Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (CZ Biohub) is an independent, nonprofit research organization. Our mission is to advance our understanding of the mechanisms of disease and develop new technologies that will lead to actionable diagnostics and effective therapies. We believe in challenging traditional scientific approaches and inventing the future of life science research. Intramural research programs in cell biology and infectious disease are driven by small, collaborative and innovative groups.

The increasing complexity of biomedical research often requires a collaborative and/or interdisciplinary approach. CZ Biohub San Francisco seeks to attract and support outstanding early-stage postdoctoral fellows and to provide unique training opportunities in interdisciplinary and/or collaborative research. Successful CZ Biohub SF Collaborative Postdoctoral Fellows will leverage the unique research and technological capabilities of CZ Biohub SF and its relationship with outstanding faculty at our partner institutions, UC Berkeley, Stanford, and UCSF, to take on difficult biomedical research challenges.

Postdoctoral fellows will be jointly mentored by a researcher at CZ Biohub SF and a faculty member at any of our partner institutions, who need not be CZ Biohub Investigators. Prospective fellows and their mentors must develop a collaborative research proposal that leverages expertise from and involves training opportunities in both mentors’ laboratories.


Fellows must be within two years of completing graduate training (for Ph.D.s)  or immediately after completing clinical training (for M.D.s or M.D./Ph.D.s). Applications can be made prior to degree completion, but funding will not commence until after completion of the Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. Applicants need not be U.S. Residents or Citizens, but they will need to obtain the appropriate international visas from the sponsoring university.
