Post-doctoral & Visiting Scientists

Prospective post-doctoral researchers or visiting scientists are encouraged to contact researchers at the HTIRC with your interests. Funding from external grants is sometimes available to support post-doctoral fellowships. We also welcome visiting international scientists [with a demonstrated record of excellence in research] that may wish to conduct a research sabbatical or short-stay in our laboratory – usually these scholars are expected to attain the majority of funding from their home institutions.
