Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Postdoctoral Awards for Professional Development have been suspended until further notice. To find funding opportunities, please visit the Duke Office of Research Support Funding Opportunities page.
The Duke Office of Postdoctoral Services, with support from the Vice Provost for Research and the Vice Dean for Basic Science, provides Postdoctoral Awards for Professional Development. These awards are designed to support postdocs' professional development needs by providing reimbursement for activities that directly enhance the individual's professional growth. Such activities include, but are not limited to, conference travel, workshop attendance, and purchase of lab materials. Applicants with creative ideas for reaching their professional development goals are encouraged to apply. The awards are open to full-time postdocs in all disciplines.
