NCSA Postdoctoral Researcher Program

Postdoctoral researchers are an important component of the NCSA ecosystem, joining a lively community of professional staff, faculty and students. Postdoctoral researchers contribute to research, development and innovation across NCSA’s research and education thematic areas, laboratories and facilities, technical units, funded projects and programs, and industrial partnerships. Postdoctoral researchers are embedded in a unique environment at NCSA that supports interdisciplinary research, education and innovation around complex problem solving using advanced digital infrastructure including the NSF-funded Blue Waters project, Innovative Systems Lab, CyberGIS program, the National Data Service and the Advanced Visualization Lab. Within the context of carefully constructed individual development plans, postdoctoral researchers will gain new skills and gather new experiences as they develop towards careers in academia, industry, national labs or other leadership positions.

NCSA is part of the flagship University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign—a world leader in research, teaching, and public engagement—and is located in a micro-urban community that combines cultural vibrancy with affordability and quality of life.
