Students and postdocs taking part in our two-day Future Leaders Programme

Our Postdoctoral Fellowships allow early career scientists to focus on developing their research with the support and collaboration of some of the top researchers in New Zealand.

Postdoctoral Fellowships are in place across our partner institutes and our Fellows are encouraged and financially supported to take advantage of the many opportunities we provide to broaden their experience and skills. Activities on offer include:

  • 3-6 month industry internships
  • Annual multi-day workshops on specialist topics such as communication, commercialisation and leadership
  • Intensive annual multi-day bootcamps (held in remote and beautiful locations) where experts share their knowledge in an important current research area
  • Public engagement events, working with school teachers or children
  • Membership of the MacDiarmid Emerging Scientists Association (MESA), run by students and postdocs, which organises additional activities.

When specific Postdoctoral posts are available, the information will be posted here.
