## Postdoctoral Associates

The VIGRE postdoctoral program is supported by the **NSF VIGRE program**, the **College of Science** and the **Center for Computation and Technology**.

Each postdoctoral position is a two or three year appointment with teaching duties of two courses per academic year. Postdoctoral associates are expected to actively participate in VIGRE activities, in particular the VIR courses and other vertically integrated research experiences. Each postdoctoral associate has a research and teaching mentor.
