The University of Missouri (MU) Research Excellence Program (REP) enhances the university's research mission by providing funding to high performing faculty to hire postdoctoral scholars to further research productivity and advance postdoctoral scholar careers. The Research Excellence Program (REP) is coordinated by the Office of Postdoctoral Education housed within the Graduate School.

The REP program helps support the research mission by:

-Increasing research support, capacity, and productivity from existing high performing faculty.

-Providing specialized training and support to postdoctoral scholars to advance their careers and preparedness to apply for grants and early career awards.

-MU Faculty are competitively selected to be REP Faculty Scholars and participate in a call to hire REP Postdocs. The REP Faculty Scholar serves as the the REP Postdoc's research sponsor and mentor. REP Postdocs are provided with a competitive salary and professional development funds.

Professional development for REP postdocs includes grant writing training, personalized guidance in finding funding, and support in the process of submitting for NIH K99 and other early career awards. REP provides postdoctoral scholars with unique opportunities to prepare for a faculty career. The Office of Postdoctoral Education manages the hiring process for REP and helps coordinate ongoing professional development.

Many REP Faculty Scholars are accepting applications for REP Postdoctoral Fellow positions. Please check their profiles on our website.
