Program Overview

Cambridge Corporate University Postdoctoral Fellowship Program aims to expand the number of professors and executives who hold a doctoral degree and would like to become a lifelong fellow of the institute and in addition to enter the academic life of the institute as CCU professors. All graduates of the CCU Fellowship program hold the status of 'CCU Ambassador of Goodwill' in their country or region. The Program hosted by the CPI Institute of graduate studies at CCU and considered as one of the top elite programs at the university.

Each fellow in the program is given the opportunity to develop as a scholar and as an independent researcher. Ultimately the program seeks to position CCU scientists and policy analysts in leadership, teaching, research, public service and national health policy positions.

Each fellow is associated with a faculty mentor who assists in the transition to an academic career. With the help of their mentor, fellows establish their own research agenda, present their research in schools and national settings, gain experience in publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals and in obtaining grant support, participate in teaching related to their field, and learn to develop their own courses. Fellows also participate in other activities designed to involve them fully in the formal and informal life of the academic community and public service. The program also matches the requirements of senior executives and public service officers who plan for a higher career in public service or politics.
