The MDI Biological Laboratory has a long and distinguished history of graduate and postgraduate education. Ph.D. students pursue their thesis research in faculty laboratories as part of the University of Maine Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE).
Graduate students from all over the world also work collaboratively with resident and visiting faculty mentors. Visiting graduate students may apply for support through the David W. Towle Summer Fellowship program.
Postdoctoral scientists are an integral part of the MDI Biological Laboratory research and education community. Postdocs work in all the laboratories of our resident faculty. In addition, our Richard J. Goss Fellowships in Regenerative Biology program supports independent and innovative summer postdoctoral research projects.
In addition to laboratory research, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the MDI Biological Laboratory can explore many science-oriented careers through development workshops and one-on-one interactions with visitors from industry, education, government, journalism, and the legal profession.
