defined the time spent in postdoctoral positions as a training period for a career in biomedical science:

"A postdoctoral trainee is a person who has recently earned a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent doctoral degree, and who joins Case Western Reserve University to perform mentored research full-time under the supervision of a faculty member. The position can be held for up to five years and is meant to provide additional research and/or scholarly training in preparation for a position in academe, industry, or government."

Employment as a postdoctoral scholar is governed by the Policies and Procedures of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and the School of Graduate Studies. The University’s Human Resources Policies and Procedures Manual does not apply to Postdoctoral Scholars and Postdoctoral Fellows.
