WHAT DOES POSTDOCTORAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Postdoctoral research

Postdoctoral research is scholarly research conducted by a person who has completed doctoral studies. It is intended to further deepen expertise in a specialist subject, including integrating a team, acquiring novel skills and methods. Postdoctoral research is often considered essential while advancing the scholarly mission of the host institution; it is expected to produce relevant publications. In some countries, postdoctoral research may lead to further formal qualifications or certification, while in other countries it does not. A 1999 study found that the 43% of the first authors of research articles published in Science were by postdoctoral fellows. Postdoctoral research may be funded through an appointment with a salary or an appointment with a stipend or sponsorship award. Appointments for such a research position may be called Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Postdoctoral Research Associate, or Postdoctoral Research Assistant. Depending on the type of appointment, postdoctoral researchers may work independently or under the supervision of a principal investigator.
