Postdocs and Academic Professionals

Postdocs at Cornell supplement the research expertise of faculty by sharing new techniques, collaborating with other institutions, and helping to manage the daily operations of labs and research sites. Cornell is home to more than 800 postdocs with about 300 at Cornell University's Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences and about 500 at Cornell University's Ithaca campus. Of those, 161 are female, 336 are male, 287 are Non-US Citizens, and 210 are US Citizens and Residents.
