How do I apply for a postdoc position at Caltech?
  • The Division of Biology and Biological Engineering is a vibrant, interdisciplinary research community with postdoctoral scholars from around the world. If you are interested in joining this community as a postdoctoral scholar, please directly contact the faculty member with whom you wish to work.
I'm applying for a fellowship that requires Caltech signatures. Who signs these?
I received a fellowship. Do I need to do anything to process the funds?
  • Yes. Please let your faculty sponsor's grant manager and Stefany Nielsen in the BBE Postdoctoral Scholars Program know about your fellowship as soon as possible. They will need a copy of your official award letter, any specifications on your institutional allowance, and the budget.
Does the department provide travel funds?
  • Unfortunately, no. If you are interested in traveling to a conference, you will need to request funds from your faculty sponsor or another source.
What Academic seminars occur in the BBE division? How do I get on the mailing list for these seminars?
  • All students, postdocs, and staff can sign up for BBEmail.
