Postdoc & Early Career

The Michigan Pioneer Fellows program recruits postdoctoral researchers of extraordinary promise and provides them with financial and mentoring support to prepare for independent, research-intensive careers. This fellowship is at the University of Michigan, a research powerhouse with over $1.7 billion in annual research expenditures and 19 top-ranked schools and colleges.

The next cohort will receive an annual stipend corresponding to 120% of the NIH pay scale for postdoctoral fellows with subsidized health and dental for the fellow and their dependents.

Starting dates for the fellowship are negotiable.

This year, Michigan Life Sciences Fellows and Michigan Pioneer Postdoctoral Program combined to form the Michigan Pioneer Fellows. These two programs merged to provide maximum professional growth, mentorship, and collaborative opportunities to participants. Combined, these two programs offer postdoctoral fellows unique opportunities to interact and grow with a cohort of peers, while receiving both the independence to pursue their scientific projects and the necessary support to develop as scientific leaders.
