About postdoctoral training at VAI


VAI labs conduct world-class biomedical research in cancer epigenetics, neurodegeneration, metabolism, cell biology and structural biology — all supported by outstanding Core Technologies and Services. Postdocs are a crucial part of VAI, so they receive highly competitive salaries, which start at $70,000 per year. VAI also offers postdocs comprehensive benefits, including low-cost health insurance for self and family, paid parental leave, and much more.




We offer numerous fully funded postdoctoral positions across our areas of focus. Learn more about postdoctoral training opportunities at VAI here. In addition, we have two internal fellowship programs: a National Cancer Institute T32-funded Cancer Epigenetics Training (CET) program, and the Inspire Fellowship program for postdocs who identify as underrepresented minorities. Please note that attending Postdoc Preview does not guarantee you a fellowship or a postdoc position at VAI; we encourage you to also apply to one or more of our open postdoc positions and fellowship opportunities (see FAQ tab below for more information).
