‚ÄčFinding a WU Postdoctoral Position


All postdoctoral positions at WU are appointed individually by WU faculty members and not through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA). There are several ways to search for a position at WU:

  • Search the Washington University jobs board to view currently advertised postdoctoral positions.
  • Search the DBBS Faculty database
    The DBBS Faculty Research Interests Database lists over 500 faculty members affiliated with the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences, which oversees the Biomedical PhD programs. You may search by keyword to find faculty interested in a specific research area, and then contact that faculty member directly. (There are over 1,000 faculty at the School of Medicine; this database only lists those affiliated with DBBS.)
  • Add Yourself to the Research Prospects Database
    Faculty can search the Research Prospects Database for postdoctoral candidates that fit their hiring needs. Fill out the online form and attach your CV/Resume to be added to the database.
  • Search by Department
    Some departments have their own position listings pages. You may search by department to see if there are positions available or to find faculty that are interested in a specific area of research.
