Postdoctoral Fellow Training


SINH offers a two- to three-year postdoctoral training program. The program aims to encourage academic excellence, expand fellows’ professional perspectives and help fellows better understand the global context of their research. As of the end of 2017, 33 postdoctoral researchers were in training at SINH.   

The postdoctoral research program at SIBS was consecutively named a National Excellent Postdoctoral Research Program in 2005, 2010 and 2015 by China’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security. (The selection is made every five years.) SINH’s postdoctoral research program is part of the SIBS program. 


To foster excellence in research, postdoctoral fellows are supervised by a senior faculty investigator and are integrated into ongoing research projects where they receive personalized training. In close collaboration with their mentors, postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to apply for national and local grants in order to pursue their own research projects. Fellows can also take advantage of SINH’s advanced seminars, courses and research facilities.
