Our Postdoctoral Scholars have completed PhDs and hold temporary academic appointments at CU, where they work closely with one or several INSTAAR researchers on a specific topic. Mentoring Postdoctoral Scholars on research innovation and professional development is a key INSTAAR mission. Current postdocs with questions or concerns should contact Courtney Collins (Postdoc Representative). Prospective postdocs should contact individual INSTAAR Faculty to explore potential collaborations.
