International & Postdoctoral Resources

The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) is committed to excellence in research, education, and training, and recognizes that postdoctoral associates make vital contributions to the institute’s success by generating new ideas and publishing research results.  We provide a number of resources and support services to attract the highest caliber scholars and to assist them in their professional development.

International students and scholars at TSRI have access to expert immigration advisors through the institute’s International Services Office, which provides comprehensive, professional, and individualized immigration and support services in a welcoming environment designed to actively promote international exchange and further the research and training goals of TSRI.

The Career and Postdoctoral Services Office provides services and programs to empower PhD trainees to successfully prepare for and transition to a variety of professional endeavors by building upon their scientific research training.  The office supplements the training graduate students and postdoctoral scholars receive in the laboratory by promoting a culture of informed, proactive, and strategic career planning.  To achieve this goal, the office provides personalized one-on-one career counseling, connections to opportunities, and targeted programs that are guided by best practices and measurable training outcomes.  The office partners with alumni, faculty, campus groups, and experts in developing and implementing services that foster trainee success. 

The institute’s postdoctoral associations, the Society of Fellows and Scripps Florida Society of Research Fellows, are nonprofit, all volunteer organizations designed to encourage both professional and social exchange.  The two groups sponsor visiting lectures, informal networking events, social activities, and annual research symposia.  Similarly, the Network for Women in Science hosts meetings and other events with the goal of providing support and guidance for female scientists at TSRI on both campuses. 

TSRI also has a number of postdoctoral training programs, funded through the National Institutes of Health, specifically for the purpose of providing training opportunities for postdoctoral associates interested in particular fields of research.
