Current and former postdoctoral fellows

Current and former postdoctoral fellows

Every year, the Beckman Institute offers several postdoctoral fellows programs to support young scientists at the Beckman Institute: the Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows Program, the Beckman-Brown Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellows Program, and the Carle Foundation Hospital-Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows Program. Not all fellowships are offered each year.

Arun Maji is this year's Beckman-Brown Postdoctoral Fellow. He is shown with Beckman Founding Director Ted Brown at the institute.

Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows are selected for terms of up to three years.
